Will Zuma resign after mass protests?
Nontsasa Ntuli Eastern Cape With the protests continuing indefinitely, President Jacob Zuma is sure to bow out, so every clearheaded and straight-minded citizen must be part of the protests. I was overwhelmed when I read that they are also being held overseas. Messian Mashile Mpumalanga Zuma is stubborn. He won’t resign. Like Mugabe, his capturers won’t allow him to leave. His whole Cabinet and ANC national executive committee (NEC) are of the same ilk. Carol Eastern Cape What’s the point of all the “get rid of Zuma hype”? He is shameless, morally moribund, and the NEC and national working committee are cowards, running scared of all the dirt this dirty man has on them. It’s disgraceful, but so what? There are too many brainwashed people in this dying, once brilliant democracy. Kgasago Limpopo I don’t see Zuma resigning because of his stubborn attitude and hatred for being corrected. Thiru KwaZulu-Natal I don’t think we have a problem with the ANC, we have problems with a corrupt president and key individuals that have been appointed to perpetrate further looting of South Africa’s resources. I believe citizens are worried about the unholy alliance with the Guptas. We have state-owned enterprises facing bankruptcy, ministers that are colluding for contracts, Guptas having armoured vehicles that are only allowed for state use... Run the country to uplift the poor, educate our children and protect our girls from pregnancy. Make ministers accountable and implement lifestyle audits. Lastly, Zuma, please do the right thing and help this country go forward. Please go with grace. Simon Motha Mpumalanga I was disappointed by the ANC Youth League. Despite the fact that they are unemployed, they defend Zuma. They only get ANC T-shirts and booze from a man who ruined the economy and prevents them from getting jobs. The thief has been in power for eight years. He didn’t think about radical economic transformation, but because he is starting to lose power, he comes up with a strategy to get Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma into power come 2019. Xolani Western Cape Zuma is so stubborn. The only way he and his ANC criminals will listen is when we shut down the streets like the class of 1976. The entire NEC is captured and corrupt. They only care about their stomachs. B Sokhulu via SMS Zuma will not bow out under the pressure of mass mobilisation because he can’t realise what is right and what is wrong owing to his level of education. He is being supported by the KwaZulu-Natal ANC Youth League, which uses tribalism to threaten three of the top six because they realise that their leader has many scandals aimed at destroying the economy of the country. Puleng Gauteng The problem is not Zuma. It is the ANC. If indeed the people of South Africa are concerned, they should support protests and ultimately vote the ANC out come 2019. If they don’t, Zuma will continue to steal. Period. Andrew Gie Western Cape Duduzane Zuma cannot say that he is just like any other South African as he has benefited considerably from his father’s empire. However, I think he can be persuaded to break ties with the Guptas. Zet Eastern Cape We like the ANC, but now our senior leaders whom we elected are self-centred and thinking only of themselves. It’s all confirmed by the actions of our president. He cares only about the mandate of the Guptas, not that of the country and the ANC. Jane Ilunga Eastern Cape The ANC can’t act against Zuma. It is too compromised, corrupt and leaderless. The ANC is finished. It has finally and irrevocably turned against the people of South Africa. The ANC will lose the elections in the near future and it only has itself to blame. Voetsek, ANC.
