Capitalising on the Marikana Massacre can be...detrimental for

25 June 2014, 15:16

It seems some Political Parties like the EFF have taken advantage on capitalizing on the issue of Marikana Massacre. It should be understood whoever tackles this unfortunate event should stride carefully, since we talking about the lives of desperate Human Being’s who suffered a dreadful fate trying to earn a better living for their Family’s.

The EFF is blaming the ANC for this “day” we shall always remember throughout the history of S.A. This is no time to be pointing fingers at each other, we should all put the effort to recapture the lost Heritage of this Country, and by “unifying our Resources” to build a better future for ALL, that should be our Main objective for this Country.

One Nation (iSizwe Sethu) through UBUNTU is what we all want to achieve for all Races; and Cultures in this Rainbow Nation of South Africa.

The Marikana massacre should not divide the Nation but “unify” us, and hence this event forms part of our history of which the government should take into cognizance to resolve such matters hastily, amongst other eminent issues affecting the despondent citizens of this country such as Women and Children Abuse; Inefficient Education System; High Unemployment Rate; Poverty; HIV-Aids; and Crime, including White Collar Crime, perpetrated by Corrupt Public Officials in the name of “patriotism”.

The Government of South Africa, led by Honourable President Jacob Gezeyihlekisa Zuma is running its last quarter mile, and the NDP is the decisive scorecard for the party. Genuinely, and discreetly implemented the NDP could be a success story, but it only depends on the role players who have been voted to Office to take us through the scourges that are slowly destroying the Moral fiber of this Country. The next 5(five) years are very crucial for the ANC, and how the Presidency Strategizes his available Resources to fulfill the Mandate of the leading Political Party. To ensure the Party remains in the lead when it comes to votes, and maintaining the remaining loyal voters the ANC has a stringent task ahead of making sure it fulfills the “promises” set forth during their Rallies.

We should all “work” together both the Private and Public Society to ensure the success of the NDP, not for ANC, but for our fellow Citizens who are deprived of the Basic necessities of life. Let’s build a United South Africa (iSizwe Sethu) and make sure this country is Socially and Economically better and stable compared with the rest of the world, in the next 16 yrs to come.
