President Cyril Ramaphosa has said we must fight corruption together as a country and bring back the faith the public had in government.
He mentioned that the sacrifices rendered by John Nkadimeng and those who were involved in the fight for the future of our country, cannot be put in vain.
The President further condemned those who made use of state power daily for the enrichment of themselves.
“We must work together to rid our society of the scourge of cronyism and corruption. It is of the gravest concern that we are confronted with the misdeeds of those abusing the access to political and state power to enrich themselves. Day by day, we learn more about the actions of thieving looting and corruption. Day by day, the trust of our people is eroded.”
During his speech, he delivered the eulogy at the Special Official Funeral of the late struggle stalwart.
Nkadimeng died at the age of 93 last week.
He was among the 156 congress activists that were detained during the Defiance Campaign in 1952 and also charged with treason.
The struggle stalwart later went on exile and took refuge in various neighbouring countries.
Nkadimeng served in the ANC and played a role in the founding of trade union federation – Cosatu.
