Joseph and a group of loyal supporters gathered outside of the Nkandla homestead on Thursday to show their support for Jacob. The group was seen dancing at the roadside and sang: “Zuma we love you so much.”
Briefly.co.za gathered that the entire Zuma family is unhappy with the manner in which Jacob was forced out of office. Joseph said the ANC should have allowed his brother to complete his term in office.
Joseph last met his brother in Pretoria three weeks ago, the brothers didn’t have much time to talk as Jacob was rushing between meetings with ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa and the party’s leadership.
Joseph compared what happened to his brother to a regular person being fired just before they were meant to go on pension.
"It would be better if the ANC showed how united they were but they never showed unity. It shows that division and that they are colluding with the opposition," he said.
Joseph vehemently denied that his brother had any involvement in the removal of then president Thabo Mbeki in 2008. He said when Mbeki was recalled it was a decision by the ANC and his brother had nothing to do with that decision.
