Black First Land First (BLF) founder Andile Mngxitama doesn’t believe President Jacob Zuma has done anything wrong.

Mngxitama was speaking at a panel discussion at the Tshwane University of Technology.

He accused ‘white monopoly capital’ of organising Wednesday's march by opposition parties to the Union Buildings in Pretoria. The opposition is demanding that President Zuma step down.

“President Jacob Zuma has taken a left turn. When President Zuma removes South Africa from the International Criminal Court it’s a left turn. When he supports BRICS in the manner he has, it’s a left turn. The most important left turn was in his State of the Nation speech, when he said land expropriation without compensation. This is the most radical statement you can have,” said Mngxitama.

Founder of trade union federation SAFTU Zwelinzima Vavi strongly disagreed with Mngxitama, saying the Public Protector’s State of Capture report pointed to possible corruption by President Zuma.

“The President is being asked to allow the Chief Justice to appoint a judicial commission of inquiry to put rest to the allegations in the Public Protector’s report. These are no rumours. It’s a report of a chapter nine institution,” Vavi said.
