Jacob Zuma and Corruption

Introductory Letter

Gary Smith

It has now become clear that JZ has become a liability to this country, and perhaps it is time he was gently nudged out of politics.

Some of the evidence that has been placed on record is damning and, even if we start from the assumption of innocence of corruption (and I truly hope this is the case), we need to question whether JZ has shown the required judgement to be a leader of SA.

I believe Shaik has played him.

SA is blessed with so many other potential leaders, it's time to look at someone who will not have a question mark over their name for the rest of their lives.
