People are misreading history if they think Zuma will go: Justice Malala

African National Congress (ANC) stalwarts and some senior leaders have come out strongly against President Jacob Zuma, calling for his resignation.

Members of the ANC National Executive Committee (NEC), Dr Zweli Mkhize and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa have backed Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan on the fraud charges.

However, political analyst, Justice Malala, told Stephen Grootes on the Midday Report that people who think President Jacob Zuma will soon be forced out are going to be disappointed.

If we think he is leaving now, we are misreading history and we are misreading President Zuma.

Justice Malala, political analyst

I think we will see more court cases. You will see more battles in court. But not just yet. I think we still have some time of President Zuma in power.

Justice Malala, political analyst

He says Zuma was facing corruption and rape charges but still became the President of South Africa and the ANC for two terms.

Malala also says Zuma's administration has been failed to grow the economy and create jobs, but he is still around.
