Jacob Zuma

South African President Jacob Zuma really IS a piece of work;

South Africa’s president has refused to intervene in the case of striking miners charged with the murder of 34 others shot dead by police last month. Lawyers for the 270 accused had written to Jacob Zuma demanding that the men be freed by 13:00 on  Sunday. They were charged under a controversial apartheid-era law, accused of provoking police to fire on the crowd. In a statement, Mr Zuma rejected the request, saying he would respect the institutions investigating the case. The killing of the strikers at the Lonmin-owned mine shocked the nation

This is surreal.  Under Zuma control, the State is charging MINERS for somehow making the police kill MINERS!!!!! If this happened anywhere else in the world we would be hearing howls of outrage but the ANC ruling elite seem to be protected from such righteous critique. Also, WHY are “apartheid era” laws still in place? The ANC took control in 1994.  Where is the excuse? It’s my view that the MSM want to pretend that under the gaze of Mandela, South Africa has matured into a better place. But if the Government can slaughter workers and then blame the workers, I suggest that there is nothing at the end of this Rainbow Nation.

    Any minute now Petr Tarasov will step in on behalf of the workers…
    Oh!
    But hold on a marxist minute!
    South Africa is now being ruled by “real South Africans”.
    Not a white man in sight to pin the blame on!
    Petr,
    where are you???

  2. I wonder how many of those miners have been duped into voting for the ANC in the past. At least they now know that the State is not your friend.

  3. Whatever happened to the rule of law? Should Cameron have intervened to stop the prosecution of Assange?

  4. Petr,
    Where are you?
    I would have thought a thread like this would be right up your street.
    Or have you taken yourself off on a bike ride? 🙂
