Zuma's ethics questioned
Ethics institute says Zuma’s comments at the ANC birthday gala were inappropriate.
CAPE TOWN - The Ethics Institute of South Africa at the weekend said remarks by African National Congress (ANC) President Jacob Zuma on companies flourishing if they do business with the political party are ambiguous and problematic. "It sounded as though if you support the ANC there will be some form of a reward, which may come in the form of preferential treatment when it comes to awarding of contracts."
At a gala dinner celebrating the ANC’s 101 birthday in KwaZulu-Natal at the weekend Zuma said businesses which co-operate with the ruling party will prosper.
The institute's Deon Russouw said the president’s comments are unfortunate.
