Another ANC stalwart has launched a devastating attack on president Zuma and his entire cabinet.

The stalwart said that President Jacob Zuma and all the public representatives and executive appointees must take joint and collective responsibility for not only the destruction of the economy‚ but also for raping the poor.

Mathews Phosa made this remrk while d elivering the keynote address at the OR Tambo Memorial Lecture in East London on Sunday.

The bigwig said South Africa was in dire need of dramatic political and economic changes.

He highlighted that the country needs a new political leadership‚ changes in our economic policy‚ urgent changes to our education system‚ and consensus between all stakeholders on how we revive the rainbow spirit in our nation.

Only the Judiciary is functioning out of the three centres of constitutional power.

He proposed that the entire Cabinet‚ the National Assembly and the ANC NEC resign and allow the voters to choose the leaders they wanted.

He added that now‚ in the ANC elective conference year‚ some in the Presidency and Cabinet had belatedly found their voices.

Phosa added that he wished to say as little as possible about his party’s representatives in Parliament. “Future generations will look at your pronouncements and decisions and find them to border on the treasonous‚” he admonished.
