CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CONCERNED OVER DELAY IN REMOVING PRESIDENT ZUMA FROM OFFICE

CAPE TOWN– The Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry has expressed concern over the delay in determining the fate of South African President Jacob Zuma.

Chamber President Janine Myburgh said here Thursday that earlier media reports stating that the president would resign had lifted the mood of business and the country, but now there is a delay.

She added that there was also reason for concern about the concessions which might have to be made in order to secure Zuma’s exit.

She said South Africans must ask whether Zuma could do further damage to the country and the economy.

Myburgh pointed out that at the national elective conference of the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC) in December, Zuma unilaterally promised free tertiary education without any plan or budget for it.
