…Zuma’s journey ends here – Malema

The South Africa Constitutional Court has given President Jacob Zuma three months to pay back the money he drew from the public coffer that he used to upgrade his private home at Nkandla, saying the decision breached the constitution of the Rainbow nation.

Jacob Zuma

Guilty

The court has given the treasury 60 days to determine how much he should repay.

“The National Treasury must determine the reasonable costs of those measures implemented by the department of public works at the president’s Nkandla homestead that do not relate to security…,” Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng ruled on Thursday, in a unanimous Constitutional Court judgment.

The South Africa Treasury has been given 60 days to determine the percentage that Zuma must pay back

An anti-corruption body, known as the public protector, ruled in 2014 that $23m (£15m) of public funds had been used on Zuma’s private home. It demanded a refund but Zuma sat on the report, a decision the Chief Justice has described as “inconsistent with the Constitution [hence] invalid”.

Meanwhile, opposition leaders led by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Julius Malema have called on Mr. Zuma to immediately step down or face an impeachment.

“Zuma’s journey ends here… Zuma’s case ends here. Anyone who wants to question this matter any further would be questioning the court. We call on him to step down and to do that with immediate effect” EFF leader Julius Malema told reporters.

The Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane said the ruling was a clear indication that “Zuma’s action amounts to a serious violation of the constitution, and constitutes grounds for impeachment”.

Zuma is accused by the opposition of using public funds to upgrade his home with a swimming pool and amphitheatre.

  4. South Africa has Judges that deserved to be called Judges unlike our country where Judges are owez on Government side. Hunger for money remain a big challenge in our country ( Malawi) that’s why cash gate scandal will be a prolonged problem.

  8. As for my country, the problem isn’t the problem. It’s rather as a result of a problem. Malawi is suffering today not only because of the self-centredness of its leaders but also because of the silence of its citizenry. Even though we are too garrulous when it comes to criticizing the government on the social media, we choose to remain dormant when the pain becomes unbearable. Unless we revolutionize our mindsets, the problems we are facing as a result of this other professor’s “half baked” leadership are here to stay. We blatantly choose to scrutinise issues inadvertently at the expense of national development. Over the years, Malawians have become too proactive but not responsible. As a result, ordinary Malawians continue living in squalid conditions and i suppose those who create the “worlds” are contemplating creating another world under which Malawi will fall into. Have time for objective introspection. Not peace, not peace alone makes a nation great and good. Let’s explore even more.

  9. ….pppls try to report it as it is…”the court has given the department of treassury to detamine how much zuma must pay….” not zuma given three months to pay back the money,and the fact is that zuma did nt stole the money but rather benifited from the renovation project on non security ungrades.

  11. I don’t mean to undermine our judges but I wish we had one like chief Justice of SA. The fact that he was appointed by Zuma himself it takes extra courage to rule against the boss…..bravo chief Justice

  13. Justice at its bst in a Rainbow nation. This tells us that to be a presdent does nt mean u r above the law. As Malawians lets emulate this, the law mst be followed and if those people who r in high position found guilty they must be punished. Bravo south african judiciary

  17. That’s the only democratic nation in africa where Judiary has its full independence. Not like in Malawi where the cabinet is ruling parly and juiciary. This guy can’t allow president’s powers to be trimmed bcz of such consequences. South Africa has politicians who can’t be bought like ours.

  23. God is punishing Zuma slowly but surely, this man was behind the merceless removal of Thabo Mbeki from power. However the highly educated and God fearing Mbeki steped down peacefuly.

Mind you, on FB we have people from other countries who also read these same articles, I’ve noticed with these guys amakhala ndi ma mistake ambiri, nde chonchi people from other countries aziti chani about aMalawi. Kuti sitimatha kulemba. I don’t mind ma typo from wina aliyense, koma these are news pages. So it’s different. Komanso it’s not about me being educated etc. It’s just a matter of doing things correctly. People from other countries must not be laughing at us. Ambiri nu always say “bola tamva”. How is one supposed to improve if you don’t correct?
