The video drew strong reactions on social media and many slated the SACP and stood by the former president.

It features Solly Mapaila, SACP Deputy General Secretary, questioning the ANC for wanting to allow Zuma to campaign at the next elections.

In a harsh statement, Mapaila says that a responsible party doesn’t unite with criminals.

He goes on to say that the Communist Party “finds it difficult” to campaign on the same platform at Jacob Zuma.
