Trea­son?

Bongiqwe Magampa West­ern Cape Ja­cob Zuma’s ad­min­is­tra­tion has failed South Africa. Zuma has de­stroyed our ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, our health sys­tem, our safety and se­cu­rity sys­tem, our state re­sources and our econ­omy. We are cur­rently in “junk” sta­tus – all un­der his govern­ing. For good­ness sake, Zuma vi­o­lated the Con­sti­tu­tion and his oath of of­fice. If that is not trea­son, I don’t know what is. The fact that the ANC can’t hold him ac­count­able for his reck­less­ness or lack of up­hold­ing eth­i­cal and moral ac­tions speaks vol­umes. The ANC has failed us the peo­ple of this coun­try. If they are say­ing they are against white mo­nop­oly cap­i­tal but are pro-In­dian or even black mo­nop­oly cap­i­tal, then their un­der­stand­ing of democ­racy for all is un­der­mined. Leon Nel West­ern Cape The ar­ti­cle is much ap­pre­ci­ated. I will sup­port the ini­tia­tives ex­pressed in this ar­ti­cle and by this au­thor. We as civil so­ci­ety need to do some­thing. There is suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence for im­me­di­ate ac­tion by po­lice and the Hawks, yet noth­ing is hap­pen­ing. Clay­ton Gaut­eng Of course Zuma should be pros­e­cuted for trea­son, along with 783 other charges. The ques­tion is why have South Africans al­lowed this crim­i­nal to evade jus­tice and con­tinue his loot­ing for so long? The time for moan­ing and groan­ing is over. It’s time to grind the coun­try to a stand­still. The time for fight­ing is now. Ge­orge Ti­tus via SMS I think the pres­i­dent, his son Duduzane, Malusi Gi­gaba and all the chair­per­sons, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tors and man­agers im­pli­cated in the Gupta leaks must be tried for trea­son. Pule Gaut­eng Your ar­ti­cle “Charge Zuma with trea­son” refers. Thank God, at last some­one came up with a cred­i­ble plan to rid us from the abyss of a mafia state. Please note that we are fight­ing a to­tally un­fair bat­tle. It has been proven time and time again. The Zupta mafia are to­tally ruth­less, have no re­gard for the law and will break all rules to steal the out­comes of both the 2017 elec­tive con­fer­ence and the 2019 gen­eral elec­tion. Please help us to stop this mon­ster. I’m will­ing to do my part in the process. Maseko Noba­hambi Eastern Cape A new cor­rup­tion fight­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion must be formed, and it must in­clude rep­re­sen­ta­tives from church or­gan­i­sa­tions, work­ers’ unions, stu­dent or­gan­i­sa­tions and all po­lit­i­cal par­ties. The gov­ern­ment’s re­fusal to take nec­es­sary ac­tion, such as in­ves­ti­ga­tions and pros­e­cu­tions, will leave work­ers and pupils with no op­tion but to en­gage in stay­aways. Peo­ple like Ja­cob Zuma, Malusi Gi­gaba, Gwede Man­tashe, Baleka Mbete and oth­ers are now only con­cerned with their stom­achs, not the coun­try. This ini­tia­tive may suc­ceed if led by all con­cerned po­lit­i­cal par­ties. Even the ANC must be al­lowed to join if it is will­ing. Rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the ini­tia­tive must be equal. Rowan Ras­mussen KwaZulu-Natal This is the most im­por­tant com­ment on the state of our coun­try I have seen thus far. The proof is over­whelm­ing and the end re­sult must be pros­e­cu­tion and jail for all of those in­volved. No soft land­ing and life of lux­ury in Dubai. No Idi Amin lux­ury. Siya­mani Ntleko KwaZulu-Natal Yes! Yes! This is long over­due. The pres­i­dent, Gi­gaba, Molefe, Duduzane, Mosebenzi Zwane and the Gup­tas should be rot­ting in jail by now on trea­son charges. As for the pres­i­dent de­fy­ing his or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ethics com­mit­tee – it makes the ANC a tooth­less or­gan­i­sa­tion with no balls to de­fend its au­gust good name from those who de­spise and drag it in the mud. Ren­tia via SMS Not only an ex­cel­lent ar­ti­cle, but one that por­trays the feel­ing of mil­lions of South Africans. We’ve put our trust in a pres­i­dent to lead us to­wards a bet­ter fu­ture for all. And what has he done? Be­trayed us. This is trea­son and he should be charged. The cre­ation of a fund to fi­nance it is the sec­ond best idea of the day. Mandla Tatana Gaut­eng No costly com­mis­sion is re­quired, the ev­i­dence is read­ily avail­able. Save SA and AfriFo­rum can join forces against a com­mon en­emy – the Gupta state – and launch a ci­ti­zens’ pros­e­cu­tion.

The busi­ness sec­tor can pro­vide fi­nan­cial sup­port. Pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tors and trial lawyers can do pro bono work as their own con­tri­bu­tion to­wards lib­er­a­tion of the Repub­lic of South Africa from the Zup­tas.
