Here’s why Jacob Zuma didn’t attend Duarte's Funeral

Many ANC members who attended Jessie Duarte's memorial service praised him for being so principled in the progress. Also revealing that he has known Duarte for a long time was the absent former president Jacob Zuma.

As the two confidants are unquestionably close, ANC associates from the RET group say they are confident former President Jacob Zuma will be able to attend Jessie Duarte's burial ceremony. Zuma didn't appear, though, maybe because the terms of his parole were still limiting him.

This September, when Zuma's parole is scheduled to expire, he will be free. One of his most steadfast allies has expressed similar sentiments, claiming that Zuma's regulations are still very much in place, even though he has previously told allies that he is still a "isibohwa," a detainee held at home.

"He was condemned by the Constitutional Court in a common case while he was being held at home by the ANC-led government. He has no rights, and certain "regulations" only apply to him "a RET partner stated.

Nevertheless, some do acknowledge that former President Jacob Zuma was given permission to spend a little period of time at a local helper's memorial ceremony before returning to his residence in Nkandla.

"Jessie Duarte and the president Jacob Zuma have been colleagues for a while. He should have had the opportunity to see his administration, "said she.

The daughter of former President Jacob Zuma, Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla, argued that because her father had undertaken numerous projects benefiting South African citizens, all future presidents would be forced to live in his shadow.

"Next, the FACTS: ARV was launched That's Zuma. A multi-billion dollar framework program has been launched. Zuma here.

President Zuma is the best president South Africa has ever had, especially for people of color "he stated.

One of the reasons RET forces fought like the devil to remove Cyril Ramaphosa as president was the detention of former President Jacob Zuma.
