Mbalula ver­sus Ntle­meza

CityPress - - Voices -

Ja­son KwaZulu-Na­tal I think Po­lice Min­is­ter Fik­ile Mbalula did the right thing by fir­ing Hawks boss Bern­ing Ntle­meza. Now, Ntle­meza is talk­ing about his im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice record. Shame. What about real, gen­uine, im­pec­ca­ble and out­stand­ing peo­ple such as Anwa Dra­mat, Shadrack Sibiya and Jo­han Booy­sen? How do you think they felt when they were forced to leave? They were hu­mil­i­ated in ev­ery way. But they still held their heads up high, un­like Ntle­meza. What a joke. You de­serve what you get. Do unto oth­ers as you would ex­pect them to do unto you. Si­mon Mali East­ern Cape If the hon­ourable Mbalula has been given all the de­tails about Ntle­meza’s case and he has been ad­vised about the whole saga and cor­rectly un­der­stands it, his de­ci­sion to fire Ntle­meza was cor­rect. Un­less there is in­for­ma­tion that has not been tabled for his pe­rusal. The ques­tions might be: Who em­ployed Ntle­meza? What are the terms and con­di­tions of his em­ploy­ment? Who is sup­posed to fire him? Chi­navasta Free State I sa­lute Mbalula on the mat­ter. It is time for po­lice man­age­ment (top, mid­dle and the power-hun­gry low­est level) to use their brains, not their pis­tol bar­rels. Re­mem­ber, this gen­eral was “pup­pe­tised” and en­gaged in par­lia­men­tary con­spir­a­cies. How­ever, ev­ery pup­pet is thrown into the trash when no longer use­ful. Kris Mood­ley KwaZulu-Na­tal Ntle­meza had been in­stru­men­tal in turn­ing the Hawks into a po­lit­i­cal pup­pet show. He went after in­no­cent peo­ple who were op­pos­ing cor­rup­tion in­stead of go­ing after the ar­chi­tects of cor­rup­tion. Or­di­nary cit­i­zens lost faith in the Hawks a long time ago. Well done, Mbalula. It’s about time we sweep out the trash. Mduduzeli Free State Fol­low­ing all the things that have been said about Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma and the Gup­tas, he needs to dis­tance him­self from them – un­less, of course, he is un­der their spell. M Di­holo North­ern Cape Is there no end to the Zuma-Gupta es­capades? Zuma doesn’t seem to un­der­stand his role as pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of South Africa. Ac­cept­ing the in­vi­ta­tion from the Gup­tas is, in my view, a di­rect dis­re­gard for South Africans. He ob­vi­ously at­tended this event in his ca­pac­ity as pres­i­dent, but what does this pri­vate event have to do with our coun­try? As a black el­der, he’s be­ing treated like a boy and he doesn’t even re­alise this. The sit­u­a­tion is pa­thetic. Marks Bak­en­berg Lim­popo Zuma should have thought of the cloud hang­ing over his ad­min­is­tra­tion. State cap­ture by the Gupta fam­ily, in par­tic­u­lar in the party Zuma is lead­ing, in­di­cates that the ANC is at risk of di­vi­sions. With what is be­ing said about the in­flu­ence that the Gupta fam­ily has on him, and with Zuma’s fam­ily ben­e­fit­ing from Gupta deals, he should have known that it was not a good idea to at­tend. The ANC must know that its dig­nity is at stake as long as in­for­ma­tion such as this is leaked to peo­ple who are sup­port­ers and not just card-car­ry­ing mem­bers of the ANC. He has an “I-don’t-care” and “there-is­noth­ing-you-can-do” at­ti­tude. Mzi Ka Gold North­ern Cape Zuma has no con­science. He can­not at­tend a party with the en­emy of the na­tion he leads. He is the most greedy man so far pro­duced by the ANC. He will go down in ANC his­tory as the one who brought the move­ment to its knees. Come 2019, there will be no ANC rule, thanks to him and his be­witched loy­al­ists.
