Ex-president Jacob Zuma has shaken things up once again, this time by claiming that he was the brains behind the notion of the National Development Plan (NDP)
The former president Jacob Zuma attended his foundation’s 10th annual chess tournament where children and teenagers are motivated to test their strategy in a good old-fashioned game of chess.
Before long the ex-president did what he does best by inviting controversy to the event. Speaking to a full venue at eMandeni in KZN he had made outlandish statements.
To the surprise of the people present Zuma had gone into a tirade about he had been the creator of the NDP and that without him, South Africa would have no ideal for the future.
The NDP is a vision for the country for 11 years from now in 2013. The concept has the inclusion of all demographics at its centre.
“South Africa’s transition from apartheid to a democratic state has been a success… Despite the success, too many people are trapped in poverty and we remain a highly unequal society.”
In a nutshell, the NDP wants to uplift a large portion of South Africans out of poverty and arm the youth with tools and resources as well as access to education.
