President Jacob Zuma’s son, Edward, called ANC members Derek Hanekom and Pravin Gordhan representatives of “white monopoly capital fronts and anti-majoritarian rule”.
In an open letter written in his personal capacity, Edward Zuma slammed the dissenting former ministers of tourism and finance, who have called on the president to step down.
“It was at the ANC’s recent fifth National Policy Conference of the ANC that Derek Hanekom, a white, white monopoly capitalist offspring – who is no better than a vile dog trained to maul a black skin, showed us his true colours – and how the struggle of our people has been infiltrated by enemies – the racist-paternalistic minority.
“It was during one of the economic transformation commission sessions that this minority champion white racist Afrikaner anti-majoritarian sell-out vomited on our native black people – the ANC, its comrades, and on our quest to address the economic and the historical land dispossession of our people – by saying the call for ‘expropriation without compensation’ is nonsense.
“Hanekom the white Afrikaner askari showed us clearly what he thinks of issues of black landlessness.”
Edward Zuma also hit out at Gordhan, who has publicly called for the president to step aside.
The president’s son called Gordhan “one of the most corrupt cadres of the ANC who thinks African natives are no better than just being sugar cane cutters who must be forever subservient to a master like him for sustenance.
He said Gordhan was a stooge of white and white monopoly capital.
“The sell-out Gordhan wants natives to be perennially marginalised and always eat the leftovers dished by Indians and the white minority and its capital network. Gordhan as Gandhi sees black African natives as a low caste; K***irs who are subhuman and deserve no status beyond that definition.
Edward Zuma accused Gordhan of being corrupt in trying to destabilise the national carrier, SAA, and of using his nephew Ketso Gordhan and daughter to loot. He also claimed billions went missing during Gordhan’s tenure at Treasury.
The letter concludes by saying Edward Zuma would write a series of open letters, during which he will reveal more information about Hanekom.
