The ANC’s Dilemma: To Attack Or Ignore Jacob Zuma?

Instead, some prominent figures within the ANC have spearheaded a character assassination campaign against him, even though their own track records may not be entirely pristine.

It is undeniable that the internal power struggles within the ANC are captivating to observe, especially as the upcoming election draws near.

However, the decision to launch a campaign against former president Jacob Zuma may not be the wisest move. Zuma, known for his cunning ways, has publicly declared his loyalty to the ANC while covertly supporting the Umkhonto weSizwe (MK) party, which poses a significant threat to the ruling party’s stronghold in KwaZulu-Natal.

It is crucial to consider that Zuma still holds considerable appeal among those who believe in the racially divisive narratives and the notion of monopoly capital propagated by Bell Pottinger.

By attacking him, the ANC inadvertently strengthens his position in the eyes of his supporters. Perhaps a more strategic approach would be to treat him as a political has-been and focus on the party’s own agenda.

Ultimately, the ANC faces a dilemma: whether to engage in a potentially counterproductive battle with Zuma or to ignore him and concentrate on their own messaging.

The latter approach may prove more effective in countering his influence and regaining the trust of the electorate. As the election looms, the ANC must carefully consider the long-term implications of their actions and prioritize the unity and stability of the party.
