President of South Africa Jacob Zuma while addressing the ANC Cadres Forum insinuated that his recent party failure to beat the opposition Democratic Alliance in the Western Cape Stronghold is as a result of witchcraft. In his words, the president said;
“I don’t know where they get the luck to win here because people in the majority are not living comfortable. I don’t know‚ [maybe] it’s because of witchcraft‚ witches practice their craft in different ways.In the last elections I was satisfied that we are taking the Western Cape‚ I even said so. What went wrong? I too can’t tell you. It’s witchcraft‚ you never know. Maybe even ghosts are voting‚”
According to the president, witches nowadays even use electricity to practice their witchcraft. Zuma’s address was done in both isiZulu and isiXhosa. Jacob Zuma is a polygamist who has been married six times.
