‘Dali Mpofu seriously destroyed Ramaphosa’s court application’: Mzwanele Manyi

Jacob Zuma Foundation spokesperson Mzwanele Manyi believes Jacob Zuma’s legal counsel has demolished Cyril Ramaphosa’s arguments in court and says he is abusing presidency resources.
The former president filed a case against the president arguing that Ramaphosa is an “accessory after the fact” in relation to charges Zuma is pursuing against prosecutor Billy Downer and journalist Karyn Maughan.
Ramaphosa wants the court to set aside the prosecution as unconstitutional and unlawful. He has asked for an interdict to prevent any “further steps” in pursuing the prosecution and to excuse his appearance in the criminal court on January 19, as demanded in Zuma’s summons.
The president argues that Zuma brought the case with the ulterior purpose of ruining his chance of being re-elected president of the ANC.
Former ANC member Carl Niehaus says he wants the president removed immediately.The interdict application judgment was reserved for Monday.
