IT'S WAR | The Public Is Stunned By Mbeki's Response To Julius Malema
It seems like there is never a quiet moment in South African politics, with politicians constantly attacking one another or being accused of wrongdoing themselves, all of which contribute to a negative image of the rainbow nation both at home and abroad.
This week, activist and former deputy minister of the presidency Julias Malema made headlines by alleging that national security chief Arthur Fraser was conspiring with Thabo Mbeki to oust current president Cyril Ramaphosa from office through a vote of no confidence.
Although it had been speculated that Fraser was working closely with yet another former president, Jacob Zuma, Malema stated that the Economic Freedom fighters president, Thabo Mbeki, was the mastermind behind a slander campaign that has been giving Ramaphosa headaches at work.
Mbeki used the social media platform of his foundation to publicly criticize the claims, saying that they were part of Malema's latest scheme to further rifts inside the African National Congress.
South Africans were surprised by Mbeki's response to the claims, with many claiming he was more level-headed than the EFF president, Julius Malema, who never pulls his punches.
The next presidential elections are coming up, and with the tensions that have been stoked by Julius Malema's words, things do not seem good for the ANC.
