The Presidency dismisses rumours about President Jacob Zuma plotting to chop-out Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa from his cabinet.

“The allegations reported in the media that President Jacob Zuma wishes to fire Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and replace him with Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma are preposterous and outrageous.” said the Presidency.

“The allegations are completely baseless.

“The allegations of ethnic mobilisation by the President are equally without foundation.”
