Misgovernance and corruption will continue under Zuma, says Pityana

Save SA has once again lashed out at the ANC (African National Congress), this time expressing their disappointment at the NEC for not calling for President Jacob Zuma to step down.

Speaking to 702's Stephen Grootes, Save SA convenor and Ashanti Gold chairman Sipho Pityana said that they would continue in their efforts to remove Zuma.

ANC secretary general, Gwede, Mantashe, announced yesterday that robust debate had taken place regarding Zuma's future during an extended NEC meeting in Pretoria.

He said that ANC leadership was focusing on uniting the party and setting the wheels in motion ahead of the 2017 elective conference.

It means that we are going to continue with the misgovernance and corruption project we have seen under his leadership.

ANC Chief Whip Jackson Mthembu and ministers Aaron Motsoaledi and Thulas Nxesi were reported to have supported a motion of no confidence brought by minister Derek Hanekom.

Pityana lauded the leaders for speaking up and not allowing the country to be looted with impunity. He said they should not step down from the positions as they would continue to hold leaders to account.

The debate is not over, this fight is not over.. because if they left, they would be leaving the doors wide open for those who are determined to loot.
