Associate editor at Tiso BlackStar, Ranjeni Munusamy says an attempt by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa to interdict the Sunday Independent from publishing article over his apparent infidelity has drawn more attention to the scandal.
Ramaphosa was unsuccessful on Saturday night in his attempt to stop the newspaper from publishing an article, which claimed he had affairs with eight women.
The paper reports that it is in possession of three email addresses in which Ramaphosa used, all under pseudonyms, to communicate with the women and was supporting them financially.
Munusamy says Ramaphosa's court action has drawn more attention to the fact that something untoward was going on.
He hasn't clarified whether those emails are fabricated or just merely altered, and whether the allegations contained in them are true. He is basically says he is objecting to his privacy being impeded.— Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Blackstar
As a presidential candidate and deputy president of South Africa, he doesn't have the same kind of right to privacy that the rest of us enjoy as ordinary citizens.— Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Blackstar
The fact that he is running a high profile presidential campaign, means that his conduct is open to scrutiny and interrogation.— Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Blackstar
She says he should have responded to the allegations and relay his version to counter what she says, is clearly a dirty tricks campaign against him.
