NKANDLA - More than 100 ANC councillors are visiting former president Jacob Zuma at his home in Nkandla today (9 December). They marched to his residence and give him a bull as a token of their appreciation.
Ntando Khuzwayo, a ward councillor in eThekwini, said that the councillor will march in a convoy from Umvoti Toll Plaza in KwaZulu-Natal to Nkandla.
The ANC does not officially support this march or the gift that Zuma will be presented with. The event is an initiative by the councillors who are participating as they want to see how the former president is doing, because they have not seen him since before election campaigning.

“There is no such thing as an official ANC visit when an ANC member visits another ANC member. That does not need to be sanctioned by anyone," Khuzwayo said.
Khuzwayo added that the purpose of the visit is to show their gratitude towards Zuma for contributing towards the ruling party winning power in eThekwini in the local government election, The Witness reports.
Reactions to the ANC councillor's visit to Jacob Zuma
"People who know who their true leader is."
"When people are despondent they worship even the worst criminals. There is a serious lack of leadership in our political space, hence we are witnessing these kind of nightmares."

"What about Ace Magashule? Is he also going to be given a bull?"
"Factionalism remains alive."
"Let`s hope it won`t be at the tax/ratepayer`s expense. They ought to visit Nkandla as the ANC lost the municipality in Zuma`s presence."
Saffas react to poll in whether Duduzane would make a good SA president
Previously Briefly News reported that many South Africans see Duduzane Zuma as eye candy and to others, he is suited to be the next president of South Africa. Despite all the challenges facing his dad, the son of Jacob Zuma seems to have it all going for him.
According to some peeps, the young Msholozi would make a good president but he is carrying the 'wrong' surname. That is according to a regular social media user, @LeleMbinda.
Duduzane may be one of the good looking men in Mzansi and having the privilege of growing in a controversial family might dent his chances, but some people are adamant that he has what it takes and he must push for being a statesman.
