    The African National Congress (ANC) has given President Jacob Zuma a last chance to prove he can lead the party without scandal, but his support in party structures appears to have been weakened by the rumpus over his love child.

    A national executive committee (NEC) member closely involved in the love-child saga told the Mail & Guardian that the party has informally asked Zuma to "zip up" because the ANC will not survive another such scandal.

    Zuma confessed last week to fathering a child with Sonono Khoza, daughter of soccer boss Irvin Khoza. It is understood that he was caught off guard when Sonono told him last year that she was pregnant.

    He issued an apology last week after meeting advisers and party elders, taking responsibility for the child and expressing regret at the pain the affair had caused his family.

    Said the NEC source: "We first thought it was a private matter. But we were surprised that the outcry did not come from white people or foreign media, but from our African constituency. They must vote for us to stay in power and we must listen to them.

    "We realised that we need to change our approach or it will cost us in the 2011 local elections and beyond.

    "We really want the president to zip up and make sure this doesn't happen again. If it does, it's over. We have nothing left to defend his conduct."

    'We're forced to defend the indefensible'
    The sensitivity of the issue meant that it could not feature on any formal agenda and it was not formally raised at the national working committee meeting on Monday in Cape Town. But members "made sure JZ understands the impact of this", a Luthuli house official said.

    Those close to Zuma outlined to him in private meetings the untenable situation in which he had placed the ANC. "We're forced to defend the indefensible," the NEC member said.

    ANC leaders are especially upset that Zuma has now "handed over the moral high ground to the opposition". But the apology gave ANC members some way of deflecting criticism, particularly in Parliament.

    Party insiders said that although ANC members largely appeared to accept Zuma's apology, his support in party structures had taken a dive.

    "I know a number of people were disappointed, but they've accepted his apology," said ANC's Mpumalanga secretary, Lucky Ndinisa.

    Second term is not secure
    Apart from those in KwaZulu-Natal and the Northern Cape, provincial leaders appeared less inclined to give Zuma unconditional backing for a second term as ANC president.

    Ndinisa said Zuma's second term is not secure: "When we elected him, we didn't say it was for two terms. When we go to Mangaung in 2012, the delegates will decide. At some stage, we'll decide what kind of a leader we want based on their conduct throughout their term."

    Gauteng secretary David Makhura denied that he had previously said Zuma should serve two terms. "It wasn't about the second term. We were discussing the leadership of the ANC," he said this week.

    Even ANC NEC member Billy Masetlha would not commit himself: "2012 is still far; many things will happen between now and then."

    But Masetlha cautioned that Zuma should not be morally judged. "Zuma must lead us politically. I'm not suggesting he's an angel, but it would be unfair to judge him based on what has happened."

    KwaZulu-Natal secretary Sihle Zikalala said Zuma still had the support of his home province for a second term. Northern Cape leader Alvin Botes said he was confident Zuma's conduct would now be above reproach, leaving no doubt about his eligibility.

    "He's given us the assurance that it won't happen again, so our support for him is non-negotiable."

    There was a poor turnout for this week's Zuma roadshow in the Cape. At the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's release in Paarl on Thursday, less than a quarter of the expected 20 000 people turned up.

    Leaders of the Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans' Association, Women's League and Veterans' League still support Zuma unconditionally.

    Said Women's League deputy president Nosipho Ntwanambi: "[The issue of the love child] does not worry us, it's between the Khoza and Zuma families. You must remember, he's also a human being and he didn't breach the Constitution."

    This man had unprotected sex with a woman whom he knew was HIV positive and took a shower afterwards, to supposedly to wash the virus off.

    This didn't give any of these fools who are complaining now a clue as to what kind of man he was?

    Africans, we will forever stay losing until we learn how to elect decent leaders.

    What do you expect, his predecessor, who was supposedly Africa's Renaissance man, disputed vehemently the very link between HIV and AIDS !

    And these people seem to be more concerned about losing an election than a president dying of AIDS and sending the wrong signal to an AIDS infected country (antenatal clinic attendees rate is nearly 30%).

    THE FOLLOWING is a speech made by former South African President P.W. Botha to his Cabinet. This reprint was written by David G. Mailu for the Sunday Times, a South African newspaper, dated August 18, 1985.

    "Pretoria has been made by the White mind for the White man. We are not obliged even the least to try to prove to anybody and to the Blacks that we are superior people. We have demonstrated that to the Blacks in a thousand and one ways. The Republic of South Africa that we know of today has not been created by wishful thinking. We have created it at the expense of intelligence, sweat and blood. Were they Afrikaners who tried to eliminate the Australian Aborigines? Are they Afrikaners who discriminate against Blacks and call them Nigge*rs in the States? Were they Afrikaners who started the slave trade? Where is the Black man appreciated? England discriminates against its Black and their "Sus" law is out to discipline the Blacks. Canada, France, Russia, and Japan all play their discrimination too. Why in the hell then is so much noise made about us? Why are they biased against us? I am simply trying to prove to you all that there is nothing unusual we are doing that the so called civilized worlds are not doing. We are simply an honest people who have come out aloud with a clear philosophy of how we want to live our own White life.

    We do not pretend like other Whites that we like Blacks. The fact that, Blacks look like human beings and act like human beings do not necessarily make them sensible human beings. Hedgehogs are not porcupines and lizards are not crocodiles simply because they look alike. If God wanted us to be equal to the Blacks, he would have created> us all of a uniform colour and intellect. But he created us differently: Whites, Blacks, Yellow, Rulers and the ruled. Intellectually, we are superior to the Blacks; that has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt over the years. I believe that the Afrikaner is an honest, God fearing person, who has demonstrated practically the right way of being. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that behind the scenes, Europe, America, Canada, Australia-and all others are behind us in spite of what they say. For diplomatic relations, we all know what language should be used and where. To prove my point, Comrades, does anyone of you know a White country without an investment or interest in South Africa? Who buys our gold? Who buys our diamonds? Who trades with us? Who is helping us develop other nuclear weapon? The very truth is that we are their people and they are our people. It's a big secret. The strength of our economy is backed by America, Britain, Germany. It is our strong conviction, therefore, that the Black is the raw material for the White man. So Brothers and Sisters, let us join hands together to fight against this Black devil. I appeal to all Afrikaners to come out with any creative means of fighting this war. Surely God cannot forsake his own people whom we are. By now every one of us has seen it practically that the Blacks cannot rule themselves. Give them guns and they will kill each other. They are good in nothing else but making noise, dancing, marrying many wives and indulging in sex. Let us all accept that the Black man is the symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness and emotional incompetence. Isn't it plausible? therefore that the White man is created to rule the Black man? Come to think of what would happen one day if you woke up and on the throne sat a Kaff*ir! Can you imagine what would happen to our women? Does anyone of you believe that the Blacks can rule this country?

    Hence, we have good reasons to let them all-the Mandelas-rot in prison, and I think we should be commended for having kept them alive in spite of what we have at hand with which to finish them off. I wish to announce a number of new strategies that should be put to use to destroy this Black bug. We should now make use of the chemical weapon. Priority number one, we should not by all means allow any more increases of the Black population lest we be choked very soon. I have exciting news that our scientists have come with an efficient stuff. I am sending out more

    researchers to the field to identify as many venues as possible where the chemical weapons could be employed to combat any further population increases. The hospital is a very strategic opening, for example and should be fully utilized. The food supply channel should be used. We have eveloped excellent slow killing poisons and fertility destroyers. Our only fear is in case such stuff came in! ! to their hands as they are bound to start using it against us if you care to think of the many Blacks working for us in our

    However, we are doing the best we can to make sure that the stuff remains strictly in our hands. Secondly, most Blacks are vulnerable to money inducements. I have set aside a special fund to exploit this venue. The old trick of divide and rule is still very valid today. Our experts should work day and night to set the Black man against his fellowman. His inferior sense of morals can be exploited beautifully. And here is a creature that lacks foresight. There is a need for us to combat him in long term projections that he cannot suspect. The average Black does not plan his life beyond a year: that stance, for example,should be exploited. My special department is already working round the clock to come out with a long-term operation blueprint. I am also sending a special request to all Afrikaner mothers to double their birth rate. It may be necessary too to set up a population boom industry by putting up centres where we employ and support fully White young men and women to produce children for the nation. We are also investigating the merit of uterus rentals as a possible means of speeding up the growth of our population through surrogate mothers.

    For the time being, we should also engage a higher gear to make sure that Black men are separated from their women and fines imposed upon married wives who bear illegitimate children.

    I have a committee working on finding better methods of inciting Blacks against each other and encouraging murders among themselves. Murder cases among Blacks should bear very little punishment in order to encourage them.

    My scientists have come up with a drug that could be smuggled into their brews to effect slow poisoning results and fertility destruction. Working through drinks and manufacturing of soft drinks geared to the Blacks, could promote the channels of reducing their population. Ours is not a war that we can use the atomic bomb to destroy the Blacks, so we must use our intelligence to effect this. The person-to-person encounter can be very effective.

    As the records show that the Black man is dying to go to bed with the White woman, here is our unique opportunity. Our Sex Mercenary Squad should go out and camouflage with Apartheid Fighters while doing their operations quietly administering slow killing poison and fertility destroyers to those Blacks they thus befriend.

    We are modifying the Sex Mercenary Squad by introducing White men who should go for the militant Black woman and any other vulnerable Black woman. We have received a new supply of prostitutes from Europe and America who are desperate and too keen to take up the appointments.

    My latest appeal is that the maternity hospital operations should be intensified. We are not paying those people to help bring Black babies to this world but to eliminate them on the very delivery moment. If this department worked very efficiently, a great deal could be achieved.

    My Government has set aside a special fund for erecting more covert hospitals and clinics to promote this programme. Money can do anything for you. So while we have it, we should make the best use of it. In the meantime my beloved White citizens, do not take to heart what the world says, and don't be ashamed of being called racists. I do not mind being called the architect and King of Apartheid. I shall not become a monkey simply because someone has called me a monkey. I will still remain your bright star... His Excellency Botha."
