President Cyril Ramaphosa has refuted allegations that he sold out his comrades during the peak of the apartheid era, when they were facing the brutality of the Nationalist government.

Congress of the People leader Mosioua Lekota made the allegations during the debate on the State of the Nation Address on Wednesday.

 

EFF suggestions rejected

President Ramaphosa has rejected the EFF suggestions that a commission of inquiry be established to investigate claims that he sold out his comrades during the peak of the apartheid era, when they were facing the brutality of the Nationalist government.

In his reply to the debate, in the National Assembly, the President refuted the allegations and says such inquiry would be a waste of taxpayers’ money.

“I can testify that I have never ever been a spy. I’ve never worked with the enemy. All I have ever done in my life is my commitment to the people of our country – that’s all.

“You say you want us to establish a judicial commission. I have no interest as President of this country to appoint judicial commissions which are going to waste taxpayers money for nothing; that I will not do, because the ordinary people of our country know that there is no truth in this thing,” Ramaphosa defended.

Earlier, President Ramaphosa has wished the women of South Africa a Happy Valentine’s Day.  Ramaphosa also handed out roses to his wife, who is seated in the Parliamentary gallery, as well as the female Members of Parliament.
