Zuma appeared in the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Monday.

Zuma and the French company Thales face crimes of fraud, corruption, extortion and money laundering in connection with the 1999 billions of rand arms trade.

Dube says Zuma still has a lot of influence on ANC.

“At the end of his term, he’s still fascinating. He’s still at the heart of ANC to some extent. Everything that happened before and after the collapse of ANC, JZ (Jacob Zuma) should have been at the center. Wasn’t a mistake, “says Dube.

He says the ANC made Jacob Zuma “its soul.”

“If this soul, named Jacob Zuma of ANC, betrays his own organization, it will be the end of ANC,” says Dube.

Some ANC leaders, including the suspended Secretary-General Ace Magashule and the suspended former Northwest Prime Minister Supra Mahumapelo, attended the proceedings.

Zuma’s supporters also arrived in court singing a struggle song.

“I don’t think he’s a dying horse. These aren’t his last kicks. Jacob Zuma understands our country’s power indicators very well. This is the country’s. Remember that he is an integral part of all negotiations and knows the power structure, that is, all the secrets related to power. The design of our country. So he is a dying horse. I can’t just say that, “says Dube.

“I think ANC is a blind organization. It’s a visionless organization. In our country, there was colonization, apartheid, and in 1994, what was called the evil editorial transition. These The stage showed the transfer of power in our country. Looking at this case, we tried to tilt our power transition in 2005, but it became a project that failed to some extent, and now we are back. After that, we can be confident that there will be a serious power shift in our country and that the power shift will come at the expense of ANC, “Dube said.
