Every one from man on the streets to opposition parties welcomes President Jacob Zuma actions as brave and courageous. Helen Zille went as far as saying “it is better late than never”. Indeed his actions are commendable, but are it sincere?

The fact that Gwen Mahlangu Nkabinde and Sicelo Shiceka have been fire sound very hollow to me, these guys are just going without any accountability.

It seems like our president is playing politics, he unleashed oil gate commission outcomes. When it turned out to be a non-starter he unleashed the second wave of attack by means of reshuffle.

Thula Nxesi has replaced Baloyi, we all know there is no love lost between Baloyi and Public servants. We know the song by workers when they are on strike “Samthata uBaloyi sambeka e pitoli now Voetsek” now his comrades will be saying “Voetsek” to him. This was done in order to buy sometime from COSATU, which seems to be a divided house every time they communicate to the media.
