Was Thuli right to go pub­lic?

Moloko via SMS Brian Molefe is guilty. He would not have re­signed if he did noth­ing wrong. By his res­ig­na­tion he had hoped that the pop­u­lace would turn against the for­mer pub­lic pro­tec­tor. We can­not be fooled any more. Those crocodile tears only served to ridicule him. This is what hap­pens when peo­ple get greedy. Manus KwaZulu-Natal He found him­self in trou­bled wa­ters by back­ing up and be­ing backed by the un­touch­ables of our so-called gov­ern­ment and Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma. He is only one culprit of many to come. Money talks, power and greed­i­ness are the down­fall of many. Molefe Mathe­bula Gaut­eng Brian Molefe is a liar. If he is as in­no­cent as he claims, let him show us ex­actly where this Sax­on­wold she­been is. The only con­clu­sion we can draw is that it is lo­cated right in the heart of the Gupta com­pound. God­frey Ndhlovu North West I don’t be­lieve that his res­ig­na­tion from Eskom is not an ad­mis­sion of guilt. He is just try­ing to save face. Some­times, jump­ing be­fore you are pushed can work for you in your fu­ture en­deav­ours. He knows that if he waits un­til he is asked to re­sign, it will put a black spot on his CV. Leav­ing this way gives him the power to tell his fu­ture em­ployer that ev­ery­thing else is just ru­mours. It can’t be proven he lost his job. He is try­ing to save face. Ben Mokoena Mpumalanga Brian had threat­ened to take the Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor’s re­port for re­view. He did not do so be­cause he knows he is guilty. Let him stop tak­ing us for fools. Qaqamba Gaut­eng I think Molefe got caught up with fol­low­ing in­struc­tions from the pres­i­dent. His down­fall was the love of power. Now he is the scape­goat for Zuma. He did not learn from Sch­abir Shaik and as­so­ciates. Jeremy Pea­cock Western Cape Guilty as sin. But it’s a pity, be­cause he does a good job. Jack­son Mafa Lim­popo Me­thinks this Molefe was/is a prin­ci­pled guy who in­ad­ver­tently found him­self swim­ming with the pi­ra­nhas, ex­e­cut­ing the or­ders of the No. 1 pup­pet con­trolled from Sax­on­wold. I sin­cerely sym­pa­thise with Brian. SS Ra­mak­gasha Gaut­eng She was right to go pub­lic. As the for­mer pub­lic pro­tec­tor, she has no other plat­form to air her views/re­sponse other than go­ing pub­lic. As much as the pres­i­dency went pub­lic, so must be the re­sponse. The pres­i­dent wanted to de­lay the re­lease by court in­ter­dicts and failed. Now he de­vi­ates by at­tack­ing in­di­vid­u­als. The pres­i­dency must re­spond to the con­tents of the re­port, noth­ing else. Leonard Sek­wati Gaut­eng Yes, she was right be­cause our pres­i­dent is ly­ing a lot. You can’t get the truth from him. So I say, well done Thuli, you were a true pub­lic pro­tec­tor, not an ANC pro­tec­tor. Thank you and thank you again. Moeketsi Gaut­eng She had no choice but to go pub­lic so that peo­ple could de­cide who was ly­ing, be­tween her and the dis­graced pres­i­dent who has been ly­ing to the na­tion since be­fore he be­came pres­i­dent. We all know that he lied about Kh­wezi, Nkandla and many more, so how can a sane per­son like Sis Thuli be ex­pected to trust a ha­bit­ual lier like Zuma? Non­ceba Gin­cana Gaut­eng Thuli was right to make the in­ter­view pub­lic. She was ex­pos­ing the patho­log­i­cal liar Ja­cob Zuma who de­nies ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing not know­ing about se­cu­rity up­grades at his home. Now we know Zuma was ly­ing about the in­ter­view. Zin­dela KwaZulu-Natal Yes, Thuli was 100% right. Con­sider that she was ex­it­ing this of­fice and the fact that JZ had al­ready lied, say­ing he wasn’t given an op­por­tu­nity to re­spond. This tran­script clearly proves JZ lied and also vin­di­cates Thuli. Let us not miss the point here: Zuma is beyond an em­bar­rass­ment. Thabiso Gaut­eng She was right, ubuntu does not al­low a child to say an el­derly per­son is ly­ing. We must not for­get, Bu­sisiwe Mkhwe­bane was al­ways a pup­pet of Zuma and the ar­ro­gant ANC and Gwede Man­tashe. South Africa, wait for 2019 and see the ANC go down. Mo­golodi Gaarekwe North West I see noth­ing wrong with what Thuli did. It is within our right to know what the pres­i­dent said to our beloved for­mer pub­lic pro­tec­tor. F Ng­cobo Gaut­eng It was in­ap­pro­pri­ate for her to have made the in­ter­view pub­lic be­cause that would be tak­ing it per­son­ally since she is no longer the Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor. For now she is free to deal with DA mat­ters only. Willy North West There’s noth­ing Thuli Madon­sela has done wrong. She was right to ex­pose Zuma. Noth­ing should be hid­den. We’ve got the right to know, as cit­i­zens of this coun­try, as this af­fects our fu­ture. Zuma showed us he’s not in­ter­ested in this coun­try, he’s only look­ing af­ter him­self and his fam­ily. He does not care about the poor­est of this coun­try. He should go to hell. Lefu Sam­son Radebe Gaut­eng Mam Thuli was right to make the in­ter­view pub­lic, be­cause Zuma and the ANC are in de­nial of the truth. Tumelo Le­mao Mpumalanga Yes in­deed, Thuli Madon­sela was right to re­lease the au­dio in­ter­view. The pres­i­dency went pub­lic that Thuli did not con­sult him be­fore releasing the state cap­ture re­port. That made the whole com­mu­nity see Thuli as some­one who had an agenda against the pres­i­dent. The only way for her to come clean is to run to the same me­dia to state her side of the story. Any­way, that in­ter­view, as well as the re­port, is of pub­lic in­ter­est, un­less there’s some­thing the pub­lic is not sup­posed to see or hear.
