Pro-Russian X accounts used to punt Zuma's MK Party

An analysis of accounts on social media platform X that have been used to promote Russian interests in South Africa shows they are now being utilised to rally support for a new party backed by former President Jacob Zuma, according to a director at the Centre for Information Resilience.

The observation is the latest example of how Moscow appears to be using social media to try and sway the outcomes of votes around the world as it seeks to promote leaders that can help further its interests.

Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela and North Korea. They're continuously attacking democracies everywhere using propaganda. And in this day and age, mostly via social media.
 
surprised they pick MK, would have thought Hamas and Iran would back the ANC.
maybe they had a falling out?
 
Yeah, all the pro Putin anti Ukraine guys are probably big Zuma lovers as well.

What about the Anti-Ukraine and Anti-Russia guys like me? They both got what was coming to them in my opinion.
 
Kinda funny if Russia is doing this after having the ANC looking out for them over the past couple of years.
 
I don't believe this Bloomberg article. Why would Russia prefer Zuma to Ramaphosa?

Zoomer's much easier to manipulate. He just wants power - thats why the Guptas could rob the country blind - he wasn't interested in the money

He makes them more money.

You forget it was Zuma that wanted Russia's Nuclear deal first. He is much more easier to manipulate too.

Zuma is honestly a walk-over.
 
Trump is the same honestly. Thats why they roll out the red carpet for Trump. He shares that Pomp and Glory that Hitler and Mussolini liked so much. Zuma is the same.

EASY TO MANIPULATE. Makes them feel grand and you get the keys and all the bricks of the castle even.

"Clapper added that foreign leaders who roll out the red carpet for Trump are able to manipulate Trump."
