Motsepe SPEAKS: "You can not commit crime or be involved in corruption and get away with that

South African National Editors' Forum held their annual general meeting on Saturday morning, and Confederation of African Football head Dr. Patrice Motsepe was the keynote speaker. Motsepe, who is Cyril Ramaphosa's brother-in-law, gave his opinion on the State Capture report after it was released. "It's impossible to commit crimes or engage in corrupt practices and expect to avoid consequences. Due to this, the findings from the Zondo Commission needs to be thoroughly examined "To put it another way, Motsepe stated. 

After being asked a general question concerning the Phala Phala affair, Motsepe provided a short response. All he said was, "It is wonderful that media is exploring the charges and that the law enforcement must do its work without fear." He avoids any President who may have ties to him at all costs. Summing up is all. Actually, Motsepe shouldn't share his thoughts on the Zondo report with anyone. The crime that has been perpetrated at phalaphala farm is supposedly the work of his brother-in-law, Cyril. When he should have been shouting, why didn't he? 

Motsepe and Ramaphosa's possible involvement in the incident has been the subject of speculation. An official criminal complaint was filed against President Cyril Ramaphosa last year, and it involves his billionaire brother-in-law Patrice Motsepe. Really Democracy leader Srinivasan Naidoo filed a criminal complaint against Ramaphosa and Motsepe in KwaZulu-Natal on June 18th, alleging illegal activity over the sale of Ramaphosa's Ankole cows. This occurred when President Ramaphosa sold Patrice Motsepe four Ankole cows for a total of R4.7 million. 

Although Patrice Motsepe is correct in his assessment of the Zondo Commission report, his emphasis on scrutiny should also be applied to his brother in law. 

Meanwhile, Dr. Patrice Motsepe, the 7th President of the Confederation of African Football, has said that teaching young people about independence and freedom while keeping the government in check is the best legacy someone can leave.
