David Mabuza apologized for the mistakes made by the ANC, claiming that the party is making every effort to rectify the fallout from them. The Deputy President is hot on the campaign trail, but with senior officials implicated in state capture, the ANC has been forced to take a repentant stance.
David Mabuza, Deputy President of the ANC, has apologised for the mistakes made by his party.
Addressing congregants at the FSC Church in Kagiso in the West Rand, where he had been campaigning, Mabuza is now calling for forgiveness.
Mabuza explained that the mistakes made are being rectified as best as the party can manage, and that those implicated in state capture were responsible as individuals.
While ANC officials are doing their best to garner support for their party ahead of the May elections, testimony at the Zondo Commission has dealt a heavy blow to South Africa's trust in them.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Angelo Agrizzi, former COO at BOSASA, testified that the ANC Top 6 had received R10-12 million from the infamous company. The company had also supplied a 'war room' to the party to help them maintain an upper hand in previous elections.
According to Eyewitness News, Mabuza emphasised that the individuals implicated in corruption and other offenses should take the blame and not the ANC as a whole.
