Former President Jacob Zuma has thrown in the towel, but what of his cabinet ministers implicated in serious allegations of criminality?
Until those also implicated in state capture are removed, only then can we celebrate the departure of the most divisive and controversial leader in the democratic era.
Zuma resigned as the President of the Republic of South Africa , in an address to the media on Wednesday at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.
Bingwa says while the president has resigned, the 'evil' he has done will live after him, for as long as his enablers are still there.
History will not be kind to Zuma. It shouldn't be. It matters little how he left. He is gone. He leaves as a pathetic figure who has been a disgrace to the struggle that so many who went before him gave up the ultimate sacrifice for. His legacy will stand as an insult to Solomon Mahlangu whose dying prayer was the his blood would nurture the tree of freedom.— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast show host
He leaves behind state owned entities in disarray, hollowed institutions that have compromised public accountability, a nation that has come to expect the worst from our leaders - nothing surprises us any longer. He leaves an executive which has members who face serious allegations of serious criminality - do not be too quick to celebrate - until those who stood with him to give effect to his decisions who are also implicated, only then can we celebrate the departure of the most divisive and controversial leader in the democratic era.— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast show host
