- Jacob Zuma handed in a sworn affidavit at the ConCourt in support of his comrade, Tom Moyane
- However, the affidavit hints at President Ramaphosa's involvement, or at least knowledge, of state capture
- It looks like Zuma has decided to take his replacement down with him
Jacob Zuma has been keeping politics interesting for years, making headlines and causing waves.
The former president is at it again, this time shrouding the current president in a cloud of doubt.
According to a sworn affidavit handed in at the Constitutional Court on 20 November by Zuma, President Ramaphosa was well aware of the important decisions taken by presidency.
In other words, he knew about state capture.
The South African reports that the affidavit comes in support of former SARS Commissioner Tom Moyane, but clearly hints that Ramaphosa isn't as innocent as he'd like South Africa to think.
Zuma's affidavit is a thinly veiled shade at Ramaphosa, and it seems that if the former president is going down, he's taking his replacement with him.
Here's what the final, shocking paragraph said:
Finally, I wish to confirm that at all material times hereto, President Ramaphosa diligently served as my Deputy President and he would have been familiar with most important and relevant decisions made by the cabinet or the presidency. I trust that my input and confirmation of the President’s allegations will be of assistance to the court
Zuma earlier showed his support of Moyane and South Africans weren't surprised. The two have been thick as thieves since forever.
The former president is helping Moyane fight to get his job back.
