The war has started and it is quite clear now that it is Sisulu versus Ramaphosa. In just eleven months before the ANC National General council ( NGC) which will be electing the party leadership top 6. There have been reports that the Minister of Tourism, Lindiwe Sisulu is gunning for the Presidency position to challenge Cyril Ramaphosa.
Already, the battle between the two has started. Sisulu has been on the news of late, after her opinion piece article was published where she slammed the judiciary, particularly the black judges who have betrayed black people for the sake of pleasing white masters.
The Minister had said that today, in the high echelons of our judicial system are those mentally colonised Africans, who have settled with the worldview and mindset of those who have dispossessed their ancestors.
The presidency quoted her further from the part where the Minister said that some members of the judicial are only happy to "lick the spittle of those who falsely claim superiority.
Sisulu said that the lack of confidence that permeates their rulings against their own speaks very loudly, while others, secure in their agenda, clap behind closed doors.
Yesterday evening, the Minister in the Presidency, Mondli Gungubele released a statement saying that Sisulu had met with Cyril and apologized for her statement.
Two hours later, the Presidency turned into a joke when Sisulu issued her counter statement denying that she has apologized for the statement and retracted her words. The Minister stated that it is LIES, she never apologized and frankly, she stands on her statement.
Sisulu said that while they had a meeting with Cyril on Wednesday around 21:00 at his house, but she did not agree to withdraw her statement.
In her brief statement she released she stated that she has been informed of a media alert by the presidency that claims she has retracted her original expression.
Instead,Sisulu said Cyril shared his challenge with one aspect of the article on the judges.
Sisulu said that Ramaphosa proposed an intermediary that would focus on one line about the judges to resolve that.
She reiterated that under no circumstances did she commit to any retraction or apology since she stands by what she penned.
