Want to stop Zuma? Here’s how.

2015-12-11 11:41

A broad swathe of South African citizens, including me, believe that Zuma and his supporters are corrupt, that Zuma and his cronies are destroying our future and the future of our children.

Corruption is a crime. It is theft. It is the violation of you and me and our children on a grand scale. Quite simply it is breaking the law. Those that break the law must pay. But not only is corruption a crime, it is also a cancer, a cancer of society. The time has come to cut out the cancer attacking our society.

This is not about black, brown or white. It is not about politics. It is not about voting. It is a battle of the corrupt vs. the rest of us.

Will you just continue watching and moaning? Please don’t. The time to do something is now.

The time has come for you, me and all our fellow law abiding South Africans to force Zuma and his corrupt cronies to pay for crimes committed. This is what we must do: Institute a tax revolt, lifting it only when Zuma and his cronies are prosecuted for corruption by an independent court, and if found guilty sent to jail. It is actually quite easy to do. These are the steps: Successfully institute a mass tax revolt, bringing our politicians to their knees and under firm citizen control.

Simply stop paying:

-- Rates and taxes

-- Eskom


-- Don’t fly SAA or Mango

That’s it.

The goal is to stop any money within direct citizen control from reaching government bank accounts.

In the next few days and weeks we must rally all means of organisation available to co-ordinate the tax revolt: social media, non-profits, political parties, chapter 9 institutions, religious institutions, media, corporate South Africa etc.

There are many institutions purporting to work for citizens. Now is the time to see if they really represent us. Will you help organise a tax revolt or will you just facilitate moaning and groaning? Corruption Watch, Leadsa, Section 27, Institute of Race Relations, Outa, SERI etc. After a maximum 3 months of us not paying these taxes, parliament will have no choice but to accept a joint proposal from our combined social co-ordination bodies. That is when the next step kicks in. Prosecute Zuma and his cronies for corruption

Follow the money. It does not lie. Appoint audit firms PwC, EY, Deloitte and KPMG to do a full and broad lifestyle audit of

-- Zuma and his broad family

-- Every member of parliament and their broad families

-- Every minister and their broad families

-- Every deputy minister and their broad families

-- Every premier and their broad families

-- Every mayor and their broad families

Prosecution will not involve any of our corrupted police or prosecuting institutions. All investigation and prosecution will be carried out by the independent audit firms and contracted lawyers. The only institution we will use is our judiciary.

All trials will be public and recorded with each and every minute of any related trial available on Youtube.

The investigation supersedes any and all secrecy laws. There is nothing that we as South African citizens need to keep secret. Nothing. We do not have any bloody Jason Bourne agents running around trying to stop an enemy country from conquering us. Our only enemy is the corrupt, and they are the only ones wanting secrets.

Full access to all treasury and broad government and private industry bank accounts, all contracts and all electronic transaction systems relating to any activities or tenders brought under suspicion as part of the lifestyle audit.

Full and complete access to financial records held by Standard Bank, First National Bank, Barclays (ABSA), Nedbank, Capitec, African Bank and all other financial institutions involving any of the above mentioned people and their families, for both national and international accounts and all foreign exchange transactions.

With a little pressure one canary will start singing. This will cause another canary to sing. Pretty soon there will be a chorus of canaries clamouring for clemency.

This will cost a lot of money. Not R250 million. Maybe R1 billion, maybe R5 billion. Hell even R10 billion is a bargain. The nuclear madness involves R1 trillion…

Our country needs this.

You need this.

Your children need this.

We all need this.

So screw it, let’s do it.
