- The Head of the SA Council of Messianic Churches in Christ (SACMCC) has come forward with information that suggests that former South African President, Jacob Zuma, had a hand in the creation of the African Transformation Movement (ATM)
- Evidence shows that Zuma intended to use the formation of ATM in an attempt to oust current SA President, Cyril Ramaphosa
- The SACMCC head also provided evidence to suggest that Zuma targeted VBS Bank funds in order to create a party to challenge Ramaphosa’s position
The Head of the SA Council of Messianic Churches in Christ (SACMCC), Buyisile Ngqulwana, has provided information which could tie former South African President, Jacob Zuma, to the formation of the African Transformation Movement (ATM).
Zuma allegedly played a part in forming ATM in an attempt to sabotage current SA President, Cyril Ramaphosa’s leadership.
This information has been revealed by the Sunday Times, who claim that they are in possession of several affidavits and letters that implicate Zuma in the ATM creation.
The publication reported that evidence suggests that church officials met up at Luthuli House and Nkandla in order to talk about potential ways to create a party that could “provide an alternative” to Ramaphosa’s ANC.
This claim seems to bolster rumours that Zuma and ANC Secretary General, Ace Magashule, have continuously been attempting to push out Ramaphosa.
Briefly.co.za learned that, allegedly, Magashule had a hand in the creation of the name ‘ATM’, as well as a role in the party’s planning and certain political activities.
Ngqulwana has also outlined Zuma’s connection to VBS Bank, saying that the ex-SA President had his eyes on the bank in order to, with the help of SACMCC, fund a new party that could oust Ramaphosa.
