JOHANNESBURG – Former North-West Prime Minister Supra Mahumapelo said he met former president Jacob Zuma in Durban a few months ago, to explain why he had decided to resign as prime minister.
Mahumapelo included members of the African National Congress (ANC) including Secretary General Ace Magashule who attended a meeting with the former president at a hotel in Durban.
He denied that the meeting was a secret plan to overthrow President Cyril Ramaphosa from his position.
Mahumapelo said there was never a secret meeting where he was a part.
"There are no secret meetings at all. There is no plot at all.
"I asked for a meeting with President Zuma to go and explain to him about my three reasons why I decided to leave earlier than the position where he placed me as prime minister on behalf of the African National Congress."
Mahumapelo said he would now adhere to the resolution of the national executive committee which prohibits secret meetings among its leaders.
