THE South African Communalist Party (SACP) in Umzimkhulu has described President Jacob Zuma as being a “sell-out”, who lacks morals because of the “selling the country” to the Gupta family.

This was said when the party held a memorial lecture about the late ANC and SACP activist, Harry Gwala, at Umzimkhulu Hall recently.

The lecture was attended by SACP chairperson and the Minister of Sports and Recreation, Thulasi Nxesi.

Umzimkhulu SACP secretary Lungelo Sibeko also said Zuma was a sell-out even when they were backing him.

“He sold us out even when we backed him in the controversial Nkandla scandal.

“He sold our former Minister of Public Works, Thulasi Nxesi and he [Nxesi] was part of the security upgrade at his home estimated [to be worth] R253 million. He came back saying he will pay back the money.

“He also moved Nxesi from the Public Works Ministry to Sport and Recreation without discussing it with anybody.

He also fired former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas replacing them with his friends because he wants to fulfill his corrupt mission,” said Sibeko.

He said Zuma dissolved the National Youth Development Agency even though they got clean audit reports because he wants to replace them with his [Zuma’s] friends.

The South African National Civic
Organisation (Sanco) was also at the lecture and said “enough is enough” regarding Zuma because the country is being destroyed.

They said Zuma is now campaigning for her ex-wife to succeed him as president.

Nxesi advised the packed hall to fight against what is wrong in the country.

“We’d rather die for the truth as they have already started killing our comrades in Umzimkhulu. Today our country is being run by the Gupta family and all decision-making is being done by the Guptas,” said Nxesi.

He said as the SACP they are discussing problems facing the government and said he hopes they will discuss the problems at the upcoming SACP national conference in order to bring back dignity to South Africa.

He complained about tenders who make connected people rich.

Nxesi supported deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa taking over after he finishes his term.
