- Former MP Makhosi Khoza has spoken out against the alleged corruption of the ANC
- Khoza said that she had to resign from her position because she was calling out the ANC's actions
- The former MP says that those who oppose corruption are at risk of losing their jobs in politics
Former ANC MP Makhosi Khoza gave a testimony at the State Capture Commission of Inquiry yesterday and spoke about the shortcomings that the political party has.
According to Khoza, she decided to resign from the ANC when she was prosecuted for her stance on anti-corruption. At the time, she was calling for the former president Jacob Zuma to pay the price for corruption.
Khoza said that she placed the ANC at the crime scene of corruption during the Commission of Inquiry. She did not agree with the political party's wrongdoings.
There were two other women who found themselves in hot water with the ANC after the political party declined to put them back in parliament.
The women were former Eskom inquiry chairperson Zukiswa Rantho and Feziwe Loliwe who passed away in a car accident in 2018.
"To me it had become clear that the ANC had adopted corruption as its official policy," said Khoza.
She said that the only thing she did was stand up for what is right and she didn't bring the ANC into low esteem with the public.
Khoza then decided to resign from the ANC and move on because she didn't agree with the party's alleged corruption.
"People who perform their oversight function properly in the ruling party are severely punished and their political careers are destroyed and I am speaking from experience.," she said.
