It is going to get worse, much worse!

05 June 2014, 12:10

You thought now is bad, wait to see how it is going to get worse, much worse!

South Africa is indeed a ‘better place’ now than what it was, prior to 1994 for the previously and historically disadvantaged citizens of the country, but unfortunate to say, that the last decade under the ruling of Jacob Zuma, has not been representative of how things changed and changed for the better prior to him being at the helm.

We have had changes and good changes for that prior to him becoming the number 1 whom should be leading by example, but since he took over power, we have been sliding down the drain, and the speed at which things are deteriorating is getting worse by the minute and not even by the day.

The problem lays in the fact that post 05th December 2013, the legacy and stature of Nelson Mandela that was leading by example, is gone. The loyalty to the cause of the ANC has been tainted by its current leadership, and now with him being gone, the vacuum is getting bigger and bigger by the day.

He who should be leading by example, has become exactly the opposite, in his abuse of power, self enrichment, cronyism, factionalism, maladministration, mismanagement, corruption and fraud, all words that can be directly and or indirectly associated with the man in person or the government of which he is the leader.

Within the ranks of the ruling government (ANC) there is discontent and many a loyalist to the party have broken away as the general perception is that the party has lost its goal, mission vision and objective. Situations arrive where within Councils within South Africa; you find that the members, as being ANC, even vote against decisions that are initiated by the party of which they are members. (Tlokwe). This is just a small indication of how things have been derailed in the manifesto of the ruling party, and the worst is still to come.

Public protests are the order of the day, and have become the norm rather than the exception which is indicative (analytical, pinpointing, investigative) of the feelings of the people on the ground, that were supposed to have been the beneficiaries to the democracy that they voted for in 1994.

This would be the 5th democratic election that we would be voting in, and whereas we should have been in a ‘better place and situation’ than before, we find that the ruling party, is losing more and more of its original support, in that the ‘leadership’ is lacking in its mandate, and the promises that people were so gullible to previously believe, are now being questioned, in that we now have a generation of people, that are educated and ask educated questions and doubt empty promises, and can reason, that those promises can never materialized, so through the education of the people, which is the good part, the ANC has become its own worst enemy, as the people on the ground don’t believe those empty promises, and can reason that it would never be attained.

If you thought that things are bad now, you certainly are in la-la land, as the worst is yet to come, in which we are going to witness protests where members of parties are going to turn election campaign meetings into battle grounds, to voice their frustration, and unhappiness with their socio-economical situation that they find themselves in.

So be warned – the worst is yet to be! =========
