Political Desk: 'It will be difficult to support Zuma and not drag ANC into it'

Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni says it is going to be a polarising attempt for people to support former president Jacob Zuma at personal level without dragging the ANC into it.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa on the 702 Breakfast Show, Mnguni says getting the ANC involved is inevitable because, as the party's former leader, they are still using him to campaign for elections.

I do not foresee a situation where some people won't be wearing the party colours. For example, there might be an attempt to print t-shirts with neutral colours and not have ANC colours, but eventually it does drag the ANC because this is the former leader of the party.

Lukhona Mnguni, Political analyst
