    Ramaphosa will accept fate if Zuma chooses to axe him – Independent Online

    "I serve at the pleasure of the president, and if I'm fired, it will be at the pleasure of the president," Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Thursday.

    Ramaphosa was asked by opposition party members in the National Assembly to confirm or deny speculation that he was next in line to be axed by President Jacob Zuma.

    "When I was appointed deputy president, I accepted the appointment because it's the president's prerogative to appoint anybody to the executive and if a decision is to remove me, I will accept it... and I will continue serving the people of South Africa in one form or another," Ramaphosa told MPs.

    The question to Ramaphosa came a week after Zuma chopped one of his most fierce critics, South African Communist Party leader Blade Nzimande, from his cabinet.

    Earlier this year, Ramaphosa came out publicly against Zuma regarding the firing of Pravin Gordhan, the country's respected former finance minister.

    Gordhan was, and remains, outspoken about the looting at state-owned enterprises, something Ramaphosa too was grilled on.

    The deputy president said the scale and depth of corruption at South Africa's state-owned companies like Eskom, Prasa and Transnet, which are central to economic growth in the country, was only now coming to light.

    MPs were not buying it, insisting his silence on corruption had worsened the problem.

    "We have a president who the ANC elected with 783 charges of corruption over his head. You were silent then... The law enforcement agencies have been captured, you were silent.

    "Your silence has aided and abetted the prevalence of corruption in the country...Why should we believe you now when all along you have run away from realities presented before you?", asked Inkatha Freedom Party MP Mkhuleko Hlengwa.

    Ramphosa even faced a tough question from within the African National Congress ranks with Zukiswa Rantho, who chairs an inquiry into corrupt activities at Eskom, asking why state capture was only being probed now given that a witness told the inquiry state capture should have come under investigation several years ago.

    "These incidents of corruption are only now spewing out in the manner that all of us have become aware of them and to this end... the various parliamentary committees have now been set up to go through all these," he answered.

    "The admission that will be made is yes that as news coming out about what is happening in various state-owned enterprises, we have delayed and taken too long to act against those involved."

    ‘KZN killings a broader societal problem’ – Independent Online

    KwaZulu-Natal ANC chairman Sihle Zikalala on Thursday told the Moerane Commission of Inquiry in Durban “a deeply ingrained culture of violence” was at the core of the province’s political killings.

    Zikalala testified earlier in the day that according to the party’s calculations, based on law enforcement reports, 80 politicians had been killed in the province since 2011.

    Thirty people from various political parties had died since the start of 2016, he said, with 19 of these coming from the ANC.

    “The ANC wishes to caution against, and dispute the view that the killings are the ANC’s problem alone.

    "It is our submission that these killings are a broader societal problem, one that was inherited from our past apartheid-colonialism era, whose legacy lingers until this day,” said Zikalala.

    He said that “in the main”, violence in the province could be attributed to contestation for political power, careerism in political office, inter-political conflict, a possible “third force”, inadequate transformation of the state security apparatus, family disputes and Izinkabi (hitmen).

    “This contestation for political power is backed by the belief that holding office comes with influence and control over state resources, which can be accessed for material benefit and self-enrichment.”

    Inter-political conflict manifested mainly in hung municipalities where killing the councillor of a governing party created the possibility of changing the power balance and leadership.

    Zikalala said that external influences of the province’s apartheid past could not “exactly” be characterised as a third force, but that the party was “ill-equipped to rule out its hand, perhaps in new forms”.

    He said that more needed to be done to transform the state’s security apparatus.

    “The integration of the erstwhile apartheid-state South African Police with the KwaZulu Authority’s Zulu Police (ZP) in the case of our province has been broadly successful.

    "However, we do contend that there may well be remnants of the past still hovering around, and quite unhappy to see peace and stability prevail, especially in this province.”

    Some killings were clearly a result of family disputes, he said, as some successful convictions had concluded.

    The role of hitmen in the taxi industry had been highlighted in many taxi industry killings, he said.

    Zikalala’s testimony continues.
