Zuma is a monster, tyrant - Kunene

2013-06-21 08:58

Johannesburg - Flamboyant businessman Kenny Kunene lambasted President Jacob Zuma on Friday, calling him a "monster" and a "tyrant" in an open letter published on The Star's website.

In the letter, addressed to Zuma, Kunene said: "In public you smile and laugh, but in truth you behave like a monster, a tyrant who will target perceived enemies ruthlessly, and because of that fear few dare to speak openly."

Kunene wrote that he had supported Zuma before he ascended to the presidency, but was now disillusioned with his leadership.

"I'm writing this because I've never been more disappointed with the ANC you lead.


"...Mr President, I don't want to be one of those who tell you in fear that you have clothes on, when it's obvious you are completely exposed," Kunene said, referencing the fairy tale "The Emperor's New Clothes".

He said Zuma's relationship with the Gupta family and the recent wedding scandal, and controversy surrounding spending on Zuma's lavish household at Nkandla, detracted from the president's credibility.

"The Gupta issue alone should be the last straw for many South Africans," Kunene wrote.

"But the extent of how much the Gupta family controls you, and by implication this country, has not even begun to be understood."

He said many people within the ANC were "terrified" to speak out against Zuma because they feared him.


"After the Shaiks and Julius Malema, the Guptas must know that you can drop them faster than they could drop your name. In your quest for self-preservation, you have become heartless."

Kunene defended his own lavish lifestyle, saying that the money he spent was not taxpayers money.

"I love the ANC, or what it's supposed to be, but I don't love your ANC," he wrote.

"For those of us who care, the question now is, as [communist theorist] Vladimir Lenin asked: 'What is to be done?'," Kunene concluded.

      Zuma is more than that, he is the most corrupt individual with unlimited marriages. I hate him. #SaluteMalema

      You Go Kenny!But,Be very careful,next SARS will be investigating you for tax evasion or fraud,but big ups to your comment and guts.Your piece will go a long way in eroding Zuma's stance,he is goig down and this is surely how to devour an elephant,bit by bit.Not that Zuma is an elephant,You cant compare any living thing with Zoo.

      Zuma won 2,986 votes out of the 3,977 votes cast in ANC Mangaung conference in December 2012. It's obvious that those 2,986 delegates who voted for him, approve of how he ran the country in the 1st term. Why else elect him for a second term? What do they stand to gain financially?

      Fred van der Merwe - 2013-06-21 10:02

      And thanks to BEE you are well on your way. But nevertheless eventually people will get the point when more speak out! We are the people and we have the power, its not about race, its about what is best for the nation.

      heathwaymasters - 2013-06-21 10:40

      Very clear indication of the absolute contempt the ANC has for the citizens of this country. We will do exactly what we like, and stuff you all. The only thing we need from Mr Citizen is for him to obediently pay his tax and do not forget, also SANRALS E Tolling System. For the rest you bugs do not need to be informed of anything the Government gets up to. Back to your flee infested kennel Mr Citizen, as you are all just a bunch of mangy whelps. And don’t you ever forget that the ANC will rule for the next 100 years, as we have a very sound base of semi-illiterates and very simple minded followers, who will forever support us faithfully and loyally, no matter what nasty things we get up to. A few rousing speeches, good music and dancing, a braai pack, T shirts and caps, and our re-election for office, is completely assured.

      If this opinion was from someone who is slightly different from the person he's bashing, I would have given it a thumbs up.

      Timmy Thomas - 2013-06-21 11:02

      We, the people of South Africa, and not the voting delegates in the ANC, can bring this country on its knees. We just need to forget our differences for a few months and fight against this monster. We can win the battle. We need a new government. Unfortunately, democratic processes like voting will always be won by the ANC. We have to find other ways to remove showerhead and his corrupt bunch. Jeff Radebe has been there for 19 years but he´s bloody useless. None of them have any ability whatsoever. What a bunch of crap!!

      heathwaymasters - 2013-06-21 11:18

      I recently heard on radio that an investigation is to be launch into alleged intimidation tactics being employed by ANC supports in view of the upcoming elections. They have instructed rural voters to take pictures of their ballot vote with cell phones, and show these pictures to the ANC supporters, to confirm that they have voted correctly. So much for African Democracy, and a clear sign as to what the corrupt and rotten ANC has finally become.

      In political terms this would be called incestuous canibalism. The beast is turning on itself.

      Ilze Garner - 2013-06-21 12:06

      Here follows an extract of Kenny's letter: I love the bit where he sticks it to Zuma, about not having any tenders: You may wonder what qualifies me to make any kind of political comment. As everyone knows, I'm just a socialite and a businessman, but it's also no secret I am a hobbyhorse for politicians to ride whenever they want to criticise "crass materialism" and the decay of morals. It's true, I like to spend, and I'm not an angel, but unlike politicians I'm not spending taxpayers' money. My real point is that, as a socialite and a businessman, I meet many people, including politicians. When they speak to your face, Mr President, they tell you your imperial clothes are very stylish. When they talk to me, and feel they are safe from your army of spies, most of them admit that you, the emperor, have no clothes. The Gupta issue alone should be the last straw for many South Africans. But the extent of how much the Gupta family controls you, and by implication this country, has not even begun to be understood. It's amazing how terrified most people in the ANC are to speak about this reality, because they truly fear you. Even if you're not in government, tenders are used to inspire fear among people of influence. Thank God my livelihood is not dependent on tenders. I'll save you the trouble of trying to find out if I have any tenders so you can cut me out of them. I don't have any.

      Ilze Garner - 2013-06-21 12:08

      The reason I supported you and your campaign is because you were marketed to us as someone who would unify us and get rid of the politics of fear, but today there's more fear and more division in the ANC than ever before. In public you smile and laugh, but in truth you behave like a monster, a tyrant who will target perceived enemies ruthlessly, and because of that fear few dare to speak openly. We'd have had yet another Cabinet reshuffle if your wings had not been clipped a little in Mangaung. Of course, I am not so naive as to blame everything regrettable that happens in the ANC on you. But in my home province, the Free State, the premier, Ace Magushule, imitates your behaviour and even seems to be trying to outdo you in being entangled with the Guptas. He learnt it from you. He thinks its okay to blow R40-million (or R140-million, others say) on a website. It's not a great website either, by the way. When even your Kenny Kunenes start thinking a guy is wasting money shamelessly, you should know how bad it is. Of course, we'd all like to know where that money really went.

      Ilze Garner - 2013-06-21 12:11

      This is not what the ANC is or should be. We thought it was bad enough with the Shaiks - but who could have predicted your, and therefore our, wholesale nationalisation by the Guptas? Even your immediate community, your neighbours in Nkandla, have to walk past your ridiculously overpriced palace donated to you by a once-unsuspecting public, knowing how you have your own private clinic they cannot use and their children must play in the dusty streets among the stones, while your compound has an astroturf sports field that cost the taxpayer R3.5-million and costs R100 000 a month to maintain. How is fake grass a part of security upgrades? Everyone knows the Public Protector's report will find damning evidence of what went on there - but something must be said now already, in case you find a way to shut her up too. It's no wonder the ANC lost the vote in Nkandla. If the people who know you best, the place you are from and where you occupy tribal land, do not trust you enough to vote for you, why should the rest of us?

      Ilze Garner - 2013-06-21 12:12

      This ANC is no longer the ANC of John Langa Dube, Oliver Tambo and other illustrious names. I'm also getting tired of hearing about how the ANC is bigger than any individual. There are those who are stubbornly loyal to the ANC, as if it's some kind of marriage, who keep the faith that some day the party will return to its roots. But even if they're my friends, I can't enthusiastically join in with the declarations of those who say they will die in coffins wrapped in ANC colours, no matter what, as my former business partner Gayton McKenzie once said to me. Mr President, I don't want to be one of those who tell you in fear that you have clothes on, when it's obvious you are completely exposed. I know the dogs will be set on me for saying this, but you have been naked for longer than most of us were willing to admit. And you're now stripping the ANC of the last shred of its integrity. The world laughs at us. I love the ANC, or what it's supposed to be, but I don't love your ANC. For those of us who care, the question now is, as Vladimir Lenin asked: "What is to be done?" - The Star

      Takie Van der Proes - 2013-06-21 12:12

      Lol ooooh...someone needs to read this fast to Zuma, I can't wait for Mac Maharaj's response.

      Miguel Capelo - 2013-06-21 12:32

      Hey Kennie. Watch those proposed business developments of yours be sidelined by government now! Still... for you to be stating the obvious, maybe you know its high time to JUMP ship!

      Mokaubere Ditabeng - 2013-06-21 12:49

      I am translating Kenny's letter into IsiZulu and Sesotho, to enable all South Africans who have been lied to for a long time, a chance to read for themselves and understand! Anyone who wants a copy for distribution please inbox me.

      Chrono Man - 2013-06-21 13:31

      The very day Zuma said the ANC will rule until Jesus comes again I prayed and asked that (1) he may be shown how quickly the ANC will fall and (2) that he should be instrumental in the ANCs demise. I am not against the ANC per se, but his arrogance just made me wish for that to happen. People should know that power is given and can be taken away by the Giver. Kenny's rant is just one of a number of small cracks that are beginning to appear in the foundations of the ANC. The ANC as we know it right now, the Zuma version of it, is terminally ill. There was an ANC that represented a political home for millions of people. It made wonderful promises to those people but the ANC of Zuma has gobbled up the resources meant to realise those promises and has shown the middle finger to the inhabitants of that home.

      True Blue - 2013-06-21 15:12

      The flaw in the ANC's electoral system is that it can fill a whole conference with specially chosen sycophants who will vote for their person because they have been promised lucrative, well-paying jobs which also allows them to plunder the state coffers. The whole election is a farce.

      Because it's not racist and whoever wrote this up has enough common sense to see this. However, I wouldn't be surprised if someone says that Kunene is anti-black soon, or is interested in preserving 'white capital' for his own business interests.

    the ANC is not getting my vote come next year as Mr Zuma is clealy running the organization as he pleases,how could the Nkandla developments be classified as Top secret when it was paid for by Tax payers money??

      Jurie Nel - 2013-06-21 09:27

      How indeed?

      thami.lawrencengubeni - 2013-06-21 10:44

      Luyolo just don't vote for DAY.

  • Tebogo Dipico - 2013-06-21 09:22

    Kunene your the first celeb to speakout against the dictatorship. Your peers are quiet as if they are foreigners in their own country

      Emree Makhathini - 2013-06-21 12:24

      speaking of foreigners, I understand that all boarder gates will be open as we SOUTH AFRICANS be voting & all foreigners will be given Naledi Pandor's ID cards that will be replacing ID books so they can vote for ANC, so my question is do you people of South Africa know about this? & if you I mean all of you think ANC will disappear just like that, I won't vote ANC on the next elections danki ngiya bonga ngayo not this time

      Ann Mathews - 2013-07-02 08:47

      Emree where do you hear this? Please information.

  • Tumelo Rich Seerane - 2013-06-21 09:22

    Well said! I think the Guptas are using Zuma because he lack leadership skills

      Jurie Nel - 2013-06-21 09:29

      Add to your reason the finding that he is the most corruptible politician in SA, and the president to boot. Cry, the beloved country.

  • Aaron Larry Chaava - 2013-06-21 09:23

    How dare u speak like that about the Furhër! The great Saltan of nkandla with its many wives... Soon we wil shout! 'Who killed Kenny??' Nd the anc wil shout 'you bastards' lol

      Jurie Nel - 2013-06-21 09:30

      You get my vote this morning, Aaron, for the gutsiest man around - everybody else wants to cry (me too), and you see the funny side of it. Well done!

  • Lynn Hattingh - 2013-06-21 09:24

    Kenny Kunene might not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier but I do agree with him. Zuma is going to have a lot of blood on his hands soon.

  • Francois Muller - 2013-06-21 09:26

    Dear Kenny, I must conclude that you are a “good man”. You have stood up against EVIL.

  • Lulu Rudo Shezi - 2013-06-21 09:26

    for once kenny speaks sense

      Ilze Garner - 2013-06-21 11:45

      Kenny might not be the most educated and I don't always agree with what he has to say, but he Always makes sense. He is not a saint, but then he never pretends to be. I like the fact that he has an opinion and that he is unafraid to voice it.

  • Gary Doyle - 2013-06-21 09:26

    Kunene is a rubbish himself but I like what he said, probably an understatement.

      Ilze Garner - 2013-06-21 12:17

      @Gary, and what makes Kenny rubbish? And what qualifies you to call people rubbish? Kenny makes money, as long as he is not robbing the taxpayer blind, the way he choses to spend his money is his business. If he wants to keep it and buy fancy cars and entertain women, you and I might not like that, but that's his right to do. Does not make him rubbish.

  • Moni Morena - 2013-06-21 09:26

    Kunene will soon b called to order by faceless ppl,,,,U cant just openly speak like that to our own feared number one citizen and get away with it. Lol

  • Kate Bosman - 2013-06-21 09:26

    What is to be done? is it not obvious? vote in an opposition party. and the DA is the only party capable of putting a dent in the ANC's power...

      Dessa Junior-Tshabisto - 2013-06-21 09:37

      Pipe dreams

      Tebogo Dipico - 2013-06-21 09:37

      Oh..please, no selfish inputs

      Tersia Louw - 2013-06-21 10:08

      Kate - not everyone's is ready to vote DA; too many lies told by politicking ANC okes. Tebogo - I do think we should encourage people in our respective circles to vote for any party other than the ANC and beg them not to abstain or spoil their vote.

      Kate Bosman - 2013-06-21 11:17

      I totally agree that not everyone is not ready to vote DA. I can understand many peoples disillusionment with all of the political parties. However we have to have a government and abstaining from voting helps no one. I live in the Western Cape and have found that at least the DA seems to get some results and as far as I have seen the leaders of the DA are not corrupt... But everyone must choose for themselves. I just wish that people would think analytically about who they vote for and not vote out of blind loyalty.

      Simphiwe Tladi - 2013-06-21 11:48

      Nah sorry,even your DA just showed its true colours,so I won't vote for it either!

      Keg - 2013-06-21 11:58

      @Simphiwe. Just out of interest sakes what are the true colours. Facts not ANC propoganda please.

      Ann Mathews - 2013-07-02 08:50

      @Simphiwe. Yes please tell us the facts about these true colours the DA has shown? Please be honest and speak with your head not your emotions.

  • Xola Ralarala - 2013-06-21 09:27

    Mr kunene answering your Question ''Wat is to be done ?'' join EFF is the answer. Phambili with Economic Freedom Fighters phambili.

      Fred van der Merwe - 2013-06-21 10:42

      XOLA! jy raas.Gaan tel die blare op!

  • Muzi-JoGa Zondi Thabani - 2013-06-21 09:30

    Ignore him he'll soon go away attention seeker!! every itch of lime light he finds he tries to capitalizes shut up!! You no voice of the people your a rich person seeking attention,and if it were coming from someone renowned for something worth while I'd understand but its coming from an opportunist like kenny renowned for eating sushi off naked women bodies come!!, On pay no attention to him, because Oscar's trial is on hold you think you can seek other means to make some publicity stunt #STFU

      AlexMarshall - 2013-06-21 10:13

      yes, Kenny Kunene is someone with very little honourable ground to stand on, but does that not say more about the person who he is criticizing? If someone of questionable motives is able to criticise Zuma, in a manner that is valid and honest, what exactly does that say about Zuma?

      Leonard Tsolo - 2013-06-21 10:45

      You IDIOT Thabani.Kunene doesn't spend public funds, instead his own money.

  • Lebitso Ngoepe Mmakwena - 2013-06-21 09:30

    Viva Kenny Kunene Viva.. yeo ke nnete bosso.

  • Eric Payi - 2013-06-21 09:30

  • KingPun - 2013-06-21 09:31

    Some where deep down there is a decent human being in him, it just cant be found...

      Tersia Louw - 2013-06-21 10:09

      I think we're beginning to see who he really is, beneath the bling.

  • Motlhatlhedi WA Mogaka - 2013-06-21 09:31

    Well said Sushi man he is a typical African leader who does'nt care about his people. But i guarantee you this he will not finish his 2nd term.

      Awsomekid - 2013-06-21 09:40

      What is you action plan?.Beware the IT spies of Zuma.

  • Frederick Thipe - 2013-06-21 09:31

    I generally struggled to take Mr Kunene seriously, but now he is growing up!!spot on!!!!!!!

  • Musa KamaShobane - 2013-06-21 09:32

    Oh wow, looks who is talking. Has it taken him this long to realise who is Zuma? Goodness him

      Mbuzeli Mntloniphi Tyesi - 2013-06-21 09:40

      ha ha haaa, now South Africans are starting to realize what i said long before he became the president of ANC. I never liked Mr Kunene but i like someone who speaks pure truth. This is not the ANC i joined.

      Tersia Louw - 2013-06-21 10:11

      Musa, give the man a figurative Bell's for having the cojones to speak out. I've not heard other celebrities criticise him publicly.

  • Awsomekid - 2013-06-21 09:33

    Kenny,the only difference between you and JZ is the size of the Spe....r.

      Tersia Louw - 2013-06-21 10:11

      Oh, grow up.

  • Zongi Donald Nyawula - 2013-06-21 09:34

    Is this going to change something or anything, Mr Kunene? And why now?

      Tersia Louw - 2013-06-21 10:13

      Words matter, and the electorate is listening. Wish Mr Kunene would read this letter out on radio so it could reach more people. Why now? If not now, then when? And yes, this could bring about a change, at least in some people.

  • Israel Levi - 2013-06-21 09:34

    It takes 1 mampara to recognise another

      Repo Kgotse - 2013-06-21 22:01

      Kenny kunene we're really appreciate u efforts to tell the whole SA the truth,take note SA we don't have President u can not call that bullish Man Prisedent.Zuma is Oxygen Thief,Monster,is busy selling our country for rubbish,Thanx Kunene God bless u My brother.

  • fransvisserdsb - 2013-06-21 09:34

    Edmund Burke: 'The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.' Kenny, I do not think you necessarily classify as a 'good man' in the strictest sense of the word. However, you are standing up against evil. I salute you.

  • Fhulufhelo Bobstar Takalani - 2013-06-21 09:34

    Yoh tough times Kenny Kunene dare to write a letter to Zuma

  • Lynda Pitcher - 2013-06-21 09:36

    He's just saying what we all think

      Ygivadamn - 2013-06-21 09:37

      So called Leaders within the ANC are just toothless and spineless. How can they be afraid of the PIEPIE man from Nkandla?
