ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa has attacked his predecessor Jacob Zuma’s uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) party, challenging it to “come forward”.

“They formed a party with a name that started with M, what-what. They thought we were going to be afraid. We are not afraid. Asinalo uvalo! (We are not afraid of anything). Let the war come, us!” we are prepared. We will win the next elections,” he stated.

The president addressed dozens of supporters at a mini rally at the Bokamosa sports ground in the northwest on Tuesday, eight days before the election.
