ZUMA IS GUILTY OF RAPE : RAMAPHOSA

A leading contender to replace President Jacob Zuma as head of South Africa's governing ANC has said he believes the woman who accused Mr Zuma of rape over a decade ago was telling the truth.

Mr Zuma's deputy, Cyril Ramaphosa, told a local radio station: "Yes, I would believe her."

In 2006 Mr Zuma was found not guilty of raping Fezekile Kuzwayo - the daughter of an old family friend.

He said she had agreed to have sex. Mr Ramaphosa is competing against Mr Zuma's ex-wife, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, to become the leader of the ANC in a contest starting next Saturday.


But Zuma’s Office said in a statement :"The Presidency has noted the media reports attributed to the Deputy President of the Republic who is quoted as having stated that he believed the version presented by Khwezi in the criminal proceedings between State v JG Zuma when he was interviewed in one of the radio stations.The rape allegations against President Zuma were properly considered by a Judge of the High Court. Having evaluated the totality of the evidence, the court acquitted the President of the rape charges. The Presidency affirms the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary and the primacy of the courts as the final arbiters in disputes in society."
