ANC KZN acknowledge concerns over Zuma campaigning on the ground

The African National Congress (ANC) in Kwazulu-Natal has responded to questions surrounding former president Jacob Zuma's role in the campaign trail leading up to the 2019 elections.

Provincial Secretary of the ANC Mdumiseni Ntuli addressed a press briefing earlier on Wednesday.

Eyewitness News reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo was there.

It was reaffirmed by the ANC in Kwazulu-Natal that the former president is an important member just like any member of the ANC and is needed and is by and large a part of the election machinery to reach out to the people of South Africa as they embark on this campaign process

They acknowledge there are some quarters within society who say, how can you have a character such as former president Zuma campaign on behalf of the party but the argument by Ntuli is to say the movement has taught them that they cannot disassociate themselves from someone how is part of a movement that groomed him.

Ziyanda Ngcobo, EWN reporter

There is a bit of a moral dilemma that they face, we will have to see how they deal with this going forward.

The KZN leadership has sidestepped questions over Zuma's supposed endorsement of the Black First Land First movement outside the Pietermaritzburg High Court last week, and whether he should be disciplined for it.

The KZN ANC were saying that they do not believe the former president who has been a loyal and committed member of the ANC would all of a sudden decide to endorse another political party.
