You the idea that the Apartheid government was a group of evil nazi like villians is also false. I am not sure what Ramaphosa did at the time, but during the 80s a lot of talks and compromises were made on both sides.

I don't agree often with you but here I do.

He wastes 4min whining, then breaks Parliament's rules to go on 40 year old gossips?

He can make a column in a newspaper for this. Don't use Parliament time to discuss a personal issue.
Is this the first time you see videos from our parliament? The whole place is like a kindergarten.

A decade later and parliament is still one big circus show. Truth is, parliament stopped being funny many years ago... now its just pathetic.

Did anyone notice that Juju was just gonna give up EFF time to hear rumours? Some poor EFF apparatchik prepared a speech but his leader was ready to throw him under the bus.

Talk about betraying your comrades.

I know, but thought useful to remind that this is not the place to distribute dubious pamphlets.

Health minister Aaron Motsoaledi has defended President Cyril Ramaphosa against claims that he "sold out" anti-apartheid student activists in the 1970s.
This was after Cope leader Mosioua Lekota made the startling allegation in parliament during the Sona debate on Wednesday.
Lekota claimed that Ramaphosa "condemned" him and other student activists to the apartheid special branch in 1974, when Ramaphosa told the apartheid regime in a letter that they had "put communist ideas in his head".
But Motsoaledi revealed that they had first asked Lekota about these allegations as far back as 1983, when they were students at the then University of Natal.

Motsoaledi said there were rumours at the time that anti-apartheid activists who had been arrested for the "Viva Frelimo" rally - among them Lekota and Ramaphosa - had been sold out to apartheid's special branch.

"On June 16 1983, that evening, we called you [Lekota]. We sat together with you and we called senior student activists and we said, 'Please clarify us on this matter of comrades who sold out during the Frelimo rally and clear or confirm the name, specifically of Ben Langa.'

"We asked you and the answer you gave us was that there's no such thing. These are smear campaigns by the boers who want to divide us - that's what you told us. At that time there was no reason for you whatsoever to protect one Cyril Ramaphosa. There was no reason you could have told us about the way he sold out.

"Now, if the boers told you at that time that Ramaphosa sent them a letter and sold out, why didn't you disclose [this] to us at the time?" Motsoaledi asked as Lekota sat stony-faced at his parliamentary bench.

"In 1991, when this President Cyril Ramaphosa was standing as the secretary-general of the ANC, you are one of the people who came to mobilise us to vote for him. Why did you want the ANC to vote for a sellout? The young people led by Peter Mokaba wanted Alfred Nzo.

"We were of the UDF era and we were listening to you because you were our very powerful publicity secretary. You gave us direction that we must vote for Ramaphosa. Why the sellout who sold you [out] so much? You wanted him to be a leader of a liberation movement. Perhaps you will give us answers, I don't know," said Motsoaledi.

The answer to this could be because Terror himself was a sellout and he wanted to capture the ANC together with Ramaphosa.

Aaron Motsoaledi can remember what happened in 1983 and 1991 but he doesn't know how much NHI will cost. Buffoon.

This is the ANC equivalent of when your elderly family members sit down and argue about who stole what from great grand-dad's will in 1962.

Same with Terror, he can remember all those things yet he doesn't know how to save COPE. ANC incompetence at it's finest.

I'm okay with Terror going senile. He's not managing a billion rand health project that has direct consequences on my life! Aaron is a different story.

Zuma never snitched on his boys.

Actually I'd be surprised if he never did. He would very much have been a weak link in the exiled militia.
