The Civil Society Network Against Corruption has described the visit and honour of South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma by the Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha as embarrassing and I agree.
Lanre Suraj, CSNAC’s Chairman, said in a statement on Sunday the honour bestowed on Mr. Zuma would embolden the president to tell his people he is celebrated abroad.
It is embarrassing that a state government controlled by the All Progressives Congress which is fighting corruption could play host to Mr. Zuma, allegedly a corrupt leader in the current assembly of heads of state in the African Union and portray him as a hero before a group of African youth,” Mr. Suraj continued.
A few crime President Zuma has been convicted and acquitted of, just in case Gov Rochas does not know:
- He was found guilty of corruption by the court and asked to return $500,000 stolen from the public treasury to expand his private house to accommodate his many wives
- The people of South Africa are currently demanding the resignation of a leader who has brought shame and dishonour to the country of Nelson Mandela.
- On Friday, the Supreme Court of Appeal ruled that Mr. Zuma must face prosecution over almost 800 charges of corruption relating to an arms deal in the 1990s.
Allegedly, This is the same statue that cost 6 million rands to biuld but was rejected by South Africans when it was announced it would be erected in South Africa in honor of Zuma. So it has found a new home in Nigeria. Very embarrassing indeed.
The list goes on, but a Nigerian Governor thought it was wise to celebrate this man our country, even after Xenophobia attacks on Nigerians and other Africans in South Africa. Like what type of weed do our Nigeria politicians smoke?
