ANC Mogale City mayoral candidate: Move on from Nkandla
Peace Mabe said those who spoke about Zuma's corruption cases were using cheap politicking.
JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) mayoral candidate for Mogale City, Peace Mabe, said that some opposition parties were misusing the Nkandla saga to campaign for votes, and has appealed to them to move on and forgive President Jacob Zuma.
Mabe was speaking following a door to door campaign in Mogale City yesterday.
She was accompanied by Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane and some ward councillors.
On Saturday, Kgalema Motlanthe joined ANC provincial chairperson, Paul Mashatile, on a door to door campaign in Dobsonville, Soweto.
Political parties were out on the ground interacting with community members and making promises about how they would govern municipalities should residents vote for them.
Mabe said that those who spoke about Zuma's corruption cases while campaigning were using cheap politicking.
"Julius Malema in particular should stop attacking an old man. He has said his piece about what Zuma has done, he's accepted. Zuma has apologised and we are moving on."
Yesterday, at the IFP's Gauteng manifesto launch in Ekurhuleni, party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi told supporters that Zuma was under a cloud of allegations.
Buthelezi said that he believed corruption was at every level of government within the ruling party and not limited to Zuma.
