Dear Kgalema Motlanthe

23 October 2012, 14:18

If numbers do lie (apparently Jacob Zuma is ahead of you in terms of nominations for the Mangaung Idols competition) you should be the new tenant at tuinhuis now known as Mahlamba Ndlopfu and you could deliver your second state of the nation adress ,as a former Robben Island political prisoner(1977-1987) you have according to an un written law right to be president South Africa but this not why i penned a letter to you my good sir

You are of few political leaders that is not very well documented but following your active political career from 1992 till now i was temted to investigate what potentially could be my future president, it was alleged that you were reluctant into joining the SACP  back then,today if media reports are correct you do not have a good relation with the SACP one wonders if you will able to unify and strethen the tripartite alliance into working for the man on the street

During your time as ANC secretary general (1998-2007) you embarked on a programme much like what Gwede Mantashe is embarking  of wishing to transform the judiciary so the ANC can rule with impunity and that ghost of apartheid could not influence decision done by your party this lead to one Bulelani Ngquka being a beneficiary of your project and need not i say more about the chap, then the ANC went in a period i coined the AIDS denialistic period and the chief denialist was the pipe man Mr Thabo Mbeki who denied that HIV causes AIDS and proudly hired one Manto Msimang to head up a campaign of beetroot, garlic remedy to HIV ,during this time you came in as supporting the idea of our former president which i wonder if you still do now.

Recently you have aquired the services of a ghost writer to pen you an account of your life this i find as the idealistic explaination on why many South African leaders lack the intellectual ability to explain themself and they thought on anything (see Kwame Nkrumah, Neo Colonialism, Julius Nyerere, Crusade for Liberation),your regard on intellectualism leaves one to wonder if you would be able to deliver textbooks in Limpopo, One Julius Malema is alleged  in wikipedia releases that he cant understand you when you talk but i will not take a word from a man who couldnt understand his wood work teacher

During  your the ANC centenary celebration you made a remark that simply  explains your leadership style you said "the leadership will enjoy the cake on behalf of you through they mouth)

"meet the new boss same as the old one" Peter Townsend
