- Ace Magashule, one of those accused of planning to dethrone President Ramaphosa, again showed his loyalty to Jacob Zuma
- Magashule stated that Zuma is the best leader the ANC has ever had
- However, he insists there is no plot to replace Ramaphosa with Zuma
Ace Magshule has once again shown his undying loyalty to former president Jacob Zuma.
In Magashule's opinion, Jacob Zuma is the best leader to come from the African National Congress.
I will continue to meet many leaders of the ANC and President Zuma is a part of the ANC. He is one of the best leaders ever produced by the ANC.
This comment by Magashulu again highlights the divide within the ruling party. It also confirms the rumours of his plotting with Zuma to oust President Ramaphosa in the minds of many South Africans.
Magashule says he is very close to Zuma and was with him since the apartheid regime, when they went underground and collected information, according to The South African.
However, Magashule insists there is no plot to get rid of Ramaphosa. He says it is impossible to overthrow Ramaphosa because the ANC is intact.
In response to the rumours, President Ramaphosa passionately addressed those who “meet in dark corners” and plot to divide the ruling party, as reported on by Briefly.co.za.
