Jacob Zuma has been fiercely campaigning for the ANC on the road to the elections. In a recent video posted by Mbalula on social media, Zuma is heard telling voters to not let their dislike of him stop them from voting for the ANC.
In the footage, the former president says that it's silly to punish him by punishing the ANC. He goes on to say that the ANC is a movement and not a person. "It doesn't make sense to stop voting for the ANC because some fool from the Zuma family annoyed you."
Mzansi social media users had mixed reactions about his message. Twitter user Kagiso said: "I love Zuma BUT I'm not voting ANC for the first time and I'm loving it."
"I thought you don't approve Zuma's campaign for the clean ANC? I also thought you said during Zuma things were bad? Why change of tune?"
