'Cronin is an open racist'

ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu is adamant President Jacob Zuma has appointed "an open racist" to his Cabinet in Deputy Transport Minister Jeremy Cronin.

He said he had noted a number of instances that suggested Cronin, who was jailed for seven years under apartheid, was anti-Africans. Supporting his accusation he said Cronin allegedly told a visiting Cuban delegation that there was widespread corruption among African leaders of the ANC. - Kingdom Mabuza and Zukile Majova
