Letter to President J Zuma

27 September 2012, 10:19

Honourable President, if there is a vestige of love for your country, love for humanity, love for justice based on equality of all human races, listen to your citizens. I have so much endured the pain of reading about the articles which belittle you as the head of the state, and you have not condemned those who mock you in the strongest terms I would expect of a leader of this great nation. This make me ask myself one simple question. Are you at the helm of presidency for other reasons than to lead the nation into prosperity or other reasons unbeknown to me?

I think we have gone through a period of self serving and it is now time for you to show us where you intend to take this nation.

Those who have enjoyed the previlages bestowed upon them by the system of apartheid have showed you that they are not prepared to share their cake with the majority of this country unless you show proper leadership skills which go with the position you are occupying. To a certain extent their fears are understanble.What is your vision Mr. President?

Procastination and delay in transforming the economy of this country strike at and very life of the nation you are tasked to lead.When you took the oath in office you promised us that South Africa will change. Is it for the worse or bad. When will the violent industrial actions end? Is this the manifestations of poverty and inequality that our people continue to endure even after standing on those long queues to vote for your party. Our condemned to live as second class citizens forever in our country? Our born to provide labour to the insdustrialized world and live in a violent society in which the police do not heistate to kill the people they are supposed to protect. There has been enough blood shed in our soil and yet you intend to spend R 74 million to investigate the obvious cause of the death of those who have never enjoyed the so called freedom in their own country.

Mr. President when will the government stop considering the lives of the majority as cheap. Your inaction demonstrate the manner in which we are sub human in this country even before the dawn of democracy. Had you acted promptly I would think that you are concerned about the situation such as what occurred in Marikane.

Can you live to the pledge you took Mr. President.I am certain that if you take bold action to transform this country in all sectors of economy the lives of those who voted for you will improve.

Should you fail in living to your pledge when you took office, the people will loose faith in the current political order and will deliver themselves from the bondage of the legacy of Apartheid. When that time comes it will be like unstopable train and there would be casualities. The labourers have taken to the streets as they have lost faith in the leadership of their unions. Thsi driving force will, no doubt escalate to other sectors of the society.

Today we are a country awaked to danger of the mining revolution which will spread across the country like veld fire.The enemies of our freedom have committed an act of war against the peace loving majority. It is time for you to stop appeasing those who are enjoying the wealth of this country. those who do not know how it is to stay in the shack and go to bed without food. There are enough signs to show you that the country is facing an emminent danger, in which they would no longer listen to your govermnet.The opposing party is hoping to get more votes out of the situation, but fails to provide realist answers to hard life that people face daily. It will be taken by a suprize of attacks behind the high walls instead.

The demand of a complete freedom is on the wall and is not open to negotiation or discussion.

I ask you to rise up and take the responsibility for the sake of this great nation. Uphold the real values of a free society and heal the wounds of those who have been wounded.South Africa today finds itself in the fortunate situation as the masses are prepared to forgive those who have inflicted those wounds upon them, but they would not be so naive to relent in their fight for justice and freedom.

May god open your eyes and grant wisdom to take decisive action to deliver freedom in a practical way.
