He likened them to the white minority apartheid while speaking to supporters at his home in Nklandla, in the Kwazulu Natal province.

 

 

Zuma said the “punitive jail sentence without trial should engender shock in all those who believe in freedom and the rule of law. South Africa is fast sliding back to apartheid rule.’’
