Political analyst Mpumelelo Mkhabela discusses the probable reasons behind Mbeki's shock attendance.

Trending, right now, on The Money Show:


The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield asked political analyst Mpumelelo Mkhabela to explain the possible meaning behind the re-emergence of Mbeki.

His attendance is significant… We had excellent credit ratings during his time… He had a lot to say about the state of the economy during that NEC meeting.

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, political analyst

State Capture, corruption… indirectly vindicated his [Mbeki] stance on Jacob Zuma…

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, political analyst

Former President Jacob Zuma is there as well… He’s been attending since he was kicked out…

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, political analyst
