A tweet shared by user, @AdvBarryRoux, shows a snippet of the SACP criticising the ANC for Jacob Zuma’s potential return and tweeps are not impressed.
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.
However, many tweeps were not impressed and claimed the SACP has a hidden agenda.
Some cited the party’s recent ties to the VBS scandal, while others raised certain allegations against Blade Nzimande.
Briefly.co.za gathered that many South Africans still hold Zuma in high regard.
