PRETORIA - President Jacob Zuma has ways of "flushing" his opponents, AbaThembu king Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo said on Wednesday.

He spoke to journalists after handing a petition to officials of Zuma's office at the Union Buildings.

"The petition is a response to the president's orders to [former co-operative governance] minister Richard Baloyi ordering him to flush me out of kingship indiscriminately," he said.

"AbaThembu have had a meeting and formulated a response. We are simply telling him to go back to Nkandla and leave AbaThembu alone."

He said Zuma targeted and dealt mercilessly with perceived opponents.

"He flushes people like condoms. Like yesterday. He thinks he can flush kings, he flushes his ministers like condoms," said Dalindyebo.

"Unfortunately, the president has a habit of not condomising.

"We don't like people with that kind of attitude. His behaviour is a shower mentality."
