“It is past time for Jacob Zuma to leave,” says Wayne Duvenage, OUTA CEO.
FutureSA is a politically non-partisan coalition of civil society organisations, including OUTA, which aims to end state capture. FutureSA has written to ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa, calling for the ANC to recall Zuma as President of South Africa. OUTA is a signatory to this letter.
“South Africans have suffered the loss of billions of rand through fraud and corruption linked to the conduct of the President and his connected cronies,” says Duvenage.
Each year since President Zuma came to power, our nation has fallen short of its potential and ability to generate growth in jobs and economic output. And each year the President has misleadingly praised the outcomes and performance of his Cabinet.
We believe the time to remove Jacob Zuma from office is long overdue and we urge the new ANC leadership team to exercise their right to do this.
South Africa needs an urgent and peaceful end to this crisis. We cannot start another year with a SONA presented by a thoroughly discredited President: our economy cannot afford it.
We urge the ANC leadership to stop procrastinating and recall Jacob Zuma today.
OUTA is a proudly South African non-profit civil action organisation, comprising of and supported by people who are passionate about holding government accountable and improving the prosperity of South Africa.
