‘Corruption emerged after arms deal’

Corruption emerged after the ruling party invested billions on arms and weaponry, leader of the United Democratic Movement (UDM) Bantu Holomisa said.

Holomisa said it was unclear who was in charge of the country; "Is it the party in government or their head office outside government," he asked "

There have been attacks and manipulation of the Scorpions, the public broadcaster and the judiciary," he said.

He added, the main reason for all of this was due to access to state power and the opportunity to loot the nation's resources.

Holomisa said, comrades 'who ate' from the table of the arms deal and oilgate were fighting with their backs against the wall, even demanding that their cases must be struck off the court rolls.

"The judges of the Constitutional Court have been dubbed as a bunch of counter-revolutionaries."

"This campaign is characterised by war-talk with the clear intention of blackmailing the courts, the government and the country, with the message: You dare to charge us, and we will cause havoc," he said.

According to the UDM it was for this reason there were calls for a so-called 'political solution' to save Zuma from his dilemma.

"The people who are arguing about a deal fail to acknowledge that this person claims to be innocent." Why a deal if he is innocent? Why should we convert the whole country into a kangaroo court with ad hoc rules to suit one person, when we have established democratic institutions to deal with such matters," he said.
