There are series of petitions against the incumbent president, bordering on activities he was involved in before he became the president of the republic.
Immediately after Nhlanhla Nene was replaced with Des van Rooyen, Johann Rupert met with Cyril Ramaphosa and Trevor Manuel and his wife Maria Ramos to discuss the removal of newly appointed Minister of Finance, Des van Rooyen.
The follow up of this meeting to was a meeting that took place on the night of the 13 December 2015. The following high ranking officials and bankers of white monopoly capital (multinational corporations included) met with the ANC Top 6 in seeking the removal of Des van Rooyen:
1. Barclays Africa Group Chief Executive Officer, Maria Ramos; 2. Goldman Sachs’ South Africa head, Colin Coleman; 3. Investec Bank’s global CEO, Stephen Koseff; 4. Imperial Holdings’ CEO, Mark Lamberti; 5. Sanlam CEO, Ian Kirk; 6. Business Leadership South Africa chairperson Bobby Godsell; 7. Toyota Europe CEO, Johan van Zyl and 8. First Rand CEO, Johan Burger;
Interestingly, these meetings were contravention of Section 4 of the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Activities Act, 2004 on the part of these leaders of white capital because they were actively seeking to influence state decisions as WHO to be appointed into a cabinet portfolio and that is CORRUPTION. No one cared though.
