Minister in the Presidency Mondli Gungubele, Defense Minister Thandi Modise and her deputy, Thabang Makwetla, began talks with the war veterans on Thursday to discuss reparations. There was a disagreement on how the meeting should take place and the ministers were then prevented from leaving the hotel, Gungubele said on Twitter.

Johannesburg – The Stellenbosch University Director of School of Public Leadership, Professor Zwelinzima Ndevu viewed the hostage of Defence Minister Thandi Modise, Minister in the Presidency Mondli Gungubele and Deputy Minister of Defence Thabang Makwetla as a strategy to undermine the leadership of President Cyril Ramaphosa.

“The fact that the hostage situation and his prayer event happened on the same day is a coordinated strategy to undermine the leadership at a political level as well as at a governance level,” said Zwelinzima Ndevu.

This is after the National Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (NATJoints) released a statement citing that a hostage situation report had been reported.

Zwelinzima Ndevu suggests that the event was meant to undermine the system and ultimately undermine the president of the republic who is also the president of the ruling party.
