- The Economic Freedom Fighters have once again called for Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan's removal
- This comes after Gordhan testified at the State Capture Inquiry on Monday, confirming the existence of the SARS 'Rogue Unit'
- The Red Berets insist that the unit was used as a 'weapon against the political opponents of Jamnandas'
The Economic Freedom Fighters are once again gunning for Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan, calling for his removal from Cabinet.
In a statement released following the Minister's testimony at the State Capture Inquiry, the EFF commented that:
"The EFF calls for the immediate removal of the unethical and big-headed Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan, for forming part of the establishment and existence of the SARS Rogue Unit."
The EFF insists that Gordhan had used the unit to 'turn the South African Revenue Services into a weapon against the political opponents of Jamnandas and his allies.'
The EFF has demanded that Gordhan is stripped of his title as Minister, claiming that his presence in Cabinet reveals a rot:
"Gordhan's continued presence in the Executive of the country represents a rot in the highest offices of the land that must be removed. He remains a bacteria to the democratic fabric of this country and is currently leading the greatest capture of our state institutions to facilitate their sale to his friends and cronies."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan was in the hot seat on Monday when he testified at the State Capture Inquiry.
Advocate Dali Mpofu was in the spotlight as well as he had the task of cross-examining Gordhan.
Dali Mpofu captured South African's attention with the way he went about his cross-examining of the Former Minister of Finance. Many took to social media to discuss how Mpofu went about his business.
Some felt that he was asking all the right questions and others felt that he was getting a little too emotional or subjective.
Other Mzansi social media users on the other hand felt as though the advocate was trying to set a trap of sorts. Mpofu and Gordhan had a heated exchange.
