Upgrade to Brigade

Please reassess Jacob Zuma's suitability to lead the Government of South Africa and act as a role model to South Africans.

His involvement in scandals precludes him as a suitable incumbent for this role. In most other countries, a president facing such scandals would resign voluntarily, be forced to resign or not be re-elected nor appointed by the wining electoral party as that party’s nor that country’s president.

 Scandals include inter-alia

1. Rape Charges that were admitted dropped, yet the complainant appears to have disappeared.

2. Advocating polygamy in a poverty ridden society, that should focus on small families and the betterment of those small nuclear family members, via education, better nutrition and proper parental guidance.

2. The fathering of children from women who are not his wives.

3. Breaking the trust of a close friend by engaging in sexual intercourse with his daughter, young enough to be Zuma's grandchild.

4. The arms deal scandal, which has been ongoing for more than a decade  and the subsequent withholding of the tapes despite an court order.

5. Nkandla:

  • The findings in the public protectors final report inter-alia
  • Inappropriate & inflated spend and the subsequent farcical defense of that by Government ministers e.g. swimming pool being called a "fire pool", building of a tuck shop, cattle kraal and chicken coup, etc, etc with tax-payers money.
  • Engaging his private architect on the project without proper security clearance and then  allowing his ministers to vociferously defend that report based on security issues. This is a very hypocritical stance.
  • Lying to parliament that he had no knowledge of the upgrade costs yet he visits the development regularly and noticed the upgrades. Surely a man in his position should have summoned his Ministers to explain where the money came from. 
  • He is after all, meant to be the no. 1 protector of all things South African which should include, taxpayers money and public funds, honesty, integrity, appropriate leadership and dealing of issues quickly and succinctly.
