In parliament on Tuesday, EFF MP Nazier Paulsen rose on a point of order on behalf of the EFF to call for Minister of Mineral Resources Gwede Mantashe to resign and hand himself over to authorities.

Mantashe reportedly admitted to bribing Sunday World journalists to have a sex scandal article about him spiked, but he has since denied any such admission. Paulsen called for parliament to recognise that the alleged admission by the minister was against the executive’s code of ethics and undermined South Africa’s democratic values.

He repeated the EFF’s earlier assertion that “a man who is willing to bribe journalists is willing to be bribed himself and cannot be trusted with public office”.
