The embattled President Jacob Zuma is a dishonourable and disgraceful leader and the ANC under him would not be able to fulfil its mission.
Those are the words of brave ANC MP Makhosi Khoza describing the President of the ruling ANC and the country.
Dr Khoza added that President Zuma had also lost legitimacy, credibility and integrity.
”Zuma was promoting tribalism and was yearning to be a king, which his Nkandla homestead reflected as a palace.”
Recognised citizens such as former finance minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy, Mcebisi Jonas, SACP’s newly elected first deputy general-secretary Solly Mapaila, unionist Zwelinzima Vavi and business leader Bonang Mohale attended the conference where Khoza was speaking.
“Our president, when his citizens march peacefully to plead with him to step down in order to give South Africa a breathing space, he calls them racists and agents of white monopoly capital.
“This is the president; when black intellectuals express their views, he sarcastically calls them clever blacks.” she said.
Reverend Ray McCauley encouraged South Africans to form strong alliances against state capture.
“The values that Nelson Mandela stood for and the fact he could not be bought while in prison stood as an example to all of us. Today we need to make those
values stronger and form alliances,” McCauley said.
“I have the sense right now that we are going to get over this. This is country is resilient.”
