Desmond Tutu urges ANC not to choose Zuma

15th December,2007

The former Archbishop of Cape Town, Desmond Tutu, has urged South Africa's governing African National Congress not to choose Jacob Zuma as its new leader.
He said most people would be ashamed to have Mr Zuma as leader and that South Africa deserved someone better.

Mr Zuma, ex-vice president of South Africa, said Church leaders should pray for people and not condemn them.

Acquitted of rape last year, Mr Zuma is vying for the ANC leadership with South African President Thabo Mbeki.

One of the two ANC veterans will prevail during a five-day congress that starts on Sunday in Polokwane, Limpopo.


If he wins, Mr Zuma would be in line to become ANC candidate for president of South Africa in 2009 elections.

But Archbishop Tutu, one of South Africa's most powerful moral voices, urged the ANC to reject Mr Zuma, saying: "They should please not choose someone of whom most of us would be ashamed. Our country deserves better."
