Jacob Zuma former SA president says Madikizele-Mandela never sold out

DURBAN –  Jacob Zuma former SA president says that Winnie Madikizela-Mandela remained committed to the struggle and never sold out.
Zuma addressed thousands at the KwaZulu-Natal African National Congress (ANC)’s memorial of the struggle icon.
He says that his attendance was as an ordinary branch member, despite his presence seemingly having led to deputy president David Mabuza no longer coming to the province as planned.
ANC deputy secretary-general Jesse Duarte replaced Mabuza as the keynote speaker at the event.
Despite the gathering having meant to be about Madikizela-Mandela, speaker after speaker made it a point to give a special mention to Zuma, his current court case and how he is being persecuted.
ANC NEC member Edna Molewa took it a step further by drawing parallels between the late veteran’s life and that of Zuma.
Molewa says that the recent documentary on Madikizela-Mandela’s life is disturbing because it shows how lies were spread which caused great suffering while her own comrades turned their backs on her.
Without mentioning his name, Molewa suggested that Zuma is facing the same level of persecution and the documentary should serve as a wake-up call for the current comrades.
