Police Minister Fikile Mbalula had no shortage of things to say after former Hawks boss Berning Ntlemeza pitched up for work on Monday.

Ramatazzz had some stern words for Ntlemeza‚ who “absconded with a state vehicle”. And he had a few unconventional things to say too‚ which generated a series of guffaws on social media.

Parliament must now act against Ntlemeza: DAMbalula: a warrant of arrest should be issued for Ntlemeza 

In case you missed his media briefing at the elite police unit’s offices in Silverton‚ Pretoria on Monday‚ here is a quick recap:

● General Ntlemeza entered the management meeting of the Hawks ... and ordered the head of the supply chain to give him a car‚ which is roaming around the streets of Pretoria.

● When I say he is roaming the streets … he is roaming the streets wherever he is.

● The police is the state‚ it’s not just a banana republic.

● (Answering a question from a journalist) Don’t make me run around. Don’t make me repeat myself over a matter I have clarified. There is free internet and free everything and you’re entitled to get the judgement for yourself.

● He (Ntlemeza) is not defying me he is defying the law. Me and him we can box in the streets ... he can say anything about me.

● There is no movie here. We are running a country here not a banana republic.

● At least while I am still here …. I'm not going to allow that nonsense of ensuring that there is a banana republic‚ up and down like KC and Jojo and we are singing. No! A concert is a concert and people must go and dance in a concert.

● I am accelerating in full speed and if I am about to be caught for over acceleration let it be. I am on a 300km per hour and even Ferrari doesn’t drive at that speed. I am on the Gautrain speed now.

● Did Robert McBride go to Pastor Mboro? And address the masses about his job?

● It seems we have exhausted the questions. I'm getting a bit emotional. I need some prayer from pastor Mboro too.

Deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa said on Sunday it was undeniable that the ANC was going through a period of greater turbulence and uncertainty than at any other time since 1994 and unless problems in the ANC were resolved electoral support would continue to decline.

Speaking at the Chris Hani Memorial Lecture in Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape‚ he said there was a strong sense among the people that the ANC no longer represented their hope.

He added that recent political developments had thrown into focus the divisions within the ANC and brought to the fore a lot of broader grievances about the direction of the country

“The manner and the form in which the cabinet was reshuffled a few weeks ago heightened those tensions within the movement.” Ramaphosa said.

“Whether we want to dismiss it or not‚ the reality is‚ that triggered the heightening of those tensions‚ causing some comrades to engage in bitter exchanges in public statements and on social media‚” Ramaphosa added.

SACP Eastern Cape‚ Provincial Secretary Xolile Nqatha did not mince his words either when he reiterated the call for President Jacob Zuma to step down.

He said it was one thing to say that the power of the ANC had shifted because as it stood it had “completely left”.

Presidency denies renovations to Nkandla 

“Power has gone‚ Power has shifted and it’s one thing to say that the centre doesn’t hold or the centre is weak but the centre is gone and it’s in Saxonwold.”

Nqatha said the country was no longer led by the people but instead the friends of the President who called the shots.

“It can not be that we elect a leader and he decides to impose his friends on us and our movement‚” said Nqatha. Among the speakers at the lecture was axed deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas who praised the SACP for standing against evil‚ exploitation and abuse of power.

Jonas said there was an increasing sense that the country was either blind or refusing to acknowledge where the country was.

South African Communist Party supporters cheered former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and booed Mxolisi Kaunda of the ANC’s provincial executive committee at a mini rally in Durban on Saturday.

About 500 SACP supporters‚ dressed in red T-shirts‚ gathered at Curries Fountain stadium in Durban to celebrate the life‚ times and legacy of the former leader of the South African Communist Party‚ Chris Hani.

SACP provincial chair‚ James Nxumalo‚ called on the crowd to behave‚ saying:“We are different and distinguished as the Communist Party. This is in memory of Chris Hani so the way we act should reflect such. Iron discipline should distinguish the SACP from others.”

Isaac Luthuli of the Young Communist League said: “There is no radical transformation‚ there is only radical looting. Leaders steal for their families and friends. Because of the way things have been happening the YCL doesn't see the need for the president anymore.”

The opposition 'will not set the agenda' of the ANC‚ says KZN leader 

Following the booing of Kaunda‚ Gordhan took to the podium to cheers from the crowd‚ when he said everyone still needed to develop their iron discipline.

“The communist party has a long tradition of organising our people at a door to door‚ factory to factory level. Lets go back to our people at a door to door level and explain to them what is state capture‚ what is corruption‚ how does tenderising take place and how do we build a better democracy and what do we actually mean by radical economic transformation which changes the lives of all 55- million people in South Africa and not just a small group‚” said Gordhan.

Kaunda later addressed the media‚ saying the main focus of everyone there was to commemorate the life of one of the giants.

“We don’t need to take any detour. Our main focus is radical socio-economic transformation which we are already engaging in because our enemy is the white monopoly capital. We are disappointed about the posture that some of the leaders of the alliance are taking. Whenever they occupy the podium they say Zuma must go. To us they turn themselves to become the mouthpiece of the opposition and those who are carrying the heavy agenda on the regime change of our country. If there are differences those differences must be brought within our structures. You want a united alliance‚” said Kaunda.

Zuma gets a boost on his Zululand home turf 

South African Communist Party general-secretary Blade Nzimande called for the Guptas’ citizenship to be revoked.

“We never struggled so that they can take this beautiful country of ours and hand it over to an immigrant Indian family‚ the Guptas family. We must stand up and fight against this because our country is being sold. We are calling for the revoking of citizenship to the Guptas. The Gupta family play a toxic role in our country‚ a very toxic role with some of our own comrades.

“Our revolution is in danger. The danger which it is facing is an investment strike by monopoly capital. As well as the billions of rands that Pravin was trying to stop that are illicitly leaving this country. Our other danger is the weakening of our movement because of factionalism. It is because of some of these things that the SACP just like Cosatu has reached a very difficult decision that the president must step down as part of finding a solution to these problems. It is not a nice thing but we think it is necessary to say it‚” said Nzimande.

He also said the SACP wants a judicial commission of inquiry to investigate state capture.

Fact that Malikane accompanying Gigaba on US roadshow a concern‚ says DA 

“When we raised this people asked why are we attacking the Guptas and not monopoly capital. Transforming the banks is not for families‚ it’s for the workers and the poor of this country to be able to benefit. Monopoly capital is our strategic enemy. But how do you fight monopoly capital when your state-owned companies are down because they have been looted left right and centre. We don’t want both monopoly capital. We don’t want looting. We don’t want the Gupta family. They are not our answer to monopoly capital‚” said Nzimande.

It is a bit unusual for a media briefing to come with back-up dancers and a CD containing songs of praise for one of the main speakers, but that was the scene at Hlaudi Motsoeneng's media briefing on Wednesday.

The surreal briefing covered a wide range of topics - from Motsoeneng's issues with "so-called journalists" who told Parliament about what working for the SABC was like, to the controversial suspended COO's  political aspirations.

WATCH: Hlaudi Motsoeneng for president? Let us first have a woman president - he says A R20‚000 CD in praise of Hlaudi - will it make it onto the SABC's 90% local content music charts? ‘I enjoyed being fired and coming back’ says Hlaudi Motsoeneng to share his thoughts on the SABC‚ but why?
