Scandal alert… (
actually it’s not that surprising really). A South African Defence Force colonel has signed a sworn affidavit that implicates President Jacob Zuma in the whole Guptagate debacle where a private plane landed at Waterkloof Air Force Base. Lieutenant Colonel Christine Anderson said in the affidavit that “On or about 17 April 2013, Mr [Bruce] Koloane phoned me and he informed me that he had returned from the president and that the president wanted to know ‘if everything is still on track for the flight’,”
And now for a quick response to these allegations from our president…
The affidavit from the colonel also confirms that ‘Number One’ in the justice departments report on Guptagate refers to Jacob Zuma.
“Number One is the President of the Republic of South Africa. For safety reasons we never refer to the president in phone conversations,” said Anderson.” [News24]
Is anyone at all surprised by this?
