South Africa: The Insight Factor – The Insight Factor rejects the African National Congress’ clumsy attempt to intimidate the channel and censor it (10.05.2021)

African National Congress (ANC): ANC concerned about leaking of its internal discussions (09.05.2021)

Opinion: The ANC is rotten to its core

The African National Congress (ANC) the ruling party since 1994 and the ones who has spearhead politics in South Africa. Is showing its ugly side these days. The dirty laundry isn’t hidden, but shown to the whole wide world to see. This is all happening because of the Previous President Jacob Zuma. Has initiated this and showed the world his insatiable greed.

Zuma will never profess to that. His a victim. He is the man who had to fall on a sword to let other people live. The ANC clipped his wings and made a mockery of him publicly. Because, the former head of state will never take responsibility for the “State of Capture” case and all the alleged corruption charges on him. No, no, no… this man is innocent and a saint.

Alas, we are in 2021 and now the gloves are off. The Zondo Commission is working. The damage of the corruption is hurting the party. The ANC is suspending its members and its hurting the egos on top. The latest victim is Ace Magashule who in the past promised to squeal on everyone who did anything within the party. If they went after him.

So now that they suspended Ace. He says the party now has to suspend President Cyril Ramaphosa on the same grounds. As he is also faces charges of money laundering and questionable funding in the CR17 Campaign donations,

We can wonder how this one will roll out. As there are several of people involved and been together in the eating on top. Certainly, the party, the high ranking officials and the ones appointed knows this. It is not like there is a single servant or one culprit. That is why Ace promised to talk before to show a point. Now, he targeted the President. The man who took over for Zuma and was supposed to make things differently. Alas, that haven’t been the whole story.

The ANC is rotten to the core. They are corrupt, grand corruption is in their veins and they live on perks of office. The ANC has gotten used to the spoils and the usage of state to benefit themselves. That is why, if you go after one of them. You will find a whole company and allies participating. This being investors, handlers and everyone closely associated with the ANC. It is not only a governing party, but a business enterprise subsidizing and incorporating funds into portfolio’s of ANC associates.

Therefore, that Ace retaliates is a must. He needs to show heart now. The man should show all proof and address this in meetings with the Zondo Commission. He should talk his heart out and use the weapon of knowledge. So, he can implicate others and show the dire truth of the party. That is if he dares, as his whole political life is on the line.

Yes, it has taken years for Zuma to get any punishment or any trial for his charges. The same could happen Magashule. But… that will forever follow him and his name. Ramaphosa has the luxury of the office now and clearly will not follow suit or a statement of a suspended Secretary General. Still, it is a show-down and shows the distress of a party inflicted in self-destruction.

A path Zuma initiated and engraved in the party. The greed, the zealous efforts to eat of the government plate and enrich themselves beyond belief. The ANC became a full bazaar and a place for petty thieves and corrupt officials. That is why the stink is smelling in Gauteng and elsewhere. The truth is that the party cannot run away from it anymore. Everyone knows it too. They know that these gentlemen in suits are “killing it” and have bank-accounts stashed away in Switzerland. That is has all been provided by government tenders and shell-companies shielding the schemes to make it happen.

This is why… Ace needs to tell and report what he knows now. Especially, when he dares to go afte the President. Since, a media statement is just the beginning. That is not enough. The damage control of the ANC will come into play and they will make a fool out of Magashule. Unless, he drops bombs to the Zondo Commission and show them explicit truth with documents and other proof of criminal conspiracy. Than he can bring down a whole bunch of people and undress them too.

The ones following knows this has been truth for years. ANC have been a lost cause for so long. It has been a corrupt enterprise running the state. That is really it and they endured a lot. It is now time for the ones shielding it to come forward and drop the knowledge from the inside. Not just jump on their swords and take the hit. Something got to give and maybe that’s someone as conning as Ace. Peace.

Opinion: Zuma is not a victim

We are still living through the previous President and his misgivings… this being former President Jacob G. Zuma. The former African National Congress President and leader have been going through a long and prolonged investigation into his actions in office. This is the State Capture cases and the Grand Corruption, which he was involved in.

Zuma had the years of 2009 to 2018 as President and 2005 to 2008 as Vice President. So, this man has been in the halls of power and enjoyed the perks of it. That is why him and his team is defending the looting and usage of office. The man wasn’t born with a silver-spoon, neither was a inventor or a serial entrepreneur. No, he was a career politician who rise up through the ranks of the ANC. This is why his wealth, connections and everything was on a rise while he had power.

We all know that suddenly he had funds, house in the Middle East and built a village in Nkandla. These sorts of efforts and enterprises doesn’t happen overnight. Neither, does the use of State Owned Enterprises to favourable business-partners in the Oakbay or Gupta Family sphere. These are all things that the courts and Zondo Commission have to assess. All of these acts over the years and every business deal made with his associates.

Over all those years… there was so many scandals, SOEs involved and other “investors” all eating of the plate. While the President was getting kickbacks and favours. That wasn’t shocking. Neither that his family members and ministers was doing that as well. It was a collective effort and Zuma was skimming of it.

So, that Zuma on the 1st February 2021 calls himself a victim and that he is being hunted is wrong. His being investigated and hopefully something can come out of this. As the years are going. The cases are getting old. The documents and affidavits are there. The proof is still there, but the corruption scandals shouldn’t lose relevance.

Zuma had no issues robbing the state and the accounts of the state. The President had no issues getting kickbacks and enriching himself in office. So, it is now that he got to defend himself. The former President turns himself into a victim. The investigation and criminal proceedings are aligned with apartheid. By doing that the former President isn’t only revising history, but also making himself not accountable for his own actions. That is not shocking, because at some point… this man made it look like he could get away it.

This is why we are now in 2021. There been several of times this seemed to be closer to an end. There been charges, but no sentencing. There been indictments and investigations, but no finalization of these cases. The ex-President should answer and possible serve time. That is up the to the courts, but people stealing much less hasn’t gotten any mercy. Therefore, if there is an equal justice before law. Then Zuma should answer for his crimes, but not alone. He should answer together with his associates and political operatives. That all knew this was happening. It wasn’t happening in a vacuum.

Zuma isn’t a victim. That is a lie. He is a man in legal jeopardy and deserves to get investigated. There is no need to bring a up terrible past, which has nothing to do with it. That is just misusing it to gain political mileage. That maybe worked before, but it shouldn’t work now.

Zuma did the bidding in office, earned his coins and wealth. He should answer for that. Since, he wasn’t a mighty businessman or inventor of some kind. No, he was just another politician with a crooked method of gaining funds. Peace.
