The Democratic Alliance (DA) is set to submit an application in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) to President Cyril Ramaphosa in a bid to compel him to release the report into the African National Congress (ANC) abuse of an Air Force jet.

Ramaphosa received the report from Minister of Defence and Military Veterans Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula which could potentially state the circumstances that led to the Air Force jet flight taken by ANC delegates to Zimbabwe.

“The DA has previously requested President Ramaphosa to immediately release the report on the ANC delegation who used the air force jet to visit their counterparts in Zimbabwe but this has not happened.”

It is unacceptable that the Minister reports back to the ANC about the ANC’s failures and South Africans are left in the dark,” said DA Shadow Minster of Defence Kobus Marais on a statement.

Marais continued: “We cannot allow a situation where a report, potentially detailing a flagrant abuse of scarce state resources is viewed and decided upon by President Ramaphosa alone, whose track record in holding his ANC comrades accountable for corruption is depressing.”

The DA believes that the ANC cannot “legitimately” investigate itself. “The President must hand over this report so that checks and balances that are available in our democratic system can properly scrutinise it and hold those guilty accountable.”
