The South African Communist Party (SACP) is not planning to stop their calls for President Jacob Zuma to step out of office.
It has been reported that the Deputy General Secretary of the South African Communist Party, Solly Mapaila, stated that Jacob Zuma is an “elite predator.” Solly made this statement on Tuesday while he was attending a conference.
Briefly.co.za learned from thesouthafrican.com that Solly called Jacob Zuma an “elite predator” the day before Cosatu’s strike against state capture and corruption was set to take place. The purpose of the strike is to remind the African National Congress to take the concerns of workers seriously when it comes to State Capture in the government.
According to reports, many of the protestors will be carrying signs which state that Jacob Zuma must go. The protestors will reportedly be marching to the banks, city halls, and Eskom during their strike.
Solly Mapaila stated that Jacob Zuma’s “elites” are the people who are close to him, the Gupta family, and any other people involved. Solly went on to state that state capture and corruption is a very serious problem that South Africa is facing. Solly stated that after the strike takes place, nothing will be the same in South Africa.
