- These supporters accuse the president of having double standards when it comes to secret meetings and persecuting ANC members
There is a serious rift in the African National Congress. Members of the ruling party are divided in loyalty to current President Ramaphosa and former president Zuma.
Now, supporters of ANC Secretary-General, Ace Magashule, are upset that President Ramaphosa spoke up about the alleged plot to oust him. Magashule is a known supporter of Jacob Zuma
Magashule reportedly met with Zuma to discuss strategies to oust the current leader, according to an earlier report by Briefly.co.za.
If Magashule's supporters are to be believed, President Ramaphosa and his followers held secret meetings to plot his downfall. One supporter stated that concerns were raised about these secret meetings, as reported on by The Mail&Guardian.
The supporter, who is a provincial leader, added that President Ramaphosa's supporters make lists every day, in which people are marginalised.
The supporters also claim there is a selective persecution of ANC leaders who didn't support Ramaphosa's bid to become president.
Magashule's supporters use the president's lack of action against certain senior ANC members who financially gained from the facility management company Bosasa as proof of this alleged selective persecution.
President Ramaphosa wants the ANC to plot against poverty, not each other:
