According to BLF, President Ramaphosa's refusal to set up a commission to investigate their allegations of spying against the Economic Freedom Fighters and the president himself is proof of his conflict of interest.

Now, BLF is set to approach the High Court for a Judicial Commission of Inquiry into their claims, as reported on by The Citizen.

In an open letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa, Andile Mngxitama, leader of the BLF party, has demanded a commission of inquiry into claims that Ramaphosa sold out during apartheid and rumours that the EFF are linked to British intelligence agency MI6.

However, as reported by Briefly.co.za, Ramaphosa had denied the allegations in Parliament, adding that such an inquiry would be a waste.

The president had advised people not to believe the rumours, claiming he had heard similar sentiments about the EFF being an 'MI6 project'.

According to BLF, this lack of action is proof that the president is not being objective.

President Ramaphosa’s denial of our request for JCOI proves his conflict of interest and lack of objectivity in this matter.
Now the path open to us is to take the matter to the High Court for the necessary relief including that the Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng makes the relevant appointments for the institution of the JCOI.
