Don’t miss the documentary Comrade President: The Man from Nkandla on Sunday 20 July at 3PM.Zumare

This biopic takes a look at the life and times of South Africa’s third democratically elected state president, Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, and his difficult journey to the highest office of his newly liberated country.


Born into poverty during apartheid, his survival skills are prominent as he overcomes controversy and scandal, to continue his reign as President.


Zuma, a young Zulu boy with no formal education, was stirred into a political awakening by stories of local rebellions and socialist revolutions in distant corners of the world.


His involvement in the 1950’s Defiance Campaign lead to a revolutionary life which included spending over a decade incarcerated at Robben Island, where he also learned to read and write.


After the liberation movement ended its war, his real troubles started. His accession to power was fraught with controversy and scandal. He fell out with at least two of his closest comrades, he’s tainted by corruption, he’s fired and his polygamy and infidelities outrage the conservative center.


But his uncanny survival skills, sophisticated legal team and long-standing connections with intelligence networks, help him survive as President, leader of the majority party and still in 2014, holding the levers of power.
