WE MUST STAND TOGETHER TO RID COUNTRY OF ANTIQUATED, CORRUPT ANC
WHENEVER the rumour mill kicks into high gear about possible cabinet reshuffles, people are accustomed to the nature of the conditions being laid down by Jacob Zuma to impose his devious intentions.
The recent rumours and speculations follow a similar and established pattern, and cannot be ignored.
It is difficult to ignore or dismiss these rumours because, more often than not, they ultimately become reality, despite initial denials or obfuscation by both the ANC and the Presidency.
Jacob Zuma is known to be a predictable, cunning and scheming incumbent of the office of the state president.
Whenever he is on a mission to misuse or abuse his powers to effect changes in his already bloated cabinet, he does so not in the interests of good governance, to further grow our economy or reduce the number (55%) of people who daily suffer the ravages of poverty.
It is all about narrow, self-serving interests to consolidate factional power.
They no longer care about the plight of the people.
In fact, we are reliably informed that the national cabinet has long ceased to function optimally or as a cohesive collective.
Daily indications abound of a government that is in free fall.
Anarchy has been let loose in our nation by weak leadership.
Jacob Zuma and his antiquated ANC still do not grasp the huge damage being inflicted on our nation by their shenanigans. The domestic and foreign investor community continues to lack the confidence to invest because of the current political uncertainty.
The long, drawn-out and bruising plot to remove Pravin Gordhan as finance minister earlier this year resulted in serious damage to our economy, and the latest scheming will no doubt cause further damage when it is already ailing.
Since its for mation, Cope has consistently pointed out that Jacob Zuma was never a fit and proper incumbent as president.
The tyranny of the majority sitting on ANC benches in Parliament, including the very same potential victims of Zuma’s scheming, have continued to protect him.
We call on all the citizens of our country to continue to mobilise, organise and educate the masses of our people to ready themselves and go out in their large numbers to vote the antiquated ANC out of power in the next election.
Our resolve to free our nation from poverty, unemployment and inequality caused by the antiquated ANC shall never diminish.
