South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma has told how he used witchcraft against white people.

Speaking in his native Zulu at a pre-election rally in the country’s rural north, he told voters: “I used to practise witchcraft around here, bewitching the Boers during apartheid.”

He promised the crowd in a village in Mpumalanga province that if his African National Congress party was re-elected with more than 90 per cent of the vote, he would come back to slaughter cows in celebration.

Mr Zuma, who was a commander of the ANC’s armed wing under apartheid, also claimed his party would run South Africa “for ever”.

The ANC is predicted to win this year’s election with around 60 per cent of the vote, but is forecast to lose a great deal of popular support.
