Spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said the party wants President Cyril Ramaphosa to immediately dismiss Gigaba‚ because in his previous portfolio at home affairs‚ he facilitated the Guptas attaining citizenship in SA‚ helping them qualify for black economic empowerment deals with state-owned enterprises. The party also questioned Gigaba’s role at public enterprises‚ which involved changes to state-owned entities’ boards.
