South Africa’s Former President Jacob Zuma Involved in Car Crash

Former South African President Jacob Zuma was engaged in an auto crash but escaped unhurt.

According to local news sources, a drunk motorist struck his official state vehicle on Thursday evening.

A member of his party, uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK), said it was intentional.

Zuma, suspended by the African National Congress (ANC), is campaigning for MK ahead of the May election.

The crash took place at 18:40 local time in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal.

“No injuries were reported,” police stated.

A 51-year-old guy was detained for DUI and careless driving.

Musa Mkhize, MK’s election director, alleged that the crash was staged.

Zuma, 81, was president from 2009 to 2018 and faced corruption allegations.

He is entitled to an official protection team.

The crash occurred just as he was forbidden from running in the next election due to a past jail sentence.

Opinion surveys suggest the ANC’s support may fall below 50% for the first time in 30 years.

MK’s influence, particularly in KwaZulu-Natal, may have an impact on the ANC’s support.
