Mike Gaut­eng Makhosi Khoza is one of the most prin­ci­pled MPs. In fact, a lead­ing light in both leg­is­la­ture and com­mit­tee, sadly sur­rounded in ev­ery direc­tion by in­com­pe­tence, cor­rup­tion and, in the main, by col­leagues who try to max­imise ex­trac­tion for their own self­ish needs rather than con­tribut­ing to mak­ing South Africa good for all. Lo­gan KwaZulu-Natal Yes, she has the right to speak out pub­licly. She has seen that the ANC she loves has be­come a cor­rupt or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Even worse are those par­lia­men­tar­i­ans who, in fear of los­ing their ben­e­fits, turn the other way.

State cap­ture did not start now. Why didn’t they vote in favour of re­mov­ing Ja­cob Zuma be­fore?

The less said about the SACP the bet­ter. They brought Zuma into power. Sello Gaut­eng I think she rep­re­sents the ANC of Oliver Tambo, Nel­son Man­dela and Chris Hani. You can see now it’s no longer about the coun­try or the peo­ple that elected them, they are only serv­ing their own in­ter­ests and sub­si­dis­ing their lav­ish life­styles that are cor­rupt to the core. The cur­rent ANC is re­ally sick­en­ing. Phangani N’wab­venula Gaut­eng I think Dr Makhosi Khoza has a right to speak out pub­licly be­cause the ANC failed to call the ANCYL to or­der af­ter threat­en­ing to harm her and her kids.

It is un­for­tu­nate that the ANC did not as­sist her be­cause of her views on the pres­i­dent and ANC mem­bers of Par­lia­ment.

I am of the view that what she has raised about the ANC mem­bers is true be­cause they are no longer rep­re­sent­ing the 11 mil­lion peo­ple who voted for them in 2014.

In­stead, they lis­ten to them­selves and al­low the pres­i­dent to en­rich him­self and his fam­ily with pub­lic funds.

I also fail to un­der­stand why Mr Mthembu says that Dr Khoza is illd­is­ci­plined and needs to be dis­ci­plined. She is not cap­tured like other ANC mem­bers.

I think the ANC must first dis­ci­pline Zuma, who vi­o­lated the Con­sti­tu­tion. How can a per­son be dis­ci­plined for speak­ing the truth?
