The African National Congress (ANC) has come under fire for breaching its own lockdown rules at a time when ordinary South Africans are beckoned to obey them
Fikile Mbalula, Transport Minister has reacted to criticism after posting pictures on social media, which clearly displayed more than 50 people gathered outside the late Andrew Mlangeni’s home.
Mbalula reported that people “spontaneously” gathered to pay tribute to the last of the Rivonia Trialists on Tuesday.
“The people came forward and the marshals tried to push them back but it was held up for about 10 minutes and the coffin was released into the house and everything came to normal. Nonetheless, the ANC would not gather people and seek to address them in an environment of the coronavirus.”
