Nkandla shows Zuma's moral de­gen­er­a­tion

Sunday World - - Opinion -

THE Nkandla cor­rup­tion tar­nishes the im­age of our coun­try and of black people, Africans in par­tic­u­lar.

Luthuli House and those eye­ing lu­cra­tive de­ploy­ments af­ter the elec­tions will try to down­play this scan­dalous re­port, but op­po­si­tion par­ties and civil so­ci­ety should high­light it, with a spe­cific call to young people, work­ers and the poor to re­ject any at­tack on Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor Thuli Madon­sela.

Re­li­gious bod­ies must be en­cour­aged not to en­dorse Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma be­cause the day­light rob­bery of state cof­fers shows moral de­gen­er­a­tion.

Zuma does not de­serve to lead the ANC list.

He must apol­o­gise for this bla­tant abuse of of­fice and ask his fi­nan­cial back­ers and his rich rel­a­tives to pay back the state funds he looted.

Let s picket, demon­strate and march against Zuma as a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. Zonke Ly­dia Mav­im­bela Ham­man­skraal
