Former president, Jacob Zuma, has responded to claims of misappropriation of State Security Agency assets. Zuma claims he has never been interviewed by the panel investigating the allegations, which he said were leveled against him by 'apartheid spies', concluding that they 'mean little' to him.
Ex-president Jacob Zuma says that he was never interviewed by the panel investigating the situation at the State Security Agency.
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that, instated by President Cyril Ramaphosa in 2018, the panel has now revealed that aspects of the SSA had been appropriated and used to internally influence the ANC.
Jacob Zuma has since taken to social media to respond to the allegations after the panel's report was released to the public.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday evening, Zuma came to his own defence, claiming that:
"I have never been asked any questions by this committee. This committee has 2 well known Apartheid spies. I’ve never sold out nor written letters to the SB. I feel nothing when Apartheid spies call me corrupt. I hope people are not opening a can of worms which they might regret."
