- SA social media users have slammed the ANC for its alleged corruption amid the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown
- Most of the tweeps found it amusing that the ANC will investigate the ANC-led government officials that have been accused of corruption
- They said the outcome of the investigation will obviously favour the accused ANC and government officials
Mzansi social media users have dragged the ANC for allegedly misusing the R500 billion Covid-19 relief fund that was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa in April.
Many tweeps poked fun at the ANC for announcing that an inquiry has been set up to investigate the allegations of fraud and corruption relating to the fund.
The Special Investigative Unit is currently probing companies accused of having been awarded tenders irregularly from the Covid-19 relief fund. Many of the companies that have bagged the multi-million rand tenders are associated with the families of the top ANC members.
Mzansi citizens took to Twitter to slam the ANC for "investigating the ANC" amid the corruption allegations. Their reactions were sparked by a post by tweep, @andisiwe_boya. He tweeted a picture of Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga watching herself on the news on TV. He captioned his post:
"The ANC is investigating the ANC again."
Other social media users who saw the post flooded his timeline with their views on the matter. Below are some of the comment:
"Looking forward to the other version of corruption. We have come to know a swimming pool could be a fire pool."
"The outcome will be that the ANC has found that the ANC is not guilty."
"That's how they roll. They're comical creatures those ones. Thoroughly entertaining. Did you know they have an Integrity Committee. Criminals investigating criminals."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that former president Jacob Zuma took to social media to throw shade, possibly at President Cyril Ramaphosa or the ANC-led government.
Zuma implied that the country is a mess after the ANC has recently been accused of misusing the R500 billion Covid-19 relief fund. Zuma used a Zulu proverb to describe a "person" who is eloquent but never achieves anything.
Zuma resigned as the country's president in February 2018 after intense pressure from his own party. The ANC had told him to step down or face a vote of no confidence in Parliament. He was pressured to step down before the end of his full term in mid-2019 amid corruption allegations.
