Former president Jacob Zuma took to Twitter to lambast a panel which released a report claiming the State Security Agency (SSA) was used as a puppet to fight factional ANC battles.

The Sunday Times reported the panel, which was led by former minister Sydney Mufamadi, released findings which showed that spies loyal to Zuma ran a campaign which aimed to stop Cyril Ramaphosa from becoming president of the ANC.

The report detailed how millions were lost and dirty tricks were used in an attempt to ensure Ramaphosa lost his political campaign.

Zuma on Sunday slammed the panel. "I have never been asked any questions by this committee."

He also appeared to issue a veiled threat, saying that he "hopes people are not opening a can of worms which they might regret".
