This is where other countries around the world would like rally together and cause a mass viral facebook update with #zumaiscorrupt tags. Why are South Africans so lazy???

Well to be fair, this would happen in any company in the private sector as well. Bad mouthing your boss in public will generally lead to this.

Government is very different to the private sector. They are supposed to be accountable to us.
Also, whistleblowers in the private sector are (supposed to be) protected.

This +1

People need to remember that Zuma is a public servant, and that he is peddling our tax money.

it's a problem that even free speach is so limited in south africa, stating facts get you in trouble

There is the small matter that there is no legal finding of corruption against JZ

I'd just like to point out something otherwise the false nature of this post starts being accepted as a de facto truth.

Free speech is enshrined in the constitution. However, there is a contingency that defines 'hate speech', so, while you are entitled to express your opinion, doing so in a way which may be seen "to spread, incite, promote or justify hatred based on intolerance" is prohibited. http://www.echr.coe.int/Documents/FS_Hate_speech_ENG.pdf

That said, the notion that Zuma (or the ANC) are above criticism is dangerously close to Mugabe territory.

So is it okay to say .... for example ...... Mr. Molefe is a petty thief but Zuma is a professional?

There's difference between holding elected officials to account and just ranting and throwing insults around.

Thread title is misleading - it gives the sense that it is applicable to everybody.

Goverrnment Officials - Call Zuma corrupt on Facebook and you’re fired

That should be the title.

Call Zuma corrupt on private facebook profile - disciplinary hearing.
Call Zuma corrupt in parliament - no action?

again, do you have legal proof Molefe is a thief? If not it is not okay to say that.

Call Zuma corrupt on private facebook profile - disciplinary hearing.

you should read up on parliamentary privilege
