COPE's Mosiuoa Lekota says that Cyril Ramaphosa's denial of the allegation that he sold out his comrades to apartheid police actually proves that did in fact betray his colleagues. 

This comes after Ramaphosa rejected the allegations completely.

Lekota says Ramaphosa incriminated himself when he mentioned that police had wanted him to testify against fellow anti-apartheid activists.

Earlier this week, Lekota made the bombshell accusation to Parliament that Ramaphosa had given the Special Branch information about his colleagues in order to receive a lighter prison sentence.

Lekota says he made the revelation when he did because Ramaphosa had invited him on a trip to pay homage to the anti-apartheid struggle. 

Ramaphosa, however, dismissed the allegations.

He expressed disappoint that Lekota and other members of Parliament had not come up with solutions to South Africa's problems, but had instead engaged in "personal attacks" against the president.

Nevertheless, Ramaphosa admitted that police had wanted him to speak out against his comrades. He says they wanted him to turn state witness and give evidence against Lekota and one other activist. Ramaphosa says he turned them down.
