ANC Coordinator in KwaZulu-Natal, Sihle Zikalala, has defended former President Jacob Zuma against rumours that suggest that he might be joining a new political party. Zuma has distanced himself from the party.
According to Zikalala, the former president is a loyal, tried and tested cadre of the organisation who will never betray the ANC.
“Former President Zuma has made himself clear on the matter. He said he is not part of it. He even said those who think that there would be such a thing are in fact not thinking carefully. From our point, we don’t doubt his loyally in the ANC. He is loyal and remains the member of the ANC and has accepted the decisions taken by the ANC and for him he remains in support of the organisation.”
Last week, Zuma denied claims that he is considering leaving the ANC. He was reacting to reports that a group called Azibuyele Emasisweni wants him to lead a new political party. Zuma was speaking at Inkandla during a prayer service to welcome him back home.
