Well, it seems the opposition parties are still waiting for Jesus to come following the ANC’s loss of a few key metros in the 2016 local government elections. President Jacob Zuma declared over the years that the ruling party would stay in power until Jesus returned. It’s not clear if the Christian Messiah would return in flesh or in spirit, but from what seems to be the public’s interpretation of Zuma prophecy of the second coming, Jesus is meant to return in the flesh, and some even suggested he’d touch down in South Africa at OR Tambo International Airport.
EFF national chairperson Dali Mpofu now says he’s seen the Messiah’s schedule and Jesus’ itinerary will start in Port Elizabeth, moving on to Mogale City, Tshwane, Johannesburg, Rustenburg, Metsimaholo, Thabazimbi and Vryheid.
If you’re wondering why, it’s because the ANC lost all those metros to opposition parties, which went into coalition against what they have called the arrogant ANC.

ANC die-had man Tito Mboweni has said these coalitions will not last, and the ANC will rise to power again. The former Reserve Bank governor, who (actually flatteringly) called the EFF a party of squatter camps and “some intellectuals”, said the excitement against the ANC’s loss would be “short-lived”.
“And that hastily cobbled up alliance of non-majoritarians will crumble before dawn. And as the sun rises, our movement will regain strength,” said Mboweni.
“There are many who are gloating and bragging against the ANC. That will be short-lived. We shall return, humble, strategic and stronger.”
