Mashele accused Ramaphosa of not understanding his own party and part of its history, which has seen it approach the UN, asking for support throughout the suppression of apartheid.
“It got to a point where apartheid was declared by the UN as a crime against humanity, thanks to the hard work of the ANC leaders of the time. This idea, that countries must be neutral, has never been part of the ANC. ANC as an organisation has always taken sides. That today Rampahosa is telling us that South Africa must be neutral, it actually tells us that he doesn’t understand the history of his organisation. He also does not understand the history of our country.”
