Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula has been very vocal on social media about his political stance on various matters. Recently the minister stated that it is hard to defend certain members of the ANC as they had been warned about the Gupta family.
Mbalula stated that they were warned that the Guptas would causes a 'crisis' in the country. He added that leadership did not pay attention to the warning, thus making it hard to defend the same leadership.
The minster went on to say should he or other members be dismissed from the African National Congress for speaking the truth, so be it.
Take a look at Mbalula's interview with Newzroom Afrika below:
Below are just a few of the responses to Mbalula's statement:
"Fikile for Presidency..."
@minayza said in response:
"Lol... @MbalulaFikile is crying, do you perhaps mind to share that which crisis are they causing?"
"Clearly Mbalula has Damascus experience... Politicians evolve, there is nothing wrong in that. If one’s eyes are opened it calls for celebration. Better than quiet ministers who don’t take a stance..."
@MGCINA59344601 added in response:
"I like Mbalula very much, the guy isn't afraid to speak his mind for the benefiting of his stomach maybe you can say but at the end of each day he is doing it fine for me. ANC must be destroyed internal and external appreciate his job."
