Motlatsi says that Zuma's past behaviour shows that Ramaphosa's removal may be imminent. He says information on the removals of Blade Nzimande, Blade Nzimande and Pravin Gordhan were known months in advance, like the information they know now.

We’ve have been told for a long time that the president doesn’t trust his deputy. The president has already told his confidant's that Cyril Ramaphosa is a spy for Western capital.

Dr James Motlatsi, Veteran unionist

While Motlatsi says he has not spoken to Ramaphosa on what to do next, the deputy president is well aware of the information that sparked these statements on his removal.

He adds that Ramaphosa heard his statements on ENCA with the public and phoned him afterwards. He advised the Ramaphosa that it was time to come clean and put his card on the table.

Quite a number of comrades within the leadership of the ANC know this kind of information.

Dr James Motlatsi, Veteran unionist

On whether Zuma will use this information, Motlatsi believes that Zuma's conviction not to have Ramaphosa as his successor may lead his to act.
