The Fighters demanded the axing of honorable Zuma as one of the terms and conditions of forming a coalition government with the ruling party.
Nonetheless, ANC’s youth league said the axing of daddy Zuma will never happen. To them, Zuma is a darling and they will never let go of him.
Speaking on the ongoing coalition talks, ANCYL’s treasurer general Reggie Nkabinde warned that the thoughts about dethroning Zuma for coalition with the EFF shouldn’t be entertained.
Mr Zuma he said, cannot be sacrificed for ANC to form government with the EFF.
“It won’t happen. Only when I am dead. Zuma is not going anywhere. We are going to do a nice farewell for him in 2019 when he leaves government and the ANC. (We will do that) to say he has served us well and best,” Nkabinde told news-hunters in Johannesburg.
People Love Zuma, He’s a Hero
To the ANCYL treasurer general, Jacob Zuma is an ideal leader and a hero. He helped ANC to gather many votes because people loved him.
“He’s my hero (and) I am more than happy with him. Through Zuma we have increased our numbers. People love Zuma, they fill up stadiums to listen to him,” Nkabinde proclaimed.
With that, he asserted that the ANC didn’t flopped at polls. The party only failed to capture the metros, Nkabinde argued.
Reports have it that the ANC is still negotiating with the EFF in order to form coalition and govern the hung municipalities. Especially the metros of Gauteng.
The EFF however, has asserted in many instances that they wouldn’t partner with the EFF.
For instance, the Fighter’s spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi once said: “we will not be willing to go into a coalition with the ANC.
We think the most important thing about these results is that they are being humbled by the people of South Africa and we must not deny them that lesson,” Ndlozi added
