African National Congress (ANC) president Cyril Ramaphosa has warned that corruption could be the death of the governing party.
The stern warning comes amid a myriad of scandals gripping the ANC – with several high-ranking officials implicated in the alleged looting of state resources.
Despite the serious allegations, the ANC remains at loggerheads about how to root out corruption from its higher structures.
The governing party hopes the ‘step aside’ resolution will give some direction.
On Wednesday, Ramaphosa joined Fort Beaufort locals in the Eastern Cape in celebrating the 150th birthday of struggle stalwart Charlotte Maxeke.
He called on ANC members to embody Maxeke’s principles of good conduct.
“What I also do know is that she was such a woman of integrity, a woman of substance and that she would have said ‘no’ to corruption,” said Ramaphosa.
“She would have known that corruption in the African National Congress is like poison and it kills.
“First it will kill the organisation and then it will kill our people’s appetite to support the African National Congress and she would have refused to participate in any corruption,” he added.
