ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA ON JOHAN RUPERT'S CALL FOR PRESIDENT JACOB ZUMA TO RESIGN
25/03/2015

The ANC in Bokone Bophirima (North West) is not surprised, but highly angered by Johan Rupert's call for President Jacob Zuma to resign. Johan Rupert ranks amongst the most advanced beneficiaries of the atrocious apartheid system, declared a crime against humanity by the United Nations. It is Johan Rupert and other apartheid beneficiaries who still continue to benefit from the opportunities created by the ANC-led democratic government. The continued growth of his business empire in our country and globally is largely as a direct result of political and economic stability build by the ANC-led government.

South Africans must remember that the Ruperts had close ties with the racist creators of apartheid, the National Party. Anthony Rupert the father of Johan Rupert, was so popular within the NP that in 1966 he was endorsed by the leadership of the National Party to become the Prime Minister, contesting against Hendrik Verwoerd. It is now very surprising that this erstwhile sympathizer of apartheid is purporting to be the agent of freedom and development for the previously disadvantaged communities. It is also worth remembering that this so-called 'state capture' is not a new phenomenon, the ANC policies of radical economic transformation are primarily aimed at liberating our state, which was captured over 300 years ago by the likes of the Ruperts enterprises and other big businesses in our country and abroad.

Because the ANC believes in reconciliation and nation building, it has always given Rupert and other people like him an opportunity to continue thriving under the ANC-led government. The ANC's strong commitment to reconciliation must not be abused. We urge Rupert to demonstrate maturity and remorse and humbly request a meeting with President Zuma and the ANC to apologise for his careless statements, failing which the ANC may be forced to explore other means at its disposal to deal with his obstreperous call for President Zuma to resign.
