ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe says the manner in which President Cyril Ramaphosa acted is exemplary.

Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams has apologised for breaking the lockdown rules.

Ndabeni-Abrahams was seen in a picture circulating on social media having lunch with former African National Congress (ANC) MP Mduduzi Manana during the lockdown.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has placed her on two months special leave which one month will be unpaid.

Watch the apology here:

The ANC has welcomed the decision taken by President Ramaphosa against Ndabeni-Abrahams.

It is exemplary the manner in which the president has acted.

Pule Mabe, Spokesperson - ANC

Political analyst Dr Ralph Mathekga says, politically, firing Ndabeni-Abrahams at this point in time would take Ramaphosa's attention from the pandemic.

Realistically, Ramaphosa cannot fire Ndabeni-Abrahams at this point in time.

Dr Ralph Mathekga, Political analyst

The sanctions given would not come out as sufficient for some South Africans who are facing criminal charges after violating the lockdown. Realistically, I would say the moment does not allow it to get harsher than this.
