EFF leader Julius Malema has challenged President Cyril Ramaphosa to tell the truth over claims he offered both Malema and his deputy Floyd Shivambu ministerial posts when he came into power as state president in 2018.

Malema, speaking on PowerFM last week, claimed Ramaphosa made the offer while meeting with the two, who rejected the offer saying he should be given a chance to do his own thing. "I know Cyril for who he is, he is a negotiator, he was trying to take chances for the sake of peace perhaps in Parliament, but also for the liquidation of the EFF because I've seen how they liquidated Azapo, I was there.
