Why Zuma needs to hang on for dear life
By Mike Smith
2nd of April 2016
Lying SOB Jacob Zuma survived another day after delivering a spin-doctored speech on live TV that was reported on the BCC, Euronews and other world senders. Beautiful. So now the whole world knows what a lying, thieving idiot we have as a president. How embarrassing. It is people like him that give other South Africans a bad name.
Lots of people were hopeful that Msholozi Showerhead would resign. Even ultra leftist and polezniye duraki, Max du Preez had to put his bottle of champagne back into the refrigerator after it became clear to him that Zuma had no intention of resigning.
Meanwhile the elephant in the room became too big for yet another Rivonia trialist and former terrorist. ANC stalwart Ahmed Kathrada urged Zuma to step down
With me there was never any doubt; Zuma was not going to resign, step down, or retire, ever!! He can’t. His dilemma is 783 suspended charges of fraud against him. If he ever resigns he will be ripped apart like wild dogs rip a baby impala apart.
Problem is he cannot stay on either. He is dragging the ANC down with him every second he remains in power, but they can’t fire him, because never forget that Zuma was the head of ANC intelligence when they were in exile. Which means, although Zuma is an utter embarrassment to the ANC and they would really love to see him go, he has enough dirt on all of the big wigs to take them down with him. That is why they now have pulled a laager around him. The ANC top brass had no choice, but to support Zuma
It is a desperate situation for the ANC. At the moment they are hanging on the end of a rope which is fast approaching the yield point as in Young's modulus of elasticity. They're praying for a miracle.
Their answer was to get the idiot to apologize based on their knowledge of African culture. Allow me to explain:
In traditional African culture there are no old age homes, no mental asylums and no prisons. Punishment for crime, whether it is stealing a cow or stealing an apple is simple. It is either death (by being clubbed with a knobkerrie) in the former case or being beaten to within an inch of your life (by being clubbed with a knobkerrie), in the latter. Then life goes on as if nothing happened. It is in the past. It is gone. It’s over.
There is also no such thing as rape. If the sexual encounter was a bit traumatic for the woman, she is urged to put it behind her and… life goes on as if nothing happened. It is in the past. It is gone. It’s over.
Sleeping with another man’s wife is surprisingly a minor crime. You just give him a small gift like a bottle of Whiskey, apologize and tomorrow you are brothers again…life goes on as if nothing happened. It is in the past. It is gone. It’s over.
This is what the ANC hopes will happen after Zuma’s apology. Whites will say it is not enough, he still needs to go to prison, but the blacks will forgive him tomorrow. Life will go on as if nothing happened. It is in the past. It is gone. It’s over.
The ANC is banking on this popular support to keep Zuma in power for as long as possible by sheer numbers.
However I do not think that this time it is going to work so well. The opposition parties, the media and big business along with the mining bosses and Rand Lords are at his throat like predators at the throat of an old elephant bull and as I once observed in the Kruger Park when an elephant got attacked and severely wounded but survived and made it back to his herd, his own herd pushed him out and sacrificed him to the lions who shortly afterwards killed him whilst they carried on.
So what are the options to Zuma.
I doubt it if Zuma still has it in him to go full Mugabe and silence any and all critics and opposition. Not legally anyway. He tried it in the past with cartoonist Zapiro and Sunday Times and failed.
Malema said that the Guptas and Zuma arranged a R6billion drop off in Dubai . Zuma claimed it was a state visit to Saudi and UAE to improve relations and market SA as a tourist destination. However he never took Derek Hanekom, the Minister of Tourism along. I think Malema might be right. Zuma is setting his contingencies in place.
To me there is no doubt and I have mentioned it before. If I was Zuma, I would keep Inkwazi fuelled up and on ten minutes notice at all times whilst I try to steal the last few billions in the state coffers. When those pitchfork and scythe carrying proletarians come for my ass, I will gather my four wives and extended family and fly to some friendly African, Caribbean or Arab country like Dictator Idi Amin did.
If he takes that option, I am pretty sure that the ones who supported him and pulled laager around him will also flee. If the shepherd goes, nothing will keep the flock together.
However, before he goes he should make sure that he has a sympathetic successor who will allow him to live out the last days of his miserable life under a palm tree somewhere, because I tell you what I would do if I ever came to power in SA. I would immediately reform the CCB and C1 at Vlakplaas and release them on the heels of these bastards to hunt them down wherever they might be hiding in the world. Whatever money they can recoup, will be their reward and they can keep. I will consider it money well spent on JUSTICE.
