Zuma plays his cards
S Mosia Free State The guilty will at all times try their best to manoeuvre out of trouble like jackals, but there are undeniable facts for all pro- or anti-Zuma to see. The world is agape and the honourable aristocrats pretend there’s nothing wrong. Wake up South Africa. We are perishing. Raletsatsi Limpopo I think the opposition should not worry themselves about the secret ballot for now. It would not work, as on the contrary, the removal of Jacob Zuma now will boost the ruling party in 2019. Allow the party to tighten the noose around their necks in the real election. They are going to be choked to death by the results of the secret ballot in 2019. Give the ruling party a long rope to hang itself. Mncedi Kupi Gauteng Zuma will always credit others for ensuring his political survival. He is a professional liar who doesn’t care about anyone but himself. Simon Nugridge Eastern Cape Great speech had it been given by Cyril Ramaphosa. In Zuma’s mouth it’s a joke. The elders want a dedicated conference to fix things. It’s like they are children, saying to each other: “Give them a chance then they will shut up.” The elders want a heavily focused talk, not a joke session squeezed in as an afterthought. The ANC will split again and South Africa will only have coalition politics. One more split and the ANC will lose its majority. Veterans gave their lives for the ANC. It’s heartbreaking and sad that Zuma was elected. But only the ANC is to blame. No white monopoly capital voted him into power. Elvis North West Zuma is a low-class rubbish prepared to destroy the country for his selfish narrow interests. I’ve been an ANC member for more than 30 years and I have never seen a mess like the problem the ANC is currently facing. It is not the opposition or white people. It is the slapgatheid of the party’s national executive committee, which has failed to stand up to this bully.
