Statement on the report into the landing of a private jet at Waterkloof

19 May 2013

The SACP notes the announcements made today at the press conference of the Justice and Crime Prevention Cluster.

Whilst we await the full report in order to understand fully what happened and for us to be privy to all the information in front the Ministers, the SACP would like to urge government to release the full report and for relevant authorities to act swiftly on those implicated. The SACP reiterates that no stone must be left unturned in dealing with this saga.

The SACP agrees with the sentiment raised at the press conference on the issue of name-dropping which is posing a major threat to our civil services and to carrying out duties objectively. In 2009 when we campaigned for the election the movement promised o do everything to maintain clear distinct lines between the work that elected officials must do and that which must be undertaken by the civil service. Name dropping is not only used for tenders but various other means to manipulate process. Our officials should never allow themselves to be bullied in carrying out their duties in line with prescripts of the law and our policies.

The SACP has also noted a desperate media drive to nail everything to the President of the Republic and ANC even when cabinet through a cluster of Ministers is acting on the matter on behalf of our government. This media drive confirms the lack of appetite on the part of others to deal with the issue at hand but to continue to create doubt about the President, tarnish his image and pose him as a rudderless leader. The SACP rejects this insinuation.
