- Supporters of former president Jacob Zuma are allegedly camping outside his Nkandla homestead
- A video showing a loyal supporter pledging his support for Zuma has now been shared on Twitter
- The video has angered many South Africans who can't wrap their heads around the man's passion for Zuma
It seems as though former president Jacob Zuma still has quite a few die-hard supporters. A post shared to Twitter, which claimed that there were people camping outside Nkandla, resulted in a few concerned responses.
The man in the video shared goes on a rant about Zuma and his support for the former president. The clip is just 56-seconds long but it does show that Zuma's supporters are loyal even after his presidency came to an end.
South Africans have shared their distaste for the clip with many believing the man has been brainwashed.
The man speaking in the video changes languages during the video. The gist of his video is that they will defend Zuma until death, even if blood is spilt, even if they have to be arrested. Take a look at the clip below:
The comments contained many strong opinions about the former president. View some of them below:
"So these people had to wait for Malema to meet up with him first then run and act as if the eThekwini region was behind him... I wonder if the tea didn't take place would all of this be happening."
"This gives me Bushiri supporters vibe."
"Aah, a cult formed out of nothing! Populism at its highest form. This is the peak of it. The truth is that these former military men seek relevance and nothing else."
In other Zuma news, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the former president's daughter had shared a cheeky online about her father. Dudu shared images of herself and her dad on the afternoon of Monday, 15 February, the day Zuma was supposed to appear before the State Capture Inquiry.
She shared her greetings from the Nkandla homestead and spoke about her father having a 'lovely, easy morning'. Read her full post below:
"Afternoon greetings South Africa From eNkandla, KwaDaKwanuse Homestead... Had a lovely easy morning, he actually slept in, as he was rushing nowhere."
