Former South African and ANC President, Jacob Zuma, who announced his decision to vote for the new MK party, has said he is still in the ANC.

Zuma said he is in both organisations but will not vote for the ANC of President Cyril Ramaphosa, who he called a sell out and Apartheid collaborators.

In a full speech that was read on his behalf by his daughter, Duduzile, Zuma said:


I have decided that I can not and will not campaign for the ANC of Ramaphosa.

My conscious will not allow me to lie to the people of South Africa and to pretend that the ANC of Ramaphosa is the the same ANC of Luthuli, and Mandela. It is not the ANC that I joined and went to jail for. In this regard, I fully agree with other former leaders like Cde Thabo Mbeki and others that it would be a betrayal to campaign for the ANC of Ramaphosa.

However, I also believe that it is not enough to withdraw from the ANC campaign, which will lead our people to more misery, poverty, racism, unemployment, deepening loadshedding and a government led by sellouts and a party of collaborators.

It is also our duty to guide our people what to do in order to save our revolution from our enemies and to achieve the society envisioned by the Freedom Charter. I therefore wish to announce that in 2024 I will vote for the MK party.

It has already been registered with the IEC with my knowledge and blessings in response to various pleas expressed to me by some religious leaders, traditional leaders and some leaders in society.

I call on all South Africans to join me in taking the important step and to vore for  the MK party and any other progressive party which seeks total liberation and the return of our lands to its rightful owners. The African people.
