“Cyril is coming for you" - SA’ warns the RET gang after this happened to Bathabile today in court.

Bathabile Olive Dlamini is the president of the African National Congress Women's League and a member of the ANC's national executive committee. As Minister of Women and Social Development in the Presidency of Kenya, she also served as Minister of Social Development in the Kenyan government.

When President Ramaphosa reorganized his cabinet, she and her RET staff were the first to be fired.

She appeared before a Johannesburg court earlier today, when she was accused of perjury. Supra Mahumapelo and Des Van Rooryan acted as her allies.

The constitutional court accused Babethile Dlamini of lying under oath during the 2017 Sassa crisis. There's little doubt that Babethile lied, but she claims to have made an honest mistake and apologized profusely for it.

After an investigation determined that Dlamini had concealed the extent of her involvement in the Sassa calamity from the committee, Babethile was found guilty of perjury.

Nevertheless, she will learn today if she will be sentenced to prison time or merely fined. Because of technical difficulties, Babethile was worried that she would have to go through the trial again. Fortunately, the problems were quickly resolved, and the trial was moved to a new location.

Since she was convicted of perjury for the second time in a month for denying the court order, it looks that Babethile's legal difficulties are finished.

According to SABC's Abongile Dumako, former Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini was convicted guilty of perjury by the Johannesburg Magistrate Court.

Their message to other RET forces, such as Ace Magashule, was clear: You will be held accountable for your activities. For individuals perceived as opponents of the organization, this was wonderful news.

Cyril's coming is a matter of course now that you and your companions (Ace and Nihaus) know what happened to your pal. A worried user wrote in a warning after Babethile was found guilty."
