Cele: Plot against Ramaphosa meant to destabilise SA
In an explosive statement, ANC NEC member Bheki Cele claims to have seen a message which outlines plans to remove Cyril Ramaphosa but did not mention who could possibly replace him.
DURBAN - African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee member Bheki Cele says that he has been told of plans to remove deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa in order to destabilise the country and cause enough chaos for the December elective conference not to go ahead.
Cele's comments come amid mounting speculation that another Cabinet shake up is imminent after it was announced that presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is heading back to Parliament.
The former police commissioner was speaking at the KwaZulu-Natal provincial shop stewards council meeting in Durban on Sunday where he was joined by Cosatu’s Sdumo Dlamini and SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande.
In an explosive statement, Cele claims to have seen a message which outlines plans to remove Ramaphosa but did not mention who could possibly replace him.
Cele then went on to say that the aim is to plunge South Africa into crisis in order for the elective conference to no longer go ahead this December but only in 2018.
Even more shocking to the audience were revelations that there could also be an escalation of the current political assassinations that have predominantly been taking place in KZN.
The former police commissioner says that he hopes the contents of the message are not true because the so-called plan is shocking even more so because it signals that there is a group of people who are currently designing the chaos in South Africa.
He didn't give details on who may have sent the message or more details on the alleged plot.
