The ANC and its government has two options: it either it roots out corruption or dies because of corruption says Gwede Mantashe. Times Live reports that Mantashe, who is also a leader of the SA Communist Party, said there are lessons to be learnt from the Communist Party of China, which abhors corruption and deals with it decisively. Taking a veiled dig at suspended ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule, Mantashe said it was embarrassing that some ANC leaders had become so desperate to cling to positions at all costs they were now elevating the country’s constitution against that of their party.
