Ramaphosa says the ANC enabled State capture
President Cyril Ramaphosa has admitted that members of the ANC were responsible for and allowed State capture.
In a broadcast, Ramaphosa said the State was captured and that as the Zondo commission of inquiry into State capture unfolded, clarity would become more apparent on that.
Ramaphosa said not many other political parties openly admitted their errors as the ANC has done. Many high-ranking ANC officials have already been implicated in corruption and other irregularities at the Zondo commission.
Maimane urges black professionals to trust the DA to reduce black tax
DA leader Mmusi Maimane says if black professionals don't put their faith in his party during next week's polls, they risk "exacerbating" the issue of black tax.
Black tax is a term coined to define financial support to extended family within black communities.
Maimane insisted the DA, which is the largest opposition party in the country, is the only real alternative that can help revive South Africa's ailing economy and build a capable state.
