Zuma is the bigger man: iLIVE

The politics of open and visible hatred towards your opponents, as practised by Mosiua Lekota towards President Jacob Zuma, needs to be highlighted.

I find his utterances about the president lacking in the diplomacy or even common courtesy expected of a parliamentarian.

This sets a very bad example especially for the youth. We can learn a lot from how Zuma responds to the likes of Lekota, with humility and respect.
