- Speculation over an upcoming meeting between President Cyril Ramaphosa and ex-president Jacob Zuma has everyone wondering what will be discussed
- The ANC has admitted to being uncertain to the reason for the meeting but maintains that it is nothing unusual
- This follows a Sunday Times article speculating that the two men will discuss state capture, Zuma’s corruption charges and comments the ex-president has recently made
The ANC ( African National Congress) has admitted to being uncertain as to the reasons why President Cyril Ramaphosa will meet with ex-president Jacob Zuma.
The Sunday Times has reported that the President had been advised to discuss issues such as state capture and Zuma’s corruption court case with the former leader.
The paper had gone on to say that Ramaphosa had also been advised to have a direct conversation with Zuma to lay out his worries over comments made by Zuma.
Zizi Kodwa, ANC head of Presidency and acting spokesperson for the party, has said there is nothing unusual about the meeting.
“We took a decision subsequently in this election to meet with all former presidents of the ANC and former presidents of the Republic.
“This meeting, therefore, follows the meeting President Ramaphosa had with President Mbeki and former President Kgalema Motlanthe, among others.”
However, only a fly on the wall will know for certain what will be discussed between the two men.
“The Sunday Times is just gossiping because how would they know the meeting of two people. What we can confirm is a meeting.”
While no date has been set for this meeting, Kodwa has described it as ‘long overdue’.
