President Cyril Ramaphosa has implored ANC NEC members and those deployed in government to engage and implement the recommendations that would come out of the Zondo Commission.  

Ramaphosa was delivering a political overview at the three-day virtual ANC NEC Lekgotla currently under way. 

President Ramaphosa has conceded that the ANC and its government will be criticised in the Zondo Commission report for its Deployment Committee and for the work of their MPs and their parliamentary structures.  

The president said serious allegations have been levelled against some of their deployees with a concerted effort to link that to the ANC
and portray it as corrupt and incompetent government. He has urged party members to be ready to address these perceptions and develop concise messages before Justice Raymond Zondo releases his report.
 
On the Constitutional Court ruling to have elections between October the 27th and the 1st of November, the president said they will conduct
their campaign and mobilise under the pandemic conditions insisting that all will be done in line with COVID-19 regulations.
