|Demanding accountability from leaders is African: Lindiwe Mazibuko|
More about the ANC's response to the Democratic Alliance's parliamentary leader: "Mthembu suggested that Mazibuko 'get a life' after she said Zuma’s comments, made at an ANC gala dinner last week attended by captains of industry, implied that by backing the ANC businesses would reap financial rewards, 'which can only be leveraged through state resources'. Mazibuko called on Zuma to clarify whether his statement was government policy and to retract it if it was not."
MP Mazibuko's original statement which angered the ANC: "She said the remarks had the potential to 'severely compromise the principle of good governance'. 'With high levels of corruption already costing the economy billions of rand, hurting the poor and vulnerable the hardest, such a comment is deeply irresponsible. However, it comes as little surprise. This is further evidence of how President Zuma fundamentally confuses the role of the state and party, and how the government continues to misuse public money, which should be spent on the poor,' said Mazibuko."
