We expect Ramaphosa to fire Gigaba, the President needs to clean house - Cosatu
The Constitutional Court dismissed has dismissed Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba’s application for leave to appeal a high court ruling which found that he lied under oath during the Fireblade Aviation case.
There have been mounting calls for Gigaba to step down after the Public Protector advised President Cyril Ramaphosa to take 'appropriate disciplinary action' against him.
Chief Whip of the Democratic Alliance (DA) John Steenhuisen and Cosatu spokesperson Sizwe Pamla agree that the minister must go.
We expect the president to fire him. We raised this issue in February this year when there was a cabinet reshuffle to say there are people that should have been let go at that particular time. It was already in the public domain that these are compromised characters.Sizwe Pamla, Cosatu spokesperson
This is such an important litmus test for the president because it is very easy to move against your opponent - it's easy to fire someone like Tom Moyane, different story when it is one of your own associates in your cabinet. This has always got to be the tougher call. I am afraid if the president fails the litmus test here, it is going to call into question his real commitment into cleaning up the rot in government.John Steenhuisen, Chief Whip of the Democratic Alliance
