AngloGold chairperson Sipho Pityana knew exactly what he was doing when he drafted this powerful speech for the memorial service to his close friend, former Eastern Cape Premier Makhenkhesi Stofile.

Such was Stofile’s stature within the ANC that the service attracted virtually all the movement’s heavyweights. Pityana says it is a pity that one, South African President Jacob Zuma, was not in attendance. Because in many ways the speech was written for him  – with the express intention of explaining why Zuma is no longer “honourable” and why he should resign his office and depart forthwith.

The deeply flawed ANC President has been attacked before. But never with such contempt, in such detail and at such length as Pityana does here. The Youtube video has had more that 130 000 views, which must be a record for a South African eulogy.
