Zu­ma must fa­ce the mu­sic

George Herald - - NEWS - My­ron Ra­bi­no­witz

Mo­re than 600 people sig­ned a pe­ti­ti­on ad­dres­sed to S­haun A­bra­hams, national di­rec­tor of the National Pro­se­cu­ting Aut­ho­ri­ty (NPA), at the E­den Me­an­der Li­fe­sty­le Cen­t­re on Sa­tur­day 9 Sep­tem­ber.

The U­ni­ted De­mo­cra­tic Front (UDF) ve­te­rans' pe­ti­ti­on de­mands that A­bra­hams drop the ap­pe­al against the rein­sta­te­ment of 783 fraud and cor­rup­ti­on char­ges against P­re­si­dent Ja­cob Zu­ma, and im­me­di­a­te­ly re­su­me the ca­se against Zu­ma. They al­so de­mand that all ca­ses of cor­rup­ti­on be in­ves­ti­ga­ted and that the­se al­le­ga­ti­ons be broug­ht to court.

Jen­ny Ma­nu­el, who i­ni­ti­a­ted the dri­ve to sup­port the UDF ve­te­rans' pe­ti­ti­on in Ge­or­ge, said, "Ni­ne­ty per­cent of the people ap­pro­a­ched sig­ned the pe­ti­ti­on im­me­di­a­te­ly. People from all walks of li­fe re­spon­ded po­si­ti­ve­ly, in­clu­ding con­structi­on wor­kers with hard hats who ca­me to shop for their lunch. We will be put­ting up our ta­ble at va­ri­ous pla­ces in Ge­or­ge and Wil­der­ness to con­ti­nue col­lecting sig­na­tu­res. Su­re­ly the NPA will ha­ve to ta­ke no­te of the mil­li­ons of sig­na­tu­res that land on their desk."
