MATOME LETSOALO wrote: Dave Steward is the Executive Director of the FW De Klerk Foundation. He recently published an article in Independent Online titled ‘Excoriating whites not the way to go’, in protest of President Zuma and others’ continual lambasting of whites as the cause for all that bad in South Africa. This complaint was sparked in response to the recent ANC’s 103rd birthday celebrations held in Cape Town, at which the historical founder of the Cape Colony Jan Van Riebeeck was thoroughly vilified and denounced. Mr. Dave Steward proceeds to state his issue against the ANC’s insistence that the arrival of whites in Southern Africa was disastrous to the indigenous inhabitants. He disproves this by adding matter-of-factly that Van Riebeeck had “strict instructions not to colonize the Cape and stayed for only 10 years before moving on.” But then everybody else didn’t ‘move on’, but they formed a colony, with magistrates, civil servants and ‘land lords’. This was orchestrated b ...
15 January 2015 ACDP Parliament Open Letter to President Jacob Zuma By Cheryllyn Dudley, MP and Whip Open Letter TO President Jacob Zuma Dear Mr President, The ACDP commends you on your anti-terrorism stand and we call on you to urgently withdraw Leila Khaled's visa. The ACDP is concerned that the convicted and jailed hijacker, Leila Khaled, a member of the terror organisation Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) has been granted a visa to visit South Africa to make a public speaking tour in February. We also call on the Ministers of Home Affairs and International Relations to investigate the situation. Before the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, President Zuma said after a terrorist attack on the Togolese soccer team in Angola that it “should serve as impetus for the African continent and the world at large to work even harder to rid the world of terrorist activity and violence wherever it surfaces”. Last week Government joined the international community in condemning the terror ...
AFRICA DEFINE YOURSELF: THE ASCENDING OF President Robert Mugabe INTO THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE African Union FOR 2015, GIVES PRESIDENT ZUMA AND South AfricA AN ADVANTAGEOUS OPPORTUNITY TO TRACTION THEIR LEADERSHIP ROLE IN DEMANDING THE REFORM OF UN SECURITY COUNCIL By Senzo Scholar President Jacob Zuma is serving his last term as an executive president of the Republic of South Africa. Same applies to President Robert Mugabe, the age has somewhat compelled him to serve his last term as the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe. Accordingly this is the very last chance for both President Zuma and Mugabe to spearhead the African Union Assembly. It is more interesting and exciting for Pan Africanists, the fact that President Robert Mugabe will be the chairperson of the African Union for year 2015. The Chairperson of the African Union Commission is Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma for year 2015-16. This therefore place South African Development Community SADC to be the most influential block within the African Union ...
President Zuma of South Africa appoints Special Envoy to Nigeria to get TB Joshua victims's bodies back -
Senzo Meyiwa: S African footballer's funeral to be held TENS of thousands of mourners are expected to attend the funeral of South African football captain Senzo Meyiwa in Durban on Saturday. Meyiwa, 27, was shot on Sunday, apparently after burglars entered his girlfriend's house near Johannesburg. A suspect appeared in court on Friday and was charged with the murder of the popular goalkeeper. Meyiwa's death shocked South Africa and has highlighted the high rates of violent crime in the country. The funeral is due to take place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Meyiwa's hometown of Durban, with mourners expected from across the country. The funeral of another South African sporting hero, former 800m world champion Mbulaeni Mulaudzi, will also take place on Saturday. Mulaudzi was killed in a car accident the day before Meyiwa's death. Minister Jeff Radebe is expected to deliver the eulogy at the funeral. President Zuma has also ordered the national flag to be flown at half-mast on Saturday to honour the goalk ...

South Africa finds itself at the political crossroads,this as the vulgarisation of parliament continues unabated. The latest EFF antics,in which its chief whip Floyd Shivambu showed Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa the middle finger,exposes the new party as nothing but disgruntled political hooligans.In spite of the fact that the anc has been reduced to a vehicle for defending President Zuma-to the extent of using bums- the EFF shenanigans cannot be condoned. As it happened with COPE,that was also formed by disgruntled ANC members,the EFF was born out of bitterness. This was after its current leader Julius Malema and his ANCYL cohorts were expelled. It should be borne in mind that Ramaphosa presided over the forum that decided the fate of Malema and his supporters. Last year's Marikana massacre and Ramaphosa's role in it have provided Malema and his party with the ammunition to vent against the Deputy President and settle old scores. The tragedy of it all is that people were fooled under the guise of econ ...
Democratic Alliance SA Today by Helen Zille Leader of the DA SA Today: Time to unravel the Spy Tapes tangle Earlier this year I read an article quoting Senzo Mchunu, Premier of KwaZulu Natal and Zuma loyalist, predicting that when the infamous “spy tapes” were eventually released, South Africa would learn that “there is nothing (in them) after all”. Premier Mchunu was clearly confident that this would be good news for President Zuma, who would then be off the hook of his corruption charges, yet again. The Premier may well be right that “there is nothing” in the tapes “after all”. But he seems unaware that this would be dreadful news for President Zuma -- and devastating for the National Prosecuting Authority, particularly its former acting Director, Mokotedi Mpshe (who took the decision to withdraw the charges, paving the way for Jacob Zuma to become President in 2009). This is because Advocate Mpshe, now a Judge, has always maintained that the contents of the tapes were explosive, demon . ...

Democratic Alliance Press Statement by Thomas Walters MP Shadow Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Land Bills: President is showing disregard for Section 79 of the Constitution The DA is deeply concerned that President Zuma has signed the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Bill and the Property Valuation Bill into law despite having received a petition from the DA to refer this proposed legislation back to the National Assembly in terms of Section 79 of the Constitution. He has done this without demonstrating that he took these constitutional concerns seriously, and has not communicated with Members of Parliament adequately regarding the petition. I will be writing to both the President and the State Law Advisor in order to determine whether the President fully applied his mind to the content of the bills before signing them, and I will furthermore request proof of the legal opinion which President Zuma should have requested if he did indeed do so. The passing of these two bills indicates the ...
Zuma's cattle eat KFC: Maimane Sapa | 16 June, 2014 President Jacob Zuma leads a lavish lifestyle while South Africa's youth are living in squalor, DA Parliamentary Leader Mmusi Maimane said on Monday. "You are often told that 'we are moving South Africa forward'. Forward to what? To unemployment, poverty and nyaope?" Maimane asked at a Youth Day rally in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria. "Where are the jobs, President Zuma? While we are struggling here, it is all pleasurable in Nkandla. Their cattle eat KFC." He said the money spent on the Nkandla upgrades should have been used to construct school classrooms with technology. "If you are 18 today, your chances of finding work are getting less and less under the current government. A job is a first step out of poverty. It is a step towards freedom. "This week President Zuma will be delivering his state-of-the-nation address. I want him to tell us where the jobs will come from.

Press Statement: BOOST TOURISM TRADE CONFIDENCE BY IMPROVING INTER-GOVERNMENTAL RELATIONS For Immediate Release: Pretoria, 23 June 2014: The Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) has welcomed the State of the Nation Address by President Zuma with a request for Government to prioritise inter-governmental/business relations and creating an enabling environment for the travel and tourism trade. TBCSA Chief Executive Officer, Mmatšatši Ramawela said the trade welcomed the SONA’s consistent feature of the travel and tourism industry, saying this sends a strong message about Government’s regard for the industry.“We welcome the Presidents’ consistent profiling of travel and tourism in his speeches. To us it’s a demonstration of the increased coverage and attention the industry is receiving within Government. Ramawela emphasised the need for Government to create a conducive environment for the trade, highlighting the need to improve inter-governmental relations as one of the main challenge ...
South Africa Denies Zuma Health Rumors South African President Jacob Zuma delivers his State of the Nation address at Parliament in Cape Town, South Africa, June 17, 2014. Peter Clottey : June 22, 2014 The spokesman for South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has dismissed reports the country’s leader is in poor health, following his recent visit to the hospital. President Zuma spent two days in a hospital after the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party said it gave the leader a break following a “hectic campaigning” period before the May 7 general election. Mac Maharaj insists Zuma is in good health and has been working hard and long hours at the office. His comments followed a local newspaper report, which cited sources from the ANC suggesting Zuma is suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes and heart problems. Maharaj rejected the newspaper report as rumor mongering. “The doctors attending to the president are satisfied, there is no reason or cause to be concerned about his health,” ...

In South Africa, MP and EFF Leader Julius Malema was on fire when he gave his first official speech in the South African Parliament. On jobs, he said something very sensible which confirms the truth that in both South Africa and Zimbabwe, the ruling President Zuma and President Mugabe respectively have dismally failed to create the much needed jobs: says Malema: "You promised jobs before and you have repeatedly failed to create jobs. In your first address to this house as President, you promised to create 500 000 jobs in six months and you failed, and no one held you accountable. Our people are being called upon to celebrate 20 years of freedom, and we really do not know what they should celebrate, because the past 20 years has been 20 years of suffering for the poorest of the poor. It has been 20 years of joblessness and unemployment for majority of our people, in particular the youth. 35% of South Africans capable of working are unemployed and majority of those who are employed are paid very low salarie ...
Democratic Alliance Press Statement by Ian Ollis MP DA Shadow Minister of Labour SA’s labour crisis: Where’s Minister Oliphant The recent rise in labour unrest across the country suggests that government, particularly the Minister of Labour, Mildred Oliphant, and President Zuma are not doing enough to facilitate efficient labour bargaining practices, prevent strikes and save jobs. It is particularly worrying that the Minister is missing from negotiations in the ongoing strike in the platinum belt. Over the past year South Africa has experience protracted and economically crippling strikes across numerous sectors, ranging from the mining and farming to municipal and even education sectors. Minister Oliphant has failed to comment - let alone intervene - on most of these. Instead of addressing the elephant in the room, the ANC tried to ram the Labour Relations Amendment (LRA) Bill through Parliament during the last term, and blocked the DA’s attempts to include a ‘secret ballot’ amendment that woul ...
PRETORIA NEWS PHUMLA WILLIAMS 3 JUNE 2014 HUGE GAINS FROM SMALL BUSINESS MINISTRY The voters have spoken and chosen President Jacob Zuma to serve South Africa as president for the next five years. On 24 May 24 President Zuma was inaugurated for his second term as the fifth democratically elected President of the Republic of South Africa. He and his administration now in their positions are entrusted with moving the country into the third decade of freedom. He has stated that radical economic transformation and inclusive growth will be key priorities over the next term. He has reaffirmed that government will respond decisively to the triple challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality in South Africa. Speaking at his inauguration, he stated: “Economic transformation will take centre-stage during this new term of government as we put the economy on an inclusive growth path.” His words were premised on the understanding that the fight against apartheid was not only about political freedom, but inte ...
HYPOCRACY OF A BLACK BASS When campaigning for the zuma African National Congress in the township where I was born and bred, Seshego during the Independent Electoral Commission’s Registration weekend, President’s Zuma Deputy, Cyril Ramaphosa said to some voters that they should vote for the z ANC in order to avoid the rule by “Boers”. This remark is what he said, and not quoted out of context as the Spin doctors in Luthuli House would like the people of South Africa to believe. South Africa is now used to President Zuma, and now his Deputy saying and doing things and later statements coming from their offices to claim that they did not say or mean what they in actual sense said and meant. The “Boers” statement by Ramaphosa clearly undermines the political understanding and intelligence of the people of Seshego, Limpopo and South Africa as a whole, but primarily, it is a sign of hypocrisy and dishonesty. While we agree that during the liberation struggle, the word “Boer” meant the repressiv ...
Democratic Alliance Press Statement by James Selfe MP Chairperson of the DA Federal Executive The ANC’s about-turn on Nkandlagate is a predictable move Reports today indicate that the Ministers in the Security Cluster have now decided not to pursue the dubious legal action against the Public Protector, Adv Thuli Madonsela for the damning report against President Jacob Zuma released earlier this year. These Ministers had been carrying out a clear mandate directly from Luthuli House to protect President Zuma from accountability after the scandal involving R246 million expenditure on his Nkandla home exploded and became one of the biggest corruption scandals in democratic South Africa. The idea was to delay and disrupt this investigation for as long as possible so that this issue would not affect the ANC’s ambitions for the general elections. This court action had been used as a scarecrow and was a chilling move even from a government that is being used to protect one man from scrutiny. This was a clear ...
This morning is the inauguration of President Zuma to another term as leader of South Africa's government. The people have spoken and our democracy is strong. But I have two questions. I'd love answers to both of these from those who voted ANC and those in the know: 1. Are ANC voters proud of their President, and if so, of what achievements and characteristics in particular? 2. Do the members of the ANC National Executive really believe that Jacob Zuma is the best person they have for leader of the party and government?
Jacob Zuma NEED GOD TO LEAD South AfricA: After doing Politics and School-work.I take my Bible and Jacket and hit straight to Church of God...Thats where my Wisdom comes from.The priviledge of Being a Christian,Politician,Wise and Intellectual...The highest Intelligence comes from God which is"Wisdom" King Solomon after his appointment,God asked him to choose one thing in his leadership time and he said"God give me Wisdom" Elisha was asked by Elijah to ask one thing and he said"I need double portion of your annointing" President Zuma should do the same,Factions will never deliver South Africa from crisis. James One verse 5. President Jacob Zuma you need God to lead South Africa.
He once said "The problem in this country is Thabo Mbeki and his people" He said " I will fight for President Zuma, I will kill for President Zuma and I will die fro president Zuma" He said " ANC will rule South Africa for ever " He said " I'm sorry South Africa for giving you a none-thinker a non-reader" He said " There are no brains in Nkandla" He said " my bold is green and gold and I will die in the ANC" He said " Supporting Jacob Zuma was a mistake of his life-time" He said “There is no organization called ANC in South Africa, it is a former organization. What we have now is ZANC, is Zuma ANC. ANC ended with President Mbeki." He said "President Mandela is sick and you don't want to contribute to a worsening condition of Mandela by not voting ANC. President Mandela will never endure if the ANC is out of power." He said " Sorry for replacing Mbeki with nothing" Namhlanje uthetha enye

Extracts from my speech at a UDM Elections Rally at Gompo Community Hall, Duncan Village, East London ... It is astounding that the African National Congress (ANC) had the audacity to “reroute” millions of taxpayers’ money into building a lodge for President Zuma; and they go into defence-mode and try to justify ridiculous things, such as the need to have a swimming pool, just in case one of the thatched roofs catches fire. Who are they kidding? President Zuma, is an ANC deployee; in other words the citizen of South Africa did not elect him to power. The next question that springs to mind is: “Why are they treating him differently?” - especially given how they unceremoniously got rid of President Mbeki, albeit for different reasons. ... Many South Africans are sickened by the flagrant arrogance of the president and his party. They hold the Public Protector in blatant contempt and, without any shame, hurl personal insults at Advocate Madonsela. ... It is common knowledge that this province is he ...

People BOO when they don’t like someone. I write this letter as a fed up citizen of South Africa. ANC is the organization I entrusted with my vote and support in 1994. Being the biggest political organisation at the time, ANC had paid its dues to be the organisation that governed our people. There were many political parties who liberated us…a fact you like to blatantly ignore. The liberation of black people in this country happened because black people as a whole had had enough and not because ANC was our ’messiah.’ You are the organisation we CHOSE to lead us…something you have now taken for granted.

President Zuma no longer has the moral authority to lead - it's time to go - The scathing report of the Public Protector on the so-called Nkandla “upgrades” probably marks one of the darkest moments in the history our country since the advent of democracy in 1994. The findings that President Zuma has once again violated the Executive Members Ethics Code through his failure to act in protection of state resources, that he tacitly accepted the implementation of all measures at his residence and has unduly benefited from the enormous capital investment, must be offensive to any nation that takes pride in the values espoused in its constitution. … Advocate Madonsela’s report exposes the conspicuous lack of shame of the ruling party, its ministers and its leaders. The Comrades in Corruption have a propensity to deceive the citizenry in defence of its susceptible president and each other. … The ANC’s continued disregard of the many voices of conscience, inside and outside its ranks, and failure to p ...

For a long time now the ANC and its leaders like President Zuma and Julias Malema of the Youth League have been singing songs about killing whites, such as “Kill the Boers; Kill the farmers” and “Bring me my machine gun”. They keep on trying to convince us that these are harmless struggle songs and part of their culture despite the court ruling that it is not only hate-speech, but also enticing violence and calling for genocide of the white people in South Africa. Despite the ongoing violent crime in South Africa there is also the mass protest of ANC supporters against the ANC and the po ...
STATEMENT ON THE DEATH OF MARTHA MAHLANGU The African National Congress has learnt with deep sadness of the passing away of Mama Martha Mahlangu, the mother of the late Solomon Kalushi Mahlangu today, Wednesday 12 March 2014 at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria. This happens after President Zuma had gone to visit her at the hospital on Monday. A freedom fighter in her own right, who earned her stripes in the struggle for liberation, mama Martha Mahlangu experienced extreme humiliation at the brutal hands of the apartheid regime, was constantly harassed by the police and security agents throughout the long periods before and after the execution of her son, Solomon at the gallows in April 1979. A patron of Zakheni Women Organisation, an affiliate of FEDTRAW and United Democratic Front, Mama Mahlangu played a major role in supporting families of those who were facing execution at the gallows and was a tremendous pillar of strength to the community, as someone who has also experienced the trauma of ...
Central Africa: Great Lakes Summit Recommits to Peace, Stability Pretoria — The 5th Ordinary Summit of the International Conference of the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) has concluded in Luanda, Angola, with leaders recommitting to bring about peace and stability in the region, especially in the conflict countries. The summit, which President Jacob Zuma attended, looked at the conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic (CAR), and South Sudan. The leaders resolved to have reviewed their implementation of the ICGLR Pact on Security, Stability and Development in the Great Lakes Region and the United Nations (UN) Framework for Peace, Security and Cooperation for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Region. President Zuma said South Africa was invited to observe and participate in the summit since South Africa was one of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries that have contributed to the UN Stabilisation Mission in the DRC (MONUSCO).

Bloemfontein – President Jacob Zuma, as Commander-in-Chief of the South African National Defence (SANDF), today honoured and paid tribute to the selfless men and women in uniform at home and abroad. “We are truly proud of your contribution to making South Africa a much better place to live in now, than it was before 1994,” President Zuma said at the Armed Forces Day celebrations, held in Bloemfontein. He also paid tribute to the fallen soldiers who died during the execution of their duties in other countries. The mission to assist in the post conflict in the Central African Republic (CAR) Army had seen relative success and loss of lives. In March last year, after being ambushed, SANDF members were unfortunately caught in the crossfire and had no choice but to defend their base and protect lives. “Despite the sad and unfortunate loss of 15 of our members, our soldiers accounted well for themselves in military combat terms. “It is our view that the true account of the battle of Bangui still needs ...
The Schabir Shaik trial revealed that President Zuma was more broke than an Alexandra rat. He was practically insolvent and could not meet any of his financial obligations. Since he was never sequestered, he never underwent rehabilitation. The Honourable M.P. Lekota MP, made an interesting observation in parliament that during the tenure of former President Mbeki M.T, the Republic of South Africa almost did not owe anybody, and the fourth administration under President Zuma J.G, owes almost a trillion Rands. Now, that should be expected. An unrehabilitated insolvent is automatically disqualified from parliament according to the laws of the republic. This simply says that such a person cannot become president as a president is elected from among the members of the National Assembly. The ANC has given us a president who was practically, not legally, insolvent. An insolvent person cannot run his/her finances. If you cannot run your own finances, how on this earth can you run the finances of a Nation? His Exc ...

After Chris Hani , the only other political leader who has effectively and fearlessly challenged and opposed ANC and President Zuma in recent times is none other than Julius Malema.

Meeting the Cowboy Turned Renegade Missionary: William Cullen Wilcox Kumalo, Simangaliso URI: 2013-08 Abstract: The Rev. William Cullen Wilcox is a relatively unknown missionary of the American Board Mission. He left an indelible legacy in South Africa as an initiator of mission stations, a land activist, and mentor to John Langalibalele Dube, the first president of the African National Congress. He lived and worked in South Africa for over 40 years after which he returned home to California with nothing to show for his work among the poor black people of South Africa whom he had served. It was only seventy years later that his story was brought to the attention of the South African church and government, which led to President Zuma bestowing on him the order of the Companions of Oliver Tambo. This article offers a brief profile of Rev Wilcox as a progressive political missionary and highlights his contribution to the struggle of the African people for self-determination. In recognition for such support, ...
Democratic AllianceDA will take fight for 6 million REAL jobs to Luthuli HouseHelen ZilleLeader of the DAOn Tuesday the 4th of February, I will lead six thousand DA supporters in a march to Luthuli House, the ANC’s headquarters in central Johannesburg. Each DA supporter will represent 1,000 unemployed South Africans who will benefit from the 6 million REAL jobs that the DA will create if elected to national government.We are taking the fight to Luthuli House to highlight the failure of Jacob Zuma’s ANC to cut corruption and create jobs. And we will expose Jacob Zuma’s manifesto promise of 6 million “work opportunities” as bogus. These are not real jobs. They are temporary Public Works placements that will do little to grow the economy and lift people out of poverty permanently and sustainably.This is not the first time that President Zuma has misled the people of South Africa with a false jobs promise. When he was elected President in 2009, Jacob Zuma promised to create 5 million more jobs. Inst ...
President Zuma defends Bafana Bafana President Jacob Zuma has defended the South Africa team after their African Nations Championship group stage exit. The side of locally based players was called "useless" and a "bunch of losers" by the country's sports minister Fikile Mbalula. Zuma told a South African radio station: "The fact that the team lost, that doesn't mean anything as other teams lost as well. "Some want the team disbanded. It has improved greatly and needs support." South Africa have failed to qualify for any tournament they have not hosted since 2008 Hosts South Africa were knocked out of the tournament after they lost 3-1 to Nigeria in Cape Town.(from BBC News)
Mandela Legacy Betrayed by Family and Country A South African Trilogy: Part III - Why Mandela Has Not Been Allowed to Die Added by Graham Noble on September 29, 2013. Saved under Graham Noble, Nelson Mandela, Op-ed, Rebecca Savastio, South Africa, World This is neither the website of, nor affiliated in any way with, Guardian News and Media. Nelson Mandela, Madiba; the Father of the Nation; the revered icon who, after almost three decades in prison, emerged to lead his nation out of the darkness of Apartheid and into the light of democracy, freedom and reconciliation. That great legacy, however, has been betrayed by his family and by those who now lead his country; men and women who owe their success, their wealth, their very positions to him. Nelson Mandela is gone. He is no longer with us.

The 21st Movement was born of the desire by Zimbabweans to free their country from the Mugabe tyranny. It started with the mass demonstrations at all the South African Embassies, Consulate Missions, Union Buildings and Parliament on Jan 21, 2012, hence the name 21st Movement. South Africa was targeted because of its mediation role in the Zimbabwe negotiations. The Global Political Agreement of February 11, 2009 was a brainchild of former South African President Thabo Mbeki through his quite diplomacy approach to solving the Zimbabwean crisis. The GPA was signed after Mugabe lost the presidential elections in 2008 and refused to vacate his position. The GPA was guaranteed by SADC and South Africa has maintained the mediation status with the current President Jacob Zuma. 21st Movement aims to force President Zuma to enforce the GPA reforms that were agreed to by the three Zimbabwean parties MDC-T, Zanu PF and MDC-N. The Movement continued with demonstrations on the 21st of each month for 18 months straight ...
BLACK PEOPLE ARE COWARDS: (Oh yes, I have said it, come at me with guns blazing, I will stand my ground) I wish this was the 70's, when black people could stand up to any nonsense that whites and other non-progressive people threw at us. Black people then, stood up united and defended themselves. Today black people (I should say some black people, but I will deliberately not use the word "some" because we, as black people are collectively guilty for the big sin of kowtowing to white people and the media and allowing them to run rough shod over us in their mad rush to destroy and decimate President Jacob Zuma. They have taken some of his most harmless utterances and made them into powerful bombs intended to dismantle him from the throne of being President of South Africa. And those among us, who also hate him, have hidden behind the massive camouflages of hate that the white media is throwing at President Zuma and in the process have disengaged themselves from messages and words commonly used by blacks, t ...
SA union wants President Zuma to resign *President Zuma National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA), on Wednesday in Boksburg near Johannesburg has called for the resignation of President Jacob Zuma. The over 338,000 member union is the largest affiliate of the Congress of South African Trade Unions, an umbrella body of unions and powerful ally of the African National Congress (ANC). It was gathered from agency reports that this is coming one week after Zuma was heckled and booed in front of many world leaders and a global television audience at Nelson Mandela’s Memorial Service. The union President, Andrew Chirw, at a special national congress questioned why their members should continue voting for the ruling ANC when the party had abandoned the “Freedom Charter’’, its founding document. He added that the spending of 20 million dollars of public funds on Zuma’s private Nkandla residence should be reason enough for him to “resign in the interests of the poor”. Chirw stressed that ...

Nelson Mandela funeral: Live Report (AFP) – 3 minutes ago Qunu (South Africa) — 0701 GMT: Ahmed Kathrada, who was jailed along with Mandela, now addresses the ceremony. He contrasts the Mandela he first met 67 years ago with the sick man he encountered in hospital last time he saw him. "What I saw in hospital was a man helpless and reduced to a shadow of himself and now the inevitable has happened," he says. "He has left us to join the A-team of the ANC." 0654 GMT: Chief Matanzima, who spoke on behalf of the family, thanked the army medics who took care of the icon while he was treated at home and during his hospital stay. He asked them to stand up. Mourners applauded. "You did a great job in taking care of our father, we can?t thank you enough for that," said Matanzima. 0644 GMT: Among others at the service are South African former President Thabo Mbeki. He has ruffled some feathers in the last week by asking whether the current crop of South African leaders including President Zuma are living up to ...
Under the leadership of President Jacob Zuma, we had a long term plan for 2013 than took a role in South Africa, South Africa was regognise by the world in the year of 2013 under the leadership of President Zuma, by the time Mr. Mandela was a President of the Nation Mr. Zuma was a National Chairperson of the ANC, he was the 1 who was in charge during the Meeting of the NEC at Luthuli House. He was the 1 who directed the NEC until he was elected the Deputy President in 1997 in Mahikeng while Comrade Winnie was contesting Mr. Mbheki but Mr. Zuma calm Comrade Winnie not to Stand.
Moral values I continue to embrace is to honor Tata Nelson Mandela for his selfless sacrifice for our beloved country, the booing Criminals organized by Julius was disastrous @ FNB & his masters of darkness, we must continue to feed our people with a humble pie, when Commander In Chief of armed forces speaks we maintain a full discipline, that was a disrespectful way to say goodbye to Nelson Mandela..Mandela never cherished ideas of ill-discipline & hooliganism, he cherished reconciliation, unity, respect, humanity & above all political tolerance..

"people of South Africa, let us not be fooled by Media imbalances about the report of Honourable President Zuma's Nkandla Homestead. What I cn say there is no public protecting party that has yet reported President Jacob Zuma guilty of any charge.. People of SA plz Dnt say president Zuma is corrupt out of nothing or undr no circumstances of proven charges. The media is just fooling you because you're not even sure whethr the leaks are frm th Public Protector's Office or not. There's just this political and media intervention in ths regard. Please stay calm its not over for South Africa even though Tata is gone but we will live his legacy. President Zuma joined th NEC in th years whn Chief Albert Luthuli was the president Of the ANC.he worked wth Madiba for that radical change and former president Madiba knew him very well.

Sad but true. Respect is truly earned! Moretele Journal had this to say on how the world looks at the ANC based on the booing of President Zuma. Why the crowd booed their own president during his Mandela tribute (This article was published in one of the biggest newspaper in Europe) The crowd at Nelson Mandela's tribute booed South Africa's current president, Jacob Zuma, as he took the stage to have his say this morning. For those around the world paying close attention to the proceedings, it was a fleeting glimpse at the massive failures of the ruling African National Congress (ANC)— the party Nelson Mandela championed during his life. Mandela will take more than just an incredible legacy of fighting for justice with him to the grave, he will take with him a country's moral center and a major source of legitimacy for the party he lead, the ANC. The ANC was the political force that brought South Africa out of apartheid, and Mandela's involvement started in 1944, when he was in his mid-20s. He helped foun ...
It's Madiba's Memorial Service tomorrow - the biggest one day event that South Africa will ever witness. No doubt President Zuma will deliver the keynote address. Speculative questions: 1. Who will be the Programme Director(s)? 2. Which LOCAL ARTIST(S) will perform? 3. What about INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS? 4. Which INTERNATIONAL GUESTS will be given the loudest applause? 5. Which INTERNATIONAL LEADER will be offered the platform to speak? 6. Which MEMBER(S) of the MANDELA FAMILY will perform some duties? 7. Which SONG will President Zuma lead us in? 8. Will the song HAMBA KAHLE MKHONTO feature in the proceedings? What about the lyrics: "thina bafana bo Mkhonto sizimisele ukuwabulala wona lamaBhunu"?

President of the Republic of South Africa, Jacob Zuma has congratulated Bafana Bafana after their famous 1-0 victory over Spain in an international friendly match played at Soccer City on Tuesday night (19 November 2013). This was the fourth meeting between Bafana Bafana and Spain; the World champions having won all three previous encounters – a World Cup match in Korea/Japan in 2002 and two 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup matches. What was meant to be a celebration for the visitors turned to disappointment as a determined Bafana Bafana turned the applecart upside down. At half-time President Zuma relived the lifting the of the World Cup trophy with Spain captain Iker Casillas on the pitch. But that is where the celebration ended for Spain as Bernard Parker scored the only goal of the match shortly after the restart to hand Spain a shock defeat. President Zuma led a huge delegation of dignitaries to the Bafana Bafana dressing room to personally thank and shake the hands of each and every member of the team ...
Kabila opens doors to SA companies Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) President Joseph Kabila has told South African companies that his country is open for business and investment. He was addressing over hundred local business people during the South Africa-DRC Business Forum in the Congolese capital Kinshasa. The business delegation was accompanying President Jacob Zuma on his state visit to the Southern African country. During his stay in the Congo, President Zuma witnessed the signing of the multi-billion rand hydro-power project. The 80 billion US dollar Grand Inga Dam Project will have the capacity to power almost half of the continent with huge investment opportunities for South African companies. Growing the economy remains South Africa's main priority. Africa's largest economy has cut its growth forecast for 2013 to as low as 2.2% as mining strikes and the economic downturn in the Eurozone curb exports. This is lower than a February estimate of 2.7% and down from a 2.5% expansion last year. The co ...

The office of the South African President, Jacob Zuma, has apologised for remarks he made about Malawi. On Monday, while discussing plans for toll roads around Johannesburg, President Zuma implied Malawi was a backward country. Malawi has summoned South Africa's High Commissioner to explain the comments. Mr Zuma's spokesman Mac Maharaj apologised and said he was withdrawing them. -BBC
Speaking at the UN General Assembly, President Zuma expressed displeasure over the slow pace of reform of the UN organ particular the UNSC.

Full Response to Mangcu's Article Xolela Mangcu’s supposed berating of the YCLSA led protests against US President Barack Obama and of President Zuma for not being a Nelson Mandela by chiding the “opposition of militants in his party”, in his “Obama no enemy of ours” (City Press, 30 June 2013, pg 21) is clearer evidence that indeed Mangcu has lost his compass. “True, Obama has not turned out to be the leader of the free world we wanted. But we would do well to remind ourselves that the man is the president of the US…” Mangcu writes before he asked “is it because he is a brother” in reference to his ill informed view that no one protested against George W. Bush on his visit to our shores (one of my first protest action on international issues, ironically, was when President George W Bush visited South Africa back in 2003). According to Mangcu, since the Guantanamo Bay, the Cuba’s economic embargo, imprisonment of the Cuban 5 do not affect us directly, we must just shut up and be merry ...
The Grand Coalition that will see Welshman Ncube and Dumiso Dabengwa withdrawing their application to enter the presidential race deals a body blow to Robert Mugabe who was largely banking on split votes in MAtebeleland. Strategies are now very few if not none on the part of Robert Mugabe to the extent that he has threatened to pull out of SADC,a regional bloc that gave him political life in 2008 when he got beaten right centre left in a tightly contested presidential race by the man of the people Morgan Richard Tsvangirai. Not only did Robert threatened to pull out but he went on to label Lindiwe Zulu,President Zuma's International Relations adviser an idiotic street woman. That alone is the same as insulting President Jacob Zuma as the former speaks on behalf of the latter. I was eagerly waiting to hear the response from South Africa and SADC. Diplomatic as she is known,Lindiwe remained unmoved and only indicated that fighting back will not solve the Zimbabwean situation. respect a fool to avoid noise w ...
Just when you thought things couldn't get any stranger, here is a peek at several of today's leading news stories. The other day, the President gave a speech stating that the United States was going to give South Africa $7 billion for their domestic energy production. I seem to recall something called "the sequester," which has closed the White House to visitors, boogered with the Federal Aviation Administration, and various other symbolic and relatively important things. Apparently, that doesn't apply to Presidential promises while made on vacation in foreign countries during the week of our Independence. Later, when taking questions from the media with South African President Zume, President Obama warned the American reporters to "behave." President Obama confided to President Zuma that he doesn't have the same problems with "his media." Geese, I never noticed. Just last week, the President announced that we will be "waging a war against coal." You may note that since Indiana doesn't have any nuclear po ...
South Africa: Mandela's health in critical condition The presidency of South Africa announced Sunday evening that the former president Nelson Mandela, who was lying in the hospital 16 days ago with pneumonia is in "critical" 24 hours ago. The presidency said President Jacob Zuma and Deputy President of the ruling party Cyril رامافوزا and Graca Machel, wife of Mandela met on Sunday evening at the hospital to discuss the situation. The statement quoted President Zuma as saying that "doctors are doing everything they can in order to improve his condition and they are keen to be thrown Madiba well and efficient treatment. It between the hands." Madiba, the name that expressed by the citizens of South Africa, the former president affectionately nicknamed, lying in the hospital for 16 days after you have inserted him after suffering from pneumonia. And Saturday, the South African presidency broke a week-long silence and said that Mandela "in a serious but stable condition," and after we confirmed the ne ...

DA challenges Minister to re-establish anti-drug and gang units - Dianne Kohler-Barnard, DA Shadow Minister of Police The DA notes comments made by the Minister of Police, Nathi Mthethwa and President Jacob Zuma during the weekend on the impact of drugs on the youth in South Africa. We challenge the Minister and President Zuma to put their words into action and re-establish the anti-drug and gang units disbanded by the then Police Commissioner, Jackie Selebi. Drug-related crime has increased by 181% from 62 689 in 2003/2004 to 176 307 in 2011/2012 since these units were disbanded in 2004. At the weekend, the Minister said that drug crime and abuse is a serious problem and could pose a bigger threat to the country’s future than HIV/Aids. He also noted that there are increasing links between drugs and gangs. These sentiments were echoed by President Zuma during a visit to Soweto yesterday. If the Minister and the President are genuinely concerned about drug abuse in South Africa, they must re-establish th ...
The wife of Nelson Mandela, Graca Machel, has thanked the thousands of people around the world who have wished him well during his stay in hospital. She said the messages had lightened "the burden of anxiety" and brought "love, comfort and hope". Mr Mandela, 94, is making a sustained recovery but remains in a serious condition, President Jacob Zuma said. South Africa's first black president is in hospital for the third time this year. He is revered for leading the fight against white minority rule and then preaching reconciliation despite being imprisoned for 27 years. He left power after five years as president. Ms Machel has been at her husband's bedside regularly since he was taken to hospital on 8 June with the recurrence of a lung infection. He remains in intensive care. Ms Machel said the world had "stood with him, making a difference to him in his healing". "Our gratitude is difficult to express," said Mr Mandela's third wife, who he married on his 80th birthday. On Sunday, President Zuma urged Sou ...
What happens when the political fog clears? Relations between South Africa and Zimbabwe have passed through various phases, some of which have been trying times. The phases range from the apartheid era, destabilisation era where the apartheid Pretoria Botha regime sent insurgences to destabilise Zimbabwe, decolonisation and democracy. Zimbabwe like South Africa is a sovereign country and they remain “sister” countries and members of Sadc. During the reign of Thabo Mbeki, Tshwane or Pretoria maintained what was regarded as quiet diplomacy despite being pressured from all angles to take a hardline stance against Harare. Mbeki, a more experienced statesman and his advisors were well versed in what is meant by state sovereignty. What must be understood and pointed out from the onset is that Presidents Mugabe and Jacob Zuma are two different leaders with different leadership styles. It will be a serious error for any Zimbabweans in their right frame of mind to allow President Zuma to dabble into Zimbabwe ...
Somalia's president says he "wants answers" from South Africa after the brutal murder of a Somali man in Port Elizabeth, Al Jazeera has learned. The Somali man, 25-year-old Abdi Nasir Mahmoud Good, was stoned to death on May 30 by a mob. The violence was captured on a mobile phone and shared on the internet. Sheik Mohammed, Somalia's president, called on his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma to "act immediately" to arrest those responsible. Kamal Gutale, chief of staff in the Somali presidency, told Al Jazeera on Monday: "The president has asked Mr Zuma and his foreign minister to look into the matter and investigate the brutal killing and violence." The murder is the latest in a number of attacks on Somali immigrants in South Africa. Police are investigating the death but no one has been arrested. At the time, President Zuma was not aware of the incident and expressed surprise," Gutale said. The South African President promised to look into the matter, he said. But SASA said that the South African gov ...
* State Funerals* Are state funerals only given to Politicians, this is a debate that came afdter President Zuma declined a request from the Gauteng Government to confer a state funeral to the Late Vuyo Mbuli. The question therefore, must state funerals be only given to politicians, I myself would have disagreed to give Mbuli a state funeral because that would mean everyone excellent in their jobs must get one such as Doctor Khumalo, DJ Glen Lewis, but to some extent the pool must be extend to reflect what he values, aspirations and progress of South Africans. Take an example of the role of Kaizer Motaung and Dr Irvin Khoza who, despite all forms of oppression, could still emerge with such brands that continue to bind us as a Nation, whom their contribution in building South Africa, if scaled, could weigh havier than those of some public representatives. * I am just thinking out loud*

Zuma speaks on Health (14.02.2013) - with thanks to Health-e News Alerts received today, 21 February 2013 President Zuma discussed a range of health issues in his State of the Nation Address, specifically National Health Insurance, TB and lifestyle diseases. Read the part of his speech dealing with health here. Honourable Members, Five years ago, South Africa had such a low life expectancy that experts suggested that by 2015, our life expectancy would have been exactly where it was in 1955. It was with good reason that we were delighted when late last year, studies from the Medical Research Council, the Lancet medical journal and others began reporting a dramatic increase in life expectancy from an average baseline of 56 years in 2009 to 60 years in 2011. These reports also noted significant decreases in infant and under five mortality. Increased life expectancy is a key to the country's development. People are returning to work, they are being productive, economically and socially. The family structure . ...
It's mad to think the same failed policies will work this time around - Dr Pieter Mulder FF+ leader says yet more BEE, AA, land reform and stricter labour laws are not going to fix SA's problems Dr. Pieter Mulder, FF Plus Leader and deputy minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Reply to President Zuma's State of the Nation Address 2013, National Assembly, Parliament, Cape Town, February 20 2013 The famous scientist Albert Einstein said: "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, is insanity". For nineteen years I have heard every year in this assembly how government, with black economic empowerment, with affirmative action, with stricter labour laws and with land reform, will be solving South Africa's problems. For nineteen years already the government has not succeeded in resolving the unemployment problem. For nineteen years we have been struggling to attract more foreign investments to ensure economic growth. After nineteen years, corruption remains a serious p ...
IMBADU MAWABA, Our President Gedleyihlekisa Jacob Zuma has stated the following: "On the 15th of August last year, the National Planning Commission handed over the National Development Plan, the vision of the country for the next 20 years, to the President in this august house. The NDP contains proposals for tackling the problems of poverty, inequality and unemployment. It is a roadmap to a South Africa where all will have water, electricity, sanitation, jobs, housing, public transport, adequate nutrition, education, social protection, quality healthcare, recreation and a clean environment". My President has attempted to sell out the NDP vision but did not do enough to capture the imagination of his audience around it. Zuma was very quick to pour some cold water on NDP promises and that was not intentional, but points to the poor coherence of message being conveyed to the nation, Africa and globally. President Zuma stated the NDP goals and hastened to highlight problems, and what is needed to do in order ...
Zimbabwe, Swazi Diaspora sends an SOS to Pres. Zuma Posted on 13 February 2013. Tags: Jacob Zuma, Lucky Lukhele, Philani Ndebele, Swaziland Solidarity Network, Zimbabwe Solidarity Forum It is a crucial time for the 51 million people of South Africa, the 1 billion people of Africa and a large section of the world – as President Jacob Zuma gears up to present his state of the nation address. This is because South Africa is Africa’s powerhouse and a major player in world affairs.Of the millions who have placed their hopes on Zuma, there is a section that has sought protection from South Africa having left their countries because of political and economic pressure. In this crucial time in the Southern Africa region, special focus is on Zimbabwe and Swaziland – two neighbours beset by political and economic problems which are a drawback to South Africa’s progress. Transform SA spoke to the leadership of the Diaspora from these countries, to find out what they would like to hear from President Zuma, and ...
CAF BOSS VISITS ZUMA President Jacob Zuma received a courtesy call from Confederation of African Football (Caf) president Issa Hayatou in Pretoria on Tuesday Hayatou was accompanied by four Caf executive members and local soccer bosses Kirsten Nematandani and Danny Jordan, the presidency said. "At the meeting, President Zuma thanked Caf for entrusting South Africa with hosting the Orange Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) 2013 tournament." Zuma also urged the nation to rally behind the four remaining teams. Hayatou thanked South Africa for coming to Africa's rescue by hosting the tournament when Libya could no longer do so. He also thanked the country for being a reliable partner and supporter of African football. Nematandani, who is president of the SA Football Association, said 800,000 tickets had been sold for the tournament, exceeding expected sales of 500,000.
There is evidence that Africa is growing. Jacob G. Zuma, President of South Africa, in De-risking Africa
This is the most vivid example of how the A&C under Jacob Zuma, is increasingly flirting with the policies/statements/sentiments that have already turned Zimbabwe into one of the most disastrous shipwrecks in the history of the nation-state. The A&C is proving itself increasingly driven by dangerous and shallow ideology rather than by what will best serve the country. "Parliamentary Leader of the Democratic Alliance 23 January 2013 I have today written to President Zuma calling upon him to demonstrate the leadership that his high office requires of him. He must immediately put a stop to the ANC’s campaign to discourage investment and destroy jobs through aggressive and irresponsible language and conduct. 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. While the government talks up investment abroad, the ANC seems intent on crushing it at hom ...
AFCON UPDATE: BAFANA BAFANA ENCOURAGED BY PREZ. ZUMA VISIT The AFCON fever has hit South Africa and with the opening match coming up this Saturday the country is awash with expectation and the teams are jetting in for Africa’s greatest sporting showcase. Hosts Bafana Bafana kick start the tournament against Cape Verde and on Wednesday, 15 January 2013 and the team received a major boost ahead of the match when South African President Jacob Zuma visited the team during their training session. President Zuma led at team that included Minister of Sport and Recreation South Africa Fikile Mbalula and his deputy Gert Oosthuizen and top SAFA officials. President Zuma brought a word of encouragement to Bafana Bafana telling them that despite some critics who are predicting that the team will not do well he was satisfied that the team is ready and this was evident from the team’s recent performance in warm up games. President went on to say “The entire country is behind you even those that are curren ...
2013 CUP OF NATIONS In PROPHECY My Prediction is that South Africa will beat all odds to lift the 2013 AFCON cup of Nations. Apart from the" Madiba" Margic which will miraculously make Bafana Bafana lift the cup in tribute to Nelson Mandela- the man who represents all that is hopeful, Mr. Fikile Mbalula , the energetic SA minister of Sports ,to me ,has the whole quality of a future president of South Africa. But since it is obvious that President Zuma will likely remove him from his cabinet for not supporting his ANC re-election bid last year, and considering that South Africa cannot afford to loose such a political talent in just his early 40s, I can bet you that- South Africa will lift the 2013 AFCON cup so that minister Mbalula's political future is secured- since President Zuma will have no cause to remove a performing minister. Finally, my "dice” suggests that the 20 days Nelson Mandela spent in hospital is a kind of sacrifice for him to see his country lift the cup for the second time in his life ...
MESSAGE FROM THE LEADER OF THE INKATHA FREEDOM PART Dear friends and fellow South Africans, On the 8th of January 2012, President Jacob Zuma took the podium in Mangaung at the official start of the ANC's year-long centenary celebrations, and announced that the ANC "is a disciplined force, with a bias towards the poor". He then declared, against all the evidence, that, "We have succeeded in addressing the many challenges facing South Africa", that "The first seventeen years of freedom have been successful," and that "The ANC has laid a sound foundation for socio-economic development." Still, he insisted, "The ANC always humbles itself, it is not arrogant." After a year of continual centennial events, the ANC's humility may finally be making an appearance. Yesterday, a year after President Zuma's speech, the Secretary-General of the ANC, Mr Gwede Mantashe, reportedly admitted that "Greed is eating the ANC to death," and some in the ANC "have become like mice in a cheese factory". On the same day, CNN aired ...
it has to be The President of South Africa..The Honourable Mr Jacob G. Zuma
As the 2014 general election will presumably confirm the African National Congress as the majority party, President Jacob Zuma will remain the political face of South Africa. The merit of this is debatable; since Zuma’s claim of presidential office in 2009, he attracted more attention for his private life than for potential political progress. Numerous allegations of corruption against him haunt the air, and real clarification of the issues seem to be prevented by the country’s political elite at each turn. The fact that so many efforts have been made to hide the facts behind a veil of secrecy suggests there is indeed something to hide. For a country that is so proud on its model constitution, it is vexing that a man of such unclear justness occupies the highest office.
Miles Clarke • Anthony C. LoBaido is a curriculum developer, journalist and photographer. His blog is The Walls of Jericho. Imagine if white farms in Iowa were being attacked by machinegun-toting black gangs on a daily basis. The men are shot, and females as young as 4 years old raped and mutilated. Imagine if the government in Washington, D.C., was led by black communists. Imagine if members of the local police force in Iowa were also black, hostile to whites, illiterate and only had their positions because of affirmative action. Well, welcome to the reality of the “New South Africa.” Despite the Madison Avenue spin doctoring on the great Nelson Mandela and his ruling ANC, South Africa has decayed into a *** of rape, AIDS, murder and anarchy over the past seven years. Mandela’s Rainbow Nation has failed. It has done worst than fail – it has turned into a genocide against white South Africans. Why should we be surprised? History shows that all Marxist states will eventually decay into genocide . ...

Out in the cold. DIVISIONS threatened to tear the ANC apart yesterday as supporters of newly re-elected party President Jacob Zuma demanded that he fire Kgalema Motlanthe as South Africa's Deputy President. Motlanthe - who has for 15 years served in key positions in the ANC - again surprised the Mangaung conference yesterday by turning down nomination to the party's National Executive committee. The day before he chose to contest only the party presidency, though the odds were heavily against him. Last night, in an unscheduled speech to conference delegates, Motlanthe said: "I wish you strength and wisdom in uniting the ANC and its leagues, the alliance and, most important, all South Africans." His spokesman, Thabo Masebe, said reports that Motlanthe was leaving government immediately should be treated as rumours.
"South Africa's Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe will challenge President Zuma for ANC leadership, his spokesman says"
CHRIS MUBIRU: Uganda Police has asked Interpol to join in as it kicks off the hunt for Chris Mubiru whose graphic photos of him having *** sex with a young man appeared in a local tabloid. The hunt comes days after the photos of the man who in the past worked with the national football side, the Cranes were published. Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda, but the now famous Anti *** Bill which is before parliament proposes tougher sentences for people convicted.

2 September 2012 South Africa's President Zuma has paid tribute to Ethiopia's long-serving Prime Minister, Meles Zenawi, who died in August.
Lindiwe must shut her mouth. Every time I hear Lindiwe Mazibuko`s voice I realise just how weak this country has become. She was not even born in South Africa but in Swaziland. She was never involved in the Struggle but wants to dictate to South Africans!She is being used by Madam Zille who was living large in the apartheid era. It also shows that some people in this country hate our president. Lekota, Buthelezi and others are even prepared to join forces with racist Zille to fight Msholozi. They should be ashamed of themselves. Mazibuko has a big mouth and she abuses our freedom of expression to disrespect her elders. President Zuma fought for that freedom. She should just shut up or go back to Swaziland and libarate the poor people there.
Johannesburg - South Africa cannot end up in a situation like Zimbabwe where a president is considered more equal than others and can’t be subjected to criticism, Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi said on Thursday. But all citizens of the country, and not only the president, should not be subjected to insults, Vavi told The Star. This applied whether you were a striking worker, an unemployed person or even an “unborn baby”, Vavi said. He was responding to the call by the SACP in KwaZulu-Natal - and backed by its general secretary, Blade Nzimande - for a law to protect the office of the president following a “barrage of insults directed at President Zuma”. Nzimande told The Star on Wednesday a law preventing people from insulting a sitting president was necessary because some white South Africans had shown little respect for black people and their cultures. He was the first senior tripartite alliance leader to publicly back the call for the so-called insult law, which was first raised by t ...
With all due respect, I think Blade Nzimande and the SACP as a whole should learn to differentiate between criticisms and disrespect. President Zuma has received so many criticisms not because people don't like him.People do not approve of some of the things he does.I have never seen a President in such a short period of time, who has made so much money.Money that does not correspond with the annual salary that the state is paying him. Why would they propose a law to protect an individual?What happened to the Constitution? The president should reflect on his leadership style and how he conducts himself as a leader. It is then that he will realize why he has been criticized this much. South Africa,we've learnt from this and we must not repeat it again.While we are waiting for Mangaung,let's rebuild our society;our land;our inheritance;our only South Africa.
I am concerned about President Zuma's ruling style which operates more like Robert Mugabe's style, cause everytime people protests they get shot and killed, hence in South Africa (SA) we got democratic rights to show disatisfication with service delivery services unless if those rights are withdrawn from citizens of this country. I have no more confidence in the President, hence I am worried that we still want him to stand up for re-election, he has done enough damage as his nephew Malema, both they belong to Anc recycle bin, new innovative minds are needed; cos both Malema and the President are one at the same js different agendas!
Young prophet Lesilo La Masilo (taught by the legendary prophet Credo Mutwa) predicted that President Zuma won't make it as South Africa and ANC's next President after the Mangaung (Bloemfontein) Conference scheduled for December 2012. He said the current leadership will be defeated and a great come back for Julius Malema. The contest will be fierce according to him and Zuma, Mbeki and Winnie Madhikizela Mandela will play a very important role to end this debacle (contest very fierce and tribal).
South Africa needs President Joyce Banda of Malawi to come and sort out the shenanigans in the SA government. She stands no nonsense from incompetent or corrupt ministers and officials and makes personal sacrifices for the good of her people. Take a lesson President Zuma from a real statesperson!
Statement on the intended invasion of Enkandla by the DA 2 November 2012 The African National Congress calls on the Democratic Alliance to abandon its plans to invade the private residence and homestead of President Zuma in eNkandla. We view this as unnecessary and unwarranted provocation with an intent to violate the privacy of the President, his family and the people of eNkandla. We fully agree with the statement released by our province in KwaZulu-Natal that this invasion is uncalled for. While we agree with the fact that there should be no go areas in South Africa for all political parties, it our held view that this applies in relation to elections campaigning and we strongly condemn unceremonious and arrogance of private residence invasion as intended by the DA in this instance. The myopic opportunistic plan of the DA undermines the investigative work that has been undertaken by the Public Protector, the Auditor General and the Department of Public Works that seeks to clarify whether tax payer`s mon ...
Open Letter to Mr. Jacob Zuma: Kindly reconsider Mangaung October 10, 2012 Africa, ANC, Democracy, People, The ANC debate By Reece Phatudi Dear President Jacob Zuma President Zuma, I humbly congratulate you for the past five year term you led the African National Congress. It is undisputed that you gave your life for the public, and liberation of Africans in particular and Blacks in general. Your biography testifies that your name will always be mentioned amongst the greatest in South Africa. Your generation can take a leaf with pride, you fought a good fight. You experience the evils of apartheid, the historic breakthrough of democratic state, and the economic stability and growth, for that you deserve a pat at the back. You laid a good foundation for second phase of transition, some of the victories are: instigating a democratic constitution, piloting democratic organizations, structuring the state with separate powers, adopting good policies with balance favor for both business, and the poor, and creat ...
Nelson Mandela said in one of his speeches " i hate the practice of discrimination & in my hatred i am sustained by the fact that the overwhelming majority of mankind hate it equally". but there is one thing i dont understand, why Malema is disriminating President Zuma saying we won't be ruled by the Zulu's, Friends we are all South Africans and we all having one aim to change our country to become what the Steve Biko's and many other Freedom fighters wanted it to be. We might be from different tribe's of South Africa but we were all victims of the former minority regime that ruled us and tooked our land in their hands. Fighting each other will not make us black South Africans get all what was taken to us back. Together we can do more, "Yes we can" and together we can change the lives of the rural people to be better, Many things we dont have in the rural places . and i wish that all those who i against the man who is trying to lead us rural people to the promised land they can back off.Let the man from t ...
South Africa is at a crisis point bt is difficulty to the majority of black people to see it bcz we are doomed.We are blessed with stupidty leaders who are hungry for power and who have reached the lowest levels of intellectual engagement.is time for all South Africans now to open their eyes,In his latest public lecture former President Thabo Mbeki said i qoute him correctly when he was speaking at the University of Fort Hare about the current leadership of the ANC that they was losing it's ability to provide direction to SA.All this comes against the background of the Marikana killings and ongoing unprotected strikes by mineworkers.Against all this President Zuma told the nation that they should not talk down or say bad thing about South Africa.my question is if the nation follow the call of Mr Zuma to say only good things about our country who would be responsibility of identifying the bad things that needed to be fixed in our country.when President appealing us not to say bad things that affect ou ...
President Jacob Zuma of South Africa's rural homestead in Nkandla is being built for R 203 MILLION RANDS as opposed to Thabo Mbeki's house in Houghton which was built for R 8 million rands. Thabo Mbeki has one wife and no kids from his marriage to Zanele. President Zuma has married 6 wives thus far with 4 still married to him. President Zuma has 22 children including one outside wedlock from Sonono Khoza. If President Zuma wins in Mangaung I will be the first to visit him in Nkandla to ask him the secret of his success against all odds. I like JZ.
President Jacob Zuma lacks both the leadership and determination to turn South Africa into a high-growth economy, “The most revealing example yet of a president who lacks both the leadership and determination to build a high growth economy which will lift millions of South Africans out of poverty”. President Zuma has shown himself incapable of satisfying these conditions. If he does not want to be remembered as the president who broke our economy, then he must get his head out of the sand and resign Change we need_Via President Mothlante & SG Fikile Mbalula

Pallo Jordan speaking intelligently and frankly at the 20th anniversary of the Bhisho massacre and after the Marikana massacre. Will anyone listen to him ? Thank you Programme Director, Madam /Acting Premier of the Eastern Cape, Members of the Provincial Legislature and Government, Ladies and Gentlemen, Comrades and friends, All protocol observed. Like so many of the landmarks along our long walk to freedom, September 7th 1992 does not mark a happy occasion. It was day on which the political and social forces striving to give birth to a democratic South Africa, clashed head-on with the joint forces of reaction represented by the tin-pot military strongman, Brigadier Oupa Gqozo and the die-hards of the apartheid regime. Twenty-eight people were mowed down in a desperate act of repression. On the 8th September 1992, then President of the ANC, Comrade Nelson Mandela’s issued a public statement on the Bhisho Massacre. The message read in part: “Each one of the people who lost their lives at Bisho yester ...

A story from News 24 Acsa, Primedia taken to court over posters 2012/09/23 07:21:23 PM Johannesburg - International NGO Avaaz.org on Sunday announced that they were taking Acsa and Primedia to court for removing posters about lion hunting from OR Tambo International Airport. "Ripping down these ads smacks of censorship and silences the voices of 700 000 people who care deeply about saving South Africa’s lions," Avaaz Executive Director, Ricken Patel, said in a statement. "We are confident that the court will act to protect free expression and ensure this important debate about the future of South Africa's lions continues." The posters, depicting President Jacob Zuma overseeing a lioness about to be executed with a handgun, were hung from the pillars of the airport's international arrival hall, in Kempton Park. In August, the Airports Company SA (Acsa) told Primedia, who put the posters up on behalf of Avaaz.org, to remove the posters. The posters, which were digitally altered to have Zuma's face on it, ...

According to a recent survey young people prefer Kgalema Motlanthe over Jacob Zuma as a presidential candidate. Through President Zuma's leadership we've seen the worst. 1) President Zuma is the worst negatively publicized president in South Africa since 1994. Usually when someone is always publici...
President Zuma's comments attracted a retort from Mamphela Ramphele, she commented on the current state of black education: "The monumental failure in South Africa was not Hendrik Verwoerd's fault but that of the current government". She continued: "Children under apartheid's ‘gutter education' were better educated than children are today.
President Zuma of South Africa is becoming a disgrace to the eyes of most of his people and other African nations... Many of his government actions (including the recent massacre of miners) a his political philosophy nullify (to my opinion) the efforts for justice done by Steve Biko, Nelson Mandela (the activist-prisoner and then president) and the world in the fight against "Apartheid". A post-Apartheid black South African leader should never apply Injustice over South Africans, a people that long toiled and sacrificed in order to acquire justice and freedom from then white-supremacist government. Because the world had condemned Apartheid for oppressing its own people, Zuma, a "controversial" black president who leads the country's affairs like his "four bedrooms" I might add, deserves a fair blame... Perhaps, shall he prepare himself, most Africans on the continent would agree, to resign !!!
Moses Kotane shaped the labour movement in South Africa, he shaped the SACP to be what it is and he shaped the thinking of the ANC to be this powerful organisation. He was indeed a giant that deserves to be celebrated - President Zuma.
Meanwhile , Let's hope that attempts by Sadc to ouster Deputy Prime Minister Professor Arthur Mutambara is not driven by nepotism where Sadc mediator, President Jacob Zuma of South Africa is related to Professor Welshman Ncube. That could raise a serious conflict of interest enough for President Zuma to recuse himself from mediation on Zimbabwe.
July 2012 Vol 44, Cover Stories, Constitutional & Elections Indaba Zuma touches down in Harare. Mugabe no show at the airport By AFP Wed, Aug 15, 2012 HARARE - South African President and facilitator in the Zimbabwean political dialogue, President Jacob Zuma yesterday arrived in the country to get an update on the progress of the implementation of the Global Political Agreement (GPA). President Zuma arrived in an Air Force of South Africa jet late this Wednesday afternoon. The Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Didymus Mutasa was at the Harare International Airport to welcome him on behalf of President Robert Mugabe who instead attended the launch of the Zimbabwe National Population Census exercise in the capital.

The expelled leader of South Africa's governing African National Congress's (ANC) youth wing, Julius Malema, told BBC Africa that his political career is not over.

President Jacob Zuma of South Africa arrived in Seychelles early this morning for an important meeting with the rival political leaders of Madagascar. President Zuma, the chairman of SADC, was met at the airport by President James Michel who is hosting current leader Andriy Rajaelina and former President Marc Ravalomanana on the resort island of Desroches. The South African and Seychellois presidents flew to Desroches for the conclusion of SADC and Indian Ocean Commission (IOC) efforts to resolve the political issues of Madagascar.
Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke congratulated Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng on his appointment by President Jacob Zuma as the new Chief Justice in the Constitutional Court of South Africa.
Its almost Five years since we emerge from what is termed a watershed Conference in Polokwane, and Comrades have began to ask what was Polokwane about and their answers lies from the activities of Gvt and ANC since we sworn in President Zuma as the country no1, but what makes me happy is that it took the People of Congo more than 40 to 50 years to regret colluding with Imperialist in the Assanation of Patrice Lumumba one of their greatest leader of all times; it means South Africa has a vibrant society who want 100% contributions in how their country is run.
What lessons for Africa? After 500 years of a profoundly unequal relationship with the West, it is clear that we don’t have the same criteria of what is good and bad. We have deeply divergent interests. How can one not deplore the “yes” votes from three sub-Saharan countries – Nigeria, South Africa and Gabon – for Resolution 1973 that inaugurated the latest form of colonization baptized “the protection of people,” which legitimizes the racist theories that have informed Europeans since the 18th century and according to which North Africa has nothing to do with sub-Saharan Africa, that North Africa is more evolved, cultivated and civilized than the rest of Africa?

Zuma's giant leap to nowhere - Helen Zille Helen Zille 01 July 2012 DA leader says the ANC has once again proven it has no solutions to SA's problems Zuma's "giant leap" - off the cliff The ANC's policy conference in Midrand this week has dispelled any lingering hope that the ANC can still rescue South Africa from the consequences of 18 years of ANC rule. If the conference resolutions (couched in tired, old Marxist jargon) are ever implemented, they will undoubtedly worsen the crisis of poverty, unemployment and inequality the ANC claims it wants to address. The ANC acknowledges in its own discussion documents, prepared for the conference, that the state is "impotent". It acknowledges that there is a "crisis of outcomes" (otherwise known as delivery failure). But its plan to fix this is - more state control! Despite the acknowledged failure of almost every state-driven intervention - from land reform to education renewal - President Zuma's opening speech blamed the familiar scapegoat: "white men" and the ...

Expelled ANCYL leader Julius Malema claims President Jacob Zuma undermined the youth by attending a G20 summit instead of joining a Youth Day rally. “President Zuma undermines the youth of South Africa,” Malema said in North West province on Tuesday, according to an SABC report. “How can he leave June 16 [Youth Day]?,” asked Malema. Zuma’s spokeperson, Mac Maharaj, said the president’s schedule had to be adjusted for him to travel to Mexico. Maharaj denied reports that Zuma wanted to avoid being heckled at the Youth Day rally.
ANC statement on alleged comments by Ronald Lamola at UNISA 22 June 2011 The African National Congress finds it totally disrespectful and distasteful that senior leaders of the ANCYL would falsely attack the President of the ANC with ease. This was evident in the lecture delivered by Lamola on Thursday at Unisa where amongst others, he is alleged to have accused President Zuma of prioritizing his own village (Nkandla) for development at the expense of South Africa’s development, an accusation that everybody who is South African knows it is not true. In his haste to vilify and denigrate President Zuma, Lamola conveniently forgets that the ANC in Polokwane adopted a policy on Rural Development and land reform. In pursuit of this policy, the ANC led government established a Rural and Land Reform Ministry and Department in 2009. It is this department that has, since 2009, championed and crafted national plans for Rural Development in South Africa and identified areas that are deserving of such plans and att ...
As thina maXhosa sihlala sisitsho sisithi "Isikhuni sibuya ngomkhwezeli". Julius Malema said and i quote." long live to the spirit of ANC presidents Oliver Tambo, Nelson Mandela and Mbeki" skipped Zuma " Long live the spirit of Kgalema Motlanthe, long live!” (when & where was he elected, Mangaung???) and went on and said "Are the people leading you today your role models? You are inspired by the corrupt individuals, who don’t have respect for women? You are inspired by people, who love positions and power at all costs? We regret having campaigned for President Zuma, both in the ANC and the country. Promotion of one tribe against so many tribes in South Africa. The man who we said was a unifier – the ANC today is more divided.”
it was a "slap in the face of young people" that Zuma pulled out of attending a Youth Day rally's and instead went to the G20 meeting in Mexico.By failing to remain in South Africa on Youth Day, one of the most important days in South African history, President Zuma has demonstrated once again that he has no interest in engaging the youth of South African. "This facade of concern about youth issues is wearing thin. It started with the refusal of the President to implement the youth wage subsidy, despite overwhelming evidence and support in favour of its implementation." Manguang will bear ripe fruits, Victory is certain Bakone.
Hate crimes continue, but President Zuma remains silent The Democratic Alliance (DA) is profoundly saddened by reports today indicating that Thapelo Makhutle, was murdered this past weekend as the victim of a homophobic hate crime Makhutle's decapitated body was found in his home on Saturday. This violent and gruesome assault is yet another reminder that many of our country's people are still denied the basic rights and freedoms which our Constitution enshrines. There is a spate of homophobic hate crimes which have recently taken place across our country, including the repugnant and unconscionable crime of so-called "corrective rape" committed against *** South African women. At this time, South Africa needs strong leadership from President Jacob Zuma, and an indication of his commitment to ensuring that all South Africans are able to live their lives free from fear of discrimination or violence. Unfortunately, the silence from the Presidency has been deafening. This silence is made worse by the fact ...
South Africa: Murray portrait disrespectful to President Zuma - 7thSpace Interactive (press release): Los Angele...
Thabo Mbeki once warned the ANC about the phenomenon of "leadership based on CULT-PERSONALITIES". As Ferial Haffajee (City Press, Editor-In-Chief) has opined- the ANC/SACP's calls suggest that this is a "political campaign" for Zuma to be re-elected at Mangaung. It is much more than "just about the painting". In the best interests of this nation, I don't think President Zuma should run for a second term. A second term for him amounts to a SURE threat to media freedom. South Africa needs leaders who have "the bigger picture" in mind - we don't need cult-personalities in leadership.
The Art Historian in me is loving being in South Africa during such art controversy. The attached link is one of the best articles I have read yet regarding the painting by Brett Murray of President Zuma "The Spear".
In as much as I believe in democracy, but this guy(Brett Murray) has gone too far in exercising his freedom of expression. I take this as an outright abuse of freedom and violation of the President's rights to privacy which he is entitled to as a citizen of South Africa. This is more than freedom of expression but direct attack to a black president, head of state and to President Zuma's family.
SA descending into censorious mindset - Dene Smuts Dene Smuts 22 May 2012 DA MP says powerful art cannot be censored or erased from public memory The Spear and the descent into censorship The iconic status achieved overnight by Brett Murray's painting The Spear is a measure of the quality of the work, now deplorably destroyed by iconoclasts. President Zuma and the ANC took no action when a directly comparable depiction by Ayanda Mabula - also portraying the exposed private parts of both President Zuma and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu - was exhibited in Cape Town. The difference was that The Spear was brilliant as a work of political satire, which is also why it became an instant icon. South Africa has been descending for some time into a censorious mind-set that is taking us further and further away from the free speech which is fundamental to our democracy. If the President feels that his dignity has been impugned, he should sue Murray for damages as he is suing the cartoonist Zapiro. Applying to cou ...
I wonder if Julius Malema ever knew that President Zuma's genitals would be more important and more news worthy than his Expulsion. This is why I love South Africa.
Hein Espach Open Letter to President Zuma (The original person who wrote this should be PRESIDENT! - BRILLIANT!) Dear President Zuma, Please find below our suggestion for fixing South Africa's economy. Instead of giving billions of rands to the government that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan : There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them R2 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations : 1) They MUST retire. Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed. 2) They MUST buy a new car. Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed. 3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed. 4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university - Crime rate fixed. 5) They MUST buy R100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week. And there's your money back in duty/tax etc. It can't get any easier than that! P.S. If more money is needed, have ...
Jacob Zuma painting: ANC to sue South Africa's Brett Murray South Africa's governing ANC says it will go to court after a gallery exhibited a painting with President Jacob Zuma's genitals hanging out. Brett Murray's painting by is an "abuse of freedom of artistic expression" said ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu. He said he had asked lawyers to get the Johannesburg gallery to remove the $14,000 (£9,000) painting, The Spear. President Zuma, who has four wives, has sued local media companies 11 times for defamation. The BBC's Mohammed Ali in Cape Town says some have been settled, other dropped, while most are outstanding. The best-known case is a 2008 suit against one of the country's most high-profile artists, Zapiro, after he depicted Mr Zuma about to rape a female figure representing justice - this is due to be heard in October. Mr Zuma was cleared of raping a family friend in 2006. 'Satire' Murray, who our correspondent says is known for his political and provocative work, has not commented on the ANC sta ...
Brett Murray.. Disrespected ANC and South Africa as a Nation that man must be called to Order. If people can not Respect President Jacob Zuma they will be forced to do so. President Zuma is the President of South Africa he must be Respected. The is no Freedom to Disrespect or to Character Assassinate our leadership. President Zuma is our President!!!
While President Jacob Zuma is not a moral paragon of virtue, artist Brett Murray had no business to display President Zuma as he currently has done. South Africa, esp liberal SA, seem to think that rights are infinite & seem to haf made it their biz to take every available opportunity to embarrass and disrespect the person of the president. We call on SA'ns, art world & the media to condemn 'The Spear' + Brett!

Addressing the 88th Ordinary Session of the Central Committee at the party's headquarters in Harare yesterday, the President said members of the South African government had no power to interfere in Zimbabwean affairs. He said President Jacob Zuma, in his own capacity, was the only one with the privilege to facilitate dialogue between Zimbabwean parties. "South Africa are not our facilitators, but President Zuma as was President Mbeki. He alone. We cannot be facilitated by the whole of South Africa. Hatidi, we are a sovereign State and we cannot be led by the government of South Africa. Let's not be told that South Africa is our facilitator," he said. President Mugabe instructed the party's Global Political Agreement negotiators to advise their colleagues that the Constitution-making process should be concluded.
