The ANC giant is falling
By Mike Smith
22nd of October 2016
The rift in the ANC cannot be denied anymore. Apparently 101 ANC stalwarts signed an open letter to warn Zuma They now have publically expressed their “deep concern” about the state of the country and thrown their support behind embattled Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan facing corruption charges. They “strongly believe the charges are without foundation and clearly show a misuse of state agencies”.
The full text of the letter and the names of the 101 signatories can be read here
Yesterday Zuma’s goons in the Hawks, who are supposed to uphold the law are now using criminal tactics themselves, kidnapped SARS deputy director of law Vlok Symington who was locked in a boardroom in the SARS head office while the Hawks‚ and SARS boss Tom Moyane's bodyguards attempted to get him to make an affidavit in the fraud case against Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
The Save South Africa campaign has called for the immediate sacking of National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head Shaun Abrahams and South African Revenue Service head Tom Moyane Zuma hints at conspiracy against him within the ANC and the other day we saw that he doubled his amount of bodyguards.
The mind boggles as to what Zuma seems to wish to achieve, because he is just making it worse by stumbling from one embarrassing blunder to the next. He even fell asleep in parliament during Gordhan’s budget speech. One cannot help but feel that these are the actions of a desperate and ever increasing paranoid president who can see the writing is on the wall for him and unless he makes plans to skip the country might find himself in prison soon.
Zuma is trying to block the release of the Public Protector’s report on state capture by him and his corrupt Gupta cronies Zuma set on postponing court hearing on state capture report
Rehad Desai, the award winning director of the Marikana documentary “Miners shot down” last night released his follow up “The giant is falling”. What an apt title.
Shot over two years “The Giant is Falling” provides an inside look at the big political events of recent years that seemingly signify the dying days of the ANC.
In the mean time the country’s richest Platinum mines are shunning the Guptas and are ditching doing business with the Gupta’s companies . The miners are ending, or not renewing, contracts with JIC Mining Services because it’s difficult to pay for their services after the nation’s biggest banks closed accounts connected to Gupta-linked companies.
Meanwhile the student protests are escalating and gaining momentum. It is starting to become a true revolution now. This past week they marched on parliament and Al Jazeera recorded the violence and fighting between the students and the police and Zuma’s goons have arrested more than 800 students so far
Following UWC (University of the Western Cape), the Cape Peninsula University of Technology has also thrown in the towel and shut its doors for 2016
These are not just black students. Look at how many whites are involved.
Look at these stupid goons harassing the reporters…
