Good question. :lol:

So far all I've seen is that one post. Not reported on any of the other news sites yet, except for News24.

I'm pissed off beyond belief.

Had a record month in January with my stock.

Only 10 days into February and I've already done 75% of the sales I had for Jan, and added 1,000 photos so far this month (where I usually average 1,000 per month). So all indications that I will have an even better month in sales (mostly US$, some Pounds) this month compared to Jan.

Now the Rand's going to strengthen (with JZ gone and the dollar weakening). I think it might test the R 10/$ mark. That means I'll get 20% less in Rand value. :x :x :x

Looks like he will be recalled.

For all his treacherous planning of state capture and all that, I don't think he pictured going this way. Being forced out by his own party and with no hope of immunity.

Listened to a US prof speaking on the radio (RSG) (did not get his full name, Prof Piet Joubert I think) who reckons Zuma will not be bothered by the odd R3 million p.a. that he will lose if fired ... he's made enough money otherwise. For him the main thing will be to
a) maintain his circle of patronage
b) get the Russian nuclear deal signed.

Go do you fokken research yourself. There WAS a deal signed, year ago, already set apart by the courts (Cape High Court - expect a challenge on that)
Muthambi (Zuma's lay) and the Energy minister was in Dubai this weekend. Guptas in Moscow last week. All available on the net.

Stop being so fokken lazy. It comes through even worse than your boorishness.

its not laziness...its indoctrination.....these Free State Zupta happy clappies will be the last to realise that now that uncle is gone its all over bar the shouting and gnashing of teeth. Next thing you will hear is how BN loves Cyril and Zuma was evil incarnate etc. etc. Thats how these Zupta puppets work. Politics of the stomach. Wherever the bread is being buttered thats where you will find them with their snout grovelling in the trough. Today is a sad day for BN....he will have to start grovelling n another direction.

Thats what everyone is saying...his salary will never ever support him and all his wives and children in the style they are accustomed to. Maybe the Free State should open their hearts and wallets and support them with a special tax.

Letter being drafted by the NEC, to be delivered to JZ.

Quote:
#ZumaExit ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule and his deputy Jessie Duarte have been tasked with delivering the recall letter to President Jacob Zuma #sabcnews



Letter to be written and delivered by two of his staunchest supporters :lol:




One other thing that needs mentioning: it took a 13-hour meeting for the NEC to get to an agreement. That clearly shows there's still one helluva lot of support for JZ within the top structures.

A great deal of support - the nuclear deal will enrich most of them, for generations to come ... They will become ancestors - and what more does a man want to become ...

Do not rule out a recall for Ramaphosa, in the near future, too ....

Problem for JZ, from all the discussions I've seen, is that there's no legal way in which anybody can grant him any immunity.

The only person who can give some sort of agreement is the president of the country, who is currently Jacob Zuma. There might be a slight conflict of interest.........

And immunity indicates an admission of guilt.

Doesn't need immunity. Only needs a suitably incompetent State prosecutor, who fudges up his arguments and misrepresents the case.

We've seen that many times already. Before, during and after apartheid, even.

And of course there is the usual from the Zuma family.....its all the Wests fault. And the Whites......

They really think that the rest of South AFRICA is as foolish as themselves and BN.....

https://www.iol.co.za/dailynews/whites- ... ium=social

Quote:
President Jacob Zuma’s family has blamed white people for his political woes and called on him to resist pressure to resign.
Zuma’s nephew, Inkosi Simphiwe Zuma, a senior member of the family, said the ANC national executive committee (NEC) members and society’s call for him to resign was the work of the West, which interfered with the ANC’s affairs with the aim of destroying it, so that “they can do as they please with the country”.

“White people came within us, with the aim of destroying the ANC. If the leadership does not realise this, they (white people) are coming for (Cyril) Ramaphosa,” he said.

And if the president resigned he would be admitting guilt on the allegations made against him, he added.

“If you resign you are saying you have done something wrong. They must make a de­cision to recall him, since he is deployed by the ANC. I don’t support the idea of him resigning on his own because that would he admitting to (the) charges they’re putting against him,” he said.

BREAKING: Zuma has until end of Tuesday to resign - sources
2018-02-13 12:48
Mahlatse Mahlase, Tshidi Madia and Adriaan Basson

Pretoria - The ANC has given President Jacob Zuma an ultimatum to resign as head of state by the end of Tuesday or risk being removed by Parliament.

ANC secretary general Ace Magashule delivered Zuma’s recall letter to the presidential guesthouse on Tuesday morning after the party’s highest decision-making body, the national executive committee (NEC), decided after a marathon meeting that he should go.

News24 has reliably learned that the balance of forces in the governing party had shifted "overwhelmingly" against Zuma and there was little sympathy for his perceived defiance of the ANC.

"Zuma is very emotional. He is speaking through the heart now. He is angry," an inside source with knowledge of the discussions with Zuma said.

The ANC is scheduled to announce its decision to recall Zuma at 14:00.

FOLLOW THE LATEST NEWS IN OUR LIVE UPDATE

Zuma refused to resign during a terse meeting with ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa and other top officials at the presidential guesthouse late on Monday night. Ramaphosa was delegated by the party to inform Zuma of his imminent recall.

The meeting came after Ramaphosa failed to convince Zuma to resign voluntarily. Ramaphosa told the NEC that Zuma had insisted on a three months' "notice period" to hand over the running of the state to his deputy. This was rejected by the NEC.

"He was given one last chance to resign, but he refused. He was very emotional," said the source. Zuma told Ramaphosa that he would respond publicly to an official letter from the ANC that recalls him, if the party decided to go that way.

Ramaphosa and his colleagues returned to the NEC meeting at Saint George Hotel outside Pretoria, where it was formally decided to recall Zuma.

Loud applause for Ramaphosa

According to inside sources, Ramaphosa was widely praised by the NEC for the way in which he has handled the matter. "Cyril got loud applause. People appreciated that he tried to avoid this thing from happening (the recall)."

Another NEC source described Zuma as impossible. "He has literally shown the NEC the middle finger. We were exhausted and emotional."

His approach caused former Zuma supporters like Fikile Mbalula, Pam Tshwete, Collen Maine and Nomvula Mokonyane to speak in favour of a recall. "Pam Tshwete used to insult us (Ramaphosa supporters) in NEC meetings in defence of Zuma. We were surprised," said an NEC member.

On Tuesday morning, Zuma was told that he had until the end of the day to step down.

Motion of no confidence

If Zuma resigns, it will trigger an immediate vacancy in the Presidency which will be filled by Ramaphosa in an acting capacity until he is voted and sworn in as president by Parliament.

If Zuma still refuses to go, the ANC will have to vote him out through a motion of no confidence in Parliament. An EFF-sponsored motion is scheduled for February 22, but it is expected that the ANC would want to table its own motion to remove Zuma.

The EFF is expected to insist that its motion be dealt with first, creating the possibility that ANC MPs may have to abstain from voting or vote against the motion if the party insists on removing Zuma through its own motion.

Speaker Baleka Mbete has called a forum of chief whips for 08:00 on Wednesday.

He's received an ultimatum - resign by end of today (Tuesday) or.........


(Or the ANC is in kak).

Quote:
Pretoria - The ANC has given President Jacob Zuma an ultimatum to resign as head of state by the end of Tuesday or risk being removed by Parliament.

ANC secretary general Ace Magashule delivered Zuma’s recall letter to the presidential guesthouse on Tuesday morning after the party’s highest decision-making body, the national executive committee (NEC), decided after a marathon meeting that he should go.

News24 has reliably learned that the balance of forces in the governing party had shifted "overwhelmingly" against Zuma and there was little sympathy for his perceived defiance of the ANC.

"Zuma is very emotional. He is speaking through the heart now. He is angry," an inside source with knowledge of the discussions with Zuma said.

The ANC is scheduled to announce its decision to recall Zuma at 14:00.

Zuma refused to resign during a terse meeting with ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa and other top officials at the presidential guesthouse late on Monday night. Ramaphosa was delegated by the party to inform Zuma of his imminent recall.

The meeting came after Ramaphosa failed to convince Zuma to resign voluntarily. Ramaphosa told the NEC that Zuma had insisted on a three months' "notice period" to hand over the running of the state to his deputy. This was rejected by the NEC.

"He was given one last chance to resign, but he refused. He was very emotional," said the source. Zuma told Ramaphosa that he would respond publicly to an official letter from the ANC that recalls him, if the party decided to go that way.

Ramaphosa and his colleagues returned to the NEC meeting at Saint George Hotel outside Pretoria, where it was formally decided to recall Zuma.

The part in red is what interests me most.

If my beloved prez refuses to resign, they will have to remove him through a motion of no-confidence.

The EFF played this very, very well by tabling such a motion last week already. And they asked the Speaker to move the motion to an earlier date. They had the foresight to see that JZ will probably not resign.

This leaves the ANC in one helluva dilemma.

The ANC won't easily be able to now push in a vote of no confidence before that of the already tabled EFF one. And even if they managed to do that, it'll have the EFF (and probably most of the opposition with them) running to the courts, and be able to prove that the Speaker is not impartial, and not performing her duties adequately.

This then leaves the ANC with two choices.

1) Vote with the opposition - something they said they'll never do, or
2) Abstain from voting, and file their own one afterwards.

Both will leave the ANC look like fools. The best they can do is swallow their pride and go for the first option.

If they go the route of the second, it'll prove that they are acting to the benefit of the ANC, not the country. The opposition will get a couple of magazines of extra ammunition to use against them at the next election.

Will Ramaphosa taking the mantle as President in the next couple of days bring up constitutional issues further down the line? Like when he wants to run for his second full term?
