Mandela's granddaughter calls for Jacob Zuma to step down

President Nelson Mandela's granddaughter, Ndileka Mandela, joined the voices that are calling for President Zuma to step down for the good of the country.

She says the ANC need to lead by the principles of its previous leaders and uphold what they promised the people of South Africa - equal education and job opportunities for all.

I still feel morally obligated to call government to account.

Ndileka Mandela, President Nelson Mandela's granddaughter

The founding document of the ANC says the people shall govern which means the people have the right to call government to account because the government was chosen by the people.

When asked if she would vote for the ANC in the next election, Mandela did not hesitate to say "no".
