Our reporter has learned that the DA intends to create a
presidential protection unit for Jacob Zuma.
When the leader of the DA, Mmusi Maimane, was asked to clarify the reason for this unprecedented step, Mmusi explained.
” This is purely an exercise of economics. If we want to win the
national elections in 2019, we will have to spend in the order of
R900m to a billion Rand on our election campaign.However, if we create a presidential protection unit for Zuma, it will only cost in the region of R100m to keep him safe to carry on as president until 2019. We have calculated that by that time he would have done so much damage to the ANC that we would not need to spend any money on our campaign.”
