Zuma said the party gave the Commission concrete evidence to prove irregular voting during the 2024 general elections.

Zuma, also a member of the African National Congress, accused his party of opposing progress. He added that as long as he was still a member of the ANC, he would find means within the party to continue exposing the agents of white monopoly capital.
