Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has said that South Africa “is in crisis” and that the governing ANC has “messed up”.
She made this remark while she speaking to BBC on Mandela Day, which commemorates his birthday.
“something is very very wrong… with what we have done,” she said to Milton Nkosi.
President Jacob Zuma has come under increasing pressure to step down from former allies within the ANC.
He has been criticized for his handling of the economy as well as the corruption allegations that he faces.
It has been disclosed that Mr. Zuma will be replaced as ANC leader at the end of the year even though his presidential term comes to an end in 2019.
