The minister of transport in South Africa, Mr Fikile Mbalula was spotted on the ground, helping his political party with campaigns. It is the time of the elections, and every party is putting in extra hard work to impress the citizens and win the elections. It takes courage and determination for the citizens to trust you and have faith in your motion. As things stand, the ruling party is more advantageous, as it has been winning multiple municipalities across the country, during the local national elections. It has its own flaws and tramples, and it is a great opportunity for oppositional parties to capitalize. One of the African Newsroom interviewers has been on the ground, trying to cover the story. The ANC was busy campaigning for the next local national elections, when the interviewer ambushed Fikile Mbalula with a question that saw Fikile Mbalula moving away quickly. It is not clear if Mbalula was running away or he did not feel like the question needed his opinion. He left his colleague to answer the questions alone, and his escape sparked debate on social media. Mbalula focuses more on transport as this is his priority duty.
The question was loud and clear. His colleague was asked whether he had any involvement in the Special Investigative Unit (SIU), and Fikile Mbalula did not look relieved, leading to his quick departure. No one wants to get in trouble with the SIU. The corruption that exists within the ANC makes its top leaders get provoked when the SIU is mentioned. People doubt if Mbalula is not corrupt by the action he took. He has his own reasons why he did not want to stand the interview and left his colleague to answer questions.
“The way things have turned out to be ugly at ANC journalists now make silly mistakes because they are scared that ANC people have always been involved in corruption.”
