President Jacob Zuma  (Deaan Vivier, Gallo Images, Beeld)
President Jacob Zuma (Deaan Vivier, Gallo Images, Beeld)

It is up to South Africans to free themselves from the mental slavery of historical loyalty to a party that has betrayed its promises.

The recent parliamentary no confidence vote against President Jacob Zuma was an eye opener even for the blindest loyal ANC supporter. The ANC leadership sought to force parliamentarians to privilege their loyalty to the ANC over their oaths of office to uphold the values of the Constitution of South Africa.

The choice was quite stark – supporting a motion to remove from office a man who not only came into it facing 783 charges of corruption, but one who has demonstrated beyond any doubt his total defiance of any code of conduct that defends and upholds our celebrated Constitution. His conduct has been characterised by total impunity. Yet the ANC urged its MPs not to vote in support of the motion of no confidence that could have freed our nation from this man who is making a mockery of our sacred constitutional democracy. He is trampling on the blood of martyrs such as Ahmed Timol, Solomon Mahlangu, Mapetla Mohapi and Stephen Bantu Biko.
