Will Zuma re­sign af­ter mass protests?

CityPress - - Voices -

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.
