Johannesburg – ANC Youth League president Ronald Lamola has slammed ministers for poor service delivery and called for their firing.
He was speaking at the ANCYL’s Nelson Mandela lecture in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, on Saturday.
Lamola singled out Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa, Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa, and Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga for criticism.
“Those who say it was not their responsibility to deliver books must also be fired,” he said.
Lamola also criticised Molewa for not delivering water to Carolina.
He argued that ministers were quick to make claims that they would deliver but were quick to deflect blame when they came up short.
“When things go bad you say it is not your responsibility,” said Lamola.
He criticised Mthethwa for having a security fence built around his house with public funds.
“You cannot have a person where they built a security fence around his house and he does not know… how he gets in and out of his house,” asked Lamola.
He said public officials who conduct misdeeds must be fired regardless of who they support in the ANC.
