Gwede must name the two journalists he bribed, says Eusebius

Eusebius McKaiser says the admission by Minister of Mineral Resources Gwede Mantashe that he paid journalists R70,000 to make a story go away should be taken seriously by the ANC and President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The _Sunday World _reported that Mantashe paid journalists money to bury the story about his alleged relationship with a younger woman.

The South African National Editors' Forum has indicated it will ask the minister to name the journalists.

The first disturbing thing is that Gwede voluntarily tells the nation 'I paid R70,000 to journalists'. That alone should be a reason for the man to quit his job.

Secondly, why is it that he could be so brazen in volunteering this information? You only volunteer that information if you think there is no consequence.

Here is my prediction, nothing will happen to Gwede because President Cyril Ramaphosa is conflict-averse and the ANC doesn't give a damn about ethics.

It is also unethical for the journalists to have accepted the bribe and Gwede must tell the nation who the two journalists are.

They should all be dismissed, including Gwede.
