South African President Jacob Zuma has said his party, the African National Congress (ANC) lost the elections in the Western Cape because ‘ghosts voted.’
According to HUFFPOST, Zuma said the Democratic Alliance (DA) used witchcraft to remain in power.
“I don’t know where they get the luck to win here because people in the majority are not living comfortable. I don’t know‚ [maybe] it’s because of witchcraft‚ witches practice their craft in different ways‚” Zuma said.“In the last elections I was satisfied that we are taking the Western Cape‚ I even said so. What went wrong? I too can’t tell you. It’s witchcraft‚ you never know. Maybe even ghosts are voting.
“There is not a single country where its president face eight votes [of no confidences] in parliament and all of them failed. The last time …they used large sums of money‚ buying people‚ money that is hard to say no to.
“Ancestors would abandon me if I would leave because of people who talk a lot. I will be with you‚ even when my term has ended. I will be in branches‚ speaking.”
