The ANC is concerned over the legal battle between party leader President Cyril Ramaphosa and Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane. The ruling party is worried that Ramaphosa's attention should be on growing the country, but is instead turned towards this issue.
The African National Congress has expressed their concerns over President Cyril Ramaphosa's seemingly constant battles with the Public Protector.
Briefly.co.za reported that Ramaphosa was occupied with defending himself against adverse findings put forward over a R500 000 BOSASA donation.
The president also approached the courts to stall action recommended against Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan, after Mkhwebane implicated him in wrongfully approving the early retirement of a top SARS official.
ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe told SABC that the party wants the matter laid to rest so that Ramaphosa can continue his work improving life in South Africa:
"We are looking at these developments with a spectrum of concern of course. It is within our interests that these things are addressed with the necessary speed so that we could all return and put our attention where it matters the most, which is to lead the people of South Africa."
