'I will stop smoking dagga the day Zuma stops being corrupt': King

AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo has described the ANC and President Jacob Zuma as "corrupt hooligans" in Qunu in the Eastern Cape, The Times reported on Monday.

At a prayer service for former president Nelson Mandela, Dalindyebo reportedly said the African National Congress had distorted the anti-apartheid icon's legacy and behaved arrogantly.

"Zuma's leadership is distorting Madiba's leadership, it's distorting the ANC's leadership."

ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu told the newspaper the king's remarks were "unfortunate".

"He can't insult a head of state and then demand to be respected in turn."

Mthembu said the king should allow his "subjects" to decide for themselves who they would vote for in elections.

Dalindyebo said if the party remained in power for another 10 years, South Africans' freedom would be compromised.

He said: "I will stop smoking dagga the day Zuma stops being corrupt".

The weed comment is merely an expression. Surprised so few people havent heard it before.
Thanks bru.
For the last time to all those that dont understand, this is just an old Xhosa expression, it does not mean he actually smokes ganja.
He was just talking in riddles, meaning Zuma has no right to expect respect or us to behave while he is busy with so much shyte.

Morning ALL,

So this is the state where our beloved country has become. What happened to respect,honour and doing things accordingly?

I believe if you are not satisfied about something, there are always channels to follow, For people to see the difference you just have to follow channels when voicing your concerns than to stoop low like this King. Smoking weed won't help the nation to move forward,only voting the party you believe will bring change will.
