The South African Communist Party’s (SACP) General Secretary, Blade Nzimande, says there is still much to be done to ensure the drive against corruption and state capture is sustained.

Nzimande says the party has welcomed the placing of the North West provincial government under administration and resignation of the province’s premier.

Supra Mahumapelo resigned last month after weeks of violent protests calling for him to step down and lack of service delivery and allegations of corruption.

Nzimande was speaking following the SACP’s Central Committee Meeting in Johannesburg.

“The central committee noted with approval the placing of the North West provincial government under administration and resignation of North West premier following sustained popular pressure. There is still much to be done and it is important that the early momentum in the drive against corruption and state capture is sustained. In this context we must neither exaggerate nor underestimate attempts at a fight back. The sheer scale of the rot that had set in becomes more and more apparent every day.”
