Pravin And Fikile Mbalula's Fight Takes a New Twist as Both Try to Win Ramaphosa's Favour

The fight between Fikile Mbalula and Pravin Gordhan has moved from verbal exchange to media war as both men try to outsmart each other before president Cyril Ramaphosa. It should be noted that the fight began after it was reported that Fikile Mbalula was sent out of a meeting by President Cyril Ramaphosa during a high Profile cabinet meeting. It was reported by several media groups that it was some ministers who prevailed on Ramaphosa to send Fikile Mbalula out of the meeting in the most embarrassing way. However, Mr Fikile Mbalula aka Mr Fix went to the media to reveal that it was Mr Pravin Gordhan that was behind his ordeal, saying that Pravin wants to smear his good image before Ramaphosa. Pretoria's news wrote, “Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula has allegedly accused Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan of leaking damaging information about him in order to undermine and cause a rift between him and President Cyril Ramaphosa”.

The rift between the two minister is becoming wider and wider and the December Nasrec is the fast approaching. Many people believe that the CR faction are not united, as infighting and battle for supremacy is overshadowing most of the things they are doing. Each one of them want to be the special person before president Cyril Ramaphosa. They would like to be his favourite person, and they do not mind using others to climb. This is precisely what the Transportation Minister, Mr Fikile Mbalula is accusing Pravin Gordhan of doing to him. From all indications, one can see that the relationship between the two ANC heavyweights is already strained. They are in a battle of supremacy. A popular media group, IOL wrote that, “Fikile Mbalula allegedly accuses Pravin Gordhan of trying to cause a rift between him and Cyril Ramaphosa”. Now their battle has crossed over to media verbal attack on each other, and president Cyril Ramaphosa is watching.
