Is there a difference between ANC and an abusive partner?

21 December 2012, 14:04
The way the ANC is executing their approach strikes me more like the abnormal functions of a deadly abusive relationship.

An abusive partner will strike the victim more and more again and after enjoying whatever their actions were, what they come up with is, I’m sorry, I’ve learned from my past mistakes, I will never do it again, I know I am a bad person but I can do better….But after few days they are back to their usual carcinogenic behaviour.

Correct me if I’m wrong, every time they have met, we hear about their fantastic plans that even leaves their oppositions gobsmacked. I must admit that even I sometimes get swept off my feet when I analyse the brilliant plans coming from their mouth but have they ever implemented them? How different are they from the abusive person?

Post Polokwane? the cabinet was rejuvenated we saw new faces being brought in. Tokyo was overwhelmingly applauded and was seen as the reviver especially with his business experience, he was going to bring the needed value in the cabinet. Post Mangaung? we see the same phenomenon emerging again but this time, Ramaphosa is the wild card. Who’s fooling who here? Why are we accepting to be abused?

Those who were expelled for corruption are being rewarded with new posts, those who are for the good principles are being expelled. Say no to abuse, enough is enough.
