I do hope that sanity will prevail in the mad universe of Jacob Zuma's head.

Despite the debate surrounding the recall, Carolus says that there is not doubt that Zuma will leave. For her it is just a matter of details.

She adds its up to Zuma on whether he will have the decency to accept the nations wishes and how the process will be.

The bottom line is Jacob Zuma is going to go. He will not be the president of the country. How that happens is details.

Cheryl Carolus, Former ANC deputy secretary general

Only Jacob Zuma has the power in his hands to decide how messy, how ugly and how humiliating this is going to be for him.

For Carolus, the hopes are the Zuma will leave quickly and quietly, as that is what is best him and for South African's.

Our people have been battered for the past 5 years of brutal abuse under Jacob Zuma and his corrupt cronies. Please can he just go and not force the country to inflict upon him more humiliation on him that what he inflicted on himself.
