In a twist of events the ANC Deputy President David Mabuza had to leave without a community engagement in Osizweni in Newcastle. Some ANC members were left puzzled as they were waiting their deputy president speak. Apparently Mabuza abandoned the last scheduled address after hearing about chaos that had erupted in the area, leaving hundreds of ANC followers disappointed and shocked.
A fight had broken out between community members where Mabuza was on an election campaign trail. Police had to intervene in Osizweni, Newcastle. The fight was so violent, police had to be called-in to diffuse the tensions. Mabuza apparently chickened out and ran away, abandoning his campaign.
Mabuza has admitted that campaigning has been difficult this year. He says the main concerns from the public unemployment and poverty. In most of his campaign sessions, Mabuza had to eat a humble pie and apologize to civilians for poor service delivery from the governing party. "This campaign is difficult because the Covid-19 situation has created a serious challenge. Several have lost their livelihoods, a lot of companies have closed down, poverty has deepened, unemployment has grown. This is a situation that we understand and [we're] working on it," Mabuza was quoted by TIMES LIVE.

Maybe David mabuza ran away because he was afraid that KZN comrades were going to turn against him since he sold KZN ANC by voting with Ramaphosa.
