Cape Town - The ANC has denied that it has agreed to a debate between President Cyril Ramaphosa and DA leader Mmusi Maimane later this month.
This followed Maimane’s statement on Tuesday that Ramaphosa has agreed to a public debate on SABC on April 28.
But the ANC said on Wednesday there was no such debate and it would never be cajoled into such a debate.
“The ANC refuses to be cajoled into a debate that never was between the ANC President, Comrade Cyril Ramaphosa with the DA leader, Mmusi Maimane,” said the ANC in a statement.
“We strongly dispute what is currently being touted by the SABC, that the organisation has confirmed or is even aware of a debate between its statesman and the DA’s Mmusi Maimane,” stated the ANC.
