The African National Congress (ANC) Secretary-General Fikile Mbalula has described the uMkhonto weSizwe Party (MK) leader Jacob Zuma as a force to be reckoned with in the country’s political landscape.

The MK party which was launched in December 2023 managed to garner 14.5% of the national vote in last week’s election.

It has replaced the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in the third position.

Mbalula says the MK party will get many seats in the National Assembly.

“But the fact of the matter is that as we speak today, Jacob Zuma is a force to be reckoned with in the politics of South Africa. He is now 14% on the board and has surpassed EFF. Nobody has surpassed us, we’re still there with a reduced majority.”

“But these ones have been surpassing each other. So Zuma has displaced EFF, he would have more than 50 MPs there in Parliament,” adds Mbalula.
