Jacob Zuma’s Health Sparks Concern as Campaigns Halt

Reports suggest that Zuma's recent health issues, including fatigue and low blood pressure, have raised alarm among doctors and his security team

Special to The Accra Times

Concerns have arisen regarding the health of former South African President Jacob Zuma after he collapsed, prompting the suspension of his campaign activities for the uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) Party, reports  Amanda Khoza and Qaanitah Hunter in an exclusive News24 report.

Reports suggest that Zuma’s recent health issues, including fatigue and low blood pressure, have raised alarm among doctors and his security team. Despite his absence from recent court appearances and campaign events, the party spokesperson denies any health concerns, attributing Zuma’s absence to prior commitments and the need for rest before extensive travel.

While sources indicate Zuma’s recovery from the fall, citing fatigue as a contributing factor, there are ongoing allegations of poisoning and recurring health issues. Some speculate that Zuma’s significance to the MK Party lies primarily in his brand recognition, with concerns raised about the party’s future beyond the elections.
