Crime ANC a problem for tourism - Zuma". There, fixed it. The gall of this man. He is as crooked as uncle Willie's dick, up for hundreds of charges of corruption, talking about the law being ineffective blah..blah.. meantime, back at the ranch, his cronies are shunting the perfectly good laws in place today by releasing his bestest buddy Schabir Shaik on a contrived medical report. Have these people no shame?! Read the shit he just spewed and tell me you don't have a need to hurl big ones.
Crime remains a thorn in the side of the tourism sector, ANC president Jacob Zuma said in Johannesburg on Tuesday.
Addressing the Tourism Business Council of SA (TBCSA), Zuma said criminality was a reason people thought twice about visiting South Africa.
"Our view is that we should eradicate criminality," he said.
"We need to align the justice system to deal with what is regarded as weaknesses to ensure that... it is able to support the various departments, to ensure that crime is dealt with.
"That will include a glance at our laws, whether our laws are in keeping with the demands to eradicate crime.
"We are dealing with an abnormal situation in terms of the rate of crime, whatever we do should reflect that," Zuma said.
He was addressing the TBCSA in Sandton, Johannesburg, on issues facing the tourism sector and its potential for growth.
Zuma was accompanied by ANC treasurer-general Mathews Phosa.
Attempts to get comments from the African National Congress president on the release from prison of his former financial adviser, Schabir Shaik, were unsuccessful.
Shaik was released on medical parole in Durban on Tuesday.
