'Zuma relaxes while SA burns'

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma was relaxing in Nkandla while the country burns, DA Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane said on Sunday.

Maimane was addressing around 50 people outside the Lefika primary school in Sebokeng, south of Johannesburg.

"People are dying during protests and the president or his senior staff fail to address their people. This is not the ANC of Nelson Mandela."

Maimane was expected to visit the family of Lerata Rabolila, who was shot and killed during the violent protests in Boiketlong.

He said he would mobilise the community of Boiketlong to register to vote.

"We want to show the current government that the pen is mightier than the bullet," said Maimane.
