President Jacob Zuma, in an interview on ANN7's Straight Talk programme, says he is confident that the tripartite alliance will not collapse.

Although there has been no discussion about working with the EFF, Zuma says anything is a possibility.

He has also dismissed out of hand claims that he is corrupt, saying that he has fought corruption.

Zuma also rejected that the state is captured, challenging those claiming this that they should name those involved.
