Nkandla residents disagree with ANC’s push for early Zuma exit

The gloomy, overcast weather here in Nkandla is perhaps a reflection of how residents feel about Zuma leaving the top post within the coming hours.

NKANDLA, KwaZulu-Natal – Residents in President Jacob Zuma’s hometown of Nkandla disagree with the African National Congress (ANC)’s push to remove Zuma from office before 2019.

The gloomy, overcast weather in Nkandla is perhaps a reflection of how residents feel about Zuma leaving the top post within the coming hours.

Bongumusa Mthethwa, who is a card-carrying Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) member, says that he believes that the ANC has blurred the lines between its role as a ruling party and Zuma’s position as head of state

Local Nkandla businessman Michael Bhengu says that the concerns around Zuma’s image during the 2019 campaign trail make no sense because was never going to be the face of the party as he’s no longer party president.

Another IFP supporter here says they’ll welcome Zuma back with open arms, jokingly saying: "Msholozi can become IFP president and defeat the ANC for good".
