Former South African President Zuma in Road Accident, MK Party Alleges Foul Play

Jacob Zuma has escaped death in a road accident while travelling to campaign for the uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) party.

Former South African president, Jacob Zuma has survived a road accident.

According to reports, he was traveling from Nkandla to Eshowe in KwaZulu-Natal to campaign for the uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) party.

This comes as the Electoral Commission announced on Thursday that Zuma is barred from running for a seat in Parliament due to his criminal history.

Zuma was sentenced to 15 months in prison for contempt of court in relation to appearing before the State Capture Commission in June 2021.

The MK Party has threatened violence if Zuma is prohibited from running in the polls.

It has also claimed that there is foul play in the road crash that the former president Jacob Zuma and his bodyguards were involved in.

MK head of elections in the province, Musa Mkhize says Zuma was a target.

“What happened last night I must say that unfortunately, we have been waiting for it to happen and it has happened because the president was warned that he will be laying in hospital, we don’t know what more is still coming.

Whoever is doing it, they know themselves out there. I am not the one saying it, they said it publicly, they have said it on national broadcaster and people we all know who they are.”
