The Cyril Ramaphosa administration is corrupt to the core. The Auditor General in her recent report shows that only 44% of the R500 billion Covid-19 relief funds can be accounted for. This means that R280 billion was stolen! The buck stops with Ramaphosa as President. He must do the honorable thing and resign for allowing such massive corruption to happen under his watch.

Black First Land First (BLF) had long ago agitated for more money to be given to the poor as relief. We called for between R3500 and R10 000 to the ten million desperately poor people. Such amounts to the poor would have stimulated the economy.

Now that we know the money disappeared into the pockets of Ramaphosa’s friends, it’s time for accounting. BLF shall be opening a corruption case against Ramaphosa as the final authority in state affairs. Also a case shall be opened against the Minister of Finance who authorised the fraudulent expenditure.

Our people are hungry. Small businesses went under when 56% of the R500 billion was stolen! This is an abomination!

The Ramaphosa administration is too corrupt!
