Maphatsoe preparing for court battle vs Kasrils
Ronnie Kasrils is suing Kebby Maphatsoe for defamation.
Last year Maphatsoe allegedly accused Kasrils of instructing a woman to lay rape charges against President Jacob Zuma in 2005.
Kasrils wants a R1 million payout from Maphatsoe.
Maphatsoe says Kasrils has realised he has lost popularity among voters and is now doing anything to get media attention.
"That is why he has joined the United Front, because he still wants to come back, so he wants to use me to make him popular. We are not going to make him popular, we are going to defend the case."
Kasrils has refused to comment on the case.
Maphatsoe is now consulting his lawyers and is preparing for battle in court soon.
