Masina’s sentiments came while he was raising concerns over the ANC’s presidential campaigns conducted in 2017, and how people involved were able to raise over R1 billion for one man, instead of doing so for the party.
At the time, Ramaphosa was vying for the party’s top post alongside Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma.
Masina alleged the money raised was used to overthrow the ANC in the name of the new dawn, a reference to Ramaphosa’s theme as president.
“This Bejani Chauke went and laterally (sic) established a pseudo organisation, raised over R1bn to overthrow the established ANC in the name of the new dawn. You think the difference of R100m miscalculation makes any difference. As we speak at HQ, people not paid while this occurs (sic),” Masina tweeted in what is thought to have been a response to journalist Ferial Haffajee.
