'Come election Day, May 29, they will feel us' – Zuma

Cape Town – Former president Jacob Zuma addressed a packed rally at Orlando Stadium in Soweto on Saturday, promoting the Umkhonto weSizwe Party (MKP) ahead of the May 29 elections.

He dismissed accusations that MKP is a “fake” organisation, promising significant changes if they come to power, including improved safety, healthcare, service delivery, and infrastructure.

“They labelled Umkhonto weSizwe Party (MKP) ‘fake’ and thought we were playing when it was launched, but watch this space, May 29 is coming and you’ll witness the real government.

“Come election Day, May 29, they will feel us, they said we were a fake organisation and would not last. They didn’t know our intentions, elamancaba elizayo,” IOL quoted Zuma as saying

Zuma criticised the current leadership for failing to serve the people and promised job creation and economic opportunities under an MKP government.

He condemned his 2021 imprisonment as unjust and vowed to empower traditional leaders to handle community issues. Zuma urged the crowd to support MKP in the upcoming elections.
