Political Desk: Gigaba trying to project himself as being 'born again': Analyst

It's being claimed that re-appointed Home Affairs minister Malusi Gigaba is trying to wipe clean the slate of his former tenure as head of the department.

Political analyst Prince Mashele told Bongani Bingwa on the Political Desk, that Gigaba is trying fool South Africans.

Gigaba is pretending that we don't know what he did before; by trying to project himself as if he is born again.

READ: Gigaba: Gupta brothers are not citizens

Mashele says it is up to President Cryil Ramaphosa to decide what to do with Gigaba and says the latest scandal surrounding the Gupta's citizenship puts a dent in the 'new dawn' promised by the president.

Here we are this morning we are talking about a capturee that is Malusi Gigaba, instead of focusing on the serious business that the new Ramaphosa administration is supposed to do.

Mashele also spoke about Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane and the calls for her to step down.

He says people like Mkhwabane don't resign easily.

She has a credibility crisis and looks like she is captured, because if you look at the investigation she has conducted, she tries very hard to exonerate people who are captured.
