Former president Jacob Zuma's daughter has urged black parties to work together, but under two thirds majority for the ANC.
Former president Jacob Zuma's daughter Thokozile Zuma has called on black political parties to stand together.
The 26-year-old feels the parties should unite to advance the black agenda, particularly relative to land reforms.
Although her desire is to see the ANC achieve two thirds majority, Zuma believes the black parties should still work together with the ruling party.
Zuma said, "I'd like to see the black parties in Parliament getting together and pushing and growing the black agenda for us as a black nation to prosper. There's no point in us fighting each other or pinpointing each other when those who aren't deployed in politics are still poor.”
IOL reported that Zuma expects growth for black people after the 2019 elections and that the ANC is heading in the right direction.
