It has only been a week since the big tea party at the former president Jacob Zuma's lovely home in Nkandla KwaZulu-natal. The party was requested by the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters Julius Malema and then attempt to have some quality time to talk to the former president about what is currently going on in the country. There were a lot of rumours going around about why the CIC of the EFF was going to visit the former president.
Unfortunately, the EFF leader Julius Malema failed in his task. The reason for this failure of a mission as-yet-unknown but it seems the former president is not easily moved by persons of the opposition party. With the CIC and some members of the ANC sharing the same mission, they have asked Cyril Ramaphosa to kindly do something about the matter. This then leads the whole country to ask if they will see another Nkandla tea party of the 2 presidents of the country.
Previously, the main mission for Julius Malema's visit to Nkandla was speculated and a news report for SABC News said the following:
"EFF says former President Jacob Zuma's decision to defy Constitutional Court order to appear before State Capture Commission of Inquiry is misguided. EFF's Sixolise Gcilishe says while they agree with Zuma's claims that commission is biased they urge him to reconsider his decision"
As the above article states, the whole Economic Freedom Fighters wanted to pursue Jacob Zuma to go testify at the Zondo commission as a lot is at stake. Jacob Zuma is the main component of the Zondo commission. The whole commission was created to investigate a whole series of events that were started by him.
The African National Congress in KZN has released an official request for Cyril Ramaphosa to step in and deal with the whole matter. SABC News reported the following:
"ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has asked President Cyril Ramaphosa and the party's top 6 to intervene in a matter involving former President Jacob Zuma and State Capture Commission. Zuma is refusing to appear before the Commission despite a Constitutional Court ruling ordering him to do so."
The above statement means that Cyril Ramaphosa needs to have a face to face with Jacob Zuma and ask him to reconsider his decision not to show up at the Zondo commission. Since the first tea was had to discuss the same, South Africa might see for the first time ever, two presidents of South Africa in Nkandla.
The country is still waiting to see how Cyril Ramaphosa will be planning unconvincing Jacob Zuma to appear in front of the commission. It is going to be something interesting to watch.
What is your take on the matter? Do you think Cyril Ramaphosa could make it to Jacob Zuma's tea party, is that something you would like to see?
