ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa has played down the massive fallout from the Nkandla report, saying the public protector’s findings will not dent the party in the run-up to the May elections.

Ramaphosa said this in an interview outside the Victory Ministries International Church in Gelvan Park, Port Elizabeth, after delivering a speech as part of the ANC’s election campaign in Nelson Mandela Bay at the weekend.

He led a delegation of ANC national executive committee members, including Public Service Minister Lindiwe Sisulu and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, and provincial leaders, who went door to door in communities, churches, taverns and sports events in an effort to garner votes.

Their visit followed that of President Jacob Zuma, who also campaigned in the city last weekend. – Kathryn Kimberley, Tremaine van Aardt, Thulani Gqirana and Mkhululi Ndamase

    Sometimes I wonder about all this money spent for “Securety Upgrades” for Zuma, R246 Million, and he is probably still dipping his “unprotected wik” in HIV and AIDs infected honey pots all over the land and merely taking showers afterwards. Just think how all this securety will help his unprotected wik. Or do you think they also spent some of the money down this alley???

    hopefull the Nkandla fiasco will drown the ANc and the president in it’s fallout. we can only but hope. obviously the report has made a dent in the ANC otherwise it would not have been mentioned. we all know that when the ANC say that one thing has happened then in actual fact the opposite has happened. very few people still believe the ANC lies. i hope that this election will make the difference. people it only takes one vote to stem the tide of corruption and fraud. be that vote.

    What business would tolerate a quarter of a billion rand (read that again) of shareholder’s money being spent on the chief executive’s private home?

    Government is supposed to be MORE accountable than business, not the other way around.

    Empowerment is not about enriching a tiny elite. It is about making the good things of life accessible to everyone by making quality education accessible, making it easier for micro-entrepreneurs to scale up and ensuring that basic services actually work.

    Mr Ramaphosa wants the people who voted his party in last time to vote for them again so that he and his buddies can continue their champagne life style with wine farms,luxury cars,luxury travel, and luxury homes like Nkandla whilst the poor in the Eastern Cape live in shanties,their children study in mud schools with third rate teachers and they sit unemployed.This is the man who has enriched himself since 1994 to the extent that he paid R18 million to buy one bull and owns a gigantic wine farm in the Western Cape! This man is terrified that without your vote he won’t have you all subsidising his opulent lifestyle! The same sheep will vote for the A.N.C. again because they have n’t the brains to realise that they are being fleeced! Baaa -baaa! baaa!To get something different you have to do something DIFFERENT!!!!!! Keep doing the same old thing and you will get the same old thing!
