Free Jacob Zuma Campaign gives Ramaphosa 14 days to release him from prison

The former president was sentenced to 15 months by the Constitutional Court for refusing to appear before a state capture investigation led by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

Johannesburg – The campaign for free Jacob Zuma said he was giving President Kirill Ramaphosa 14 days to release the former president.

The campaign, led by a disbanded MKMVA spokesman, Carl Niehaus, briefed the media on Friday.

Niehaus, who has is suspended by the African National Congress (ANC) after threatening instability if Zuma was arrested, Andile Lungisa, whose membership is suspended for 18 months for assaulting a Democratic Union adviser.

The campaign wants Ramaphosa to release Zuma, although he has no authority to do so unless he pardons him.

However, Zuma has yet to apply for one.

The former president was sentenced to 15 months by the Constitutional Court for refusing to appear before a state capture investigation led by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

The Free Zuma Campaign said that while it condemned the violence involving parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng, they failed to stop it while Zuma remained behind bars.

ANC member Phapano Phasha, a staunch Zuma supporter, read the campaign statement.

Although Zuma has been convicted by the Supreme Court, she claims, without providing any evidence, that Zuma is in prison because he is pushing for a radical economic transformation.

“Let us be crystal clear; we do not support violence. Our principled opposition to the long-running prosecution and now the political imprisonment of President Zuma has always been peaceful and within the law. We have never called for lawlessness and violence. “

Zuma was in power between 2009 and 2018 and is accused of undermining state institutions, including state security, the National Prosecutor’s Office (NPA) and state entities, including South African Airways (SAA), Denel, Eskom and Transnet.

Fasha said it was not true that Zuma or campaign members were not law-abiding citizens or that Zuma was corrupt.
