Time to fire Zuma

12 September 2012, 11:28

Barely 3 months ago I asked if South Africa was ripe for a coup (http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/Is-South-Africa-ripe-for-a-coup-detat-20120609). Today I once again ask this question, South Africa is even more rudderless 3 months down the road and Zuma is too busy trying to save his presidency than to bother ruling South Africa in a fair and democratic manner.

The Marikana mine saga has become a catalyst for Malema to beat the “strike" war drum and this has now spread to the military. It takes a leader with balls to stop this kind of dangerous rhetoric and sadly Zuma lacks them (except in paintings).

The ANC would best serve South Africa by recalling Zuma immediately and not wait for Mangaung in December. Zuma’s agenda, hidden or otherwise, has never been clear and by sitting on the fence, making bad decisions and appointments he has played the classic game of playing one against another to create confusion amongst the ranks of the ANC. One has to wonder what “hold” he has over his fellow colleagues who blindly consider him a leader, is it possible that his time spent as Chief of the Intelligence of Umkhonto we Sizwe gave him the necessary information.

The dangers of selecting a leader based on popularity are now staring us in the face and the repercussions are being felt by all. This is not about race, creed or sex – this is about your country and the only thing to do is the right thing; fire Zuma now before a coup becomes a reality.
