“My email was hacked to block Zuma at IEC” says Nkosi

A man who reportedly requested the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to prevent former president Jacob Zuma from participating in the upcoming general elections has refuted the claim, stating that his email was hacked.

The uMkhonto Wesizwe Party (MK) is contesting the IEC’s decision to disqualify Zuma from the election through an appeal to the Electoral Court.

Bethuell Terrence Nkosi, the third party mentioned in MK’s appeal, informed the party’s attorneys that he did not submit any objection to the IEC.

MK spokesperson Nhlamulo Ndlela disclosed this information to Scrolla.Africa after the party lodged its appeal with the Electoral Court.

“Our lawyers contacted two people who filed the objection with the IEC. The first one is Dr Maroba Jimmy Matsapola of the Western Cape Gambling Board and a guy called Bethwell Nkosi,” said Ndlela.

“Matsapola agreed with our lawyers that he filed the objection. Nkosi told our lawyers that he knew nothing about the objection to the IEC. He said his emails were hacked.”

MK contends that the IEC’s objection to Zuma was unfaue because the party was not notified prior to the decision’s announcement.

Additionally, MK claims that the notification was sent to the incorrect email address, as the IEC used info@mkparty.co.za instead of the correct address, info@mkparty.org.za.
