I Am Not Scared To Go To Jail – Zuma
President Jacob Zuma of South Africa on Saturday said he was not ‘scared of jail’.
He said this while reacting to the release of an anti-corruption report which was critical of him.
After the release of the 355-page report, thousands of protesters have called for the president’s resignation. Some opposition politicians have been suggesting that Zuma should face criminal charges.
“I’m not scared of jail. I’ve been to jail during the struggle. People think democracy is done at courts. They never mention the will of the majority‚ they always talk about courts. They never even speak to us about democratic debates because they know we are good at debates, he said.
“They think by going to courts they are intimidating the ANC. We are not going to be intimidated‚ even if it means I get arrested today‚ I am used to it. I have spent a lot of time in jail‚ you cannot threaten me with jail time .I am not scared of jail I have been there.”
