Dlamini-Zuma for president?
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.
