ANC Veteran, Mavuso Msimanga Calls For Cyril To Step Aside And Clear His Name


ANC veteran, Mavuso Msimanga has argued that the ruling party should ask president Cyril Ramaphosa to step aside, until scandals that he is facing have been resolved.

Msimanga says the president has got an enormous burden and should step aside and let someone else lead while he focuses on clearing his name.

President Cyril Ramaphosa's allies have been very vocal in calling for other comrades such as Ace Magashule to step aside when he got charged for corruption. Ironically the same people who were saying step aside is ANC policy, are now fighting tooth and nail to make sure that Ramaphosa doesn't step aside.

Mzwanele Manyi, the spokesperson for former president Jacob Zuma said he agrees with everything that Mavuso Msimanga has said concerning Cyril Ramaphosa, and believe it is the right call being made for the president to step aside.

"I agree with a lot of what Bab'Msimang is saying including that Ramaphosa must step aside. In fact I want Ramaphosa to step down. 

But I disagree vehemently with the notion that things have plateaued. I think things have rapidly declined," said Manyi.

What some comrades are saying is that president Cyril Ramaphosa should have taken a long leave if his conscience has pushed him to do so, but since he refused to voluntarily do so, he might have to be forced out.

"My question is what has happened to his own conscience? Or does it only become a factor when dealing with others who might be threats to his power? Obviously, if he had just some level of accountability, he would have taken leave long ago and allow investigations to continue," they said.

With the recent judgment by the High Court, Economic Freedom Fighters says president Cyril Ramaphosa definitely has a case to answer in the Marikana massacre, and that they have long maintained that Ramaphosa must be held accountable.
