ANC stalwart Ronnie Kasrils publicly blasts President Jacob Zuma
Ronnie Kasrils says with the current executive in power, South Africans are living under 'mafia rule'.
CAPE TOWN - African National Congress (ANC) stalwart Ronnie Kasrils says with the current executive in power, South Africans are living under "mafia rule".
The anti-apartheid activist is at Stellenbosch University today discussing South Africa's future alongside Dr Buhle Zuma, an academic and philosopher.
The ANC stalwart has again publicly lambasted President Jacob Zuma.
A few weeks ago, he joined other freedom fighters in calling on Zuma to step down following a Constitutional Court ruling that the president violated the Constitution in his handling of the Public Protector's Nkandla report.
Kasrils has today told an audience of academics, students and members of the public that under Zuma's rule there has been corruption, greed, misogyny and a "looting of the state on a grand scale".
He adds he prefers being governed by Cyril Ramaphosa, Trevor Manuel and Pravin Gordhan.
