‘There’s more to come,’ says Mbalula to Zuma and MKP

ANC secretary-general Fikile Mbalula says the party’s Electoral Court appeal case against the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) is just the beginning of what awaits former President Jacob Zuma and his uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) Party.

Mbalula says the ANC is prepared to ‘throw the kitchen sink’ at Zuma by subjecting the MK Party to further legal action. “Next week, we are challenging the ownership of uMkhonto. This is just the beginning,” Mbalula said.

‘THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING,’ WARNS MBALULA

“We are challenging him [on] two levels. Here at the Electoral Court, we are challenging him in terms of the deregistration of this party. Next week, we are challenging the ownership of uMkhonto. This is just the beginning,” he said.

On Tuesday, the Electoral Court in Bloemfontein heard the first arguments in the ANC’s legal challenge to have the MK party, named after its disbanded military wing, deregistered.

According to Business Day, Mbalula said the ANC was not worried about losing in court. He said Zuma’s endorsement of a new party was a shock for the ANC.

“Should anything work against us, it will not be the end of the [world]. Should we register a victory, it is equally good for the ANC. We respect the rule of law.,” he said.

ZUMA IS HISTORICALLY ABUSIVE TOWARDS THE MASSES – MBALULA

“Jacob Zuma has done something that we wouldn’t have expected from him, to form a political party against the ANC. As the ANC, we are standing here saying this [MK] is our property,” the SG said.

Mbalula also accused Zuma of being abusive towards South Africans by pretending that he cared about the needs of the masses when he didn’t.

“He [Zuma] has historically abused the masses of the people as he continues to seek to do so today [Tuesday] by pretending that his selfish needs are, in fact, the needs of the people.”

“The ANC became too ambivalent and accommodative of leaders whose ethical orientation was at odds with its own values. Renewal is setting the bar higher again to ensure the ANC never allows an individual leader to lower its ethical bar to be accommodative..” he told the media.
