Former President Jacob Zuma has reacted to the furore around African National Congress (ANC) member Derek Hanekom, saying that he was not surprised by the revelations.
Earlier this week, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema told supporters that his party worked with Hanekom and SACP leader Solly Mapaila to plan Zuma’s ousting, claiming that Hanekom gave the party a list of ANC MP’s who would vote in support of a motion of no confidence.
He said it was the EFF’s general secretary Godrich Gardee who gave him his own estimate of how many ANC members would support a motion of no confidence in the former president.
But on Wednesday night, he confessed to meeting with the party.
Zuma took to Twitter on Thursday morning, saying that he was not surprised by the revelations and that it was part of the plan against him that he mentioned during his appearance at the Zondo Commission.
He added that Hanekom was a “known enemy agent.”
