The South African Communist Party (SACP) has launched the #HandsOffOurDemocracy campaign.
The party says there are factions in the country which are on a mission to defend those implicated in wrongdoing in the state capture commission.
SACP spokesperson Alex Mashilo says those fighting against democracy are using reports to fight against those rooting out corruption.
It is very clear that those individuals who are implicated in that corruption have a mobilisation surrounding them and we will not be able to name a single individual without naming all of them.— Alex Mashilo, Spokesperson - SACP
The South African public can see the mobilisations going all over the country to defend those who are implicated in the corruption of state capture.— Alex Mashilo, Spokesperson - SACP
We can't really say the Public Protector is part of the fightback but there cannot be any denial that part of those who are fighting back are making use of reports to advance their fight back agenda.— Alex Mashilo, Spokesperson - SACP
