Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has disappointed South Africa, Democratic Alliance Gauteng leader John Moodey said on Saturday.

“Under ANC president Jacob Zuma's leadership, South Africa has become a banana state,” he told DA supporters at a rally for jobs at the Ellis Park indoor arena in Johannesburg.

“Zuma has brought shame to our country and belittled the presidency.”

Moodey referred to controversial incidents in which Zuma had been implicated such as the security upgrades to his private Nkandla home.

He also claimed that under Zuma's leadership, unemployment had risen in the country.

“Our people are unemployed, poor and hungry.”

Moodey said Gauteng was the “economic heartbeat of the country,” and encouraged people to use their vote on May 7 to “liberate Gauteng”.

“You and I can reverse and rescue the country from the downward spiral into doom,” he said.

“Let us make Gauteng blue.” - Sapa
