Nepotism, a presidential invitation!

15 January 2013, 11:40

“We're not forcing people... you can support and be a supporter, but if you go beyond that and become a member, [and] if you're a businessman, your business will multiply!  Everything you touch will multiply. I've always said that a wise businessperson will support the ANC... because supporting the ANC means you're investing very well in your business." – Jacob Zuma

I do not understand why this upset so many people. For the first time Jacob Zuma is completely honest. He openly states, and advertised, the current leadership’s policies of corruption and nepotism. This is an open public invitation to take part in the stripping of the country’s wealth to serve just the few “connected” people. The blurred differential between governing party and state is now also finally cleared up. Zuma and his cronies regards the state as their personal self enriching family business, and this is an open statement of intent that from now on all government contracts will exclusively be given to party members that toes the line.

Jackson Mthembu explanation is a joke; "It is our tradition as Africans that if someone gives you something, in return you thank him/her and wish them prosperity and abundance."

By trying to spin the president’s nepotistic statement in an attempt to make it more palatable for the rest of the world, he manages to put his foot in even further. Does Mr Mthembu want us to believe that blatant “kick back” corruption is African tradition?

“I think not Mr Mthembu! Corruption and nepotism might be your and your cronies tradition, but please do not taint the total African population with your morally indefensible ways!”

Fascism or nepotism?

Accusations of fascism could very easily be countered with accusations of nepotism maybe, corruption possibly, or, perish the thought, outright theft – of taxpayers money.  Read more...
