Since the sudden fall of Tom Moyane at the decisive ANC National Leadership Meeting (NEC) this eyewitness echoed, President Cyril Ramaphosa's hand was confirmed to address the remaining loyalists of the Zuma camp.
And analysts say, as Ramaphosa clearly shows that he is following words, other Zuma dominoes have to quit because he has no moral standing in the eyes of society.
Political analyst Ralph Mathekga argues that the Campaign for Zuma camp, focusing on the ANC Secretary General, Ace Magashule, and eliminating the North West Prime Minister, Supra Mahumapelo, is unlikely to succeed because it is set to a weak base.
He said he was not only in Ramaphosa, but in the entire South African society, but he sees morality lacking in leadership as a result of corrupt allegations around him.
Mathekga said that after the collapse of Nhlanhla Nene Ramaphosa did not turn back, which set the band so high that it would be very difficult for the President to act against the Malus Gigaba Interior Minister.
"If you do not, you will see that they are guilty of the Gigabat and other crimes surrounding them," Mathekga said.
Ramaphosa's decision to release the suspended South African revenue service (Sars) was further moved by the Zuma camp to the back of his foot.
Moyane's loss is a devastating blow to Zumaitas, a fight last month that seeks to overthrow the leadership of Nasrec ANC and challenge all of its decisions.
Mahumapelo leads the campaign. He and former members of the ANC Provincial Executive Committee challenge the ANC NEC's decision to divest the Northwest Provincial Implementation Committee. They want the courts to be destroyed.
Their case was postponed yesterday at the Johannesburg Supreme Court.
Another step, which obviously undermined Ramaphosa, Magashule supported Nomvula Mokonyane's communications minister against the ongoing reduction of SABC. This, despite SABC constraints, is integrated into the presidential general plan to reduce public service, which swells and consumes the largest fraction of the national taxa.
Magashule urged Mokonyane, the board of directors and the staff to engage in dialogue on ways and means to discuss in order to avoid constraints.
"We do not believe Mokonyane undermines the independence and authority of the SABC committee," said the ANC statement.
According to Mathekga, the Zuma camp "has no feet to stand in. They can fight back, but they do not have the moral to bend and so are the South Africans."
Political analyst at Tshwane University, Levy Ndou, said Moyane could now count more heads as the Ramaphosa cleaning campaign gained momentum in the 2019 election.
"There is indeed more to the head. We saw with Moyane that the Ramaphosa was acting.
"He will not interfere with the processes, but he will follow their recommendations so no one is arguing about why he made that decision," said Ndou.
He explained that the Commissioner Sars was sensitive because of the state of health of the country.
During Moyane, Sars has taken decisions that are not in the interests of the taxpayer, but in personal interests. Below it was a huge instability and moral shortage.
"He used Sars to delay important decisions and turned Sars in the wrong direction. South Africa needs a stable Sars to ensure the country's tax revenue is safe and healthy," said Ndou.
He added that Zuma's followers were not removed because they belonged to Zuma, but for the sins they committed.
"President Ramaphosa is a man who has acted decisively against the people he has appointed, unlike Zuma, who has adopted the laissez faire approach to making mistakes," said Ndou.
