EXCLUSIVE: Shaka Sisulu speaks out on the "war room" election mandate

26 January, 11:55 AM

Johannesburg - ANC activist Shaka Sisulu met with News24 on Wednesday evening following a shoot for his show, TrendingSA, in Johannesburg to respond to allegations contained in an explosive affidavit placing him at the centre of a covert operation aimed at tarnishing the images of opposition parties.

"This was an initiative that came out of our own knowledge of what is required [and] what we felt was an extremely hostile media environment against the ANC, and looked at ways that it can be dealt with," he told News24.

Sisulu admitted that the informal grouping raised funds for the project from sponsors but disputes the R50 million figure touted as a "figment of someone's imagination." He said the grouping had its own working budget which didn't even go into double digit figures, and that they didn't manage to raise much money.

Watch as Sisulu explains.
