Open letter to Mr Self Enrichment Zuma

25 July 2014, 13:07

Allow me to first congratulate you on yet another victory as the president of the republic for another self enrichment 5 years for you and your family. Is it with great disbelief after having followed you and your family activities for the past 5 years to still believe that you are the right candidate for the No 1 post in the country.

As a public servants you are expected to reflect values that ensure that our democracy is not a pipe dream but a response to the aspirations of every citizen as envisaged in the Freedom Charter and our Constitution but your administration is that of self enrichment, corruption, nepotism and should I say broerskap in a form of deployments of Allies and cadres.

It is written and known by majority of your servants including me that your nephew khulubuse from being a taxi boss, is now a multimillionaire with oil deals amounting to millions in DRC, and I still ask was your quest for presidency self enrichment driven or service delivery driven?

your son Duduzane Zuma and your donors, the Guptas operated illegal mines and nothing was done to them, as if it was not enough he went on to kill an innocent soul, and he still walked free, wowwww. How does one comes from being a nobody without winning a lotto of course and becomes a billionaire in a space of 2 years, well u need a Zuma surname to be that person, Duduzane is the recipe.

Is this nepotism or Giving back?

From a lowly public liaison officer to the powerful position of chief of staff within two months at the age of 25, she now earns almost a million rand a year. She is Thuthukile Zuma why not?

Her dramatic rise to the position, which she assumed in May after the appointment of your new Cabinet, has raised concerns about political nepotism at the renamed department of telecommunications and postal services.

It appears the post was never advertised, although ministers have the prerogative to make these appointments without going through the normal processes. Several departments do advertise such posts to ensure they attract the best-qualified candidates.

Thuthukile now occupies a similar position to Lakela Kaunda, your chief of staff, who is considered to be one of the most powerful senior managers in the government.

Thuthukile Shortly after completing her undergraduate degree in 2011, she worked – or “volunteered”, according to the ANC – at the ruling party’s headquarters. She subsequently joined the State Security Agency and spent less than a year there.

The University of the Witwaters­rand confirmed that Thuthukile graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in April 2011 and received an honours degree in anthropology in June 2012. Is this enough to warrant her such post and responsibility when we have more qualified and experienced people for that job? Well she is a zuma after all, always get the best.

Like father like son

some years ago, Mziwoxolo Edward Zuma, was arrested for allegedly raping a 17-year-old woman, a fellow student at the University of Zululand.

But Edward Zuma, your son and of Minah Shongwe, sister of Transvaal Deputy Judge President Jeremiah Shongwe, was never prosecuted.

Having been released on bail and with the case set for trial two months later, the woman’s attorney wrote to the prosecuting authority that the woman wished to withdraw the charges.

Your spokesperson at the time Mathula Magubane said the complainant had willingly withdrawn the charges because she had acted emotionally rather than rationally in “a lovers’ tiff”.

A few days before Christmas, when Edward Zuma appeared in the Mtunzini Magistrate’s Court, the prosecutor announced that he was withdrawing the charge on instructions from the regional prosecuting authority. The biological connection between Zuma and Judge Shongwe reportedly scuppered the possibility of Shongwe presiding in Zuma’s rape trial.

Before I lay my head to rest be rest assured like Charles taylor and muammar gadaffi your days are numbered. All this will pass the era will and regime will change. And the fall of self enrichment shall come to an end like the fiery miracles in Egypt. You will be left with nothing due to the tears of the citizens of the masses that made you number 1 with a belief that you will help them by taking away poverty, narrowing racial gaps, making the future look better for the off springs…

Rest assured, I Rest my case
