A digital campaign operating in support of Ramaphosa under the banner “CR17 Siyavuma” - although he has denied authorising it - has also decried the "dirty tricks" being utilised against their presidential contender.
"The CR17 campaign will not allow an expanding ‘dirty tricks’ campaign to derail its efforts.
"The latest part of this campaign was revealed by Julius Malema on Capricorn FM . . . where he spoke about rumours that Cyril Ramaphosa had abused his former wife. Malema also implied that certain ANC leaders may be behind these rumours.
". . . With the high levels of domestic violence in South Africa‚ it is extremely unfortunate that baseless rumours of this nature are used for political gain.
". . . Consistent with its objectives‚ the CR17 campaign supports the thorough investigation by appropriate authorities of any and all credible allegations of criminal activity‚ especially violence against women and allegations of misappropriation of public funds."
