Sing for Zuma
ANC President Jacob Zuma's second term campaign got a boost when Limpopo-based kwasa music king Malo-A-Botsheba released an album supporting his re-election in Mangaung next month.
Malo-A-Botsheba is the uncle of Louis Mabokela, who is facing a charge of malicious damage to property for defacing the portrait that exposed Zuma's private parts.
His actions follow hot on the heels of mbaqanga music group Ingane Zoma also recently releasing a pro-Zuma album.
The musician, born Steven Sefofa, released the album supporting Zuma after breaking ranks with ANC leaders in Limpopo, who want Motlanthe to be party president.
In the tune Msholozi 4 Second Term, he calls on Mangaung delegates to re-elect Zuma.
"We need to give Zuma a chance to rectify his mistakes, if there are any, by giving him a second term. I enrolled for matric and failed but I'm trying for the second time. So Zuma must be given a second chance," he says.
He adds: "Those who say they want Kgalema Motlanthe are confused. When Mbeki was in power they wanted him out and said they wanted Zuma and now they want him out. I think he deserves a second term."
The 12-track album Mangaung also has two songs that hail KwaZulu-Natal premier Zweli Mkhize and Mpumalanga premier David Mabuza as good leaders.
