Justice should help us build up for the better

07 March 2014, 13:51

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi, @756writing

Lives of people like Desmond Tutu, Thabo Mbeki, Nelson Mandela, etc got me thinking that what else is there for South Africa (SA) and its young people beyond their lives. My suggestion as they had been doing is that let's be champions of today's challenges.

What they brought us was not means to an end, but to carry on building our country for the better of our lives. Success is a process. We are free to do something about poverty, inequalities, etc so it’s up on us to play our part.

Listening to the media in general finding that people in South Africa, everyone especially if you know how to be on the right place at the right time, everyone regardless of race get opportunities. Just that still in SA many still don't know how to capitalize on strength doing it on our own. With what we have we need to open changes even for those around us.

At the end of the year I went for MTN Zakhele shareholder info session thinking of how leaders could be like Rector in dealing with economic struggle or freedom manner. I mean I never really paid registration fee at University of the Western Cape (UWC) as others and with National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) I never owed the university. Just think of 2008 at UWC I paid nothing from my pocket. It's just long lines. Money yea, but it’s not an issue if you have tolerance and patience. The education system is rich, than just doing nothing, you get bursaries to ease up. Our education and economy must teach and allow people to own property. That is up to us to make our lives better.

Hein Scheepers, a brotherly friend of mine on facebook has a picture wearing an Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) red beret. For political parties forming up, EFF is more ambitious, people I meet talk supportive for them. Scheepers is a fine brother at UWC HIM Society. He is involved and respected at UWC. Economic engagement need to always be given a chance and all people must contribute.

Thinking also like how I think Mrs Thandi Maqubela deserves a second chance from the murder case of her husband. Like as a way of believing on the quality of people with all that woman go through, may the judge give her a minimal sentence, we need her.

SA with its court culture. With also people like Oscar Pistorius the blade runner, our pride that is facing murder case for his shot dead girlfriend, got me thinking of what freedom in our 20 years of democracy may mean to us. In this country's sport struggle he lifted us I must say. So young all these people with (legal) faults, I believe in them, that they can still be helpful than anything. Justice must build us than destroy. May the Magistrates in their judgment in great effort try to get that right.

May the beloved Julius Malema get over his legal problems and return the support people give him and be of use.

As the nation we want to see more people rise above the problems they faced with. In our pursuit for economic empowerment, it must help us lead better lives, with our women and children respected. We all aspire to live better lives. We must tell beautiful stories.
