The ANC is in the dark about what Police Minister Bheki Cele and former president Jacob Zuma discussed during their meeting earlier this week.
The DA has also asked Bheki Cele in what capacity did he visit the former president, as Police Minister or NEC member.
Cele's meeting with Zuma lasted three hours and the secrecy behind what was discussed has raised eyebrows according to News24.
ANC Secretary-General and staunch Zuma supporter, Ace Magashule wants to know what was discussed and the fact that he has been left out of the loop has surprised some.
Magashule added that his position as Police Minister and ANC leader could not be separated.
Zuma has defied calls to appear before the Zondo Commission of Inquiry despite facing posibble jail time for refusing to comply with the Constitutional Court order to appear before the Commission.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Police Minister Bheki Cele was tight-lipped about his meeting with Jacob Zuma and refused to divulge any details. However, Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla posted a tweet that revealed details of Cele's visit with her dad.
She said that there was no tea at this party, just good conversation and laughs between comrades. She did reveal that if an arrest warrant was issued against her dad, Cele would be the one to fetch him.
"No #NkandlaTea was served but great conversations and laughs were shared amongst Comrades, one of them being, should an arrest warrant be issued, it is the Minster that would come and fetch @PresJGZuma ."
In other new, the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation has slammed former president Jacob Zuma for his defiance of the Zondo commission and Constitutional Court.
In a statement, the executive director of the foundation, Neeshan Balton, said that Zuma’s recent behaviour shows that the politician is not interested in law and order.
Balton went on to say that the former president should be given no preferential treatment.
Police Minister Bheki Cele met with Jacob Zuma on Thursday. The meeting, which lasted 3 hours, came at a time of rising tensions between Zuma and Raymond Zondo.
