Well, I would disagree with him on this one. The moment he ascended to a position giving him access to the trough those who were slithering around him started plotting against him. I truly devastated at Jolidee's tragic death! My love and condolences go to his family, friends and colleagues ! 💔💔 I think the ancestors of the ANC are unhappy with how comrade Leadership is doing things
