Dear DA Supporter 

With only 8 days to go, the DA is doing everything in its power to stop Jacob Zuma from getting a two-thirds majority on 22 April. We cannot give Zuma the power to unilaterally change the Constitution.

Under Jacob Zuma, the ANC disbanded the Scorpions to protect its leaders from corruption investigations. It got rid of the head of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Vusi Pikoli, because he would not drop the charges against Zuma. This week, the Acting Head of the NPA, Mokotedi Mpshe buckled to ANC pressure and withdrew the charges. There is every chance that Zuma’s ANC got Shaik out of prison in return for his silence on the Zuma matter.

Who knows what Jacob Zuma will do if he is given the power to change the Constitution?

We are running a bigger election campaign than ever before and we are working hard to turn out as many of our supporters as possible to vote on Election Day. We must stop a Zuma two-thirds majority.

But that is not enough.

Jacob Zuma must not be allowed to run our country if he is guilty of corruption. The DA is determined to see Zuma have his day in court. This is the only way his innocence can be proven. There is no other way.

The DA is fighting the dropping of charges against Jacob Zuma with everything we have. Our first step is to prove in court that the NPA’s dropping of the charges was irrational and unlawful.

We need your help.

Geagte DA Ondersteuner

Met net 8 dae oor, doen die DA alles wat hy kan om te sorg dat Jacob Zuma op 22 April nié ’n meerderheid van twee derdes kry nie. Ons kan Zuma nie die mag gee om die Grondwet eensydig te wysig nie.

Onder Jacob Zuma het die ANC die Skerpioene ontbind om sy leiers teen korrupsie-ondersoeke te beskerm. Hy het van Vusi Pikoli, die hoof van die Nasionale Vervolgingsgesag (NVG), ontslae geraak omdat hy die aanklagte teen Zuma nie wou laat vaar nie. Vandeesweek het Mokotedi Mpshe, die Waarnemende Hoof van die NVG, voor die ANC se druk geswig en die aanklagte teruggetrek. Daar is ’n sterk moontlikheid dat Zuma se ANC gesorg het dat Shaik uit die tronk kom, in ruil vir sy stilswye oor die Zuma-aangeleentheid.

Wie weet wat Zuma sal doen as hy die mag het om die Grondwet te wysig?

Ons bedryf ’n veel groter verkiesingsveldtog as ooit tevore, en ons werk hard om te sorg dat so veel van ons ondersteuners as moontlik op Stemdag gaan stem. Ons moet seker maak dat Zuma nie ’n meerderheid van twee derdes kry nie.

Dit is egter nie genoeg nie.

Jacob Zuma moet ons land nie kan bestuur as hy aan korrupsie skuldig is nie. Die DA is vasbeslote om te sorg dat Zuma sy dag in die hof beleef. Dis al manier waarop sy onskuld bewys kan word. Daar is geen ander manier nie.

Die DA baklei met alles wat ons het teen die terugtrekking van die aanklagte teen Jacob Zuma. Ons eerste stap is om in ’n hof te bewys dat die NVG se terugtrekking van die aanklagte irrasioneel en onwettig was.

Ons het u hulp nodig.

U kan tot die redding van Suid-Afrika se demokrasie bydra deur ’n skenking vir ons saak teen Zuma te maak. Kliek hier om ’n veilige aanlynbetaling te maak.

As ons saamstaan, kan ons seker maak dat die oppergesag van die reg in Suid-Afrika oorleef.

Met vriendelike groete

Helen Zille
