"Why Has Cyril Not Fired This Clown? Zuma's Ally Goes After Mbalula


ANC veteran, and former president Jacob Zuma's staunch ally, Carl Niehaus has launched a scathing attack on transport minister Fikile Mbalula who was kicked out the meeting by president Cyril Ramaphosa.

It is reported that Fikile Mbalula has been attending important meetings unprepared, and contributing very little to the discussions as a minister in his portfolio, a factor which has prompted some of the ministers to complain about his incompetence.

Even though documents are presented to him so he could read ahead of the meetings, Fikile Mbalula is accused of not reading them, as he will be busy with something else.

This repetitive incompetent behaviour is reportedly the reason why president Cyril Ramaphosa had to kick him out of the meeting as he was not prepared as always.

ANC veteran, Carl Niehaus who weighs into the matter questioned why president Cyril Ramaphosa hasn't fired Fikile Mbalula after numerous complaints from several ministers concerning his incompetence.

Niehaus argues that for as long as Mbalula is not fired for his embarrassing incompetence, him being kicked out of the meeting will just be like blowing hot air which yields no tangible results.

"Why has Cyril Ramaphosa not fired this clown? Anything less is just blowing hot air. Surely there must be accountability and consequences for Fikile Mbalula's embarrassing failures.

Since he’s not fired, we must conclude twerking and licking works to keep your job with the president," said Niehaus.

Fikile Mbalula is one of the comrades who belong to Cyril Ramaphosa's camp and have been calling for the president to avail himself for a second term. Critics cite that this call for Ramaphosa's second term is being pushed by people like Mbalula as they are trying to safeguard their jobs.

This is not the first time Mbalula has been exposed as an incompetent minister, one of South African investors Rob Hersov once articulated that "Mbalula is stupid" and that if it was not his political affiliation to ANC, he would not have got a job anywhere else.
