Zuma's claims about traditional leaders' authority not true

Zuma's claims that traditional leaders held more authority than parliament or the government are untrue. According to a paper titled Traditional Leadership and Independent Bantustans of South Africa: Some Milestones of Transformative Constitutionalism Beyond Apartheid, the Black Administration Act of 1927 severely limited black traditional leaders' powers, and traditional leaders were subject to the government, and not the other way around.

South Africans laugh at Zuma's goal

South Africans on Facebook cracked up over Zuma's comments about obtaining a two-thirds majority.

Glenn Gordon said:

"This man was too sick the other day to stand trial, and yet he wants to steal the little bit that he left behind."

MK party denied Zuma supports them because he hates Ramaphosa

In a related article, Briefly News reported that the MK party denied that Zuma supports them because he hates Jacob Zuma.

This was after the ANC's KZN secretary, Bheki Mtilo, slammed Zuma and said his supporting the MK party was tantamount to resigning from the ruling party.

South Africans sided with Mtolo and believed that Zuma despises Cyril Ramaphosa, which could be why he is voting for the MK.
