RAMAPHOSA :I CHEATED | Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has confessed that he had
an extra marital affair with a doctor.
In an interview with the Sunday Times yesterday‚ Ramaphosa said the affair‚ with a Limpopo doctor had ended eight years ago.“I had a relationship with only one person and it ended. I dealt with it with my wife. We now have a professional relationship.” The doctor was not available for comment late yesterday.
“I am not a blesser. My wife and I support 54 young people every month- 30 females and 24 males. We are transforming people’s lives. His wife, Motsepe, said she was hurt by the claims.
“It is very sad what is happening. It’s disappointing that people have to go to such lengths to discredit a person. I am very, very upset about it. We have been together for a very long time and are happily married. I support and respect him and love him.”
Ramaphosa spoke after his attempt to block the Sunday Independent article which claimed he had several affairs failed at the High Court. The judge ruled that he had been given enough time to respond.
