Mabe has dismissed Zikalala's statements.

He says people should allow space for fruitful engagement to take place.

We have already conveyed a firm message to the extent that the president of the ANC and President of the Republic have had constructive and fruitful engagements, and that the National Executive Committee will be meeting next week. The decision and resolve it takes in that meeting will be conveyed to the general public.
