Johannesburg - The ANC has denied defending President Jacob Zuma's international adviser Lindiwe Zulu after an apparent reprimand from the presidency.
“The ANC has noted the coverage that suggests that the ANC through its secretary general has defended the international relations adviser to president Zuma, comrade Zulu, against a statement released by the presidency,” spokesman Jackson Mthembu said on Tuesday.
“This is not true.”
Zulu reportedly said on Friday that there were difficulties ahead of the July 31 elections in Zimbabwe, following problems with early voting.
Thousands of Zimbabwean security forces could reportedly not make their mark in early voting with polling stations opening late, and lacking indelible ink, stamps, voter rolls, ballot papers, and boxes.
