The E-toll conundrum has brought about an epiphany among black people; as to what they are really voting for. In recent years townships have been marred by violence due to poor service delivery, sweet equivocations of a better life, uttered by government soothe the bitter beast of protest. Now with the implementation of the E-tolling system, that dormant beast will rise again.
Without any form of hyperbole the government is merely driven by the prospects of capital rather than fulfilling obligations and promises they echoed prior to the elections. When you voice facts and opinions on the poor governance in the country the government label you as being counter revolutionary. The ANC stated that they would create jobs and alleviate poverty, but it is so ironic how cadre deployment lingers in the same sentence. Fellow Africans stated that my previous article “Apartheid’s black son” spoke heresy towards the ANC gods. Since when is truth heresy? Send me to the gallows, for the truth I shall gladly put my neck on the line.
Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane says there's no turning back on the implementation of the e-tolling system at the end of April. This is despite outcry from Cosatu and other civil society organizations. The E-tolling system is another nail to the ANC coffin, but ignorance tends to reincarnate a carcass that reeks of corruption. Marching failed to move government’s firm stance on implementing the E-toll system. Man’s epiphany came a little too late…poor service delivery, corruption and Tenderpreneurship; the red flags were there, but still some opted to venture into landmines of uncertainty; decapitated by the consequences of our actions – we are reduced to our knees; unable to stand up for ourselves.
I guess in 2014 the ANC will have an epiphany of their own, that black people are fed up. Rise from the party that has crippled you, by exercising your democratic rights sensibly. The only good in the E-toll system is how different races unite towards one goal.
E-TOLL CAN KISS MY CAR’S REAR END.
