“I DON’T KNOW” repeatedly was the response Pule Mabe, African National Congress spokesperson gave to the interview on Kaya FM this morning, on how and why the ruling party used the private to its talks with ZANU-PF in Zimbabwe recently.
Mabe a seasoned spin-doctor and senior member of the ANC should have shown his prowess when put to the corner by morning hosts show Thabiso Sikwane and David O’ Sullivan, when asked simple questions such as (what led to the decision to use the private Jet and whether the delegation headed by ANC’s secretary general Ace Magashule did go for quarantine upon return), amongst others.
A very irritated Mabe in response said “I don’t know” repeatedly on questions that could have been easily dealt with by the person of his calibre. That’s why he was appointed in the first place to spin-doctor any controversy and bring confidence to the party and its Constituents. Alas what transpired this morning was unthoughtful and disappointing.
Yes, Pule you threw yourself under the bus and you’re to blame not anyone else.
Now the question on everyone’s lips is whether the statement repudiating what led to the jaunt to Harare was legit and honest when it read “Finally, is that in our quest to achieve this mission, we travelled in an unusual manner and profusely humble ourselves where we went wrong during the lockdown and will reimburse the government for the costs incurred on behalf of our delegation. Our delegation is under quarantine in line with our lockdown regulations,” read the statement.
Another apology will be taken with a truck load of salt, Pule…
