Holomisa: “Cut a deal! Go Home” President Zuma

Instead of a nation preoccupied with the scandals surrounding President Zuma, the United Democratic Movement (UDM) advises that we should rather deliberate his exit strategy. Since the advent of democracy, we have never been faced with a crisis of this magnitude i.e. allegations of corruption at the highest level. The African National Congress (ANC) has completely misinterpreted their mandate. They are clearly using their majority to do their utmost to protect President Zuma at all [...]

Particularly given the amount of public money involved. His continued posture, playing ignorant, does not only expose [...]
