Former President Jacob Zuma who has been accused of creating parallel structures within the intelligence service to serve his personal and factional ANC party political interests, has hit back, labeling those behind the report as Apartheid spies.
Zuma was responding to the findings of a  review panel report on the State Security Agency (SSA), which revealed that not only was the SSA repurposed to serve Zuma’s interests, but was created irregularly in terms of the Constitution, which requires intelligence structures to be set up through legislative changes and not presidential proclamations.
The panel, headed by  former safety and security minister Sydney Mufamadi, was established by President Cyril Ramaphosa in June last year and finalised its report to the president in December. Ramaphosa released a redacted version of the report on Saturday.
In a tweet, Zuma said he had never  been asked any questions by this committee. While not mentioning Ramaphosa by name, Zuma said he had never written letters to apartheid’s special branch police. Zuma was referring to Cope leader Mosiuoa Lekota shocking claims in Parliament recently in which he accused Ramaphosa of selling him and other student leaders out to the apartheid special branch when they were activists in the 1970s.”
I have never been asked any questions by this committee. This committee has 2 well known Apartheid spies. I’ve never sold out nor written letters to the SB. I feel nothing when Apartheid spies call me corrupt. I hope people are not opening a can of worms which they might regret,” tweeted Zuma
