Letters | SA is a failed state, thanks to CR inaction

Ramaphosa is implicated in the Zondo report because he had his usual inertia and did nothing to stop or blow the whistle on state capture.

President Cyril Ramaphosa.

With regard to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s inability to lead this country, South Africa is now another failed African state.

There has been an energy crisis since 2008, and the top energy experts are repeatedly asked the same questions by the news anchors, and their answers have been the same for years.

We need additional generation capacity, and wind and solar energy could have been added to the grid years ago. Nothing has been done to rectify this grave situation.

South Africa could be grey listed shortly as we have not put sufficient measures in place to fight money laundering and terrorist financing.

The U.S.’s FBI has named 10 people residing in South Africa who have been financing Isis terrorists in Mozambique.

It is embarrassing that once again, international law-enforcement agencies have followed the money trail and sent SA the report.

Ramaphosa is implicated in the Zondo report because he had his usual inertia and did nothing to stop or blow the whistle on state capture.

He has yet to apologise to the nation over his inaction, and how he facilitated Zuma to continue with state capture. All he wanted was to seize power and become the president at all costs. He did not care what was happening to the country under his watch.

In the face of his enemies within the ANC, he has shown that he does not have the anatomy to stand up to anyone, let alone lead this country. There are numerous vulgar jokes regarding his lack of anatomy, which are hilarious, but the situation is dire.
