'ANC officials fingered in state capture should quit before month end' - Malema

Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, has asked President Cyril Ramaphosa to take the country into his confidence about his dealings with scandal-plagued Bosasa.

Last year, the president faced backlash from opposition parties after making contradictory statements about payments made by the company to his son, Andile, and his African National Congress (ANC) Presidency campaign.

Speaking at a media briefing on Wednesday, Malema called on all African National Congress (ANC) officials who’ve been implicated in the state capture commission to resign from Parliament and Cabinet before the end of the month.

EWN reporter, Bonga Dlulane has more on the story.

He [Malema] says that it his [Ramaphosa] opportunity now, he must come out and say he lied to parliament last year when he said that he did not know that the R 500 000 he got from Bosasa was for him, that it was not for his son. Malema says if Cyril Ramaphosa takes repsonsibility then some of the ANC people might follow.

The EFF is also calling for more security for former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi who is currently testifying at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry.

Malema says Agrizzi's evidence is so damning that there are people in the ANC who will go as far as killing Angelo Agrizzi. He says you are dealing with people here whose bread and butter is being threatened.
