Mamabolo says the SACP is also protesting against the prospect of another downgrade, subsequent to the S & P Global and Fitch ratings, declaring South Africa sub-investment grade.

We are here at Treasury to ensure our country is never again turned into a playground for corporate interest, particularly the Gupta dynasty that has been manipulating our supply chain policies, undermining governance of state-owned enterprises that have been hard at work, even to grab and capture the entire financial system.
