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.
