Zuma’s Nkandla bill may cost ANC local government votes
Some Western Cape residents say they may not vote for the ANC over the party’s handling of the Nkandla matter.
Some residents in both Khayelitsha and the Siqalo informal settlement have threatened not to vote for the ruling party if President Jacob Zuma doesn't step down ahead of the 3 August local government elections.
The Constitutional Court recently handed down judgment on the Nkandla spending matter, ruling that Zuma is responsible for a portion of the money used to renovate his KwaZulu-Natal homestead. Soon after the ruling President Zuma apologised in an address to the nation, saying he always intended to pay the state for some of the upgrade work done to his home.
On the same night, ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said the party had accepted Zuma's apology.
Khayelitsha resident Nkululeko Melani had harsh words for the ANC.
"We are tired of Jacob Zuma, he must just take the easy way and go out or else we're not voting ANC."
Melani says Zuma and the ruling party have not taken the recent ruling by the Constitutional Court seriously.

Siqalo community member Sizwe Loyo has also criticised the President.
"Why are even ANC legends saying 'Zuma must fall'? Because they've also lost faith in him."
Loyo says despite the President's shenanigans, he remains a loyal ANC supporter.
