President Jacob Zuma - The man we love to hate

27 February 2014, 14:06

President Jacob G. ZUMA is the face of the Ruling Party, whether we like it or not, he is going back to the South African Parliament as the leader of the Executive, so deal with it. Some of his important traits:

Corrupt: President JG ZUMA is known to be a worse corrupt leader who is helping himself with Taxpayers funds by financing his constructing his homestead of INKANDLA. He is known to be close to Shabir Shaick who was convicted in accounts of corruptions charges. He is also known to be close to the wealthiest family who at some point in time ignored all the safety protocols and landed their plane at the army base, (GUPTA Family).

Another person that known is the Former Police Boss, Mr. Richard MDLULI. Mr Mdluli is known to have caused the death of the guy who was married / lover of his girlfriend. Mr Mdluli is known to be at some point in time was a close ally to the President Zuma.

Victim: Prior of Polokwane ANC Conference, President Zuma was seen as a VICTIM of his predecessor Mr. TM MBEKI, he emerged voctorious after the conference and he was given power to lead the powerful organisation in Africa, that is 102 today. He was also a victim through the Shaik charges as his name was constantly mentioned during the case proceedings. He is still a victim in the GUPTA gate, the NKANDLA gate, you name them.

Lover: President Jacob G ZUMA is married to (6) six wives and has fathered 20 children. He is a man of love and affection and those who are close to him, he is a family man. He loves his wives and children and he has taken a position to come out clean and to take the responsibility of supporting the children you have fathered of which many people are failing to do. All of his wives have the houses and live with their children. Perhaps a lesson or two can be drawn from this. "Man must love their wives and the children", looking after the family as the head it is important for the President Zuma.

Kindness: President JG ZUMA is a kind man. I remember when the DA leader was pushing for a meeting and especially a public debate with the President, after a meeting, she was singing in different tune saying "the man is so kind". Many people who needed business opportunities, they prefered  approaching him as they find that he is accessible and understanding. Those who seeks refuge from what ever problems they are facing, they approached him. Even the founder of the EFF, he also found him very accomodating that is why he was in the position to tell the public that he is prepared to sacrifice his life for the president.

Happy man: President JG ZUMA is known for his laughing trade mark (Hehehehe, "usho bani, usho kimi"), that is why he is so healthy as his heart has no buggage. He lives in the inxulumakazi to accomodate all the family and relatives. He looks after the orphans and he also feeds those who are needy. He lives a free life that is happy and very accomodating.

Opennes: President JG ZUMA is an open man. He is a man that is open-minded and he gives opportunities for one to voice out your ideas and concerns. He has attracted many people for so doing, those who are genuine friends and colleagues and also bad friends. Like any living person, it is not possible close out to people. If you are a leader, it is one of the biggest traits that one needs to able to manage the diverse personalities.

A punching bag: President JG ZUMA is like a punching bag, many political leaders who wishes to raise their profile on politics, they throw whopping punches on him. They insult him in different insults and he never challenges them. I could say that the Congress of the People was formed in his time, Economic Freedom Fighters are also formed during his time. We have seen the increase of the political awareness in youth because of him.

Warrior: President JG ZUMA is a warrior. He has been in the numerious wars both politically and legal battles. To all he has emerged victorous. There were times whereby he should have thrown the towel, but the conviction kept him going. A warrior will do anything to win the battle. Always in the war there are casualties and those who survive the war. But eventually the life goes on and the country must be built in the foundation of love and peace.

A Leader: President JG ZUMA is the leader of the ruling party and the President of South Africa. The reality is that he is going to lead for another 5 year term, those who hate him politically will be on the opposite side in the parliament and those who are under his leadership will be behind him for the support.

The question I have is that, the negative publicity about the life of the President is it because he is too open to people? Is it because he is so trusting? Is it because he is so understaning and accomodating? Is he corrupt by nature or he is corruptable?
