JOHANNESBURG - African Transformation Movement President Vuyolwethu Zungula is rubbishing claims that Ace Magashule and Jacob Zuma helped start the party.
He says the allegations are not supported by evidence and views them as a ploy to stigmatise the ATM as a Zuma party.
"There is no evidence whatsoever, that's one. Secondly, this affidavit drawn by Buyisile Ngqulwana, he withdrew the court application which was going to examine the affidavit."
"A lot of people assume that once a person writes an affidavit, whatever is contained there is actually the truth. Now the fact that he withdrew his own application on the 11th hour clearly shows that there is something about the affidavit that he wrote", said Ngqulwana.
Ngqulwana, head of the SA Council of Messianic Churches, filed an affidavit in May in support of an urgent electoral court application challenging the registration of the party.
