- Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula has shared his thoughts about former president Jacob Zuma
- Mbalula believes that Zuma will lose nothing if he were to appear before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture
- He responded to two separate tweets about Zuma, one of which was shared by Bantu Holomisa
Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula is known for being quite opinionated but recently took things to another level. Mbalula responded to two separate tweets about former president Jacob Zuma on Monday, 22 February.
Mbalula was responding to the news of the application by the State Capture Commission filing papers to have the former president arrested for contempt of court after he failed to appear before the Commission.
Mbalula wrote that the charges against Msholozi could have been avoided in response to Bantu Holomisa's tweet.
Take a look at the tweets and a few responses below:
"What are u doing in parliament if you cant see the error of law by this Zondo? You guys are trying, by all means, to make sure that Zuma doesn't account for sabotaging this case. You want to get away with CR17 corruption by creating instability. We see you."
"You guys don't know how the law operates and Zuma is still one step ahead of you guys."
"You talk as if the Concourt has ruled, wow."
"SA is a Constitutional State that's why de Klerk is cruising nicely with 18 charges opened against him."
@eliotchauke1 responded with:
"The law says a fine and/or imprisonment of not more than 6 months. Which Law was used to determine the 2 years that Zondo is Demanding?"
"True Mbaks, JZ is being ill-advised by the people around him."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that uMkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) spokesperson Carl Niehaus has slammed the application put forward by the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture to have former president Jacob Zuma jailed for two years.
The Zondo Commission made an urgent application to the Constitutional Court stating that Zuma had been in contempt of court. Now Niehaus has come to the defence of Msholozi through social media. He wrote:
"Have #JudgeZondo & the whole #StateCaptureCommission lost their minds? Are they hell-bent to deepen the crisis that they have created, & push our country over the brink? This is now a dictatorship of the judiciary. #MKMVA will oppose this to the hilt!"
