President Jacob Zuma was reportedly mocked by Malamulele residents in Limpopo when he told them their grievances would be seen to.
The City Press reported that the residents jeered and called for ANC officials to leave the Malamulele Stadium during the election rally.
The president promised the residents a resolution to them wanting their own municipality.
“It is important that we conclude the matter within a reasonable time. Since the matter is been presented to the president I am now going to take an interest to look at the matter…I don’t believe we cannot resolve this matter,” Zuma was quoted as saying by the City Press.
“The matter is now in the hands where it is supposed to be so that it can be concluded. That is what we can say. We can’t say more than that,” he said.
“I don’t want to tell a lie. I can’t on my own come here and take a decision. I am not a dictator; only dictators do so.”
Zuma was mocked during the Nelson Mandela memorial service at the FNB Stadium in December last year and reportedly mocked again during Bafana Bafana’s friendly match against Brazil in March.
