As the state capture inquiry continues to unearth more atrocities, many South Africans are asking whether the ANC is still a party that can be trusted. This question comes just months before the general elections in May 2019.
Once again, the ANC reputation was tarnished when more shocking claims were made during the Zondo Comission, an inquiry set up to investigate allegations of state capture.
Briefly.co.za reported that former Minister of Public Enterprises, Barbara Hogan, testified at the State Capture Inquiry on Monday, 12 Novembe.
Hogan explained how the ANC was at the core of the state capture, and how Zuma ran the ANC like a mafia ring, as reported on by News24.
According to Hogan, Malusi Gigaba, Gwede Mantashe, Siphiwe Nyanda, Jessie Duarte, and Jeff Radebe were all in on the ruination of State-Owned Enterprises.
And of course, Zuma was there too.
Hogan and her late husband, Ahmed Kathrada, are considered some of the ANC's finest, and her testimony came as a scalding reproach.
The former minister testified how Zuma interfered in the proper procedures and processes that were meant to be followed.
She stated that Zuma was set on having Siyabonga Gama as the CEO of Transnet. However, Gama was accused of irregularities.
Now, President Cyril Ramaphosa has to ensure the ANC clinches to its title in next year's elections.
Meanwhile, in an interview with eNCA, Ralph Mathekga, political analyst, said voters must look at Ramaphosa as a brand rather than as leader of the ANC.
"I think a lot of people who will be voting ANC in the 2019 elections will not be voting for the institution because of its strength.
"But, I think they will be voting ANC, because it happens to have a president who has a sense of what's right and what's wrong."
