During the announcement, Zuma stated that his new party has already been registered with the Independent Electoral Commission and intends to participate in the upcoming general elections.

He was accompanied by his daughter, Duduzile Zuma, who is a member of the new party.

Zuma cited his reasons for leaving the ANC, claiming that the party under the leadership of Cyril Ramaphosa had deviated from its original purpose and no longer represented the interests of the people.

He accused the current government and the ANC of disregarding traditional leaders, failing to consult with them, and undermining their members.

While Zuma’s decision to form a new party has generated significant attention, opinions on Umkhonto We Sizwe vary. Some may view it as a fresh alternative to the ANC, offering a new perspective and potentially attracting disillusioned ANC supporters.
