South African President, Jacob Zuma’s biggest critic has parliament and police provide security for her, an ANC MP after a number of death threats against her.
Parliamentary spokesman Moloto Mothapo said the decision followed a security assessment that confirmed “a security threat existed” against Makhosi Khoza.
Ms Khoza has been a prominent critic of President Jacob Zuma and corruption within the governing ANC.
Last week she received a death threat saying she had 21 days left to live.
The self proclaimed African feminist responded to Zuma during a conference in Randburg saying: ”In case I do not make it on August 8, 2017. Mr President you must know that you are haunting the South African nation. Please Mr President, step down.”
“Mr President, 11 million South Africans voted for you, and not just one million ANC members. You may wish to contest the ANC presidency in December 2017, but South Africa no longer needs you, Mr President.”
“Please save South Africa, save jobs Mr President, save the economy and save women… I cannot even say more about how much you have violated the country’s Constitution.”
Zuma apparently wants to run for a third term as President, something that has been received with a lot of hostility.
Winnie Mandela during an interview with BBC said that ‘there is something wrong with South Africa.”
Mr Zuma will be the first South African President to sit for more than two terms should he launch his re election bid.
