Political analyst Aubrey Matshiqi says because South Africans fought for liberation against the apartheid government, we can't ignore the current state of politics in the country.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has secured an interdict staying the implementation of Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s remedial action against him in her report on his CR17 election campaign, which includes an order that he disclose all his funders to Parliament.
Matshiqi offers his thoughts on the battle between Ramaphosa and Mkhwebane and why South Africans need to be invested in what is happening.
In some ways when we talk about so many millions going into a political campaign of a single politician, in an African National Congress leadership battle, you are talking about why we fought a liberation struggle. And why we thought that the party would be the vehicle through which we fight that liberation struggle.— Aubrey Matshiqi, Political analyst
