Is former President Jacob Zuma contemplating a departure from the African National Congress (ANC)? According to EWN, Some officials within the party suggest a possible link to a new political entity named after the ANC’s armed wing, uMkhonto weSizwe (MK).
This emerging party has already completed the registration process with the Electoral Commission (IEC), sparking concerns among ANC members.
The speculations gained traction following the recent resignation of struggle veteran Mavuso Msimanga and the circulation of posters featuring Zuma without the ANC logo on social media.
As the ANC faces internal challenges, Zuma will spend December 16, the anniversary of MK’s establishment, in Soweto.
Insiders reveal the existence of a group aiming to replicate the ANC’s origin story, envisioning collaboration between churches, traditional leaders, and politicians to reshape South Africa’s political landscape.
While some within the ANC hope for Zuma’s campaign support to avert electoral disasters, others associated with the new movement suggest his efforts should focus on rescuing the ANC from an external standpoint.
Sources from the project stress the importance of bringing the ANC to a decline in elections to prompt organizational introspection.
Moreover, it is reported that meetings with leftist formations, including the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), have taken place as part of this political manoeuvring.
Zuma’s schedule on Saturday encompasses visits to Avalon Cemetery’s Heroes Acre, Mam Winnie Madikizela Mandela’s home, and the Petros Molefe Eco Park. Additionally, he will address the media to mark the 16th founding anniversary of MK.
