ANC gave us Zuma, they must go with him

12 February 2018, 10:24

If we had a democracy, Zuma would have been out a long time ago.

But we don't. We have sets of competing gangsters called political parties and the main gang was protecting Zuma for a very long time. Why? Surely because Zuma allowed many of them to benefit as greatly as himself by looting.

Was it not Hlaudi Motsoeneng who said that he started "radical economic transformation" by granting himself a R2m + salary? Others followed, of course, like he said: SAA, Transnet, Eskom, Petro SA, commissions, facilitation fees and grants - all counted in the millions. And how do you like Brian Molefe's military appointment  (part time, mind you) at a salary of R57 000 per month? This over and above the millions that went his way under this "radical" ANC policy?

If there was no ANC, Zuma would have been out a long time ago.

The ANC caused the problem - and it was them who kept it going. How many times have the ANC MPs voted in Zuma's defence? Voted against the interests of South Africa? Were those within the ANC who thought of voting otherwise not threatened with disciplinary action or the loss of their jobs? Was ANC unity not more important to them than South Africa as a country?

Who in his right mind would allow the state president and his party to loot like they did? Was this the will of the people? No! Certainly NOT! But the ANC in their arrogance interpreted a majority vote as carte blanche. To them it was a license for nepotism and corruption.

If each MP votes only on mandates received from the people within their constituencies - if there are no political parties to dictate to MPs how they should vote on issues - then we will be closer to democracy and further away from political gangsterism.
