Jacob Zuma is rallying the youth as he continues to make his bid towards presidency.

This is a frightening prospect for many people (including me) as is support base is huge, young, communist and radical.

Zuma’s singing of his signature anthem “Awuleth’ Umshini Wami”, “Bring me my machine (Gun)” recently was criticised by ANC chairman Mosiuoa Lekota. Lekota was then warned his comments could spark further rifts within the ruling party (ANC). The rift within the ANC seems to be one of Communism versus Capitalism, and dissatisfied South Africans vs New South Africans.

I can’t for the life of me understand how this man can still be in the run for the presidency with all the scandal he has been through in the last year , but somehow he has managed to come through as a hero to many. I won’t be voting for a president who wants a machine gun.

    Awuleth’ Umshini Wami

    Umshini wami mshini wami
    khawuleth’umshini wami
    Umshini wami mshini wami,
    khawuleth’umshini wami
    Umshini wami mshini wami,
    khawuleth’umshini wami
    khawuleth’umshini wami
    Wen’uyang’ibambezela
    umshini wami, khawuleth’umshini wami


    My machine my machine
    Please bring my machine
    My machine my machine
    Please bring my machine
    My machine my machine
    Please bring my machine
    Please bring my machine
    You’re pulling me back
    My machine, Please bring my machine
