- The EFF wants Finance Minister Nene to quit his job before they will accept his public apology
- Nene wrote a letter to apologise for his conduct and behaviour with the Gupta family
- EFF deputy president Floyd Shivanmbu says Nene was under the Guptas' control until he turned his back on them when he became Finance Minister
The Economic Freedom Fighters wants Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene to quit before his apology for his behaviour will be forgiven.
The EFF's deputy president Floyd Shivambu addressed delegates in KZN when he spoke about Nene's apology.
The Finance Minister made a public apology in which he asked South Africans to forgive him for his lapse in judgement regarding his visits to the Gupta family. He admitted he was in the wrong, as reported on earlier by Briefly.co.za.
Shivambu says the apology will be accepted, but only if Nene resigns. He added that Nene must disclose every detail about his relationship and dealings with the Guptas
According to Shivambu, Nene was in the Guptas' pockets right from the start when Jacob Zuma became president in 2009.
Shivambu also said Nene became Finance Minister in 2014 and this was when he cut ties with the Gupta, turning his back on the people who made him Minister of Finance.
Shivambu made serious allegations, according to a report by IOL News. He said the Guptas wanted to get rid of Nene for not playing along with them anymore.
The Guptas then tried and failed to bribe Mcebisi Jonas but got Des van Rooyen to do what they want.
The EFF deputy chief added that the Guptas had a grand plan on how to sabotage South Africa and aimed to capture National Treasury.
