Deputy South African President David Mabuza has called on political leaders to be wary of reiterating divisive statements, including those that make corruption about the race of the perpetrators. Times Live reports that answering questions from National Council of Provinces delegates on an online platform on Wednesday Mabuza said it was important to “be mindful of [the country’s] past, where we come from”, adding that they “are trying to build a nation”. Mabuza also condemned comments that were “racist in their nature” which were made around the murder of Senekal farm manager Brendin Horner last month whether they came “from an ANC member, a DA member, or an EFF member”.
