South Africa’s graft-accused former president Jacob Zuma on Saturday accused his successor, Cyril Ramaphosa, of corruption and treason following a cash heist scandal at the latter’s farm.
The divisive politician’s accusations came just months before the ruling ANC party’s year-end crunch conference where Ramaphosa is expected to seek a second term.
“Your president is corrupt. Your president has committed treason,” Zuma told a news conference in Johannesburg — his first since he ended his 15-month jail term earlier this month for contempt of court.
He was reacting to allegations earlier this year that Ramaphosa concealed a multi-million-dollar cash heist at his luxury farmhouse.
