I wonder if the ANC will now take a page out of Zanu-PF in Zimbabwe’s book and get rid of the rot that has not only been destroying their own movement, but the fortunes of the nation as well.
And I agree, that President Zuma is not the only corrupt individual in government on all levels, but he is the head and therefore he enables corruption during his tenure.
In church circle’s we loosely quote a Biblical principle that the “anointing always flows from the top down.” This means that if the team consistently performs badly there has to be a problem with the head, and not just the coach, but the managing bodies and executive officials who interfere as well.
And we obviously cannot ask our military to do what Zimbabwe’s military has done – I honestly do not believe that we have the same restraint that Zimbabwe’s military and their people have shown since the military moved into Harare.
But the “sane” in the ANC need to take their stand now, during this season, culminating at the ANC elective conference. They have to unseat Jacob Zuma as party president and the incumbent leadership should recall him as President of SA immediately thereafter.
Removing Jacob Zuma as president of the Republic is priority now for the future hopes of South Africa.
I think that I’d be safe to say that this is the national sentiment, and that it would be in the interest of the public and the poor in our nation for the man to relinquish the highest office of the land.
The call for Zuma to step down is not a campaign of “White Monopoly Capital” – it is the call of South Africans, including myself.
Let Jacob Zuma step down and let him face the consequences of his corrupt actions as president, and before, in a court of law.
I pray for the salvation of his soul, but I also pray for him to be removed from office. As a man, he needs Jesus, but as our president he needs to step down.
Perhaps, like the poet, if the ANC does not act now, they will one day look back at the road not taken and regret the season when they had lost their party and the country, simply because there were no heroes left in their liberation movement.
