Jacob Zuma has said it pains him to see educated black people “think like” and be “instruments” of white people.
The former president’s daughter Dudu Zuma-Sambudla posted a snippet of an apparently longer interview with her father on her Twitter page on Friday. It appears to be part of the same interview for which she posted a snippet on Thursday, as Zuma is seated in front of a banner for his foundation, wearing a white golf-shirt, and being interviewed by a member of the Wits Young Communist League at his home in Nkandla.
In the snippet, Zuma can be heard saying: “But at the centre of this is an African child …” Before switching to isiZulu: “absolutely problematic for me is to see Africans who are doctors and professors think like white people.
“That’s a problem I have … not just having the mindset of white people but to be instruments of white people…” he continues in English: “That just kills me.”
Zuma-Sambudla said the entire interview would be released on Tuesday, which marks Youth Day.
