Justice shouldn't have a colour

02 November 2012, 12:16

With so much focus, globally, on the US elections, and locally on our own possible point of no return or Rubicon, otherwise known as Mangaung, in December, it would appear that political point-scoring has become the way to go.

Given the negative publicity created, also globally, by the ongoing violence and unrest in the mining sector which has seen South Africa’s ratings take a huge dip across the world, it is incomprehensible why our great breeder, I’m sorry our great leader, should lead with his foot in his mouth yet again in defence of the Traditional Courts Bill.

He stated clearly, in defence of his own support, “Let us solve African problems the African way, not the white man's way”. I thought Nelson Mandela had urged and fought for a non-racial society – and for the President of the country to make such a clear distinction between races is yet another indication that, sadly, that legacy has been superseded by greed, expediency and the corruption mindset required to retain power.  My heart breaks for my country. Cry indeed the beloved country.
