'ANC top 6 meeting audio leak raises questions about trust among party leaders'
A short audio clip from the recent closed meeting between the ANC’s top six and former president Jacob Zuma was leaked on social media on Friday.
In the recording, ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa is heard trying to convince his predecessor, Zuma, that he is not plotting against him.
Mathekga says the leaked recording suggests that there has been an erosion of trust among the party's top leadership.
He claims the clip paints Ramaphosa as someone who is indebted to Zuma.
