There are those that will criticize the president. And there are those that will defend him. It depends on the scale, which side is heavier.

No doubt we know which side it is. But fools are blind.

That is not our problem. The push has to be exerted, as the Arch once said. The stone has to be tilted over. Dali Mpofu said, “I wish he does not go. He brings us the votes.” I wish he does.

He is destroying the economy. But that is not for me to say. It depends on the people. Can they see? Are they blind? Last Thursday was a tipping point in the realm of public speaking.

No one has spoken like that before: Zemk’ Iinkomo Magwalandini! It made you want to stand up. It made you want to listen. And it made you to wish you were there. And it reminded you of the past.

When men would not let their cattle to be taken away. The battle cry was, “Let’s go get them back!” Cattle now are not cattle per se. It is the economy. It is the economy when it is being messed up.

It is the economy when it is being ruined.

How? By capturing the treasury. And when you do that you capture the SOEs. And when you do that there is no need to report to the people.

How you spend the money. What you need it for.

You do, as you like, for there is a father figure behind you. This father figure is making sure that patronage is dished out. I don’t know whether you understand.

Sometimes it is not good to use big words, because people do not understand.

You want to make them to understand, so that they can see how the economy is stolen. How it is going to a few, instead of going to a plenty.

Zemk’ Iinkomo Magwalandini! And it is not wrong to say that. It is a right thing to say. And it is not easy to say it. You have to be bloody brave. And to do that; you do not do it to spite someone.

You do that because you are in pain. I guess there are so many of us that are in pain. It is not nice to see the rand get weak. You wonder where it will end up. It is not nice to think we can be downgraded.

South Africa will become a junk state. It de-moralizes. All of us have a moral duty to protect this country. We have nowhere else to go. And if we let it slide; we will have no one to blame but ourselves.

It would be like we allowed them to steal our cattle, and we did nothing. We said, “Go on. Go ahead.” Is that normal? It is not. It is absurd. Let the voice of the people not be in vain. It is the voice of God. Stay positive.
