After months of heated negotiations and failed attempts to achieve any kind of consensus, President Jacob Zuma turned 74 years old today, drawing strong criticism from opposition parties EFF and DA.
EFF’s Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said “With the host of problems this country is currently facing, the fact that our president is devoting time to the human process of aging is an affront to South Africans everywhere,” said Ndlozi.
DA’s Mmusi Maimane who has been advocating for Zuma to do the right thing and resign said “To move forward unilaterally and simply begin the next year of his life without bipartisan support—is that any way to lead a country?” Much to the applaud of DA supporter. Mmusi added, ‘A good leader should have remained 73 until we have sorted our problems out’
According to ANC officials, Zuma attempted to work with the DA and EFF leaders right up until the April 11 deadline, but was ultimately left with no choice except to turn a year older.
Happy Birthday President
