Ever closer our clock ticks towards midnight

29 March 2012, 15:02

I was interested to note this morning that the suspension of Lieutenant General Richard Mdluli has now been lifted, this after he had been suspended due to being accused of fraud and murder.

Even more interesting is that the whole matter seems to have been swept nicely under the carpet by his connections, one of whom is our CEO Jacob Zuma, and we will never hear about any of it again. It’s gone, vanished, just like that. Apparently no longer to be discussed in the public domain – that’s us, the mere taxpayers and citizens of SA.

So much for transparency, the rule of law and any other principle we have, or had.

Now we should all know exactly where we stand with regards to what the ANC inner circle are capable of, what they are liable to do when caught out and how much power they actually wield.

We are deluding ourselves if we believe that the info bill isn’t already in use – as per the above – and that we mere mortals have any power at all. We are pawns and they will play us, as we pay them, for as long as they want.

Be aware fellow citizens, with this one step Zuma and his cronies have shown us that they will do as they please, whenever they please and with whomever they please and you will just accept it.

The E-tolls are next so don’t be surprised if you do end up paying via salary deductions, extra tax or whatever method they can devise. Because they can, and surely will do so – rest assured of that.

It’s a travesty of justice but we’ve asked for it by allowing it to happen.

As they say a country gets the government it deserves and thus we are obviously an inept lot without the guts to stand up and stop power mad individuals from abusing us, the country,  or in fact anyone, and anything, they wish to.

Gutless, spineless and weak – that’s what we’ve become and Louis Botha, Jannie Smuts and others who led our forefathers gloriously and with honour must be turning in their graves.

So much too for Madiba’s legacy, not worth the paper his speech was written on.
