ZUMA ALLOWED ROT
THE ANCYL is behaving like the hooligans who disrupted Thabo Mbeki when he addressed mourners at the funeral of Moses Mabhida.
This hooliganism is now embarrassing President Jacob Zuma. Is this why Mathew Phosa said Mangaung will make Polokwane look like a picnic?
When Zuma was desperate to avoid prosecution he adopted tactics alien to the ANC. Never in the history of the ANC did people sing songs in support of a deputy president when there was a sitting president.
The climax of this hooliganism was seen at the Polokwane conference. Factions traded insults, sang different songs simultaneously, causing chaos. The theme of Zuma s lecture
’ was about manners. Why did Zuma allow the suspension of manners between 2005 and directed at Zuma by a youth section that supported him to dethrone Mbeki.
Zuma has to take the blame for the ANCYL s behaviour
’ because his supporters supported hooliganism. To root this out, he must ask ANC general secretary Gwede Mantashe to lay charges against those who also heckled Mbeki.
The argument that there is selective justice has weight. Corruption is everywhere. It s not
’ only Julius Malema who is enriching himself but also the family of our president and those close to him like the Guptas, Sandile Zungu and Robert Gumede.
