PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma says apartheid legacy made South Africans sick.

PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma on Monday said the apartheid legacy had made South Africans sick. Addressing thousands of people at a Freedom Day celebration at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, Zuma slammed South Africans for demanding services by burning and destroying the services they already have.

"That is the example of the apartheid nature that is left with us," Zuma said.
The same anger existed among some of the leaders the nation had elected and sent to Parliament.

"Even in Parliament, we need to be cured. We are sick," he said.

He took a swipe at unruly MPs whom he said intentionally defied the rules and laws of the House, refusing to be called to order by the National Speaker.

He said others failed to understand the painful past the country had come from and instead proudly wore miners and domestic workers' uniforms to Parliament.

He was referring to MPs from the Economic Freedom Fighters who wore red overalls and aprons to Parliament.

The crowds cheered loudly and shouted in approval as he spoke. Newzimbabwe
