ANC Youth League have made it clear that Jacob Zuma ain’t going no place, and need Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma in the power situate next
The most intense group of the African National Congress Youth League made it clear on Thursday that president Jacob Zuma would stay put until his term arrived at an end.
Talking at a question and answer session at the area’s head office in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal youth class secretary Thanduxolo Sabelo said that previous open defender Thuli Madonsela was near extremely rich person Johann Rupert and huge business, which had prompted to her State of Capture report having a purposefully limit center.
Rupert is the chancellor of Stellenbosch University. Madonsela has been appointed chairperson of social justice for the institution’s law faculty.
He said that Rupert and other white capitalists also needed to be investigated.
“You can’t reduce the investigation to one business family, it needs to be broader and look at other business people,” he said.
Sabelo said that having Zuma removed before his term ended was merely “a dream” that would satisfy “the imperial forces looking for regime change”.
He said that Madonsela could not use the report to dictate who would lead a commission of inquiry into allegations made therein. The president should appoint whoever leads the commission, he said.
The league again reiterated its support for Zuma’s ex-wife, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, as ANC and South African president when Zuma’s term ends, calling her one of the mother’s of the nation.
KwaZulu-Natal has the party’s biggest membership and support base and is viewed as a “king-maker” within the ANC when it comes to the appointment of party and state president, because of sheer voting power.
Madonsela’s report contained numerous allegations that Zuma and cabinet members could be in breach of laws and ethics if the accusations were found to be true.
Also on Thursday, ANC national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said that the party could not close its eyes to the fact the report “mentioned a number of ANC cadres”.
Kodwa said the report should be used as a foundation for engagement and as another reason for the party to be “intolerant of corruption”
