South African President Jacob Zuma To Be Forced From Office
We need to take a page out of South Africa’s book and push our burnt sienna POTUS out of office.
According to USAToday, the African National Congress has announced their decision to pressure President Jacob Zuma to resign from office. Says Nabila Patel:
“We are positive about Zuma leaving because South Africa can begin its journey on the road to recovery,” said Patel. “I thought Zuma was an inadequate president … who showed signs of corruption and weakness.”
Zuma is still currently the President, however the ANC has sent him a letter that states their decision to have him “recalled” according to Secretary General Ace Magashule.
“We are giving him time and space to respond,” he said at a press conference here. “We haven’t given him any deadline to respond (but) when we recall our (president), we expect (him) to do what the organization expects him to do.”
Its reported that the President has refused and parliament will soon hold a “no confidence” vote to force to him out.
Zuma’s corruption scandals go back as far as 2009 when he spent millions of public money to upgrade his home in addition to previous illegal arms sales and charges of selling government contracts to his friends.
South Africa sees a dangerous and untrustworthy leader and gets him out the paint. Wish we had those Wakandan super powers…
