The Reason Behind South Africa’s “Zuma Tsunami”

The Reason Behind South Africa’s “Zuma Tsunami”

Jacob Zuma of South Africa survived almost all of the punches that would have ended his career, unlike other politicians.
The 82-year-old former president has never been knocked out, despite being knocked down occasionally like a determined prizefighter.

Election, charges of corruption, dismissal, rape charges, acquittal, and reelection as president followed by more accusations of corruption, denials, removal from office, imprisonment for contempt of court, release, and ban from standing for parliament.

He has been performing his well-known dance during the last election campaign, and the outcome of last week’s vote indicates that he still has a significant amount of power.

With 15% of the vote, his newly formed party defeated the African National Congress (ANC).
The African National Congress (ANC), which Mr. Zuma once commanded, has suffered greatly as a result of the results. It has lost its parliamentary majority for the first time in thirty years, and the “Zuma tsunami,” as it has been called, is partially to blame.
Mr. Zuma’s beaming smile can be seen beaming down from almost every street lamp in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal province’s main coastal city, Durban. The posters are for his recently founded party, uMkhonto weSizwe (MK), also known as Spear of the Nation, and they are colored green and black.
