NKANDLA - Former President Jacob Zuma welcomed ANC leaders to his homestead in Nkandla on Sunday, 28 August. The guests hoped to gain wisdom from the ruling party’s former leader.
Among those who visited Zuma was the newly elected provincial chairperson Siboniso Duma, who hopes to unite members of the political party to strengthen its leadership. He told News24 that many topics for discussion were brought up.
The issues of building the nation and transferring the economy, wealth and land to the people of KwaZulu-Natal were discussed during the visit, Duma said. He said the former president also gave the new leadership advice on how to unite its people.
Zuma is currently serving his 15-month prison term at home. The former president was released on medical parole last September.
Duma said Msholozi was delighted by the visitors, which also included religious leaders and others in places of power. Members of the ruling party in the province will continue visiting infamous leaders from the ANC to draw inspiration, EWN reported.
South Africans reacted to the visit:
“A prime example of ANC "renewal" and "self-correcting" is when the newly elected KZN ANC leadership seek advice from one very sickly Jacob Zuma - a man charged with corruption and is out on faux parole.”
“Our mission has not changed, it will never change, 2024 is very much important more than 1994. Let us go out in large numbers and vote ANC out of power, let us give them enough time to seek Jacob Zuma's wisdom.”
“Seriously? What wisdom will he bring? Ideas on looting and state capture?”
“While on that newly elected ZN ANC PEC's visiting Zuma, I'm baffled why the ANC and EFF keep on visiting a former leader. This has never been done before. Is it just nostalgia or is there something to gain out of being associated with Zuma? Maybe it’s Zuma magic.”
