Ramaphosa breaks fast with Muslim leaders in Cape Town

President Cyril Ramaphosa’s addressed the Muslim community at a Ramadan programme and breaking of the fast (iftar) on Thursday evening.

Ramaphosa was among several other dignitaries and religious leaders hosted by the Greater Athlone Parliamentary Constituency Office MP Faiez Jacobs and the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) at Islamia College in Lansdowne.

President Ramaphosa said that the government would finally resolve the district six matter.

He also vowed to root out corruption in South Africa;

“We have seen what corruption has done, it has robbed our people of the resources that should be available to improve their lives. The state capture that we had a few years ago will come to an end, we will bring it to an end because all of us should only be captured by the very strong determination of improving the lives of our people and not by other interests.

“Yes, many steps are being taken to rid our country of corruption and those who are corrupt and have pursued corrupt ways, will continue to fight and fight to the end because their life revolves around corruption but we will end it, and they will go where they belong.”

The president’s comments come amid a political fiasco this week after the ANC suspended its secretary-general, Elias Magashule, over graft charges.

A defiant Magashule has however said he is not going anywhere. Instead, he said he was suspending Ramaphosa from his position as ANC president.
