'No' to Zille is weak leadership: iLIVE
By turning down a request that the army assist the police in the Western Cape ganglands, President Jacob Zuma has shown his true leadership qualities ("Zille expected Zuma's 'No'", yesterday).
Has he not taken cognisance of the fact that, weeks after the police commissioner, another so-called great leader, claimed that the police can do the job without help from the army, more deaths have occurred?
Does our president not see that the presence of armed soldiers will at least keep guns off the street (ensuring the safety of innocent citizens who are often caught in the cross-fire) while the police do the business of bringing the gang leaders and their lackeys to book?
What type of leader turns a blind eye to a war in the suburbs? Or is it another ploy by the ANC to make things difficult for the DA-run province?
The scary part is that here we have a man seeking a second term.
