Durban - The Radical Economic Transformation Champions, long-time supporters of former president Jacob Zuma, have slammed the SACP for "protecting President Cyril Ramaphosa and his handlers" in the wake of the leaked emails saga related to funding for his presidential campaign.
Nkosentsha Shezi, chairperson of RET Champions, said that the Communist Party had also relinquished its historical mission of acting as the vanguard of the working class whilst providing the ideological compass to the ANC.
“Whilst the ANC has over a century remained a party of both capitalists and proletariat, it has historically been biased to the working class through the input of SACP and Cosatu.
“This is proven to be history under the leadership of the current central committee led by Solly Mapaila. The media statement by Solly Mapaila protecting President Cyril Ramaphosa and his handlers is a bid to cover up the pre-paid state capture project of Nasrec,” Shezi said.
Shezi said that Mapaila and Nzimande's attack on Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane was proof of their disregard of the Constitution of the Republic, Chapter 9 Institutions and the general rule of law.
