ANC came out in defence of Minister Gordhan

The African National Congress has come out defending the Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan, saying the attacks on the minister are an attempt to undermine the work of the state capture commission.

Economic Freedom Fighters' (EFF) supporters have been picketing outside the commission this week while Gordhan was testifying. They have accused him of being the greatest enabler of the state capture project, and of being corrupt. They have also accused him of funding campaigns of certain presidents within the ANC.

Zizi Kodwa this afternoon emphasised that they are not here just to defend Minister Gordhan, but to defend the work of the commission, because they believe that the EFF is using the name of Gordhan to threaten some witnesses that may continue to come to the commission.

Kodwa says South Africans must be united to defeat what he calls the “demon of Trumpism” before it undermines democracy.
