Deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa says he believes Fezekile Ntsukela Kuzwayo, aka Khwezi, was raped by President Jacob Zuma.

Ramaphosa was speaking at the 702 Town Hall on Thursday night when he was asked by Karima Brown whether he believes Khwezi was raped, to which he responded: “Yes, I would believe that.”

The ANC presidential hopeful also added that while the outcome of the court case led to the acquittal of Zuma, he also has to heed to evidence Khwezi presented in court.

Social media users didn’t take kindly to the deputy president’s “sudden revelation”, and accused him of using Khwezi’s memory to win the presidential campaign. Celebrities such as Anele Mdoda were also outraged and didn’t shy away from voicing their opinions.

Here are some the reactions to Ramaphosa’s comment:

Abo Cyril admit how rotten the status quo is, even going as far as saying he “believes” Khwezi which means he believes his boss is a rapist, but was more than happy to serve in this leadership. These are the “good guys” apparently.
