Zuma’s wife claims he “will finish what he started”
Thobeka Madiba-Zuma, one of the wives of President Jacob Zuma has announced that her husband isn’t going anywhere as pressure mounts on him to resign.
Madiba-Zuma shared a picture of herself and President Zuma on Instagram on Friday with the saying “Kuzoshuba ungalwi nomuntu ongalwi nawe”.
The post loosely translated means “It’s going get rough, don’t fight with someone who is not fighting you”.
Madiba-Zuma also reacted to a comment on the post saying “Zuma did not join the ANC in 1991, jumped ship or hip-hopped between the struggle and wealth accumulation”.
Zuma’s wife ended saying “Zuma will finish what he started because he doesn’t take orders beyond the Atlantic Ocean”
Leaders of the African National Congress in South Africa are reported to be making a final push to get the country’s President Jacob Zuma to resign.
ANC leader, Cyril Ramaphosa and other senior members of the party abandoned a key state event in Cape Town in order to push through an agenda to get Zuma out.
An ANC official in the Western Cape province said the change in schedule relates to the party’s push to force Zuma to stand down.
“We all know and anticipate that they are dealing with the current issue that is facing our country,” Faiez Jacobs, the party’s provincial secretary, told eNCA television.
President Zuma has refused to go insisting in a meeting with ANC leaders that he was still popular and loved by the people.
Zuma came into power in 2009 but has had his tenure characterized by corruption allegations and other scandals.
