I agree with Annonymouse in your concern about Zuma's ceiehlmonac behaviour in public gatherings and boardroom meetings. I am reminded that despite the fact that the man in his capacity as vice president of the country, contributed in the drafting of the statement that Mbeki read in terminating his services in government in 2005, he went outside the structures of government and ANC and pleaded victim of unfair dismissal that borders along conspiracy against him. As a collective the leadership approach of which he became a champion overnight but continues to tumble during the day the ANC government of which he was one of the top leaders took a number of policy decsions that resulted in, inter alia, the constitutions and its pillar institutions such as the Concourt, SCA, the NDPP and the Scorpions; repealed the death penalty that was also confirmed by the Concourt, agreed on GEAR and labour policies. Recently, he has been flying around the country denouncing the very policies he helped to make, institutions he helped to establish and he goes about this as if he suffered a comma from 1994 and only woke up in December 2007 in Polokwane only to realise there were all these policies and institutions that are against him which are also counter-revoultionary in their behaviour and conduct, hence their being dismantled today and people who serve in them hurled with insults of unparalleled propotions with impunity. He has also been complaining that the laws of this country are so weak in favour of criminals at the expense of law-abiding ctizens of this country and that they must be made to bite a little bit. But the fact that the law is biting him it is wrong, such laws must now be repealed and made more weaker not to catch him and his cronnies in the act. Recently when he was in Mozambique, he lied about the state's fight against poverty in that country when he said the Mozambican government is not theorising when it fights against poverty. This was totally untrue when you think of the fact that there is bloated democracy in that country, corruption is institutionalised, there is no policies and mechanisms to ensure provision of basic necessities such as helath, education, water and electricity in the rural areas. Communities in Mapulanguene, Magudu, Xaixai in Gaza province are still subjected to hunting and gathering lifestyle while the government officials are living large in he city each with not less than four state-funded vehicles for official's government business (1), private use including holidays (1) spouse (1) and kids (1). Majority of Mozambicans are still flocking to SA in search of a better life while others come and register for pension and other grants here in SA, collect it and go back to Moz cos those basic things are just not there. But because of his ceiehlmonac characters and intention to please the Mozambican government, he turned a blind eye on the realities on the ground which became an insult to the poor people of that country and all those who know exactly the sufereing that people are experiencing in that country due to the corrupt nature of the sitting government there. In the country he has been critical of Mbeki's mediation approach, but when he is in Europe he claims his and ANC's support to Mbeki. The man simple does not have a backbone and I wonder what kind of a president is SA going to have in him. I am not against anyone who does not have any formal education to occupy high office since we do have some of our leaders in government who because of apartheid and their involvement in the struggle to dismantle it were robbed of the opportunity to learn. And I am not saying for Zuma to be a president he must have a university degree. I think all what the majority of SA would like to get from Zuma is life education to (a) demonstrate ability to identify and differentiate between right and wrong, (b) moral and immoral, (c)admit when made aware he erred and say I am sorry and (d) as a leader of the ruling party who was involed in the struggle and a person who knows the sacrifies made to get this country to where it is today to put the interests of the country first and his latter. But unfortunately there is huge deficit in the man when coming to these most important aspects.
