The first mention of the infamous Spy Tapes, was on the Friends of Jacob Zuma website, then they were included in the novel Hero of the Struggle. The Spy Tapes were intercepted telephone conversations between Bulelani Nguka and Leonard McCarthy, who were manipulating the judicial process, to minimize the chances of Jacob Zuma at the ANC Polokwane leadership conference. The head of the National Prosecuting Authority Bulelani Nguka had requested the Scorpions boss Leonard McCarthy, to obtain the view of the team on bringing charges just before the ANC Polokwane leadership conference, this is construed as unlawful exploitation of the courts for political gain. The tapes were obtained legally with a court order; and the duty of any intelligence agency is to hand over information on unlawful actions, the source of the information remains a state secret unless ruled otherwise by novelists. Below are excerpts from the Spy Tapes, which prove beyond any reasonable doubt, that there was political interference in the Jacob Zuma court case.
November 26, 2007 20h43 (Conversation between Bulelani Nguka and Leonard McCarthy, three weeks before Polokwane)
BN: You are the only one who can save this country from madness.
LM: What does the big man say?
BN: I don’t know, I will call him tonight.
LM: I did what you said I should do.
BN: You did the right thing
LM: I received a strong memorandum to charge and charge now.
South African opposition leader Helen Zille is determined to unearth who ordered the surveillance on the National Director of Public Prosecutions (Bulelani Ngcuka), and the head of the elite police unit called the Scorpions (Leonard McCarthy), Helen Zille has spent R10 million in court fees over five years to obtain this information. Why on earth did did she not spend R100 at Amazon to buy Hero of the Struggle, where Zille would discover that Zuma’s lawyers obtained the tapes from secret agent Klaus Kaaskop of DIRT, the Dutch Institute of Refugee Tracing has many contacts in the highly secret Institute of South African National Entelligence (INSANE). Had she bothered to read the book Helen Zille would have discovered, there was no direct evidence that President Thabo Mbeki ordered the political interference in the Zuma court case, as there is no clear evidence that Jacob Zuma agreed to a bribe. Both men appeared to be the victims of pushy journalists, could the ‘big man’ mentioned in the tapes be the kingmaker Sunday Times editor, in the African vernacular ‘big’ implies grossly fat and Mondli Makhanya is founder of the Grill House Gang.
Hero of the Struggle is a remarkable book, first published in May 2011 it tells the full story of the persecution of Jacob Zuma, and how he was saved from imprisonment by a prescient writer named Will Powers. Perhaps one day Will Powers will be celebrated as the Emile Zola of South African literature, a writer who unerringly guided his country while rescuing the persecuted Jacob Zuma, exactly like French writer Emile Zola defended the falsely accused Captain Alfred Dreyfus. In his battle against the liberal press Will Powers used two sharp swords, the first was the DIRT organisation of his longtime Dutch friend Klaus Kaaskop, and the second was the local Friends of Jacob Zuma website. Through his wit and his prescience Will soon won the Friends over, then he began to direct them, and the site became a bastion of defence for the beleaguered Jacob Zuma. There were lawyers on the Friends of JZ website, Will considered their arguments and used the best of them, and there were politicians with startling information. Under the guiding hand of Will Powers the Friends turned into a razor sharp legal team, and it boded ill for the pushy liberal journalists, the Spy Tapes were first revealed on the Friends of Jacob Zuma website.
On April 6, 2009 the National Prosecuting Authority dropped all charges against Jacob Zuma, citing political and media interference in the case, Jacob Zuma became president of South Africa on May 8, 2009. The manipulative South African press were terrified and set up a fearful yapping, that freedom of speech was under threat in South Africa, which indeed it was. Reporters without Borders 2008 index of press freedom, ranked South Africa thirty first out of one hundred and sixty seven countries, higher than America or Spain. Hero of the Struggle described how the South African press abused that freedom, by attempting to control politics through imprisoning an innocent man, the local liberal journalists learned their liberalism from England. Where editors justified hacking telephones in order to reveal the truth to readers, while right under the prying press noses their friend Jimmy Savile openly raped little children, not a whisper from the ‘truth telling’ press who were too busy exposing peccadilloes of famous actors. Likewise not a whisper from the South African leader of the opposition, at the disturbing increase in murders in 2012 and 2013, Helen Zille is too busy putting President Zuma in jail.
The sinister fact about literary censorship in England, is that it’s voluntary, unpopular ideas can be silenced and inconvenient facts kept dark, without need for any official ban – George Orwell.
George Orwell got it dead right, which is why you won’t see Hero of the Struggle in any South African bookshop, newspapers and books are the preserve of liberal journalists. They use this control over communications to advance personal political agendas, after the ascendency of Jacob Zuma to the presidency, the press attacks heightened to a crescendo of venomous hatred. Newspapers commented mockingly on his traditional Zulu lifestyle, while Helen Zille spent R10 million attempting to reinstate charges, the immense contribution Jacob Zuma has made to his country was ignored. Yet history recounts that after the ANC was unbanned in 1990, Zuma was instrumental in organising the vital Groote Schuur Minute, which resulted in the start of negotiations for the end of white rule. Jacob Zuma also played a pivotal role in bringing peace between the ANC and the Inkatha Party of Chief Buthelezi, his efforts may have prevented a civil war, so the nation owes a great debt to this man whom the journalists wish to destroy. By 2014 President Zuma began to buckle under the remorseless attacks, newspapers gloated about his unsteady appearance and obvious weight loss, which resulted in a stay in hospital. Liberal journalists sharpened their knives and Helen Zille’s eyes glinted, had President Zuma finally been struck out, if you want to find out read the article titled Three Strikes.
