Carl Niehaus is correct about Jacob Zuma

06 June 2018, 11:05

When Carl Niehaus declared that the ANC NEC was wrong in their decision to prohibit ANC members from supporting Mr Jacob Zuma in his legal woes, he hit the nail on the head. I really admire his insight and honesty.

Carl seems to be the only one around with a healthy memory. It is true what he said: "Mr Zuma is a member of the ANC and he cannot be divorced from the ANC. Therefore the ANC cannot divorce themselves from him". Also, Carl remembers that the ANC said - on many occasions - that Mr Zuma was the face of the ANC while he was their president, which then means that the ANC supported whatever Zuma said or did.

Good on you, Carl! Carl and I also remember that Mr Zuma said that the ANC is more important than South Africa. So, ANC unity is of extreme importance, as it always was. This unity served the ANC so well, that a vast number of ANC cadres are now millionaires and billionaires. BEE and "Radical Economic Transformation" worked so well that many billions of rand flowed from state owned enterprises to ANC members' families, friends and crony banking accounts, for instance. And Guptas. This is what we call success! "It's the party unity that promotes impunity and dedication to the Gravy Train."  

But, of course, you peasants won't understand. You must just vote for us.

On a serious note, though, Carl is correct. It is not Zuma alone who must face the music (the 783 is just a prelude, by the way). When the full orchestra starts playing the second movement of state capture in A or C minor, then the whole of the organisation should be in the dock to demonstrate their commitment to corruption and looting. No individual can be held responsible - it is the "collective", right?

Poor Cyril. He must say the "right" things, and make out that he is an upstanding guy (pity about the buffalo and Marikana) but he will always be subject to the will of the inherently corrupt and self-seeking ANC. Just like Zuma.
