The ActionSA leader said Ramaphosa is behaving like an accused individual by staying mum not to incriminate himself. Mashaba added that Ramaphosa prioritises the African National Congress NEC rather than the country.

Speaking to TimesLIVE, Mashaba stated that his political organisation has always maintained that there is no good or bad ANC, and the report proved their assertions. Mashaba also stated that ActionSA has always believed that the ANC is a criminal enterprise.

Mashaba stated that the country could not afford another president facing criminal charges, but South Africans feel that Mashaba and other opposition parties are optimistic.
