http://www.sabc.co.za/news/a/6b48220...t:-ANC-membersThe African National Congress (ANC) marched through the streets of Durban on Friday to defend the dignity of President Jacob Zuma.
The party says there are concerted efforts to embarrass the president and as a result, he is taking strain. It says the booing of Zuma at the Nelson Mandela memorial service and then at Bafana Bafana's game against Brazil this week, brought matters to a head.
ANC Ethekwini Region Chairperson Sibongiseni Dlomo says President Zuma is part of the collective and therefore people should never personalise any issue with him as an individual.
Dlomo was referring to several incidents in which the president was booed. The booing at the Mandela Memorial in December
last year, and more recently at the Bafana game against Brazil in Johannesburg on Wednesday, forced matters to come to a head.
“We as ANC are saying at eThekwini region, 'Hands-off President Jacob Zuma'. If there are any issues with our government, we must address them not throw insults to our president Msholozi. We dislike that greatly.”
Zuma has dignity ??
