The Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans' Association's spokesperson, Carl Niehaus, recently spoke up about the ongoing state capture inquiry.
Niehaus is not impressed by the lack of evidence given by the witnesses who have testified to date.
As reported by eNCA, Niehaus was talking to a large crowd outside the KZN High Court in Pietermaritzburg.
Jacob Zuma also made a quick appearance during Niehaus' talk.
According to Niehaus, there hasn't been anyone who testified at the state capture inquiry who could deliver actual, hard, convincing evidence against Jacob Zuma.
Niehaus also took a stab at the media, saying they are influenced by "white monopoly capital" and work to destroy the former president's reputation and name.
We know that their media has been publishing for 15 years one propaganda story after another in order to destroy our people’s President…
We must come together to say we will not allow that to happen…
We don’t believe Zuma will get a free and fair trial under these circumstances…there must be a permanent stay off prosecution….
This kind of victimisation on of our greatest leaders of our country can not continue.
Niehaus often gets into trouble for the things he says, but Zuma certainly wouldn't mind having someone defend him so fiercely and loudly.
