The ex-South African leader has taken a swipe on the opposition.

President Jacob Zuma has taken a verbal attack at the two major opposition leaders DA Mmusi Maimane and EFF Julius Malema describing them in terrible language.

Who is going to lead this country if you don’t vote? Will it be led by that boy who was being led by that white woman [referring to DA leader Mmusi Maimane and Helen Zille] or is it going to be led by that crazy boy in the red [in reference to EFF leader Julius Malema]? Never!” he said.

Zuma received a warm welcome from supporters – including from a host of white‚ Afrikaner residents – in the popular KZN south coast town of Port Shepstone.

Hundreds of people rushed to take selfies and shake hands with Zuma at the Shelly Centre on Tuesday‚ where he was on a campaign encouraging people to register to vote.

“I would like to see you build something that will benefit all of us‚ something that will bring the country together. Thank you for coming here and God bless you‚” said Francois Labuschagne‚ a resident in the area‚ during a brief audience with Zuma.

Zuma wasted no time taking shots at the leadership capabilities of opposition parties during his address in Zulu.
