This happened at an ANC NEC meeting that was supposed to be about the quarantine votes at the Ekurhuleni regional conference, which was held earlier this month.
Tony Yengeni and Zweli Mkhize are said to have said that the issue of quarantine votes in Ekurhuleni should be handled by ANC Gauteng province because the party had more important things to talk about, like Ramaphosa's role in money laundering and the state capture commission report.
Even though other ANC leaders agreed with Zweli Mkhize and Tony Yengeni, it is thought that ANC national chairperson Gwede Mantashe stopped anyone from talking about the Phala Phala scandal at the meeting.
It is said that both Gwede Mantshe and Paul Mashatile, who is the treasurer general, stood up for Cyril Ramaphosa.
Mantashe is said to have told the meeting that the top six were working on a report that would be sent to the NEC. But people who back President Cyril Ramaphosa say that what Zweli Mkhize and Tony Yengeni did was an attempt to make Ramaphosa look bad about the Phala Phala scandal.
Critics say that Gwede Mantashe is only defending Cyril Ramaphosa because he knows that he has his own criminal problems to deal with and is one of the ANC heavyweights that Raymond Zondo said should be looked into further.
On the other hand, Paul Mashatile wants to be vice president and is said to be helping Cyril Ramaphosa stay in the right ANC faction by defending him.
But the ANC NEC meeting showed that the center is not stable and that even if Cyril Ramaphosa wins a second term, he will have to deal with a lot of problems.
