Party will rule until Jesus comes, President says again

Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma has repeated his mantra that the ANC will rule until Jesus Christ returns
Zuma - along with David Makhura, Nomvula Mokonyane, Thoko Didiza, Fikile Mbalula, Mapiti Matsena and Kgosientso Ramokgopa - spent Tuesday in the north of Tshwane conducting a door-to-door election roadshow and engaging with party supporters.
Zuma said that people needed to accept that the ANC would rule until Jesus Christ came back.
"I hear people complaining when we say the ANC will rule fully until Jesus comes back but we have been blessed. Pastors have prayed for us," he said.
He also took a swipe at other political parties and said their leaders never spoke about their own parties, but were more interested in talking about the ANC.
"There is a young man, everytime he opens his mouth, he says ANC. When are we going to hear about your party?"
Zuma admitted that the ANC had it's challenges, but was quick to point out that they dealt with them head on.
"There is no problem that we don't deal with because we are a people's organisation," he said.
