JACOB ZUMA MISTAKELY CALLS SOUTH AFRICANS TO VOTE FOR ANC

While addressing the crowd during the MK branch launch in Nkandla earlier this year, Jacob Zuma had a slip of the tongue and encouraged the audience to vote for his former party, the ANC.

Zuma was the President of the Republic of South Africa from 9 May 2009 until 14 February 2018, the SA gov website reported. He was said to have joined the ANC in 1958. Following the banning of the ANC in 1960, in 1962, Zuma is said to have become an active member of MK.

According to TimesLIVE, the 81-year-old former ANC President plans to change the constitution if his MK party wins the upcoming elections.

“If you are black and do not vote with fellow blacks, you will die without getting sick. We are not playing this time around. If it was up to me, I would say every black person must pass before me to see which party they voted for and stop this thing of a secret vote.

“Why would you hide when you vote for something you love? When we govern, we will change voting laws and there will be no secret vote system,” Zuma was quoted as saying at a party rally over the past weekend.

Earlier this year, President Cyril Ramaphosa in accordance with section 49(2) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, read with section 17 of the Electoral Act of 1998, announced the date for the 2024 General National and Provincial elections.

He further encouraged South Africans to exercise their right to vote on 29 May.

“Beyond the fulfilment of our constitutional obligation, these upcoming elections are also a celebration of our democratic journey and a determination of the future that we all desire. I call on all South Africans to exercise their democratic right to vote”, the SA gov website quoted Ramaphosa as saying.
