Ramaphosa fires a prominent ANC member with immediate effect because of this reason. It seems like firing and suspension of members is now the new order of ANC. The ANC set tongues wagging when word broke out that the president’s spokesperson Khusela Diko had reclaimed her position.
This made many people furious because she is being accussed of a big tender scandal. However unfortunately for her she didn’t stay in office for too long as she was later fired with immediate effect. It has been reported that she was fired with immediate effect after she refused to name other companies which were involved in the tender scandal with her.
Even though she has been relieved of her duty as the President’s spokesperson she still holds a position in the public service. Her immediate dismissal as the President spokesperson was confirmed by the Minister in the presidency Mondli Gingubele. In his statement Gingubele had this to say “the presidency has completed a disciplinary process against Diko for her failure to disclose her interests in certain companies, as required by public service regulations on the disclosure of financial interests.”
However people are really suprised that the President saw that due to her corrupt ways she can not remain his spokesperson but her corrupt ways are not that bad to prevent her from being in the public office.
It seems the ANC is a bit hypocritical on one hand they are saying no to corruption but on the other hand they are recycling the same corrupt members and keeping them in the system.
