ANC Speaker in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, Lenteng Mekwge, has shielded her political bosses, Gauteng Premier David Makhura and ANC Provincial Chairman, Paul Mashatile from going on record and distancing themselves from oath-breaker, President Jacob Zuma.
The DA requested that the Legislature debate whether the ANC led Provincial Government distances itself from President Jacob Zuma, who was found guilty of breaking his oath of office by the Constitutional Court.
Residents of Gauteng have been left confused by the utterances of Premier Makhura and Paul Mashatile who have indicated that they are unhappy with the national ANC’s decision to slap Zuma on the wrists and want him to step down as President.
Their comments, and the action taken by Speaker Mekgwe today, indicate that this is nothing but cheap political grandstanding and electioneering, as was the case with the contentious e-toll matter.
Again, the ANC in Gauteng has proven that it is no different from the ANC it pretends it wants to change, but rather it takes its orders from Luthuli House and not from the will of the people.
