The trend continued on Sunday when President Cyril Ramaphosa arrived at the Olive Convention Centre for the conference accompanied by newly-elected ANC provincial chairperson Sboniso Duma and his leadership team.
Ramaphosa was greeted by boos inside and Wenzeni uZuma. Duma took the microphone to plead with his comrades to show “revolutionary discipline”.
Duma said Ramaphosa was aware the province was not happy with Zuma’s arrest in July last year.
On social media, Zuma’s namesake foundation said the former president welcomed the love he continues to receive from supporters.
“HE [former] president Zuma has been inundated with phone calls from people telling him that ANC KwaZulu-Natal loves him and have been singing the Wenzeni uZuma song.
“Zuma says we must convey the message to those in the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal who love him that he loves them more and he loves the ANC,” said the foundation.
