'Agent', 'Charlatan' - Top ANC Member Under Fire in South Africa

African National Congress Secretary-General Ace Magashule has issued a scathing late-night statement, calling party national executive committee member Derek Hanekom a charlatan. The statement was issued after Hanekom confirmed that he met with leaders of the Economic Freedom Fighters to plan former President Jacob Zuma's ousting. Zuma described Hanekom as a "known enemy agent" in a subsequent tweet.
