Ramaphosa Responds to Zuma’s Party Switch: ‘People Can Choose Who to Vote For’

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa acknowledged his predecessor Jacob Zuma’s statement about supporting a new party instead of the ANC. Zuma, on Saturday, revealed his backing for the recently registered uMkhonto we Sizwe, and criticized Ramaphosa, calling him a ‘proxy’ for white capitalist interests.

During a Monday press conference on the Gaza situation, Ramaphosa commented on Zuma’s statements. When asked about the ANC’s response, Ramaphosa said, ‘We’ve heard what he said, and that’s as far as we’re willing to go right now. Everyone in our country can express their voting choices, and we’ve taken note of Zuma’s announcement.’

This move marks a significant political shift, and it remains to be seen how it will impact the political landscape in South Africa. Stay tuned for further updates. (Source: BBC)
