ANC Misgovernance

23 June 2012, 08:21

In light of the latest debacle where the minister of education was ORDERED by the courts to provide text books to learners in Limpopo and then didn’t – through no fault of her own obviously – I think we can take it as a given that the entire cabinet, nay the entire ANC government, believe that they are not answerable to the judiciary.

Thus they are also not answerable to us, the electorate.

These ministers, no different to petty dictators when one really thinks about it with their penchant for the high life, top of the range automobiles, motorcades and overseas travel at the drop of a hat, have now become both a disgrace and a national embarrassment to us, the citizens of this great country.

I would therefore suggest that in line with their policy of never resigning, regardless of the act they have, or as in this case have not, performed – even when ordered to by the judiciary – we too need to adopt a hard-line approach.

Let us take them to court, hit them where they – in all their glory, lording it over us mere mortals – will feel it the most. They have made money their master, let us now drag them through the courts they are so determined to overrule and undermine, then we shall see who they really serve.

It’s become glaringly obvious, even amongst rank and file ANC supporters, that these scavengers and self-serving excuses for civil servants are not in the least bit interested in the wellbeing of the citizens of SA - the people they elected to serve - and they will never resign, never take responsibility and never care one iota about their mismanagement and the lives they are destroying.

Whilst our courts remain – thus far at least – independent and internationally recognised we need to strike a telling blow against the incompetence and maladministration being perpetrated on our children, on us and on our rights as citizens of South Africa.

Justice can only prevail if enough people are willing to stand up, be counted and tell those who have made it their mission to rule unjustly, for whatever reason, that they shall no longer do so. We are enough, we have justice on our side – but not time – and we need to now make our stand.

The ANC government are responsible – responsible to us – for education, for health care, for housing, for policing, for defence, for power generation, for water purification and supply, for administration of the civil service. We pay them to provide these things and they undertook – when they took the oath of office – to fulfil these duties. They haven’t and now we seek redress from them, from the government and from the judiciary. This is our right.

We also have the private resources, funds and motivation because we are a people - a nation - and we are despairing.

To the courts people, let us take them on, whilst we still can.

Be careful what you wish for

In a country that was formed out of protest action, mobilised by great demonstrations and inspired by immense speeches, why are we so seemingly desperate to give it all up again? Read more...

Throughout the decades, and even in South Africa, this reference to the commanding heights became almost synonymous with the socialist and populist project. I think I have even heard Malema on occasion referring to the need to get control of the “heights”. Read more...
