A new book based on assassination attempts on President Jacob Zuma’s life is said to be getting published soon. As per the report published on Africanews24-7, this book further means to expose the fact how WMC has planned to benefit its motives within ANC factions. “Kill Zuma By Any Means Necessary” is written by businessman and politician Gayton McKenzie, which is expected to reveal a lot of dirty facts and conspiracies meant to defame and kill President Zuma. Talking about his creation, about the attempts on Zuma’s life, McKenzie said the book will be a detailed version of all the failed assassination plans against President Zuma that never got into the general public.
As per Mckenzie, “From the poisoning attempts involving MaNtuli to another attempt at Luthuli House during a meeting of the ANC’s top six. There was near-fatal tampering to the presidential jet. One of the president’s most trusted bodyguards was operating on strict instructions to murder the old man. It’s all in the book, with the reasons why destroying Zuma has been so important to his enemies. I hope that if people can understand why Zuma is hated so much, they will actually understand what’s really in play in this country and why the stakes are so high and have always been so high. If this book achieves that, I’ll be the happiest man”. The book claims to take people back into the 1980s when Zuma came to know about the “WMC paid ANC Members” and their involvement in bringing this nation down during the Apartheid era. He is said to have spent four months flying around and meeting with people to prepare for his investigation for the same.
Moreover, in his research, McKenzie said he has exposed the state capture acts by WMC which started even before the ANC took power from the apartheid government. As per him, “I think there are all these big lies in this country that most of us have just come to accept over time, especially the one about Jacob Zuma being our biggest problem. He is far from perfect and I’m not simply blindly defending him or his record in this book. That’s not what it’s about. There’s more than enough of that around. I’m hoping to open people’s eyes to the fact of what state capture really is, how it’s a very old game that was long perfected before most of us even knew of the existence of Jacob Zuma. They need to understand that true state capture has actually imprisoned us all, and long ago already. The main thing I’m hoping to do is to turn people’s assumptions on their head because so much of what we think about South Africa is simply wrong. That’s a big task, and maybe this book can play a small part in changing people’s thinking and understanding of our history”.
With ANC elective conference around the corner, the book throws light on the fact that how Cyril Ramaphosa was ‘pushed” to the reputed designations at ANC. He also talks of how events that forced Codesa hijacked the struggle. “What went down at Codesa, for example, was the ultimate hijacking of the struggle. Young people today instinctively understand this and feel betrayed, without necessarily understanding the details and facts of how this happened. This book puts the case of what really happened quite plainly, as well as the role Cyril Ramaphosa played after being parachuted into the ANC’s top six and then appointed as the lead negotiator at Codesa in the most underhanded manner imaginable”. He expressed his obligation to release the book before the party’s elective conference to make sure the delegates should vote for their delegates only after knowing the truth. McKenzie said he doesn’t know what would be the impact of this book into the political scenarios of the country but if he could’ve kept these hidden facts to himself, that would’ve been an injustice to the masses.
In his words, “I don’t know if it will. The conference is just around the corner and people may not have time to read this book. The main reason I’ve insisted on publishing it now, though, without having any certainty or assurance about the choice those delegates are going to make, is because I don’t want to be accused later of revealing these things only when it’s ‘safe’ to do so, especially if Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma does become our first female president. I want to show the courage to state it now and say what many have been too fearful to say. I don’t want anyone to come to me and say, ‘Eh, Comrade. You knew these things. Why didn’t you warn us?’ I don’t want to be accused of knowing something that could have prevented this country from making yet another bad historic mistake and saying nothing. It’s meant long nights and hard work to try to get this book out in time, but it had to be done through a book. The information and the stories only make sense when you see the bigger picture, and that requires a lot of reading. One or two tweets and articles here and there would never be enough to convey the full impact and why this matters so much.”
The book has already sent sizzles into the political landscape as McKenzie found out about it when one of the store’s managers called them asking for legal assurances and disclaimers. He further stated that even several ANC members have asked him to not publish it as they fear it could bring down the liberation movement. “People don’t know what to make of this book. We can’t keep pretending the ANC is even one thing, or ever was one thing. It’s always been infiltrated by spies and has been working at cross-purposes with itself; that continues to be the case even today. If the ANC has to be destroyed in one way or the other, simply because of the truth, then so be it. Maybe it can find itself again in the process”
The book will be launched online first with hard copies coming around before the end of December.
