SACP: Comrade Pravin has our full support

South African Communist Party (SACP) says summons issued against Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan are a 'pretext to have him removed from office'.

SACP says this is part of a bid to weaken the National Treasury’s struggle against corruption and corporate capture of government, which Gordhan has been leading.

SACP Deputy General Secretary Solly Mapaila says the NPA's decision to charge Gordhan with fraud is an abuse of South Africa's Constitution and an act of aggression against democracy.

Mapaila says the SACP will defend Gordhan because they consider him to 'a comrade of integrity'.

While we recognise the fact that it is important for Pravin Gordhan like all of us to respect the rule of law, we reject with contempt that it deserved the abuse of state institutions for petty-served interests in the name of political interests.

Solly Mapaila, SACP Deputy General Secretary

To comrade Pravin, we can assure him of our support. He is a comrade of integrity. We know if anything would have happened he would not go to steal from the South Africans. He has given so much for this country, rather those who have raised so-called struggle credentials and went on to steal from the public.

Solly Mapaila, SACP Deputy General Secretary

Mapaila says President Jacob Zuma could have stopped the conspiracy against Gordhan, but 'he decided not to at the expense of our economy'.
