No new jet for Zuma

CityPress - - Voices -

Joyce Dikotsi Free State Let Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma use the Fal­con 900. It has been ser­viced. If the pres­i­dent can’t stand Inkwasi’s dust, what about us stay­ing in dusty streets day in and day out? In­stead of a new jet, let that money be al­lo­cated to cre­ate jobs. That R4 bil­lion can be used to give hope to other peo­ple. There is in­sta­bil­ity at our uni­ver­si­ties, yet the pres­i­dent wants the jet. There is no logic in that. Buy­ing the jet is go­ing to re­sus­ci­tate the Nkandla is­sue and Par­lia­ment will be­come dis­rup­tive. Is that what he en­joys? S Khu­malo Gaut­eng I be­lieve a plane’s life span is about up to 40 years. If Inkwazi needs “re­pairs”, then so be it. We can’t buy a new plane ev­ery time Zuma sulks. First World coun­tries don’t even do this. Pius Litl­hokoa North West No pres­i­den­tial jet. Let the pres­i­dent ad­dress the coun­try’s prob­lems and stop rip­ping the econ­omy apart. Does our pres­i­dent have a brain be­tween his ears? Jen Hal­lowes KwaZulu-Na­tal An es­ti­mate should be done on how much Zuma costs the coun­try and mea­sured against what value he adds. I am pos­i­tive even the most faith­ful sup­porter would say “no jet” and un­der­stand that the coun­try would be much bet­ter off with­out Zuma.

Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma
