Rivonia Treason Trialist Denis Goldberg has spoken out against the current leadership in South Africa.
According to Goldberg, recent events - including the Constitutional Court ruling on Nkandla - have created a tipping point for people to focus their minds and expose state corruption.
He says the country needs renewed political leadership, for President Jacob Zuma to step down from office, and for the African National Congress (ANC) to recommit themselves to the values of the Freedom Charter.
People in branches have to say enough is enough. How do we get this ruling group of, what i would say in quotation marks, 'gangsters', 'political gangsters'. How do we get rid of them? Only through the mass action that we used to get rid of apartheid.— Denis Goldberg, struggle stalwart
He reminds the public that Zuma has an extensive history of questionable leadership, dating back long before the firing of former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene.
The President has leapt from one Constitutional crisis to another. The 'spy tapes', the firing of Vusi Pikoli over former police Commissioner Jackie Selebi. All sorts of things to apparently protect top people. The violation of the Constitution...has been going on for a very long time.— Denis Goldberg, struggle stalwart
