Ramaphosa Demands Explanation Over The Use Of Airforce Jet For ANC Harare Trip

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Friday directed the country’s Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula to explain the circumstances that led to her sharing a flight to Harare with a senior delegation of ANC leadership.

The African National Congress (ANC) delegation flew to Harare on Tuesday for talks with the ruling ZANU PF party on political and economic problems in Zimbabwe.

The high-powered ANC delegation travelled on a South African airforce jet, sparking widespread criticism on the use of state resources for party business.

Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula flew to Zimbabwe to discuss regional issues following a recent summit of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

A statement from Ramaphosa’s office said:

In the interest of good governance and the prudent and ethical use of state assets, the president has directed the minister to provide a report within 48 hours that will set out the circumstances around the flight and the passenger list.
