Johannesburg - Cape Town-born freedom fighter and ANC national executive committee member, Tony Yengeni, has indirectly nailed his political colours to the mast by openly supporting Public Protector, Adv. Busisiwe Mkhwebane in her legal tussle with President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The legal tussle between the two comes from the R500 000 donation made by Bosasa to the campaign funds of Ramaphosa for the ANC presidency in 2017.
In a series of tweets since Friday, Yengeni has accused some journalists, political analysts and ANC members of double standards and further fuelling suspicions of division within the ruling party.
Yengeni's Twitter timeline is full of retweets of opinions of people who stand with Mkhwebane in her legal tussle. The legal matter will now be heard by the courts after Ramaphosa announced on Sunday that he would be taking the findings for a judicial review.
One tweet Yengeni retweeted - and demonstrated his support for Mkhwebane and opposition to Ramaphosa’s legal team (and by extension, against Ramaphosa) - was by Twitter user Oliver Dickson (@Oliver_Speaking).
