Zuma is living it!

09 October 2012, 08:49

Once in his controversial life time, Zuma was accused of corruption.  But because of his own doing, the case never saw the end in a court of law. Today it shouldn’t be surprising to some when Zuma sees nothing morally wrong in spending more than R230m of taxpayers money for his personal use.

Some might be tempted to ask – when will this systematic looting of state coffers end? Zuma is Presiding over corruption on an industrial scale and he is relishing every moment of his tenure.

The same home was in question during his corrupt relationship with one infamous Shabir Shaik.  Zuma’s addiction to excesses was also exposed during Shabir’s corruption trial.  And I guess since becoming President – the lure of the public purse is too exhilarating to ignore. His excesses have no limit as exposed in his private and political life. 

Like every dictator the world over, some countries have simply become (Pty) Ltd of so-called leaders and their families. And Zuma is not to be out done by despots infesting the African continent.  When the patriarch ascended the all powerful ANC Presidency, his brood savored the day and immediately commenced ‘businesses’ because they were now guaranteed state tenders and other lucrative BBBEE spoils. Zuma has arrived and the family is living it!

Corruption, money laundering and insider-trading is on an industrial scale benefiting  some well connected politicians, their families and friends. Zuma is morally corrupt to see everything wrong, when politicians are referee and player at the same time. Insider trading - is treated as serious crime in the private sector, but not in the public sector where Zuma condones politicians bidding on tenders they were privy to in their respective Portfolio Committees. Through Chancellor House, Zuma’s ruling party is in business with the same government it heads.  Everyday lucrative conditions are created by Zuma’s ruling party to benefit itself and its benefactors.

The rot has long destroyed the head and thus the irrational decisions taken by Zuma ever since ascending the ANC throne. There is no hope for a maggot infested body.

Zuma is living it at the expense of every South African taxpayer and it seems nothing will stop his immoderation.

The question is – if remotely given a chance to directly elect the next President in 2014,

Would Zuma see the light of day?  Do South Africans really deserve the rot misleading them today? 

Your guess is as good as mine!
