'Zuma is attacked because he is a champion of RET' - Hlanganani Dlomo
Defend Zuma At All Costs Campaign is planning to shut down the Durban CBD on Thursday in preparation for former president Jacob Zuma's court appearance.
The former head of state is facing charges of fraud, money laundering, and racketeering.
The coordinator for the campaign Hlanganani Dlomo says Zuma has been attacked because he is the first president to fight for radical economic transformation.
You must understand that the attack towards former president Jacob Zuma, from our point of view, we see this as an attack with a hidden agenda. Taking into cognisance that Zuma is the very first president to have the taken the status quo head-on, the white monopoly capital that is running the country left, right and centre.Hlanganani Dlomo, co-ordinator, Defend Zuma at all costs campaign
We are saying that Zuma must not be attacked on the basis that he is pushing the agenda of radical economic transformation (RET) which seeks to emancipate all the black people, especially those who are still marginalised in what we call a democratic South Africa.Hlanganani Dlomo, co-ordinator, Defend Zuma at all costs campaign
