  • We must put African unity into practice — Zuma

Zuma was on a visit to Imo State, Nigeria, to strengthen economic ties when the state governor Rochas Okorocha unveiled the statue.

"In asking President Zuma to address officials of the Imo State Government, is Governor Okorocha not aware that the people of South Africa are now demanding the resignation of a leader who has allegedly brought shame and dishonour to the country of Nelson Mandela?"

Nigerian multi-billionaire and the governor for Imo State Owelle Okorocha also conferred the highest award in the state, the Imo State Award, on Zuma.

CSNAC said, "Is Governor Okorocha not aware that Mr. Zuma has also been indicted for allowing an Indian family to influence the appointment of his cabinet members?"

"Whatever we do, Africanism must run through our veins and we must put African unity in practice and not just in speech", Zuma said.


The South African president is also under fire for allegations of corruption and abuse of power in his ruling African National Congress (ANC). "That is why in our era, we have a government that will begin to make economic laws, because if the economic power is not there, there is very little you can do for the poor and the oppressed".

Mr. Zuma has faced criticism for remaining silent on the matter.

The honor to the former South African president was done in appreciation of his selfless service to mankind. The infamous Spy Tapes charges were reinstated against the president on Friday after the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein found that Zuma should be charged.

The governor said poverty nearly denied him education.

Since Governor Okorocha is part of the APC-led government with mantra of zero tolerance for corruption, he must tender a public apology to the people of Nigeria for promoting President Zuma who has been adjudged to be a corrupt leader by the South African judiciary. "It's not the best PR exercise, if you ask me", said Adetunuji Omotolo, a representative of the group.
