Waldimar Pelser, kykNET reporter and editor of Rapport

A local TV presenter on kykNET has called Jacob Zuma a tsotsi, corrupt, sexist and a strategically brilliant villain during a show… and the internet can’t get enough of it.


Johannesburg, South Africa – The President has been wildly criticized after his recent Cabinet reshuffle, which saw the finance minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas fired. The rand fell against the US dollar and S&P and Fitch downgraded the country’s credit ratings to “junk status”.

Thousands of protesters demanding the resignation of President Jacob Zuma took to the streets in pickets, marches and human chains across South Africa on the 7 April 2017 and will do so again today, on his excellencies birthday – 12 April 2017.

The Washington Post, New York Times, London Evening Standard and even the Sydney Morning Herald have all been reporting on South Africa’s current state with complex discussions on the governance and lack of leadership in the country.

But no one can hit the nail on the head quite like a South African.

Waldimar Pelser, kykNET reporter and editor of Rapport, delivered his take on the current state of the nation by not holding back on a single word during “Verslag in Gesprek”, an actuality program dealing with current affairs.

Pelser starts by suggesting that maybe the ANC top six must be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, because how else can you explain Gwede Mantashe backtracking following the NWC meeting?

And goes on to call the president a a tsotsi, corrupt, sexist and a strategically brilliant villain. It doesn’t stop there.
