Zuma must go – not Riah Phiyega

2013-09-15 14:00

Calls for President Jacob Zuma to remove national police commissioner General Riah Phiyega lack logic.

The person who must quit is the president. He deployed Phiyega after he realised former crime boss Richard Mdluli was in conflict with her predecessor, Bheki Cele.

The evidence in front of us is now clear. It reveals why Zuma deployed his loyalists – Jeff Radebe, Siyabonga Cwele, S’bu Ndebele, Cele, Menzi Simelane – in the security cluster.

Zuma’s continuous flops should be a wake-up call for all of us.

Whatever Zuma touches falls apart. Just a few examples include the moral-regeneration movement, the Aids Council, parastatals, the security cluster and the African agenda.
