Former President Thabo Mbeki has shot down claims by EFF leader Julius Malema that he and former spy boss Arthur Fraser were planning to get rid of President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Mbeki thinks that Malema's claim came from the "old" apartheid spy network.
According to the former president, the goal is to make the ANC more divided and make it harder for it to work toward renewal, which is something Mbeki is a part of.
"[Former President] Mbeki treats Mr. Malema's rumors with the contempt they deserve," said Siyabulela Gebe, a spokesperson for the Thabo Mbeki Foundation.
"He is sure that it comes from the old apartheid intelligence apparatus and that it is meant to make the ANC more divided and make it harder for the organization to change."
On Wednesday, Malema said something shocking when he said that Fraser was working with Mbeki to get rid of Ramaphosa.
Fraser had filed a police report against Ramaphosa, saying that the current leader of the ANC and president of the country was trying to hide the fact that a crime had been committed on his Phala Phala farm in Limpopo.
The leader of the red berets says that Mbeki wanted Ramaphosa to fail and was planning to come back to lead the ANC.
"ANC rebel forces have never cheered for Fraser, even if the Phala Phala allegations are true." They have never called Fraser a hero, and they have used Phala Phala as a way to hurt the president's campaign. "That's why it was hard to bring it up at the ANC policy conference, because it wasn't their idea," Malema said.
"They are wondering whose plans Fraser is trying to carry out." The answer is that Fraser is with [former] president Mbeki in trying to get president Ramaphosa removed from office. Mbeki says he is still upset that he didn't finish his term as president. "Fraser works with Mbeki, not with the RET forces."
