CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — South African police are investigating if former President Jacob Zuma’s new political party forged supporters’ signatures to register for national elections next month. The MK Party has been embroiled in legal cases over whether it and Zuma are eligible to contest the May 29 elections. It could be the most pivotal vote in South Africa in the last 30 years. Zuma rocked South African politics when he joined the MK Party as its de facto leader and said he would be campaigning against the African National Congress he once led. The ANC forced Zuma to step down as president in 2018 over corruption allegations.
