The Democratic Alliance (DA) wants Deputy President David Mabuza to step aside after reports that he allegedly received millions of rands while he was still the Premier of Mpumalanga.
An investigation was launched into a donation that was allegedly made into Mabuza's personal account by Eskom. The amount deposited into the account was R30 million.
According to a report by The Citizen, a letter that is currently in possession by News24 shows that money was "strategically" placed into the DD Mabuza Foundation account by former Eskom executive, Frans Sithole.
DA MP Ghaleb Cachalia says that David Mabuza should be added to the list of members who are to step down from the political party.
“If the ANC is consistent in the application of its own resolutions, it must add Mabuza to its list of members who should step aside while they’re under investigation for corruption," said Cachalia.
Cachalia is still reeling at the fact that the country has been facing power cuts and serious cases of load shedding according to News24. According to the MP, Cachalia, the "fat cats" in the ANC have felt no shame in weakening Eskom for their own personal gain.
Briefly News previously reported that Cyril Ramaphosa's call for Ace Magashule to step aside has been backed by the ANC Top 6. President Cyril Ramaphosa has received backing from the ANC Top 6 for Secretary-General Ace Magashule to step aside from his position immediately.
The political party is currently waiting to hear the outcome regarding Magashule's cases of fraud and corruption. According to a report by BusinessLIVE, Magashule said that he would not voluntarily leave his position with the ANC.
This was despite the ruling that those who are facing criminal charges in the party should face suspension or leave their posts.
