Fire Ramaphosa, then we can talk – Zuma

Former President Jacob Zuma has set conditions for negotiating a coalition government with the African National Congress (ANC), including the removal of President Cyril Ramaphosa and Pravin Gordhan from their positions.

Zuma’s party, uMkhonto weSizwe (MKP), made significant gains in the recent elections, becoming the third largest opposition party and topping the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).

According to an insider, Zuma’s non-negotiable demands include the establishment of a state bank, land expropriation without compensation, and the creation of military bases to employ young people.

Zuma’s party performed exceptionally well in KZN, leading the ANC to seek coalition talks.

Zuma’s stance is seen as a power play, leveraging his party’s newfound influence to push for his agenda.

The ANC is facing a tough decision, weighing the need for a coalition against the controversial demands of the former president. The outcome will have significant implications for South Africa’s political landscape.

Zuma’s resurgence has sparked both interest and concern, with some viewing his party’s success as a sign of his enduring influence and others seeing it as a threat to the country’s stability.

As the political landscape continues to shift, one thing is clear: Jacob Zuma remains a force to be reckoned with in South African politics.
