Mabuyane calls Magashule allegations 'malicious'

10 May 2021 11:28

Eastern Cape Premier, Lubabalo Oscar Mabuyane, hit back at what he called concerning claims made by the suspended African National Congress (ANC) Secretary-General, Ellias Magashule. Magashule, in an interview, alleged that money stolen from municipalities was deposited into the Premier's bank account.

"As stated before when the allegations were made in 2019, Mr Mabuyane wishes again to state unequivocally that the claims are not true and that he never received money from Mr Bam, nor he has ever received money that was stolen from municipalities as claimed by Mr Magashule in an interview with the SABC," said his spokesperson, Mvusiwekhaya Sicwetsha.

"Further to this, Mr Mabuyane voluntarily submitted himself to the Integrity Committee of the ANC which cleared his name given that no wrongdoing was found on his part by the Committee.

"However, in that interview Mr Magashule brings a new twist where he reveals that he had numerous meetings with some of the individuals, including Mr Bam, who were behind this campaign to damage Mr Mabuyane’s reputation, a matter that is cause for concern and that will be taken up internally within the organization.

"The statement made by Mr Magashule that Mr Bam was running around Gauteng because he will be killed is very dangerous and reckless, especially when not substantiated or reported to the relevant authorities."

Sicwetsha further said that; "It is also worrying that Mr Magashule claims to have Mr Mabuyane’s bank account details which makes us wonder how he got Mr Mabuyane’s bank account number.

"Mr Mabuyane regards the remarks made by Mr Magashule as a malicious defamation of his character and is considering a legal action to deal with this matter.

"He further reaffirms his commitment to the struggle to root out corruption in the movement and in society, as well as the struggle to renew the people’s national liberation movement."
