Jacob Zuma, former President of South Africa, has expressed his pain of seeing educated black youth being “instruments” of white people.

In a short clip shared by his daughter Dudu Zuma-Sambudla on her Twitter page, the former South African President, who has corruption charges hanging on him, was seen seated in front of a Jacob G Zuma Foundation banner and clad in a golf-shirt with his foundation’s emblem. 

Mr Zuma, who spoke in English and Zulu, told Wits Young Communist League leaders at his home in Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal: “But at the centre of this is an African child … absolutely problematic for me is to see Africans who are doctors and professors think like white people. That’s a problem I have … not just having the mindset of white people but to be instruments of white people …That just kills me.”

The clip is a snippet of a longer interview which Madam Zuma-Sambudla said would be released on South Africa Youth Day on Tuesday.
