A group of Democratic Alliance (DA) members have marched to the Free State government offices in Bloemfontein on Thursday. They are concerned about recent reports alleging corruption in the provincial administration.
The DA says it is now time the Free State Premier, Ace Magashule, steps down as he is implicated in acts of corruption.
The DA is pushing for a motion of no confidence against Magashule.
“We have decided to have this march right in front of this monument of corruption building that they call OR Tambo. But what is important today, we want to highlight the level of corruption since Ntate Magashule has this administration, and we believe that corruption has robbed the people of Free State, because what we need to understand when the politicians and officials they steal the money from government, they are stealing from the poor people,” said DA’s provisional leader Patricia Kopane.
