After two terms of empty job promises Zuma has announced a plan that is totally uncalled for even the vice president is shocked.
Many are hoping this is just a sad joke and he will not implement the apartheid like idea because it will break the country apart. Some already suspect it has something to do with state capture and the Guptas.
The president said in a period of six month he would be retrenching white people in all government sectors and they will not be given any special package. Then he will wait another six month before giving the jobs back to blacks at half a salary so he could hire two times the number of fired people.
Apparently during the 6 month gap the government will be saving millions which will be used to increase budget for maintaining infrastructure.
Zuma cited that it is safe to retrench white people because it’s too easy for them to find employment in the private sectors which is currently dominated by whites for example mining, farming and factories. “It is very hard for Africans to get decent employment in the private sector, My plan is to create better opportunities for black people in the country”.
The president said he have no intention to segregate people this is just about jobs. “White companies can still bid for subcontracts under the new structure this is not apartheid. service in every institutions will be rendered to everyone equally”
EFF president Julius Malema said he second the president and he believe this is something that should have been done long ago. “Hopefully the next step will be nationalisation of mines”. Said Malema.
Many detest the president’s plan calling it apartheid ideas and discrimination. Jacob Zuma will make the official announcement on the matter in the beginning of may.
