FROM: Office of the Secretary General, ADeC
SUBJECT: ADeC calls for President Ramaphosa to step down with immediate effect!
DATE: Wednesday, March 27th, 2019
EMBARGO: Release immediately
The last 2 weeks have been revelation after revelation showing that the president is not fit to hold office. From the failure to manage the Eskom crisis, to this morning’s revelations regarding what appears to be a corrupt 2,5-million-rand relationship between Andile Ramaphosa, President Cyril Ramaphosa and Bosasa, is the file nail in the coffin proving that this is unfortunately a delinquent president.
What is now clear, is that when Ramaphosa spoke to parliament last year regarding his, and his family’s relationship with Bosasa he was clearly being dishonest. This is absolutely unacceptable, it is the role of parliament to hold the president accountable, and when the president attempts to deceive parliament, he is actively undermining the constitutional oversight that parliament needs to maintain. It was this kind of corrupt dynamic that allowed disgraced former president Jacob Zuma to engage in whole sale corruption, destroy our economy and undermine the constitution.
Repairing the damage caused over the last 10 years under the corrupt ANC government of Jacob Zuma is a monumental task, and simply put, cannot be led by an individual who is operating under a cloud of corruption, who is being selective when prosecuting corrupt behaviour or revealing corrupt activities.
South Africa deserves better. Now more than ever, we need an executive who is able to place their full attention on challenging the various crisis affecting our country including Eskom, low growth, corruption and the utter collapse of government departments as well as state owned enterprises. Simply put, President Ramaphosa is clearly not up to the job, and now needs to step aside and allow a principled and effective individual to lead the country and fight the scourge of corruption plaguing our nation.
