EFF vows to come for Cyril Ramaphosa, as he is ‘as corrupt as Jacob Zuma’


The EFF, along with Cope, challenged Ramaphosa on the first post-Zuma parliamentary sitting yesterday, saying he did not qualify to be president.
President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to face a very robust challenge from the Economic Freedom Fighters, which claimed he is as corrupt as his predecessor, Jacob Zuma.

The EFF, along with Cope, challenged Ramaphosa on the first post-Zuma parliamentary sitting yesterday, saying he did not qualify to be president.

However, he was elected unopposed. The EFF argued that before a president was elected, parliament must first be dissolved for its role in undermining the country’s constitution.

EFF leader Julius Malema said the National Assembly had failed to hold Zuma accountable for the Nkandla saga, and to protect the constitution. Similarly, Cope maintained that Ramaphosa, the entire executive and all members of parliament were found by the Constitutional Court to have violated their oaths of office and failed to uphold the constitution in the Nkandla matter – therefore none qualified to stand for the presidency.

Cope leader Mosiuoa Lekota said all politicians – except those who had not yet taken oaths of office – were illegitimate and not eligible for the presidency, including Ramaphosa. But their proposal was defeated when Ramaphosa was elected unopposed.

Earlier, Lekota said Zuma should be impeached, in line with the Constitutional Court ruling, instead of being allowed to resign.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa said they hoped the matter would be debated in parliament and voted for. But if the ANC rejected it, they would decide what to do next.

“Usually, the ANC rejects these things and later regret it. With their euphoria over Ramaphosa, they might be tempted to reject the opposition motion – forgetting that people still remember their corruption,” Holomisa said.

  1. The EFF has proven to South Africans that they have been a party that uncovers corruption especially in govt.
    Therefore one cannot doubt anything the EFF says unless one knows otherwise. Having come out of the ANC the EFF is actually qualified to expose the wrong doings in the ANC. I believe that one cannot doubt the sincerity of the EFF in their quest to have clean and credible governance. It is a pleasure to listen and watch EFF members in parliament when they interact with people in their oversight role.
