Oh how i have missed Juju. Here i thought Malema had disappeared from SA politics for good and then bam he releases a statement that ends… “The time for Zuma to step down is now! We should all agree that President Zuma has sold South Africa over a plate of curry”. The statement also calls on the South African National Prosecutions Authority to charge the Gupta family with high treason.
Here’s the full statement from Malema regarding the Gupta’s and Zuma.
“STATEMENT BY JULIUS MALEMA IN RESPONSE TO THE GUPTA’S HIGH TREASON AND CULTURE OF FEAR OF SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER IN SOUTH AFRICA:
05 May 2013
We have over the past week observed the events, statements and developments that happened around the illegal and treacherous landing of a Gupta plane carrying more than 300 people in one of South Africa’s National Key Points, the Waterkloof Airbase, without the approval of the Minister of Defence.
Since that incident, everyone, including the media, analysts, union leaders, government Ministers have been egg-walking around the problem and therefore failing to expose and speak to the reason why South Africa’s security was undermined. As considerate and fearless South Africans, it is now the moment once again to speak truth and expose what many people are scared to say. As youth, we carry an obligation to speak truth at all times, and we will never claim easy victories.
As early as February 2011, during the launch of the ANC Local Government Elections Manifesto in Rustenburg, we on behalf of the ANC Youth League and in front of the leadership of the ANC and the alliance, cautioned against the enrichment and control by families of our democracy. We said in the rally that “This is not a democracy of families. This is a democracy of the people of South Africa”‘ in reference to our knowledge that the Gupta family had taken control of our government through President Jacob Zuma.” [More]
Ha the last line is the best part though.
“We should all agree that President Zuma has sold South Africa over a plate of curry. “
