Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma To Race Against Ramaphosa For The Presidency

Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma To Race Against Ramaphosa For The Presidency

Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, the wife of former President Jacob Zuma has indicated that she will run against President Cyril Ramaphosa for the African National Congress (ANC)’s presidency. A few weeks ago, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma’s youngest daughter, Thuthukile Zuma, started posting social media posters of her mother’s bid for the ANC’s top job, according to the Daily Maverick

The posters announced Dlamini Zuma’s campaign ahead of its confirmation in the Sunday Times on 11 September. In 2017, Dlamini Zuma was narrowly beaten to the position of ANC president by just 179 votes by President Cyril Ramaphosa. 

Dlamini Zuma confirmed to the Sunday Times, via her spokesperson Lungi Mtshali, that she has been nominated for the position by ANC branches and is available to accept. That means it is game on in the ANC race for the presidency in December as the nomination window opened this week.

It is unknown whether Dlamini Zuma will run as the RET-faction candidate or whether she will put distance between it and her agenda, which is to fight on a “Womandla” or woman’s ticket.

For more than 100 years, the ANC has never had a female leader, and the lobby to accelerate women’s leadership is growing. But the RET faction does not have a credible leader to run against Ramaphosa in December and may put its weight behind her. 

Analysts believe that Ramaphosa has been weakened by the 2020 Phala Phala theft of game sale funds from a sofa they had been sewn into at his farm. It now turns out that the cash was hidden at the farm for much longer than the single weekend Presidency spokesperson Vincent Magwenya first claimed in June. 

Dlamini Zuma is popular in the ANC but not outside it especially considering her strong hand approach to dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jacob Zuma, Ace Magas****, Zanu Pf & the Zulu faction are the masterminds behind Nkosazana Dhlamini Zuma's bid for the ANC Presidency.

Nkosazana Zuma will look the other way while Zanu Pf butchers Zimbabweans. She will send Lindiwe Zulu to endorse rigged elections as having been free and fair. The Zuma's will get Platinum mines in Zimbabwe and protect the Gupta's from prison. They will recapture the state & enthrone their son Duduzane Zuma as the President in 2034.

However, it's not going to be a walk in the park as Nkosazaba is widely perceived as Jacob Zuma's proxy. Provinces such as Limpopo, Eastern & Western Cape, North West & Gauteng are likely to support Rhamaphosa. The Venda people, Shangaan, Sepedi, Tswana, Xhosa, Sotho, Swathi, Coloureds, Asians and Whites all hate Jacob Zuma. They will block the emergence of the Zuma / Zulu dynasty.

Here comes the reincarnation of Jacob Zuma.



Zuma is running everything despite being in jail. The system my son Jacob put in place is under his authority not location so that sand system will work against brother Cyril. Zuma is well experienced and well funded and mshini is well oiled. Bayethe

Mujuru Joyce was fired from zanupf over speculation she wanted to challenge Bob. Biti fired from MDC for suggesting leadership renewal. Idhi had to ascend through a coup because succession is taboo in the party. MDCT had to split because the party could not stand an elective congress after the death of MRT. CCC can't hold an elective congress for fear of dividing the party. Zimbabweans don't understand democracy and yet they are crying for it. Lord have mercy.

There we have a good lesson on what democracy is just across the Limpopo and still we are too **** to learn.

Then why is she still using the surname Zuma? Nkosazana Dhamini-Zuma? They have a sine together, Duduzane Zuma who also has presidential ambitions. it's about creating a family dynasty.

Both @ Worzell and @parasite you got it wrong. Jacob and Nkosazana were divorced a long time ago, while still in Maputo, before RSA majority rule.

As for maintaining the name, nothing new there. There us no law or rule forcing a divorcee to relinquish married title. Winnie went to the grave still using Nelson's surname.
