Cape Town - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa called upon “all and sundry” to take care of what they say and do to avoid destabilising the country's economy, so that the outside world would not be led to believe government is not functioning.
He was answering oral questions from MPs in the National Assembly and responding to DA leader Mmusi Maimane, who raised the issue of the perceived war between President Jacob Zuma and Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
“There is a war between the president and Treasury,” Maimane said. “You yourself said that we couldn’t afford to be a government ‘at war with itself’. What will you do to put this war to bed? How will you make it stop?”
