While the presidential seat gets hot for Zuma, a number of South Africans have declared their support for Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, Zuma’s ex-wife and suspected murderer.
This is according to a strong party member and Poet, Ntsiki Mazwai, who was confirmed to be among the people who see Nompumelelo NtuliZuma, popularly known as MaNtuli, as the best candidate who best fits the presidential seat.
Poet Ntsiki Mazwai, who has not been a supporter of Jacob Zuma said while speaking with news reporters, that she does not shy away from shouting it to the rooftops.
Mazwai’s comment followed National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) boss Shaun Abrahams’ recent announcement that Zuma’s estranged fourth wife is officially a suspect in an alleged plot to kill her husband.
Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma was charged with attempted murder last year and has now been told she still is officially a suspect in an alleged plot to kill her husband.
She was later kicked out of the Zuma homestead in January last year by State Security Minister David Mahlobo‚ who told her she was being investigated in connection with a plot to poison Zuma.
The Zuma alleged poisoning apparently took place in June 2014 and the NPA boss revealed in a letter to the lawyer in charge of the case against Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma that her criminal case that saw her being banned from the president’s home in Nkandla, is still open.
Reacting to the allegation, Mazwai, among other strong supporters said Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma will remain their “Hero” despite court charges.
The poet has criticised President Jacob Zuma for, among other things, corruption in the ANC, “failing” to address the Fees Must Fall protests and, recently, Fezekile ‘Khwezi’ Kuzwayo’s death.
Taking to Twitter, the poet criticised the ANC leaders, calling them blessers and alcoholics who have turned deaf ears to people’s cries.
“This country is unbelievable….. Its like black people don’t know how to think anymore …..just protect the white man [sic],” she said as she claims the Zuma-led administration is pro-whites.
This echoed her earlier statement that the ruling party was failing to address the fees crisis because it was afraid of white monopoly capital.
Meanwhile, MaNtuli’s lawyer Ulrich Roux told the Sunday Times on Sunday that his client’s constitutional rights are being severely infringed upon and yet the head of the NPA, as he has done in other high-profile cases this year, refuses to accept any responsibility and sends a letter to me confirming that my client is regarded as a suspect in the matter.
Roux said Abrahams has no grasp of what is contained in the docket in this matter. “In the event that there was any shred of evidence implicating my client in a so-called attempt to kill Jacob Zuma, then why have they not arrested her or brought her before court? He asked.
