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

Vice President of the Congress of the People Willie Madisha has come forward to say that he was offered $600 million and a mine in Zimbabwe if he disbanded the party.

The COPE party's vice president, Willie Madisha, has blamed the ANC for the decline in electoral support by suggesting that the ANC is sending renegade members into the COPE party to undermine it.

A mine in Zimbabwe and $600 million were reportedly offered to Madisha in exchange for destroying COPE, but he declined and declared he would only see the offerer in his coffin.

"He was told, "We're ready, and we have a mine," and they sat down. We have 600 USD, not zAR. Instead, I gently rejected and suggested we meet in the casket "The Madisha gave a response.

While COPE is now facing internal struggle, with members calling for President Lekota to leave over concerns that he is too old to lead, Madisha is adamant that the party is still very much alive and will be a part of government in the future.

Some have warned that the Congress of the People may not win any seats in the 2024 elections if internal strife is not resolved. Currently, the party has only two seats in parliament.

Disgruntled ex-ANC members are said to have created the party, but they have always refuted the claim. Once-party member Mbhazima Shilowa was also expelled and forced to leave.

Social critics, on the other hand, aren't persuaded by Willie Madisha's statements and question who on earth and in their right mind would refuse $600 million in support for COPE, a party that appears to be on the way out of the electoral arena.
