Ruling Party Resists South African President's Anti-Graft Push

President Cyril Ramaphosa has faced pushback against his proposed ban on civil servants and cadres doing business with the state. This comes after the special African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC) anti-corruption meeting where Ramaphosa said the party should step aside and allow non-aligned businesses to benefit from the government's contracts with the private sector. The ANC has already faced scrutiny over reports of high-ranking government officials and their families benefiting from Covid-19 personal protective equipment (PPEs) contracts.
