Ramaphosa also spoke about state capture saying that money that was stolen through corruption and state capture needs to be recovered.

This is the first time he has publically called for the recovery of monies and for consequences.

Manyathela says Ramaphosa is emphasising that they need to ensure that there is accountability even at the top level in a way referring to some minister implicated in the Gupta leaks and Jacob Zuma's family, such as Duduzane Zuma.

Ramaphosa has urged the SACP to take a pause on the question whether they should stay within the alliance or leave and properly deliberate on the matter.

Manyathela says the congress has already taken a resolution that it will wait until the outcome of the ANC elective conference in December before it makes a decision at its special congress next year.
