Andrew Donaldson 24 May 2014 Andrew Donaldson asks whether it is not time similar licensing rules were introduced for sangomas BAD news for our young doctors and other health practitioners. It seems that the government can prevent them from opening or even working in private practices wherever they choose. President Jacob Zuma had slyly noted our preoccupation with this fuss about Lindiwe Mazibuko throwing in the towel as the DA's Parliamentary Leader to further her studies abroad and quietly signed into law sections of the National Health Act that now compel medical practitioners to apply to the Department of Health for "a certificate of need" should they wish to work in the suburb of their choice. The certificate, according to news reports, will be compulsory from April 2016 and healthcare workers could face up to five years in prison or a fine if they run a private practice without it. The laws have, of course, raised the hackles of certain sections of the medical profession who see it as yet another e ...
Baleka Mbete protecting Jacob Zuma on Nkandla – Lindiwe Mazibuko 18 April 2014 8:26 ANC national chairperson Baleka Mbete is protecting President Jacob Zuma by using culture to defend corruption behind the security upgrades in Nkandla, DA MP Lindiwe Mazibuko has said. “Her words are nothing more than another failed attempt at excusing the inexcusable and hiding Nkandla behind cultural practices,” Mazibuko said yesterday. She said Mbete was just one of Zuma’s close allies who were tripping over themselves to protect him from accountability. “Earlier today, Ms Mbete was quoted as saying: ‘The issue of a man’s kraal or a kraal of a family is a holy space’ and that ‘in the African tradition you don’t interfere with a man’s kraal’. “This is not only an insensitive misappropriation of our nation’s cultural values, but it is also an affront to the millions of South Africans who are waiting for answers to their questions about the R260 million which was spent on President Zuma’s priv ...
Election news wrap-up: 8 April With the election just weeks away IEC electoral staff has threatened to strike if the commission's chairperson Pansy Tlakula was removed before 7 May. According to the IEC the staff cannot strike as their services were declared essential services by Parliament. Nkandla was all over the news again after National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu decided to set up a multi-party parliamentary committee to consider Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report about costly security upgrades to President Jacob Zuma's private home. It is reported that the investigation will likely be finished before or on 6 May. The DA's Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko welcomed the investigation. The GCIS released a statement earlier stating that the security cluster of ministries asked the Public Protector for "clarity" on certain aspects of her Nkandla report. Comedian and satirist Pieter Dirk Uys urged South African voters to be selfish come 7 May. "I wanted to be a Dutch Reformed Church dominee, a ...
Zuma's Nkandla comments 'an insult' President Jacob Zuma's decision to ignore the recommendations of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela undermines her office, the DA said on Monday. "The DA condemns in the strongest terms President Jacob Zuma’s statement that he has done nothing wrong with respect to Nkandla and won’t repay the money he has been instructed to by... Madonsela," Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said. "This is an insult to every South African who has been deprived because of the redirection of millions of rands to upgrade the president’s private residence in KwaZulu-Natal." The Democratic Alliance had asked its lawyers to consider what steps could be taken to force Zuma to comply with the recommendations in Madonsela's report. The report found that Zuma and his family improperly benefited from the R246m security upgrades to his Nkandla homestead that included a cattle kraal, a swimming pool and an amphitheatre. Zuma 'can't absolve himself from responsibility' On Monday it was report ...
Mazibuko's vow an empty threat, says ANC The ANC says Lindiwe Mazibuko's warning of impeachment against President Jacob Zuma is nothing more than a rhetorical threat. The ANC on Wednesday dismissed Democratic Alliance (DA) Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko's warning to President Jacob Zuma as an empty, rhetorical threat. "We are aware that, with the election looming, some political leaders will blow plenty of hot air at every direction in order to grab as many headlines as possible," ANC chief whip Stone Sizani said in a statement. "There are opposition parties in Parliament who have offered the electorate no alternative or creative ideas since 2009, except to repeatedly call for the president of the country to resign." On Tuesday, Mazibuko vowed to table a motion to impeach Zuma if the Public Protector's report on his private homestead in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal, implicated him in wrongdoing. Speaking in the National Assembly during debate on Zuma's State of the Nation address on Tuesday, she told MPs ...
I am just keeping my finger on the campaign pulse! My views, 83 days before voting day. Kgoshi Maepa 12 February 2014 It must be mentioned that till this end, just 83 days before voting day. The only other political party that has presented a manifesto [i.e. policies] and is running a positive campaign outside the ANC - is the UDM [United Democratic Movement]. The other political parties are playing the blaming game. For instance, the DA [Democratic Alliance]; COPE [Congress of the People]; Agang and the IFP – have all but just blamed the ANC and President Jacob Zuma for every other thing since the campaign season started in October 2013. I think their policy positions are NOT clear or at worse know to the 25 million influential voters – except their continued unpalatable strategy of ‘Blame the ANC and Jacob Zuma’, provoke violence and run a NEGATIVE campaign against the ANC. Unfortunately South Africans are tired of NEGATIVITY and VIOLENCE. Subjectively; opposition parties are running a NEGATIVE ...

(Sapa) Johannesburg - Opposition parties have voiced their concerns after President Jacob Zuma reportedly told supporters he wants to make changes to the Constitution.

President Zuma’s comments on the Constitution an attack on our democracy Lindiwe Mazibuko MP Parliamentary Leader of the Democratic Alliance During the ANC’s 102nd year anniversary celebration yesterday, President Jacob Zuma launched yet another attack on our Constitution. Speaking to members of the community in Mbombela in Mpumalanga, he pleaded to South Africans to vote for the ANC so that the party can gain a two-thirds majority in order to change the Constitution. He also said that the ANC would be in power “forever and ever”. Given President Zuma’s track record of attacks against our constitutional democracy and his growing disregard for constitutional values, it is worrying that he wants complete control over its amendment. It also raises questions about what President Zuma is so eager to change in the Constitution. The South African Constitution is one of the most progressive documents of its kind. While it is a living document and should from time to time be amended to reflect the needs ...
Zuma Cleared in Costly Nkandla Revamp South Africa's government on Thursday cleared President Jacob Zuma of any wrongdoing during a controversial $20-million revamp at his private home, in a move criticised as a whitewash.Unlike a recently leaked watchdog report, the state probe into the spending of 206 million rand (14.5 million euro) on security upgrades at his rural village home handed Zuma the all-clear. "Allegations that the president had used state resources to build or upgrade his personal dwellings are unfounded," Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi told a news conference. The splurge on the house nestled in the verdant hills of Zuma's political stronghold has sparked uproar amid an economic crunch in a country where 10 million live on social grants and many have only tin shacks above their heads. The government report said the state was obligated to beef up security at private presidential residences and justified some of its controversial spending on security risks. This included those posed by a ...

Zuma 'impressed' by Venda women bowing down to him President Jacob Zuma has come under fire for comments he made about Venda women. On Friday, the Mercury reported that President Jacob Zuma came under fire for making comments about Venda women that led to a gesture of "undermining their rights". Talking to hundreds of people in Impendle in the Midlands earlier this week, Zuma addressed the concept of respect, saying people don't respect each other anymore. The paper reported that Zuma was emphasising young women and men must exercise self-respect and respect for others. "When I was in Venda recently I was so impressed to see how people there express respect for other people," he reportedly said. "A woman would clap her hands and even lie down to show respect … I was so impressed. If I was not already married to my wives I would go to Venda to look for a woman." Phumla Ndende, a representative from an Eastern Cape-based support centre criticised the president, saying: "If you express respect in such a wa ...

An inter-ministerial report that exonerates President Jacob Zuma of allowing the misuse of taxpayers' money on the upgrading of his lavish Nkandla homestead has been rubbished as a "cover-up" and "a smack in the face for real accountability". Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi yesterday justified some of the controversial spending on "security upgrading" at Zuma's private residence, which cost the taxpayer R206-million, saying the state had been obliged to undertake the project. The splurge on Nkandla has led to calls for Zuma's resignation or impeachment. Opposition parties have labelled the report a "whitewash" . The inter-ministerial report contrasts sharply with the leaked Public Protector's report, which said that some of the upgrades were "improperly" woven into the project at "enormous cost" to the taxpayer. The protector's provision al report contained a recommendation that Zuma repay some of the money spent on Nkandla. The "security upgrading" included building two helipads, a clinic, a body of w ...
DA leader in Parliament, Lindiwe Mazibuko, has criticised the inter-ministerial report on Nkandla, that has exonerated President Jacob Zuma.
Suspended Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi launched an attack on President Jacob Zuma on Wednesday, saying his administration spectacularly failed to reverse the crisis of unemployment in the country and was turning a blind eye on increasing corruption within government. Addressing a memorial lecture of the late National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) president Mtutuzeli Tom in Boksburg, Vavi questioned the spending of over R200-million in upgrading Zuma's homestead in Nkandla. He also questioned the spending of R65-million on security upgrades of ministers' homes in Cape Town. "As you were preparing for this [Numsa special] congress, the Public Protector issued two damning reports: one on the former minister of communications and the other one on the minister of agriculture. We are aware of a third report that will be released in January. While we are not yet aware of her recommendations, there is no dispute over the fact that well over R200-million was spent on upgrading the secur ...

Replying to the debate on the Presidency’s Budget Vote in June this year, President Jacob Zuma said something which those who are interested in a credible narrative of our past, present and future should say louder than the decibels permitted to a sitting President.   Prompted by the comments of the Democratic Alliance’s Parliamentary Leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko, Zuma protested the distortion of President Nelson Mandela’s image and politics.   He told Mazibuko that she and her party, should also “support what he (Mandela) stood for and what he went to prison for and what he said over the years” and objected to the projection of Mandela as “the only nice ANC man,” arguing that appraisal “must not focus only on Madiba the first President of a democratic South Africa who implemented ANC policies of reconciliation and transformation.”   Instead of a disconnect, there was and is consistency between “Madiba the volunteer-in-chief of the defiance campaign, Madiba the Umkhonto weSizwe comman ...

There are two separate properties at President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla residence, one private and the other state-owned, according to a report released at Parliament on Thursday. "The recognition of the distinction of the... two separate properties is perhaps the most significant issue in [the task team's] investigation and report," the document reads. The special report was tabled by the Joint Standing Committee on Intelligence (JSCI). The task team referred to is the one established in November last year by the ministers of Public Works, police, and state security to probe security upgrades to Zuma's private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal. This was prompted by concerns over the cost - more than R206m - of the upgrades. The task team's report was referred to the JSCI for consideration in June. Security measures In its report on the task team's report on Thursday, the JSCI said the security upgrades at Nkandla were divided into two focus areas.

Detail 'I was denied full access' to key Nkandla documents: Madonsela Nov 14 2013 9:55AM  Dudu Dube Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has made damning claims against state organs she is embroiled with, in a dispute over the release of the Nkandla report. She claims that there were times when she was denied full access to documents, only being given sight for short periods in the presence of government officials. "Key members of the investigation team were excluded from important meetings. Resistance to the investigation was very strong and there were separate attempts by the Minister of Police and thereafter collectively by the Ministers of Public Works and State Security to stop the investigation," she said. Madonsela filed her affidavit in the North Gauteng high court this week, opposing an application by the Justice and Security Cluster to delay the release of the report. The Cluster argues that some aspects in the report could compromise both the state and President Jacob Zuma's safety. But Madonsel ...
JOHANNESBURG - Cabinet ministers are blatantly citing bogus security concerns to delay and ultimately shut down her investigation into President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla residence, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela said in her opposing affidavit handed to the North Gauteng High Court on Wednesday. A cluster of ministers filed an urgent interdict against Madonsela in the courts on Friday to have the report stalled, claiming it contained "a plethora of breaches of state security." Madonsela was tasked with investigating Nkandla in 2011, after receiving several complaints that public funds in excess of R200 million had been misappropriated to build the sizable homestead. The justice, crime prevention and security cluster, made up of Minister of Police Nathi Mthethwa, Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi, Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and Minister of State Security, Siyabonga Cwele, claimed it was not given a fair hearing before Madonsela's report was released.

"There are thousands of people who are lending in Lanseria and OR Tambo airports, I can't be expected to know is lending and why are they here, thats not my business." I mean the President cant compare Waterkloof Air Force Base and OR Tambo. The President continues to be irresponsible and arrogant.
Giggle and gag Gupta show November 7 2013 at 07:44am By Marianne Merten Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma has again denied “prior knowledge, involvement or communication” of the landing of 200 guests at Waterkloof Air Force Base for the Gupta family wedding in May. And when Cope MP Mlindi Nhanha asked if the president knew the identity of “Number One” - the man who officials say gave the go-ahead for the landing - laughter erupted in the parliamentary benches before Zuma responded in Zulu, saying: “Do I know this guy?” It was the president’s last question session in the National Assembly for 2013, and the parliamentary benches were packed. Speaker Max Sisulu repeatedly called for order amid laughter and clapping, and he also called for silence when people in the public gallery applauded. In terms of parliamentary rules the public can attend but not participate in parliamentary proceedings. But if they had hoped the president would spill the beans on Guptagate, DA MPs were frustrated.

DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko wants an investigation into whether President Jacob Zuma misled Parliament about the upgrades to his Nkandla homestead. More at:
(Gordon) Nkandla security upgrades officially classified as top secret Wednesday 26 June 2013 Govt had spent R206 million on security upgrades and consultants at Zuma's private home in Nkandla. Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi says the security upgrades at the private Nkandla home of President Jacob Zuma have been classified as Top Secret in terms of the apartheid-era Protection of Information Act of 1982. Last month, Parliament adopted The Protection of State Information Bill, which is to replace the Act under which the report into the security upgrade was classified. President Zuma is yet to sign the Bill into law. Responding to a written question by the Democratic Alliance's (DA) Chief Whip Watty Watson, Nxesi said the decision to classify the report as Top Secret, was also done in terms of the Minimum Information Security Standards, which are approved Cabinet policy on the Protection of Information. The DA recently asked the Public Works Department for clarification regarding its non-response to an ...
Opposition parties will grill President Jacob Zuma in Parliament, I hope Lindiwe Mazibuko will be dressed up this time.
Buti Manamela said (Parliament): Some people blamed President Jacob Zuma for everything that went wrong in South Africa, "Flights get delayed, blame Zuma. The weather is bad, blame Zuma. The rand is too weak, blame Zuma. There's a cloud on Table Mountain, blame Zuma. The honourable Lindiwe Mazibuko has bad fashion taste and has been arrested by the fashion police, blame Zuma" it's cold today, I also blame Zuma. Lol!
Is Lindiwe Mazibuko now Big headed? Very disapointed about Lindiwe mazibuko:"But Mazibuko, who has been a thorn in the side of the ANC and President Jacob Zuma, declined the offer and instead referred Manamela to DA youth leader Mbali Ntuli - effectively suggesting that the ANC MP was too junior to debate with her.".But im not supriced why she decline after yesterday Manamela speech in parliment was on point.
"I appeal directly to the governing party to spare our country any future damage by not allowing President Jacob Zuma to contest the 2014 general election. South Africa cannot afford one more lost year. If we are consigned to another six years of failed leadership, South Africa may never recover the lost ground. In the life of a nation, rarely has a leader been so personally responsible for setting into motion a chain of crises as this president is. Every major crisis of the last year could have been avoided if the president had exercised principled and selfless leadership." (Opposition Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko, responding to the President's budget vote speech) Exaggerated or not, it seems everything Zuma touches turns to dust. We have much reason to think so. Though how fair is this assessment? Are you South African? What things can he be credited with doing well, particularly on the public policy front? See link:
Cape Town - IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi led male MPs in a salute to former president Nelson Mandela on Wednesday. "God is merciful, and we pray that Madiba will recover," Buthelezi said, speaking in the National Assembly during debate on the presidency's 2013/14 budget. The veteran politician, who turns 85 this year, then asked the men in the House to stand to pay tribute to Madiba. "Ah! Dalibhunga!" he called out, in recognition of Mandela's royal roots. MPs echoed the call. The name Dalibhunga is one reserved for male Xhosa chiefs and princes. Earlier, President Jacob Zuma told MPs that Mandela was responding well to treatment "I am happy to report that Madiba is responding better to treatment from this morning." He said government was "very happy with the progress that he is now making, following a difficult last few days". Mandela has been receiving treatment for a recurring lung infection in the intensive care unit of a Pretoria hospital since Saturday. Zuma said government appreciated the messag ...

Zuma missed opportunity - DA May 30 2013 16:00Sapa Pretoria - A few hours after President Jacob Zuma sought to allay investor fears at an unexpected news briefing on Thursday, the rand dropped to its lowest level in four years. The local currency weakened to R10/$, levels it last reached in March 2009. The opposition Democratic Alliance criticised Zuma's address to the media at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, saying it had been a missed opportunity. DA MP Lindiwe Mazibuko said Zuma should have spoken decisively about the problems facing the economy.

"We therefore hope that the president will ignore her nonsensical letter with the contempt it deserves."

"He must immediately put a stop to the ANC's campaign to discourage investment and destroy jobs through aggressive and irresponsible language and conduct," the letter read. "While Mr Zuma is busy selling South Africa as an investor-friendly market at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, his actions back home, and those of the party he leads, are working towards the opposite goal." However, Motshekga said the letter contained "wild and spurious ...
Zuma’s business call ‘a form of corruption’ January 15 2013 at 07:51am By Michael Mpofu Comment on this story AFP President Jacob Zuma. File photo: AFP Related Stories Mazibuko is not African, says ANC Mazibuko wants Zuma to apologise Cape Town - A legal expert says there has a been a “blurring of the lines between party and state” in co-opting businesses to support the ANC after President Jacob Zuma said business people backing his party would prosper. Advocate Paul Hoffman said on Monday that this kind of arrangement was “another form of corruption”. He was commenting after Zuma – speaking at the ANC’s anniversary gala dinner in Durban on Friday – said business people who supported the ruling party would see their fortunes multiply. “We are not forcing people… you can support who you support and be a supporter, but if you go beyond that and become a member… if you are a businessman, your business will multiply,” Zuma was quoted as saying by the Sunday Times. “Everything you ...

I have never heard President Jacob Zuma this angry in parliament. He was trying to clarify the issue of his newly built compound. He was livid, kwatsi kuyaphendula lokwa Lindiwe Mazibuko kwe DA, Umsholozi cut her down to size, teaching her to ask questions with respect & have the correct information when doing so.

Zuma must get head out of sand - Mazibuko 23 October | 13:34 By Sue Segar Durban - Hot on the heels of another round of negative publicity for South Africa – this time in the influential business journal The Economist – DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko has called on President Jacob Zuma to “get his head out of the sand and get on with the job of leading”, lest he go down in history as the president who broke the economy. She called on Zuma on Monday to urgently address a joint sitting of Parliament to tackle the economic downturn head on, accusing him of being out of touch with reality, following the Presidency’s rejection of the latest cover story in The Economist. The story, headlined “Cry the Beloved Country – South Africa’s Sad Decline”, said Zuma had “drifted and dithered, offering neither vision nor firm government” at a time when the country could fall behind other African countries economically. The report followed the downgrading earlier this month of South Africa’ ...

"President Jacob Zuma lacks both the leadership and determination to turn South Africa into a high-growth economy" - Lindiwe Mazibuko
The ANC of today is a patriarchal organization stuck in the past: Two weeks ago in Parliament, President Jacob Zuma referred to me as “Ntombazana”, an isiZulu word for a “young girl” Says: Lindiwe Mazibuko -
A wrap of the most memorable quotes from the last week, including the insult of a diva spat, President Jacob Zuma saying our nation should not portray itself as fighting forever, and DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko urging Zuma to forego the R203 million upgrade to Nkandla in favour of communities who need it more.
President Jacob Zuma must cancel the upgrade to his Nkandla homestead and spend the money on neighbouring communities, says DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko, at last he said smthng tht make sense
President Jacob Zuma denied on Thursday that his home town had been unfairly advantaged with R1 billion in taxpayers' funds for the Nkandla Mlalazi Smart Growth Centre. Responding to question in the National Assembly, Zuma said he saw no reason why Nkandla should be "punished" because he happened to come from there. "Should they be punished because they are neighbours to Zuma? I don't think that is the correct approach," he said. "Developing that area does not trouble me, it makes me very proud." Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko asked how the president could justify spending money in an area "just 3.2km from your homestead" when other impoverished parts of KwaZulu-Natal were left without basic services. She said within a 100km radius, villages like Ebizimali and Eqhudeni lacked water and electricity. Zuma responded by naming 23 poor districts nationwide which had been identified by government as recipients of upliftment programmes. "Development goes where it goes at a given time," ...
It seems President Jacob Zuma's 'minority' remarks while responding to a question from Lindiwe Mazibuko have landed him in crap.Eish!

Lekota takes the spoils in hot debate on NDP plan  Comment on this story August 17 2012 at 08:00am If there were a parliamentary hero this week, the cup for best performer must surely go to Cope leader Mosiuoa “Terror” Lekota. While the opposition party leaders lined up to praise Minister in the Presidency Trevor Manuel for overseeing the scripting of the National Development Plan (NDP), Lekota performed like a star in the joint debate on Wednesday: of the National Council of Provinces and the National Assembly, of the plan. He suited the role perfectly. As a former national chairman of the governing ANC, Lekota knows a thing or two about the party he belonged to. One could tell that he had read the internal politics of the parliamentary ANC caucus perfectly. One could almost detect Manuel, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and President Jacob Zuma squirm. A parliamentary camera caught Manuel with a fixed grimace, much like a hotly contested election candidate who has just heard of his defeat at t ...
