ALLOW me to add my voice to the chorus of decent citizens calling for President Jacob Zuma to resign.
In simple terms, the Constitutional Court said Zuma stole our money, he lied to the nation and flouted the law that he swore to uphold.
The scores of comrades shielding him from accountability must ask themselves some serious questions about integrity, decency, principle and ethics.
Do they have any?
I’ve been wondering how many of them have children, and what moral teaching they are imparting to their children.
What lessons do young people take from all this corruption of morals; that you can steal and lie and not face any consequences?
Zuma’s comrades protect him out of loyalty, but loyalty at what price?
What values are we teaching by staying loyal to people who lie and steal?
If you sacrifice principle and morality for political expediency, what right do you have to claim to represent any of us in Parliament?
We toppled apartheid because it was immoral, an immorality that enabled black people to hold the moral high ground.
We taught the world about ubuntu. The hubris of the president today calls for renewed dialogue on those philosophies that won us global respect as a nation.
