Zuma’s stubbornness in stepping down serves no-one more than it does the EFF. So says Roelf Meyer, who was a National Party politician and the key negotiator in the peaceful transition from Apartheid to South Africa’s first democratic government led by Nelson Mandela.
According to the Financial Mail; Meyer, who became very close to now deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa during the negotiations and who founded the United Democratic Movement (UDM) back in 1997 believes that the only way for the ANC to ‘restore credibility to the country’ is to have Zuma step down.
He added that the ANC will suffer in this year’s Local Government Elections and that it is the EFF that stands to gain the most from the current situation.
Meyer also said that the sacking of Nhlanhla Nene as finance minister was the “the biggest mistake in recent history”.
