A few months ago, author William Gumede described Zuma as someone with a narcissistic personality disorder — a set of traits defined by Austrian psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut as “including an exaggerated sense of superiority, a lack of self-awareness about the impact of their behaviour and having a disdain for others, who they devalue to validate their own grandiosity”. These people lack empathy, have a distorted sense of reality and are incapable of seeing anything from anyone else’s perspective. Narcissists like Zuma, Gumede argues, can’t accept responsibility and don’t care if they take down entire countries with them. The events at Nkandla, sadly for Zuma, only reinforced that perspective.
If these allegations by ex Justice William Heath are true, this is going to be a huge scandal. Money qoute:
Speaking on Moneyweb Radio Monday night, Heath painted a picture of how the police, steered by controversial national commissioner Jackie Selebi not only failed to act on evidence given to them, but appeared to purposely bungle the investigation into Kebble’s death. Selebi is (or certainly was) a friend of Agliotti.
Judge Heath, of course, is not coming to the party with a spotless reputation. He was after all employed by Kebble in an attempt provide a veneer of respectability to his operation.BACK TO TOP
