The African National Congress celebrated its 101st birthday on Saturday.
President Jacob Zuma delivered his January 8th Statement to ANC members at Kings Park Stadium in Durban, where he committed his party on fighting corruption in the country.
Opposition Parties welcomed his speech but the Democratic Alliance said there are few things that need to done to show that they are serious about fighting corruption.
DA Shadow Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development Debbie Schafer said then President Zuma needs to take the follow steps, he must instruct his attorneys to make available the “spy tapes” and other relevant information that the Democratic Alliance has been fighting to obtain since the 783 charges against him were withdrawn by the NPA.
“If the President has nothing to hide then there is no reason to continue obstructing our access to them.” said Schafer.
Schafer adds that for the people of South Africa to believe that something is being done about corruption the president must also appoint a permanent head of the Special Investigating Unit, which has now had an acting head for over a year, furthermore appoint a permanent head of the National Prosecuting Authority.
