JOHANNESBURG – Secretary-General of the South African Communist Party (SACP) Blade Nzimande called on the African National Congress (ANC) to urgently investigate and identify people who are making plans to expel President Cyril Ramaphosa and the issue before the elections of 2019.
Nzimande delivered the message of support from the communist party to the 13th National Congress of the South African trade unions (Cosatu) on Tuesday.
Nzimande says that the plot discussed by some ANC leaders in dark corners is aimed not only at Ramaphosa, but also at the poor.

He says that the leaders involved in the conspiracy are counter-revolutionaries and determined to fight back.
"They can not find space in our movement."
Meanwhile, the ANC released a statement on reports on the body language of Secretary-General Ace Magashule and his deputy, Jessie Duarte, on Tuesday evening when Ramaphosa spoke about those who planned to divide the party at the national conference.
The party says that the reports, which they do not identify, try to reinforce that the ANC is divided.
