ANC presidential contender Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma stirred yet another social media row, this time regarding whether she could differentiate her principals from her principles.
16. We must protect and preserve the ANC and its values and principals as it is the only thing we have as black people in this country
— Dr Dlamini Zuma (@DlaminiZuma) July 15, 2017
In a tweet posted at about 15.25pm on Saturday, July 15, Dr Dlamini-Zuma wrote: “We must protect and preserve the ANC and its values and principals as it is the only thing we have as black people in this country.”
She was told perhaps she misspelled principles because she did not have any.
Whereas other users overlooked the typo, they wondered if the president had any values.
The values that President Zuma is lacking? He violated the constitution and he continues to do so by being the adult puppet of the Guptas

And it went downhill from there for the former AU commissioner, currently campaigning around the country to garner votes ahead of the ANC elective conference in December.
The only reason you want the ANC protected and preserved is so you and your band of thieves can continue to steal from us.

She was clearly not having a good day in the Twittersphere.
What values ? What principles ? Pledge your allegiance to a corrupt, immoral party says the patronising ex wife of the #1 thief in SA.

She was reminded if principles were all black people had, then there was no point.
