In another twist involving the public protector’s office‚ the Minister of Co-operative Governance an.
IN his response to the State of the Nation Address debate President Jacob Zuma unapologetically and politically reclaimed his public standing after opposition parties and the media deliberately chose to ignore his real focus on serious matters of governance and policy.
The truth is that Zuma's role throughout the liberation struggle remains unmatched. Many of his unfortunate critics in opposition benches are themselves questionable characters, politically and otherwise.
Those of us who unconditionally trust in his uniting leadership style, characterised by openness and loyalty, will always rally the masses of progressive peoples round Zuma to reconcile, reconstruct and develop this promising nation.
Those who call for his removal from the highest office in our enduring democracy must be advised to raise public policy alternatives, or else first win elections, if they really want to contribute to public discourse or be taken seriously by the majority of the electorate.
So far none of the opposition parties seem to know their role beyond malicious attacks aimed at our president.
Opposition parties, as clearly led or joined by sections in the anti-Zuma media, are missing the real issues characterising our national discourse at this point in the history of our ongoing liberation struggle.
Perhaps they must be told that they are only misleading a few elite followers. It is far from the truth to suggest that the majority of South Africans are angry or disappointed with Zuma.
