Dlamini-Zuma for pres­i­dent?

CityPress - - Voices -

Machelani Hla­bathi Gaut­eng Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is not pres­i­den­tial ma­te­rial: she is old, weak, tired, not in­tel­li­gent, cap­tured and des­per­ate to pro­tect her for­mer hubby. She needs to re­tire, stop be­ing self­ish and sup­port the most qual­i­fied young woman to take over the pres­i­dency of the ANC and South Africa: Lindiwe Sisulu. Lethabo Gaut­eng I’m against the choice of Dlamini-Zuma as the next pres­i­dent. We have peo­ple like Naledi Pan­dor and Sisulu who can rep­re­sent us if we need to have a woman pres­i­dent. The other tribes in South Africa feel that the pres­i­dency be­longs to Zu­lus and Xhosas. It’s to­tally un­fair. Kim Price East­ern Cape Dlamini-Zuma should NOT be pres­i­dent. This would be the dis­as­ter of all dis­as­ters. Pray the good Lord pre­pares the right leader to save our na­tion. Leon Al­li­son Gaut­eng If she be­comes pres­i­dent it will be a con­tin­u­a­tion of the dis­as­ter which is the Ja­cob Zuma pres­i­dency. Ex­pect fur­ther mis­rule, cor­rup­tion and racial dis­cord be­ing fu­elled to en­rich a small po­lit­i­cal elite, the Zuma and Gupta fam­i­lies and their cronies. Only the most naive and the ben­e­fi­cia­ries deny this. Ul­ti­mately, the poor will suf­fer the most and we will be­come another African bas­ket case. The only hope for the huge chal­lenges fac­ing our coun­try is if we turn to Je­sus Christ. Shel­don Gaut­eng I think Dlamini-Zuma is mak­ing plenty of veiled racist re­marks. No good as a pres­i­dent. Batho­bele Mnonophi via SMS I am not com­fort­able with another Zuma. This is not a farm where the fa­ther is re­tir­ing and the son takes over. No. No. No. Mbu­la­heni Ne­fefe via SMS I don’t think she can lead the ANC in the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. There is a great per­cep­tion that she will pro­tect Zuma and the Gup­tas. If the ANC elects her, it will be a good recipe for los­ing power. Du­misani Nt­shangase Gaut­eng Dlamini-Zuma is the most in­tel­li­gent cadre ever de­vel­oped by the ANC, like Thabo Mbeki. I want her to be­come the next pres­i­dent. Mtembu East­ern Cape If we elect her as pres­i­dent, we are pro­tect­ing Zuma and his part­ners. That’s a dis­as­ter. What is spe­cial about Zuma? Enough is enough. Steve KwaZulu-Na­tal This dear lady was on our flight from Dur­ban to Cape Town yesterday, up front in busi­ness class and whisked away in se­cu­rity ve­hi­cles. All I could think was, “That’s with my hard-earned taxes, hope it was for some good cause.” Now I hear what it was for cam­paign­ing. Very an­gry, very dis­gusted. Please let’s do all we can to stop this rot­ten bunch ap­point­ing another dis­as­ter, another per­son with not a shred of dig­nity or hu­mil­ity. B Mor­ri­son via SMS Dlamini-Zuma has proved to be to­tally un­suit­able to lead this coun­try. She lied about a Twit­ter post­ing, she made racist com­ments about pro­test­ers and she is happy to abuse state re­sources by us­ing pres­i­den­tial se­cu­rity paid for by the tax­pay­ers of the coun­try. RS Mo­er­ane via SMS Should the ANC pur­sue the idea of Dlamini-Zuma as their next pres­i­dent, it would be a sui­ci­dal ten­dency and would be the fi­nal nail in their cof­fin. Dolly Hlong­wane Gaut­eng Dlamini-Zuma must be treated as her own per­son and not shad­owed by her ex-hus­band’s sur­name. Per­fect, per­fect coun­try pres­i­den­tial ma­te­rial. We pray for her.
