2011-12-15 17:06

Johannesburg - Newly appointed special investigating unit head Willem Heath has resigned from his post, Eyewitness News reported on Thursday.

EWN said this had been confirmed by the justice ministry.

Heath was appointed to the position by President Jacob Zuma just two weeks ago.

A storm erupted around Heath's head after he told City Press in a wide-ranging interview that he believed former president Thabo Mbeki had initiated rape and corruption charges against Zuma.

    And the entertainment continues. I wonder how big his golden handshake for 2 weeks of service was?

    Public opinion prevails! Fight them on the streets, fight them in the gutters, but mostly, fight them in the press!

  • Larry - 2011-12-15 17:29

    ANother one bites the Dust. What next for JZ.

  • joeballito - 2011-12-15 17:31

    Now I wonder who the next puppet is going to be?Better the devil you know....Zuma will never appoint a a neutral person,or anyone that is capable of doing the job

  • Mr Squid - 2011-12-15 17:31

    Good. His comments since his appointment showed that he was a remarkably poor choice for the job.

    Hope DA r hapy cos their aim to rule this country thru the courts.

      ddejong3 - 2011-12-15 17:48

      It's called the constitution. Something the older ANC members were very proud of. Besides the DA had very little to do with Heaths suicidal tendencies. This was a total scandal within the ANC.

      Gungets - 2011-12-15 18:02

      Better than ruling it with your knob.

  • Burtfred - 2011-12-15 17:33

    This once again is an example of Zuma not "applying his mind" Surely a national president that makes so many cock-ups should be booted out by the voting public.

    The circus continues.

  • Shoe - 2011-12-15 17:44

    Someone I will not name gets for the joke that he is. The biggest joke of a president. I wonder what Thabo Mbeki will say after he stops rolling on the floor and gets back to his chair.

      Shoe - 2011-12-15 17:49

      "Gets exposed for the JOKE that he is"

  • Velile - 2011-12-15 17:45

    moron gud ridance

  • Dewdawn - 2011-12-15 17:54

    Is it possible that JZ wants to be brought up on disciplinary charges for bringing the ANC unto disrepute. If so he must be sure of his dirty tricks department to come up with more "tapes" that will free him again,

  • Wesley - 2011-12-15 18:00

    I heard Julius Malema also applied for the job

  • Wesley - 2011-12-15 18:09

    Zuma / Heath something like a Holywood marriage

  • jwdupreez - 2011-12-15 19:17

    Good riddance brown nosed fart
