"We’ll succeed in this task. South Africa will soon be corruption free."
President Cyril Ramaphosa went on to say that platforms, like the State Capture Inquiry, which seek to uproot corruption need support.
"We should stand behind them because what they’re seeking to do is to rid our country of the culture of corruption, which has sifted into the centre of our body politics."
President Ramaphosa has also pledged his support to Minister Pravin Gordhan who recently announced his intention to press charges against the Economic Freedom Fighters.
The EFF used the attention aimed at the State Capture Inquiry to protest against Minister Pravin Gordhan, launching allegations at not only the minister but his daughter too.
