- SACP member Blade Nzimande feels Jacob Zuma's analysis and understanding of what state capture is, is wrong
- Nzimande said Zuma shouldn't confuse the youth with an explanation that is "a Marxist analysis"
- Nzimande feels his party can't allow Zuma to give the South African youth information that isn't right
Blade Nzimande, South African Communist Party's general secretary has spoken up about former president Jacob Zuma's understanding and analysis of what state capture is.
Nzimande said Zuma should stop confusing the South Africa's youth.
According to Zuma, the term 'state capture' is nothing more than a politically decorated expression.
The former president addressed students at the Walter Sisulu University of Technology in Mthatha when he talked about state capture, according to an earlier report by Briefly.co.za.
Zuma went on to say a state is composed of three elements: Legislation, executive and judicial and that none of these are captured.
Nzimande does not agree with what Zuma said. He stated that the state is made up of more than just the three parts that Zuma mentioned.
The state is made up of many institutions over and above just Parliament, the executive and judiciary. That’s a Marxist analysis of a state, not a liberal analysis.
A report by EWN indicated that Nzimande also said that his party could not allow such things to be said and let the youth confused with something that's wrong.
