Politicians ridicule president, saying there’s nothing to celebrate
PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma came under fire in Port Elizabeth yesterday when politicians at two Freedom Day events lambasted him for his lack of leadership.
In Kwazakhele, former Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Zanoxolo Wayile – now the national ideological officer for the soon-to-be-launched United Front – delivered a scathing attack on Zuma, saying there was nothing to celebrate when corrupt leaders could still walk free.
In Motherwell, DA Eastern Cape leader Athol Trollip said while he respected the office of the president, he did not respect the president.
