The ANC, the ANCYL and the President are rapidly striving to turn South Africa into a full blown, “Banana Republic.”
President Jacob Zuma does not and has not shown any leadership since manipulating himself into office through extremely devious means.
Mugabe happily goes about ignoring his obligations in, in The Global Political Agreement, as his people continue to suffer, because the ANCYL support Mugabe and Zanu-PF.
It has become abundantly clear that Zuma is clearly terrified of the monster he has created in the sexist, racist, hatemongering Malema. He must have the intellect to understand where South Africa will end up if this young bigot is not stopped now.
He has never, so far, done the right thing if it means disciplining any errant ANC cadre. Sicelo Shiceka has been on full pay for sitting at home doing nothing for most of this year when he should have been fired by the President months ago.
Bheki Cele and Gwen Maklanga-Nkabinde have been found guilty months ago, of defeating the ends of justice by the Public Protector, but to date Zuma has done nothing.
The excuses that are constantly coming from the Office of the President are pathetic but it seems that as long as he can remain where he is for a while longer, he cares little for the consequences to the country.
He would have accumulated enough wealth to live above the chaos by then.
Now to everyone’s surprise he has ordered a probe into the arms deal. Suddenly and for once it seemed that perhaps he was going to exhibit some degree of leadership. Wrong, I perceive.
Immediately the ANC declare that the President will not be called to take the stand because he would not have called for the probe if he had anything to hide.
Well if he has nothing to hide why would he not take the stand? Surely he needs to answer why he signed the order in 2001 stopping SCOPA from investigating the Arms Deal. But the question everyone is asking is, why would he call for this probe now?
Back into the picture comes the rogue factor, Malema. Former ANC MP Andrew Feinstein believe that one of the reasons for this call is likely to be because Malema is threatening to expose what he knows if the disciplinary hearing find him guilty.
Well if this is the case has the President got what it takes to make a correct decision for once? We wait with baited breath because South Africa is now at a crossroads. Woe and betide the country if this lunatic is once again not brought to book.
