Sandile Zungu goes to Jacob Zuma in Nkandla for advice, and while many on social media have taken notice and are curious about the motivation behind the visit, such visits are really quite regular in the country.
Jacob Zuma, a prominent businessman, football club owner for AmaZulu, and ANC candidate for chairperson in KwaZulu-Natal, is well-liked for numerous reasons; now that he is older, many people pay him a visit at his home to seek advise on any number of topics.
Even though the businessman recently tied the knot, many in KwaDakwadunuse continue to wonder whether or not he is a polygamist, given that such practices are commonplace there. He flew into town via helicopter to meet with Zuma and fill him in.
He sought advice because he was considering attending the upcoming provincial conference after being nominated to run for it by a number of different branches; it seems likely that he will do so, as he has clearly won the support of the general people there.
Zungu, who has been approved by several branches in KwaZulu-Natal, is vying for the chairpersonship of the ANC in the entire province; he wasn't aiming for a more localized post, and this will undoubtedly give him a tremendous boost in power.
Zungu explained that he was meeting with the leaders of the province as part of his discussions, so he could better prepare for the job he will soon assume.
Some of President Zuma's most ardent fans were devastated by his loss of the presidency, but the fact that it was time for him to step down as president did not make the occasion any less bittersweet.
