Just a few weeks ago, former president Jacob Zuma did the most unexpected. Since there seems to be bad blood between him and the current ANC leadership, many people anticipated that he would not campaign for the ANC. They thought he would motivate his followers not to vote for it, as they all claim that Ramaphosa has something to do with his "unfair arrest", as they call it. Zuma’s followers believe that the ANC betrayed Jacob Zuma by sending him to prison. However, it seems as if the organization means way more to him than we thought. After everything they put him through, he still argued with his followers to vote for the ANC. A few weeks ago, the Zuma foundation released a video of Zuma telling people that they shouldn’t stop voting for the ANC because of what happened to him. Following all that, his followers were very enraged.
On Thursday, a prayer meeting was held where the former president addressed a few of the things he had to deal with, especially with the law and the justice system. Even though he might not be serving his full 15-month sentence for being found guilty of being in contempt of court in prison, he is still serving it under strict conditions at home.
He addressed many of his supporters at the prayer meeting and this is what he said:
"Zondo made it obvious that he wanted me imprisoned for two years without charge as a reminder to the public about his ostensibly unrestricted powers. I have requested that this matter [of the punishment] be adjudicated by an external jurisdiction. "We want to live in a society that is controlled by the law," he stated.
Following all of that, Jacob Zuma's daughter, Duduzile Zuma, posted a tweet that left many talking. She claims the current leadership is haunting her father. This is what she said:
"Our Last Remaining True Leader Of The ANC." When he won overwhelmingly in PLK, other leaders refused to campaign. JZ is being pursued by current leadership, but he is prioritizing ANC, his only home.He is the ANC's Walking Book of Knowledge.A Disciplined Cadre."
This is how some people reacted to her post:
