She says they're calling on the provincial structure to join their call. 

"We strongly believe that uBaba Msholozi must be released from jail. He's very old and he doesn't deserve to be in jail. 

"That's what we are saying, we are saying #ZumaMustBeReleased. We are coming from the branches. We are with the people on the ground. 

"The branches of ANC in eThekwini are saying baba Msholozi must be released." 

Zuma is serving a 15-month sentence at the Estcourt Correctional Centre after he defied a Constitutional Court order to appear before the State Capture Inquiry.
