'Evidence is needed to prove Zuma was involved in the KZN PEC collapse'

Political analyst Professor Tinyiko Maluleke says until proof is provided about former president Jacob Zuma's involvement in the collapse of the KZN elective conference, the issue must be treated with caution.

I heard Sihle Zikalala this morning accusing other national leaders of sewing divisions in the province except himself. He didn't include himself in that. People like him really need to step up and take up leadership.
