Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has said that, while he accepts that President Jacob Zuma was acquitted of raping Fezekile Kuzwayo – also known as Khwezi – he would believe her allegation.

Ramaphosa was on Wednesday evening interviewed by 702’s Karima Brown, who pressed him on whether he believed Khwezi.

At first, Ramaphosa said he had to go with the outcome of the court case in 2006, in which Zuma was acquitted, but he also had to take heed of what Khwezi said and he had sympathy for her.

After Brown put the question to him pointedly, Ramaphosa said he understands how difficult it is for women to come forward with allegations of sexual violence.

“Yes, I would believe her,” Ramaphosa added.

In October, fellow presidential hopeful Lindiwe Sisulu was asked a similar question by 702’s Eusebius McKaiser.

Sisulu responded: “I believe she believed she was raped.”

Asked what she believes, Sisulu said: “No, I don’t know if I have enough evidence to be able to make a decision on that.

“I know both parties firmly believed what they said.”

Sisulu’s comment caused quite a stir at the time. Khwezi died in October 2016
