Mpumalanga businessman and conservationist, Frederick Coenraad Daniel, says he has been forced to obtain an interim protection order against African National Congress (ANC) Deputy President and Mpumalanga Premier David Mabuza.
Daniel is the owner of the Cradle of Life Reserve in Badplaas.
He says the trouble started when he and other businessmen blew the whistle on a number of corruption scandals in the province.
"My life has been threatened and my business has been threatened. Government departments and institutions have been incited to mobilise against me to close my businesses."
Daniel says he want to stop Mabuza from interfering with the delivering of public services and the denial of access to departments.
"My life has been threatened directly by Mr. Mabuza and indirectly. The man hates me with a passion.”
Daniel says he was told by the local members of the ANC that his life is in danger and has been put on a hit list.
Listen to the full interview below:
Mabuza's spokesperson Zibonele Mncwango has labelled the allegations by Daniel as malicious and baseless.
Mncwango confirmed that Mabuza was served with the interim protection order.
"We are disputing the wild allegation that the premier is behind the campaign to drive Frederick Daniel out of business or of his land.”
Mncwango says Mabuza will challenge the court interdict and will not comment any further.
