We do not fear MK, Ramaphosa tells supporters in KZN President Ramaphosa hits KZN campaign trail

As the South African election comes closer, the African National Congress faces a new threat from one of their own, former President Jacob Zuma, and President Ramaphosa, says he is not sacred. 

But Zuma’s MK party has indeed been making waves and drawing huge crowds, especially in KwaZulu Natal. While MK will also battle for a chunk with Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), MK could emerge a serious threat. 

Speaking in Durban on Saturday, President Ramaphosa said many people have ruled out the fact that ANC can win with an outright majority. 

The ANC was fighting for victory in the elections. 

The formation of the MK party would not threaten the ANC’s chances of retaining power in KZN and Union Buildings. 

The ANC has built a solid support base over the years and its supporters will be out in their numbers to vote, the president affirmed.

There has been the mobilisation of party structures ahead of the elections. 

“The ANC has an overarching presence in KZN and all other political parties that are emerging today are trying to nibble the edges and all they will ever do is to nibble at the edges. 

“The ANC has great hegemony and we will emerge victorious because the people of KZN and indeed South Africa love the ANC, President Ramaphosa said. 

“We are going to have a clear majority. Even recent making of a party called MK party will see what the ANC is all about, even here in KZN. I have no doubt about that. Our strength and our support here is strong,” said President Ramaphosa. 

The MK party is led by former president Jacob Zuma. 

The ANC and the MK party are involved in a dispute regarding the name and logo.

The High Court in Durban is expected to deliver judgment on the trademark today. 

The ANC has maintained that the name and logo belong to it. But this is disputed by the MK party.
