Solly Mapaila of the SACP discusses President Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address

Solly Mapaila, the First Deputy General Secretary of the South African Communist Party, will address the Cape Town Press Club after President Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address.

Mapaila has been a vocal critic of corruption within the African National Congress (ANC) and the South African government. The “hands of Zuma” campaign picketed his home in 2017 and threatened him and his family.

Last year, Mapaila defended Minister Pravin Gordhan for exposing corruption.

Mapaila was a member of Umkhonto weSizwe and operated outside of South Africa prior to 1994. He has held his current position since 2012.

He will respond to questions.
