African Transformation Movement (ATM) leader Vuyo Zungula who attended the 9th anniversary celebrations of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) called on political parties to unite in their bid to oust President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Zungula says the ATM believes the president should not hold the post in the wake of the Phala Phala scandal.
Earlier this year, former state security chief Arthur Fraser filed a criminal complaint against Ramaphosa after he allegedly covered up the theft of millions of US dollars from his Limpopo game farm in 2020.
Zungula addressed EFF supporters in Mangaung, saying the most important thing to do immediately is to unite as the country has no president.
“South Africa has no president; he has an imposter, which is why we must draw up an action program to eliminate this impostor from the buildings of the Union. South Africa deserves a president who will lead, not an impostor, a servant of the CIA. We know that this person was caught with tons of US dollars under his mattress and the FBI did not investigate it,” Zungu adds.
Ramaphosa appeared before the ANC’s Integrity Commission earlier this week on the matter.
Root out corruption
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) say they will not hesitate to root out corruption in all spheres of government.
The party reiterated that economic freedom is the way forward to reduce poverty.

EFF supporters say the problem of high unemployment and poor service delivery has crippled the country.
Business owners also took advantage of the celebration to share their feelings and concerns.
“We are from Odendaalsrus in the Free State, our challenge is the poor infrastructure in our area. We also have a lot of mines in the area, but the youth unemployment rate is still high. We want our leader to make sure he helps vote against the ruling party. So in order for me to survive, I decided to sell food. Whenever there are gatherings I go there, even in Durban we go and sell food. At the moment there are shelters inside where he was supposed to allow us to go and sell. I think we also deserve a space inside to sell our stuff,” says the business owner.
