Former ANC presidential candidate Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has denied a Sunday Times report that she intends to resign as a member of Parliament.
On Sunday, an article published on the Times Live website alleges that Dlamini-Zuma told President Cyril Ramaphosa that she wanted to leave Parliament as she was tired.
The former African Union chairperson took to Twitter to call out the alleged ‘fake news’, adding that as someone who crossed borders by foot to join the arms struggle to be tired out by Parliament cannot be true.
“Dr Dlamini Zuma is full of energy and is neither resigning nor fatigued,” said a statement released on her behalf by Mandown Media.
“Dr Dlamini Zuma wishes to emphasise that she remains at the service of South Africa as a member of the South African parliament, and no fake news will dissuade her from her duties,” continued the statement.
