A letter published by former president Thabo Mbeki regarding rumours of a plot to topple him have prompted South Africans to reflect on his tenure.
702 and Cape Talk's Redi Tlhabi gave listerners an opportunity to share their thoughts on the matter.
Listen to the conversation below:
I fail to see how we continue to laud Thabo Mbeki as some great leader. Thousands died because of his Aids policy and his position on Zimbabwe. The man was dispicable.— Brian. caller from Claremont
Mbeki was unconsitutionally removed by the ANC. The constitution is clear on how a sitting president can be removed from office and nowhere does it say that a political party can do that.— Mike, caller from Soshanguve
I think that this is an opportunity to engage him especially around the issues of the Aids policy and Zimbabwe.— Thabiso, caller from Polokwane
History is going to judge us harshly. When our children are old and we have to give them a clear answer as to why he was recalled, because everything was alleged.— Thabo, caller from Northriding
