Ramaphosa, the founding general secretary of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and scourge of mining bosses, anointed by Mandela as the ANC's lead negotiator during the transition and the midwife of the final Constitution, found it necessary to tell Mosioua Lekota and Julius Malema that he was not "a sell-out".
In his response to the SONA debate, President Cyril Ramaphosa sought to deal with COPE leader, Terror Lekota and EFF leader, Julius Malema first before getting to crux of the occasion.
EFF leader Julius Malema wrote to Ramaphosa asking him to "allow the chief justice to appoint a judicial commission of inquiry to investigate these allegations in order to clear the matter once and for all".
When Modise asked him to start wrapping up, EFF leader Julius Malema stood up and asked if eight of the minutes allocated to the EFF to speak in the House could be transferred to Lekota.
Mosiuoa Lekota said at the National Assembly on Wednesday that Cyril Ramaphosa condemned them by writing to the Special Branch, and added the branch rewarded Ramaphosa “as they always rewarded their victims and sent you home.” He received praise from the Economic Freedom Fighters, and Julius Malema thanked Lekota for his contribution.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema made a similar challenge to President Ramaphosa.
EFF leader Julius Malema took to Parliament's microphone on Tuesday afternoon to present his arguments on President Cyril Ramaphosa's state of the nation address.
