Should busi­ness back Zuma?

CityPress - - Voices -

Edonmi Felix Nel­spruit, Mpumalanga o one should ever be made to rally around an ob­scure de­ci­sion, even if that de­ci­sion was made by God. To try to jus­tify an in­sane de­ci­sion be­cause it was made by the pres­i­dent is the height of in­san­ity. This con­firms, in my mind, that we are be­ing led by peo­ple with ex­tremely low IQs. How else do you ex­plain their mega­lo­ma­niac be­hav­iour?

NNor­man Goldie Western Cape e, as a fam­ily, have owned large busi­nesses in South Africa, em­ploy­ing in ex­cess of 250 peo­ple per busi­ness. I went to the US to look at buy­ing a fac­tory and stayed there for a while, but de­cided to re­turn and look for busi­ness here. After watch­ing how the ANC gov­ern­ment han­dles peo­ple/busi­ness, we have de­cided it’s now time to look out­side of South Africa again. Who does Ja­cob Zuma think he is? He should change his name to Robert Mu­gabe. Does he re­alise the dam­age he has done to South Africa?

WPeter Archer Gaut­eng uma is an un­e­d­u­cated, in­com­pe­tent id­iot. He must be fired im­me­di­ately and re­placed by Cyril Ramaphosa. Nh­lanhla Nene must be reap­pointed as min­is­ter of fi­nance by Ramaphosa and Pravin Gord­han can run the Devel­op­ment Bank.

ZVusi Mtshweni KwaMh­langa, Mpumalanga he de­ci­sion didn’t af­fect busi­ness alone; it af­fected us or­di­nary peo­ple too.

TD van der Merwe Western Cape S AA, Eskom, the SABC, San­ral and PetroSA are all state-owned en­ter­prises that are in fi­nan­cial dire straits. One has to won­der which fam­ily and/or busi­ness group­ing is the large-scale ben­e­fi­ciary of huge sup­ply-side or con­sul­tant con­tracts.

Is it pos­si­ble that this cyn­i­cal ca­bal is us­ing care­fully placed pup­pets in or­gan­i­sa­tions to en­sure that only two fam­i­lies ben­e­fit from the wealth that state-owned en­ter­prises are sup­posed to cre­ate for cit­i­zens at large?

Where are the ex-lead­ers of the UDF who once brought an­other morally cor­rupt gov­ern­ment to its knees? Why don’t you speak up? All the peo­ple of South Africa de­serve bet­ter than to be ruled by a neo­colo­nial­ist, for­eign busi­ness dy­nasty and its manser­vant. Daniel Western Cape ear Mr Manuel, I think that you would feel more com­fort­able in the DA be­cause there are no hid­den agen­das, nepo­tism or back-stab­bing. You can trust the lead­ers of the DA to gov­ern the Western Cape and its con­stituen­cies in other prov­inces. The DA pri­ori­tises the in­ter­ests of its vot­ers. You are most wel­come in the DA, Trevor.

DA van Heer­den Port El­iz­a­beth, Eastern Cape nder no cir­cum­stances. Busi­nesses recog­nise poor de­ci­sions and should not sup­port them or the de­ci­sion maker. We are a democ­racy that should hold peo­ple ac­count­able.

UVic Hugo Gaut­eng usi­ness can­not rally be­hind the de­ci­sions of a pres­i­dent when it is patently clear that such de­ci­sions are meant to en­trench the cor­rupt deal­ings of the pres­i­dent. The rul­ing party is duty-bound to fire this pres­i­dent. Or is it party to such de­vi­ous­ness?

BJohn Gaut­eng usi­ness should not rally around the de­ci­sions of a pres­i­dent who is hell­bent on steal­ing the coun­try.

BDerek Thom­son KwaZulu-Natal o sup­port from busi­ness should be given to such a reck­less and self-serv­ing pres­i­den­tial de­ci­sion.
