...Thabo Mbeki is one of the greatest leaders South Africa has ever produced... Jacob Zuma is one of the worst leaders the ANC has produced in its entire history...— Sipho Pityana
Jacob Zuma is the “sponsor and chief of corruption in South Africa”, said AngloGold Ashanti Chair Sipho Pityana at the Mining Indaba in Johannesburg on Wednesday.
“Zuma must go. When you are the president who literally laughs off any suggestions that government be held to a higher standard and is in fact the sponsor of corruption,” said Pityana.
He also said that the business community must make more noise about protecting the public purse as National Treasury remains under siege.
