Zuma should be arrested
JACOB Zuma’s influence peddling is laid bare for all to see, it’s an open affair because it’s out there in our faces, whether we like it or not.
Captured government officials are towing the line because if they don’t, they’ll end up being dismissed like Pravin Gordhan, Mcebisi Jonas, Derek Hanekom, Ngoako Ramatlhodi and others.
Zuma’s strategy is to use his immediate and extended family members, together with his corrupt cronies, to loot our state coffers with impunity. That’s why people occupying key parastatals and government positions were strategically captured by the Guptas.
This is conflict of interest because he’s a politician, especially being the country’s president doing business with the state.
ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe is using the same strategy, by fronting with his wife as a proxy to get tenders at state-owned enterprises.
The agenda and the menu on the table is nothing else but an accelerated looting spree called “radical economic transformation”.
The companies doing business with the state are special-purpose vehicles used for embezzlement, money laundering, tax evasion, fraud, theft, racketeering, facilitating offshore money transfers and looting our state-owned companies and government’s (national, provincial and municipal) coffers with impunity.
The Hawks were supposed to have investigated all the allegations and ultimately arrested Zuma, before the leaked Guptas’ electronic mails.
This is corruption according to the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act. This means that the National Prosecuting Authority should have arrested him, formulated charges against him and prosecuted him a long time ago for influence peddling and abuse of his entrusted power. Sebokeng
