The SACP has come out in full support of President Cyril Ramaphosa as he braces for the upcoming legal battle against Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
The ally of the ANC is adamant that it will not allow individuals, irrespective of the role they played in the struggle.
Speaking at a state capture 'fight-back' rally, Solly Mapiala said that the SACP will never allow the counter-revolution to succeed:
“We’ll not keep quiet when these forces that are coalescing and coordinating the fight-back campaign because all of them are sharing a similar thing; they’re all afraid to go to jail.”
Mapaila also addressed the issues facing President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying that they were aware of opponents to his clean-up programmes:
“These are testing times, but he must know that the masses of our country are behind him. The programmes he has started to clean up, we support these programmes.”
EWN reports that the SACP called on citizens to protect South Africa's democracy at all costs.
Briefly.co.za reported that the EFF is calling on Ramaphosa to take a leave of absence in order to deal with the Public Protector's finding that he had deliberately misled Parliament over his R500 000 BOSASA donation.
