Minister Lindiwe Zulu says that the BOSASA-Ramaphosa debacle is simply a learning curve for the ruling party, one that they will be able to overcome. The Small Business Development Minister is confident that this too shall pass for the ANC.
Minister Lindiwe Zulu weighed in on the BOSASA-Ramaphosa saga that has taken South Africa by storm.
The Small Business Development Minister says the controversy is simply another learning curve for the ANC, one they will be able to overcome.
According to Eyewitness News, the minister commented on the situation while launching an initiative to grow small businesses in the private sector.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier this week that Andile Ramaphosa, Cyril's son, had admitted to doing R2 million worth of business with the infamous BOSASA.
In the aftermath following this revelation, opposition parties are calling for the president to hand his son over to law enforcement as he had vowed to do in Parliament.
Zulu is nevertheless hopeful for the ANC, saying that mistakes were bound to happen over the last 25 years:
“I know exactly what we have gone through. Even this one, it shall pass, but it will strengthen us to make sure that we do better in the future.”
The minister says that avoiding the mistakes made were not only impractical, but impossible and that the ruling party would have to band together to fix what 'hasn't gone right'.
In other news, the R500 000 donation that Cyril Ramaphosa received from BOSASA has been placed in an attorneys' trust until the allegations have been confirmed.
