I'm hurt over Zuma - Sexwale

Businessman Tokyo Sexwale said yesterday that ANC deputy president Jacob Zuma stood a good chance of being elected president of the party in Limpopo next month.

Speaking on SAfm, Sexwale said he was deeply hurt that Zuma was haunted by allegations of rape despite being cleared in court.

"The trend is clear, comrade Jacob Zuma will win this election. There are strong indications that he is in the lead," said Sexwale.

He said it was painful and unfair to keep accusing Zuma of rape while the court had found him not guilty.

"It is wrong and an insult to Zuma, it is either we respect the decision of the court or we take the route of a kangaroo court. It hurts me that Zuma is hounded for something that the court cleared him on. As for corruption allegations, he has not been charged," said Sexwale.

Sexwale's sympathy and perceived support for Zuma comes in the wake of allegations that he plans to fund Zuma's campaign for the ANC presidency.

According to the report, which Sexwale denied, in exchange for the funding he would be rewarded with the position of ANC national chairman.

"We talk all the time with Zuma. I last spoke to him last week, and I had met with Mbeki over the weekend. We do not talk politics," he said.

Sexwale said he had not given up on the race as ANC members were still allowed to nominate from the floor during the conference.

He said should Zuma be elected president, he would not rule alone - he would be guided by the policies of a collective.
