Why our president is worthy of our respect and support

07 July 2013, 19:49

More than 4000 of our brightest minds representing millions of ANC-supporters who are not as bright, but liberally endowed with  common sense and other good qualities elected Jacob Zuma by a substantial majority as leader of the ANC. Most of these people have known him for a long time as a freedom fighter and later as vice president of our beloved RSA.

There was a low period in his career when a judge said that he had had a 'generally corrupt ' relationship with his financial adviser the convicted fraudster  Scabir Shaik . He was also charged with the rape of an HIV-positive lady but was adjudged  innocent .

A great problem  for him however was an indictment brought against him of more than 700 fraud and tax evasion charges. Fortunately for himself and the country the case was thrown out by the National Prosecuting Agency ( NPA ) when they discovered that there had been political interference.

Many people , especially from the opposition parties , felt that he was not fit for public service because of these unfortunate events , but sanity prevailed and the ANC top brass decided that the country could not lose a man of his calibre.  Some , like former ANC Youth League president , Julius Malema , said that he was prepared to die for president Zuma.

When Jacob Zuma became president he immediately enlarged the cabinet considerably to improve services and replaced dead wood with able energetic people like Angie Motshekga  ( Lower Education ) and Blade Nzimandi (Higher Education ) to name just two.

Since then our all important education results improved to a 70% plus pass rate for Grade 12's. There are however synical people who believe that this was only possible because of the low pass mark and low standards as well as manipulation of the learners' marks. 

These detractors are always ready to belittle ANC-achievements. I don't  know why.

The president is a live wire and does not sit around at Nkandla doing crossword puzzles. He is always jetting around the world, hobnobbing with world leaders and selling South-Africa and often advising goverments on serious matters of state. He is very influential in African affairs and is at present taking the lead in sending a powerful force to combat the rebels in the  DRC. Our brave soldiers and their equipment  are held in readiness for the assault.

There are many more of his achievements worthy of acclaim but the above will have to suffice for my purpose.

For those without pride in their country and its  leaders  a word of advice. Stop projecting our president as a clown and his goverment as a circus since that will only serve to detract from our excellent standing in the world , drive away investors , ruin our flourishing economy and increase the huge number of jobless.
