Petition to impeach Zuma over Nkandla

2013-11-29 14:55

Cape Town - A petition has been started to impeach President Jacob Zuma over his involvement in the Nkandla scandal.

The petition was put up on website Change.org. It was created by the Committee for the Impeachment of the President.

“The leaked public protector report on Nkandla proves that president Zuma lied to Parliament and personally benefitted from over R200m of public money [without proper tender].

“Further, he personally intervened, unlawfully, by appointing his own architect over those already employed by the department of public works.”

The committee called for the “immediate impeachment” of Zuma and urged that he be prosecuted.

Zuma must be called to account - Madonsela

Social activist Zackie Achmat wrote on the website that he supported the petition and said he would help organise a demonstration on 13 February 2014.

The saga surrounding Zuma’s homestead hit the headlines again on Friday after the Mail & Guardian published parts of Thuli Madonsela’s provisional report into the upgrades.

Government has stated the upgrades were essential for Zuma's security, but Madonsela found a swimming pool, visitors' centre, amphitheatre, cattle kraal, marquee area, extensive paving, and new houses for relatives included in the upgrade at "enormous cost" to the taxpayer.

Madonsela's report recommended the president be called to account by Parliament for violating the executive ethics code on two counts.

These were for failing to protect state resources, and misleading Parliament for suggesting he and his family had paid for all non-security-related features.

One of the key allegations listed in the report stated that costs escalated from an initial R27m to R215m, with a further R31m in works outstanding. 

Twitter reaction

Twitter users on Friday expressed their dismay at the Mail & Guardian report while others made sarcastic comments about the Zuma homestead.

"How can we be expected to believe anything the President says? He must be called to task #Nkandla #nkandlagate," one Twitter user wrote.

"If the #ANC want my vote next year then hold #Zuma accountable now and prove you the party of old. #Nkandla#2014elections #nothappening," said another.

A Telkom parody profile tweeted: "Hm, just learnt that you can also pay your etolls by depositing money into this account: JZ NKANDLA TRUST, STD BANK, Acc No. #000001."

Another said: "Everyone should go to #Nkandla on 27 April - 1 May and have a commemorative jol there. Amandla awethu."

"Where do we get the number for Zuma's anti-corrpution hotline? Need to report him #Nkandla #nkandlagate," said another.  - News24 and Sapa

    So does anyone actually think that an online petition is going to make the Prez do the honorable thing? Hmmm, K

      Doing nothing is not an option. Start chipping away.......... Who knows, maybe we can rid ourselves of this rotten apple.

      He does not have to do the "honorable" thing. Impeachment = fired.

      Am sorry kiss 123 its not black culture to steal and lie. Black culture depicts high level of morlity. That is why in the African family system a family head without intergrity is deposed

      Ashanzi Afrika - 2013-11-29 16:09

      This is the end of your president, South Africa. It is also possibly the end of your current ruling party. Do the honourable thing, South Africa, and elect your own government and make them accountable to you, the people, who are the real rulers of the country.

      Godfrey Welman - 2013-11-29 16:53

      @Wills24...No, but that ANC can recall and expel him for bringing the party into disrepute. To prevent him being FIRED and charged for corruption.

      Logan Young - 2013-11-29 16:58

      Whether or not it actually changes anything, history will say that the nation stood against it and that government did nothing about that.

      wills24 - 2013-11-29 17:00

      @Godfrey, I think that the difference with Mbeki vs. Zuma, is that Zuma has strategically kept those who support him close, I do not see it going down like that to be honest, not this time around. But hey, this is the ANC and SA politics, nothing is impossible. Anyway you look at it, the amount of attention this is getting, I cannot foresee it getting brushed off in the usual manner.

      Linds Ron-House - 2013-11-29 18:08

      Agreed. The problem with South Africans is that we believe protest is only for poor black people. If people want to get Zuma out of office then they must get off their bums drive to the Union Buildings in Pretoria and Parliament in Cape Town and camp there until the president resigns. Bring the entire country to a stand still. I'm talking about professionals here. Pilots should stop all flights. Even schools must be closed. Seal off Pretoria and Cape Town. Really bring the country to its knees. Within a week the president will resign because he will not even dare do what the Syrian president is doing. Elections will not work. Only a popular uprising will.

      Alex - 2013-11-29 18:36

      Why are none of the opposition parties calling for his impeachment????

      Johan Diedericks - 2013-11-29 19:40

      Problem is that it is money spent! Zuma wins both ways!

      Dave Elmore - 2013-11-29 22:18

      Linds, is that really you saying that, or has someone hijacked your profile? I'm with you man on this, time and place tell me to protest...

      What a disgrace Jacob "Tortoise-face" Zuma is. Does he have no shame ?

      Keith Kelly - 2013-11-30 08:33

      It IS PRECISELY THAT sort of attitude..."does anyone actually"...which ALLOWS despots and dictators to commit crimes against their own Country!!!! Does anyone think....? Well, those few remaining citizens who still have the will and the logic to REALIZE that evil flourishes when good folk do nothing DO THINK that pursuing IMPEACHMENT and thereafter PROSECUTION in the INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT OF JUSTICE is imperative, as opposed to optional!!!!

      Agree Alicia... I have posted actual petition link 5 times and it keeps getting deleted. If you want to sign, select link in article then do Search on "Zuma" - petition is second listed!

      Barnie Huysamer - 2013-11-30 10:18

      @Linds. As a law abiding citizen I do not believe in demonstrations although it is my right according to our Constitution. I believe we have a vote to have the government of our choice in power. I did not vote for this government and will not vote for it in 2014 as they have not shown that they are capable of governing the country. I encourage each person who will be voting next year, to vote for change. We can not continue on this path for another 5 years. There is no-one in the ANC who will stand up against JZ and this is a major concern - there is no integrity shown by any ANC minister. They all come up with excuses as to why there is no service delivery/corruption, but no-one takes decisive action. They always have "plans" to improve. I've been hearing that for too long now. Why are you saying elections won't work? Voting in an election is our only legal tool to effect change of government. Popular uprising sounds dangerous, considering what happens at service delivery protest marches.

      I'm also sorry Emeka Ukwakwe, but with people's continuous support for lying and stealing politicians, I also find it hard to believe that people have a culture of honesty.

      Debbie Ryan - 2013-11-30 13:05

      Alicia ... whats even easier is if you go to the actual petition then copy the actual link - then send to all your email contacts. They will be chuffed to be taken right to the actual page instead of having to look for it. Yes I have posted on my FB wall to ;)

      @jangrimbeek. Yes the rest of the world will see it and will say "TIA" They will also wonder why keep pouring billions in aid to an Africa that seems to love this kind of leader. It's so sad but it gets repeated in Africa again and again and again and…yawn

      Re Nkandla "Swimming Pool", you people have it all wrong - as part of his comprehensive security set up, it was decreed that the South African Navy must have a presence at No 1 to be ready for any Invasion, as we cannot have a Navy without water - hey presto - a Inland Harbour disguised as a swimming pool :-)))))

      OldNick - 2013-11-29 23:22

      @Wish. Yes, if you are unhappy with the ANC (and you have every reason to be) and the DA doesn't appeal to you the by all means vote EFF. A vote for the EFF (or any other opposition political party) is a vote less for the ANC and to achieve anything in this country we have to weaken the ANC. I gave you up thumbs, because you have the right idea. What would all those people who gave you down thumbs have you do? Vote DA? Perhaps you don't want to. Not vote at all? Well that's so unpatriotic as to almost be criminal. You vote EFF if you feel that they are saying the right things for you, and please encourage your friends to vote as well.

      Rodney Bevan - 2013-11-30 02:50

      5526 signatures 5 minutes ago. hopefully millions will sign it and that will be the end of Showerhead and maybe the ANC as the ruling party.

      Lorraine no blow to the ANC. They were planning in any way to replace him next year, so if he goes now, thet replace him with Cyril. Cyril comes with new promises, and the masses follows him. Zuma has lost trust with the masses. Political chess.

  • Alan Erwin - 2013-11-29 15:10

    Kick his ass out - corrupt like the rest of the ANC leadership (all Zumas mates) I bet anyone as much as he has stolen from us tax payers he walks away laughing - makes me sick, and if his following vote for the ANC next year it will show how stupid they are, you get what you vote for.

Why do they only hand out food parcels when it is election, whu not through out the year? They have their warm house, hot food, boose and clothes, and they bought it with your money. Wake up, really, can the masses be so stupid?

I suppose it is too much like hard work trying too find the right department to pump tax money into, so why not just spend it on a luxury home.

      It's not just "the opposition" calling for impeachment- it's the general public!

      yroberts - 2013-11-29 17:01

      No, a political point scoring agenda is when a president is brought up on impeachment charges for lying about having oral sex with someone he's not married to. That's what an agenda looks like. When the other parties start digging for dirt like that - dirt that honestly doesn't even matter - that's when you get to say there's a political point scoring agenda. This is NOT the case with President Zuma.

      OldNick - 2013-11-29 23:40

      Your point is well put, but for one critical flaw. This is not a new issue. There is a heap of evidence that has come out over the last two years, and the government have done everything possible to avoid the issue and the implication that the president is a common thief. The once noble ANC have effectively committed political suicide when they chose Zuma over much more credible and acceptable leadership last year at Mangaung. They had the opportunity to rid themselves of this buffoon and failed (although there is plenty of evidence that the process was rigged). The Nkandla report was being delayed by the usual typical Zuma crony obfuscation tactics. If it wasn't leaked now it would have been leaked at some point in the future, and I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't by anti-Zuma factions within the ANC. Zuma's tactics are well known, and the only way to get around them is by leaking legitimate information. This is more than a battle over corruption, wastage, greed and ambition at the highest level, it is a battle for the soul of the ANC. If you'd rather wait for the 'official' report, you're welcome, but the battle might be long over before that happens. Zuma is aiming at a lifetime dictatorship, this is not what we fought for, this is not the freedom we were promised. Do we want to allow this to happen? I certainly don't. For the sake of the ANC and the country as a whole, he must be taken down at all cost.

    In any African country,he will be considered a strong chief he gets away with everything,we all know he had something like 200 criminal charges,against him dropped because of his relationship with Shaik,who was supposed to go to jail before he recieved a full pardon from his partner in crime Zuma.In any civilized country in the world those actions would have already led to impeachments,he will get away with all his lies ,the problem is all his cronies in the government who are sharing in his milking of the countries assets to their private banking accounts will bank him to the hilt ,and when it comes to voting time,all the poor and oppressed uneducated people who suffer the most because of these blatant thefts and corruption will vote him into power again, then two weeks later they will have violent protests because of service delivery that is the problem of Africa they love to suffer.

      As you so correctly point out, those who are not afraid of Zuma and go up against him do seem to come off second best. The frightening reality is that this the Zuma style. I have often wondered what his hold is on the ANC, why is the party so afraid of him? We should be worried, because he will not leave without a brutal battle. He will fight to the bitter end, because he knows if he loses power he will end up in jail for a long long time.

    If allegations made against Zuma are true, the ANC have no alternative but to fire him - like they did with Mbeki. That is if Mbeki was not fired for personal gain!

    There was a joke long ago when the Groot Krokodil / Big Crocodile (PW) was still President: PW's secretary came into his office and said "Sire, the people has come to greet you", whereafter PW replies: Oh!, where are they going?

  • Marie Chilcott - 2013-11-29 15:43

    Where can I sign the petition?

  • Lee Jones - 2013-11-29 15:44

    Resign and arrest!!!!!!

  • Moajo Tsakane Moacwiemang - 2013-11-29 15:44

    Petition will waste time. Doing petition seems like we are building another parliament that was used in 1992. Let's unseat these current officials. Unity is our solution. From now on who will satisfy the needs of society? Corruption delayed everything in our country (employment, services, development. etc). This man zuma ga ana pelo tlhomogi. Thina ANC members let's stop to be stereotype. Tria-party alliance is doing nothing as the middle class.

      How about a nationally coordinated sit-in outside the gates of Nkandla. As someone who is lucky enough to have a job I will be happy to pledge R500 per month to a coordinated fund the proceeds of which will be utilised to feed and house the unemployed youth and others who have been failed by government during the last 5 years, in a sprawling tented village outside the gates of Nkandla. Those whom we so support will then take the fight to Zuma by picketing his home. What is your opinion on this suggestion? Our aim will be to sicken and shame him into resigning.

  • Bongeka - 2013-11-29 15:47

    The petition is a very good thing to do. But who do you lovely South Africans see fit for the presidency and why? We don't need more corruption and empty promises. So we have to choose with our heads not our hearts.

      DeWet Du Plessis - 2013-11-29 19:24

      Very valid question. I would think, first of all, not a politition. Maybe someone like Jonathan Jansen. Seeing that education is the only way out of this mess. How about Desmond Tutu?

      Judith Mellet - 2013-11-30 10:08

      No, De Wet. How about one of the amazing WOMEN South Africa seem to have sprouted over the past few years... Nobody notices that we have a few formidable women who, I think, will make an honest, compassionate and wise president. The ANC Womens League do not want to recognise these women as potential presidents; they dont want to acknowledge that a woman can be our president - but look at the dismal choices and decisions made by these ANCWL ladies anyway.

      Laura Lyn Finch - 2013-11-30 18:02

      I agree, a woman would be perfect for the job!! Maybe Thuli Madonsela or Patricia de Lille!!!

      Bongeka - 2013-11-30 20:02

      I also think Thuli Madonsela would do a wonderful job.

    Down with the Bloody Red King. His hands stained with the blood of innocent he swore to protect. His pocket lined with the gold given by working class to uplift the poor. His heart blackened with little remorse for the destruction he sow upon a once flourishing nation. He, the Bloody Red King, who killed the dream of a dying old man.

  • James Schutz - 2013-11-29 15:52

    The ANC will have to get rid of Zuma just like Malema or risk losing their majority in next years elections.
