Vytjie Mentor’s Open Letter: Former ANC Member of Parliament Vytjie Mentor says she plans to embark on a hunger-strike soon, in a bid to push President Zuma out of power.
She announced the ‘big’ plan on the social media, where she told her followers that she has written down four demands in relation to the hunger-strike.
The demands include:
- That Zuma steps down.
- That South Africa rises to occupy Parliament and the Union Buildings until Zuma Steps down.
- That the Guptas Citizenship is revoked.
- That the Russian Nuclear Deal is canceled.
Mentor maintained that now is the time for Zuma to step down because South Africa has had enough of his corrupt administration.
She, however, plans not to fight the government alone, as she has written to South Africans, pleading with them to join the fight against the “monster” leading the country and his plans to capture the state.
Her open letter reads: “One big march here and there across the country will never take Zuma down. It is against this background that I ask you South Africans to occupy parliament and the Union Building day and night until Zuma is forced to step down.
This is a clarion call to all South Africa to embark on a peaceful sustained action to bring this Monster down!. The red berets did it in Thailand, Brazil did it, South Korea did it, and we can do it too. If you love me, care for me, and need me as you always declare you do, you will consider this humble plea from the bottom of my heart.”
Vytjie Mentor believes President Jacob Zuma does not only place his own interests ahead of South Africa but also acts against the country he swore to serve and protect intentionally.
The part-time lecturer at the University of KwaZulu-Natal is South Africa’s most prominent whistleblower and Zuma’s vocal critic has severally spoken out the current leadership, under whose watch corruption and scandals escalated to the very point that the Guptas allegedly made appointments of ministers, among others.
The former ANC MP seems to know everything about the president and his friends. She has continued to fight for a scandal-free government and for Zuma to step down – information-wise, her startling revelation about the Gupta could be said to be that triggered Madonsela’s investigation on the Guptas and consequently, the publication of the state capture report.
Earlier this month, she alleged that the nuclear power deal, recently signed by Finance Minister Gigaba Malusi will see President Jacob Zuma’s controversial nephew Khulubuse Zuma make billions of Rand.
“Gigaba signed the nuclear deal last night. It will be R6 trillion with over-runs. All South Africans are now officially slaves of the Russians, and thus will be the case for the next 100 years. Khulubuse Zuma is the SA holding company for the Nuclear plants. The next 20 yrs Khulubuse Zuma will be making more than 50billion. Congratulations, mission accomplished,” she wrote.
Conflict Between Finance Minister And His Adviser
As expected, last Wednesday, Mentor weighed in on the brief drama that played out between Gigaba and his adviser Chris Malikane.
Malikkane, an economics professor at Wits University, had called for the nationalization of mines and banks but Gigaba denied speaking through him, saying he issued the statement on his own.
The drama left many wondering what’s going on between the two. However, Mentor finally spoke, she implied that Gigaba had something against his adviser, who he feared might take his place at the “Guptas’ table”.
She also demanded answers on Prof Malikane what was doing at Saxonwold on November 3, 2016.
Nkosazana-Dlamini-Zuma who appears to have stolen the race is in no way Mentor’s kind-of leadership candidate. She sees the former AU chairperson as Zuma’s replicate, who lacks what it takes to lead a nation like South Africa.
