"I Was Offered $600M, A Mine In Zim To Destroy COPE" Madisha Spills Beans


Congress of the People deputy president, Willie Madisha has revealed that he was approached by some individuals who offered him $600 million and a mine in Zimbabwe if he destroys the party.

Cope deputy president Willie Madisha has also blamed the decline in electoral support to the ANC, which he says might be responsible for rogue elements who were sent into COPE party to destroy it.

Madisha says even though he was approached to destroy COPE in exchange of a mine in Zimbabwe and 600 million dollars, he rejected the money and told the individuals that they could only meet him when he was in his coffin.

"That fellow they were seated there and they said we are ready and we have a mine. We have 600 not Rands, but US dollars. I said no thank you, let's meet when I'm in the coffin," said Madisha.

Besides the drama that is happening within the Congress of the People where members want it's president, Lekota to step down citing that he is now old to lead, Madisha says COPE is still alive and will be part of government one day.

Currently, Congress of the People only have two seats in parliament, and some have warned that if their squabbling doesn't end, they may not be able to have a seat in parliament after the 2024 elections.

The party was allegedly formed by some disgruntled members who had left ANC, even though until now, those members deny the allegations. Mbhazima Shilowa was also once a member of the party, but was expelled.

Social critics are however not convinced by Willie Madisha's utterances, they question who on earth and in their right minds would turn down a $600 millions for COPE, a party that seem like it's on way out of the political arena.
