Moeletsi Mbeki has been very critical of the ruling ANC and President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Moeletsi Mbeki, the brother of former president Thabo Mbeki said that white people did not steal South Africa’s land, but were fighting for it.

Mbeki spoke on Wednesday on 702 in a wide-ranging interview ahead of the May 29 national and provincial elections.

The brother of the former president also spoke of the African National Congress (ANC) political successes and failures over the past three decades of government.

The whites conquered

Mbeki said white people fought for the land they own.

“There was a war between blacks and whites and the whites won the war. They didn’t steal the land, they conquered it.

When asked if the “conquest system” was unfair because white people had more resources, Mbeki simply replied that black people fought and lost.

“No, they fought against it, they were defeated and when you are defeated you have to accept defeat.”

Criticism of the ANC

Mbeki has been very critical of the ruling ANC and President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Last year he said South Africa was at risk of more corruption as the ANC came close to losing power.

He said South Africa is no better off under Ramaphosa’s presidency.

“No, no, we are not better off. Over the last ten years, the per capita income of South Africans has declined, which means we have become poorer and are still getting poorer today, so we are not better off.

Mbeki said public officials are at the heart of corruption.

“The painful thing is that the closer the ANC gets to losing power, the more corruption we are going to see. »

“They have to take it out of this trough and put it in their pockets because they think that after (the) elections they will no longer be in power. So I fear that corruption will make us suffer even more in the months to come,” Mbeki said.

Ramaphosa ‘is not a leader’

Mbeki had previously said Ramaphosa was not a “leader but an agent of the party”.

He said Ramaphosa has one of the best public relations machines he could imagine, “even better than Bell Pottinger”, but he had failed as president of South Africa.

“This man has totally failed as president, he can’t decide anything, but many people believe he can save South Africa.”

“Cyril is not really a leader. He was never a leader. He is an apparatchik or party agent but he presents himself as a leader. He is not a leader, if we put him next to Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki and even Jacob Zuma.

Mbeki said Ramaphosa failed as a leader because he believed in nothing.

“He goes with the flow. He wakes up in the morning and says “which way the wind blows” and “I’ll go.”

Mbeki also said the ANC, as a collective, must be held accountable for the country’s failures.
