Mzwanele Manyi, politician and member of African Transformation Movement (ATM) has joined Former President Jacob Zuma camp as a head of communications.
According to EWN, the former media boss and government mouthpiece Mzwanele Manyi said he was approached by former President Jacob Zuma to become his spokesperson with the hope that it would balance out the discourse when it came to Zuma’s name. As he faces several protracted court battles, Zuma has recently relied mostly on statements shared through his daughter Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla’s Twitter page to communicate his side of the story.
Manyi returns to Zuma’s side in a professional capacity after he left African National Congress (ANC) in 2019 and joined the African Transformation Movement (ATM) as a head of strategy.
Manyi said Zuma needed someone with vast knowledge of how government operated.
“Now that most of his issues involve the era when he was in government and so on, I really would be among the people that should be able to set the record straight.”
