- An anonymous former spy has made several bombshell allegations in a sworn statement
- These include spying on several high-profile individuals and being involved in plots to destabilise the ANC
- These plots involved plans to stage fake violent attacks on the former premiers of the North West and Free State
A former spy has made allegations about several shady operations conducted by South African security agencies.
These include Russian interference, spying on certain people, and plans to engage in attacks on the ANC.
The spy's identity is currently being kept secret, but the comments were made in a sworn affidavit.
Perhaps the most shocking of the spy's claims involved plots to destabilise the ANC. These plans involved staging faking bomb attacks on the former premiers of the North West province and the Free State.
These attacks would then be blamed on Cyril Ramaphosa's supporters in order to fuel factionalism within the ANC, according to The Citizen.
Allegedly, corpses from mortuaries would be planted on the scenes to create the impression that people had been killed in the attacks.
Furthermore, the unidentified person singled out several individuals by name that the he said were being monitored by security agencies. These included Thuli Madonsela, Tito Mboweni, Moeletsi Mbeki, Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng and anti-corruption activist, Magda Wierzycka.
Wierzycka confirmed that she believed she was indeed being monitored and claimed that her communications were being tapped and monitored. However, she said the spying had decreased since Cyril Ramaphosa took office.
