Scores of people have been arriving in numbers at Nkandla from different parts of the country on Saturday in support of Former president Jacob Zuma.


Zuma still has until midnight on Sunday to hand himself over to the police, or else he will have to be forcibly arrested by SAPS.

This comes after the former president was handed a 15-month prison sentence earlier this week.

Crowds of supporters started arriving at Nkandla on Thursday.

According to ENCA several ANC veterans and high-profile members are also present at Nkandla in support of Zuma.

Meanwhile, Zuma has asked the Constitutional Court to revoke its ruling that he is guilty of contempt of court.
His legal team claims 15 months in prison will endanger his health.

Zuma is expected to make a public address on Sunday in Durban, according to the Jacob Zuma Foundation.

Zuma would then turn to the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday, where an urgent application to interdict Police Minister Bheki Cele from effecting his arrest will be heard, according to a tweet by the foundation on Friday night.

Meanwhile, the African National Congress (ANC) has postponed its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting to control the situation in former President Zuma’s home in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal.

The meeting was supposed to start from Saturday 3 July until Monday, 5 July 20201.

“In arriving at this decision the ANC were mindful of the situation developing in KwaZulu-Natal and the need for the party to give clear and principled leadership to ensure the maintenance of the rule of law and to avoid any violence, injury or loss of life.

“NEC members will be deployed to KZN and will work with the provincial leadership in this regard.”
