The South African Communist Party (SACP) is not backing down from their call for President Jacob Zuma to step down.
The call follows the President's decision to axe Pravin Gordhan as finance minister and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas.
Zuma told the SACP that he has the intelligence report showing that Gordhan and Jonas mobilised prominent people in London and the United States (US) to act against the state.
He also said there is an irretrievable breakdown in his relationship with Gordhan.
SACP second deputy general secretary, Solly Mapaila, says they are acquiring details of the intelligence report.
We have written to the inspector general office to ask for the verification of the authenticity of the report, whether it comes from the our State institutions- why was it commissioned, on what basis, who commissioned it, and what methods were used.— Solly Mapaila, SACP second deputy general secretary
The African National Congress's (ANC) alliance partner has put forward a list of demands, including the immediate implementation of the Public Protector’s requirement that an independent judicial inquiry be established to investigate state capture allegations.
It also wants lifestyle audits for all ministers, deputy ministers, director generals and board members of state owned companies.
The SACP also wants the revoking of the citizenship and residential rights of the Gupta family, and wants under-performing misters to be dealt with.
