South Africa: The ANC Needs one More Sto Defeat Jacob Zuma’s MK party

On Monday, the Durban high court decided that was in favor of the uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK) party and against the ruling African National Congress (ANC). This is only the most recent in a series of legal disputes between Jacob Zuma and his former political party. The court officials declared during a live broadcast, “The application is dismissed with costs.”

Jacob Zuma, the eighty-two-year-old former president of South Africa, left the African National Congress (ANC) in December and is currently the leader of the uMkhonto weSizwe Party, also known as the MK Party. Zuma led the country from 2009 until his removal due to extensive corruption charges.

His popularity has aided MK Party in becoming a potentially significant candidate in the next polls, particularly in his native province of KwaZulu-Natal, which is anticipated to be a major battlefield in this year’s elections.

However, the opposition MK shares the same name as the ANC’s armed wing, which Nelson Mandela oversaw during the apartheid era while in exile. After the regime’s racial segregation practices and white minority control, it was disbanded.

On the grounds of alleged intellectual property theft, the ANC has attempted to prevent Zuma’s party from using the MK moniker. The party bears the name of the ANC’s previous military branch. Its legal bid contested the MK’s authority to use the now-defunct organization’s name and trademark.
