It is true when they say in politics, you should not trust anybody. Even the comrades themselves can turn against each other loyalty is not certain at all. In the ANC we know that leaders depend on allies and we have seen this happening either to keep the leaders in their positions no matter how wrong they might be or to remove them from their position. Being related to a certain leader can guarantee a position in the government, especially the ministerial position.
Some of the most know allies of Ramaphosa are the likes of Fikile Mbalula. Many people have been saying that Fikile Mbalula is a traitor because he is on both sides. During the presidency of Jacob Zuma, he was his ally. And now that it is Ramaphosa, he is singing the praise of Ramaphosa and we even saw him fighting with other ministers on social media just to protect Ramaphosa, but now it looks like it is no longer glory in the camp for Mbalula.
It has now been alleged that Ramaphosa has kicked Fikile Mbalula out of the committee meeting on the government economic sector investment. It is believed that he attended the meeting unprepared and also failed to read cabinet memos. It appears that Fikile Mbalula has not been performing when it comes to attending meetings and he always comes unprepared.
It is also believed that the likes of Pravin Gordhan have complained about his behavior along with other cabinet members before and he continues. All the ministers get the memo beforehand and it is said that even Mbalula gets the memo in time but only prepares on the night before the meeting.
Now people are saying that it is because Pravin Gordhan is not happy about his behavior and it is even believed that he might be sag as the minister. Pravin is in charge and Ramaphosa is just taking orders from him. Now, who is going to fix the potholes if Mbalula is no longer there?
