'Action man' will help SA

By Sapa | Jan 11, 2013 | COMMENTS [ 123 ]

ANC president Jacob Zuma is the "action man" who will lead South Africa to prosperity, his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa said.

“The time for talking is over. We want action, and action man Jacob Zuma will ensure that this country moves forward,” he told African National Congress members at a "cadre's forum" in Edendale, Pietermaritzburg.

He said while the ANC had done well, matters like job creation and improved service delivery needed urgent attention. The ANC also had a plan to deal with poverty.

“If you ask me what legacy will be left by Jacob Zuma, I will tell you that it is the National Development Plan and the multi-billion [rand] infrastructure project."

Maybe "action man" should do something about the things that are making the headlines today - rape, murder, lack of facilities at schools.
Then we can talk.

Spot on. I was in Mogwase last weekend, yerr, I saw that the Industrial Site there is dilapidated. During Mangope's reign people were not hungry and he invested a lot in Education & Job Creation.

Just anything about the anc is a lie, I hope the people who are being played with will eventually notice it too.

Let us do it My President, the time is now, give tenders to build/improve school buildings, schools need proper furniture, schools need Teachers, schools need feeding schemes, if you start there, all will come later, next will be eradication of Shacks, then proper job creation, not building Malls all over and thinking that is creating Jobs, we need Factories, manufacturing and building better roads, better public transport and forget about E-Tolls that take away monies from the poor.

G Morning there.
Unfortunately, our president does not understand that education is the cornerstone of a prosperous economy. How do you expect to grow the economy when you decrease the pass mark to 30%, and then you tell all and sundry that the pass rate for Matric is 73%.? It only takes 1 person to create a job. I dont know how our president was going to create over 500 000 jobs.


I hear you Bakhabakha, we can't remove him now, we can just encourage him and give him pointers, his adivisers must be changed, they are the ones that mislead him, he can be a better President, if only we give him the courage and support, he has realised that some people looked at their pockets only and never worked for us(communities), now is our chance to show him the support, they say if you can't beat them, join them, let us join ANC and correct the wrongs. Yes Education is a cornerstone of every person, if pass mark was reduced, then Mma Angie must go, can someone investigate this please and give us the true storie, I thought our kids did well.

Whatever, the only action JZ took was closing down the Scorpions.
********************************************************************************
Seemingly you need new reading glasses dear, didn't you see National Planning Commission and Multi-billion Infrastructure project? That is JZ's legacy as a leader. JZ knows his limitations, hence he appointed Trevor Manuel, Ramaphosa and other experts to help develop a national plan that will guide us as a country until 2050, that to me is leadership. Have you given yourself time to read the Plan?

Analysts and experts who looked at the plan are in agreement, according to them, this is the first for South Africa and it is commendable that the president never fooled himself by believeing that he "knows everything", JZ acted inline with the ANCs collective leadership principle.

Play the ball and not the man.

@ILLUMINATED

...And some people believe that foreign investment can make it better, like "Gabriel" the current ANC leadership should hang their heads in shame, for this wounds we can not stand, they've gone too far.

multi billion rand infrastructure plans means billion rand tender plans!!

Of course JZ is going to get going with the infrastructure so that he can hand out tenders and take his cut. Cyril can by plenty more buffalo too.
