Lying in state

10 January 2014, 07:59
It is so unfortunate that the RSA I live in of late has become greedy. Pssss...I am talking about the very leadership that is telling people to hustle for a better life. I am just paraphrasing, bear with me, I am probably inundated by the slang usage of the word 'hustle'. The hip hop circles (RSA excluded) had used to word to express overcoming one's current state (in most instances financial position) against all odds (murder, drug trade et al).
I am not sure why my grands' beloved ruling party has decided to turn a blind eye on its mandate. In simpler terms, I used to believe that the mandate was to deliver a better life for all, but it looks that the coin has flipped a bit. I may not be against the idea of 'thanking' oneself but embezzling or looting is just another thing. I have to think that the ruling party (No.1 faction) lost the plot by turning their victory against Mandela's successor into a 'gravy' train.
The party is asking for our votes and telling us to hustle for everything our land is offering for instance. Supposing we were to hustle or fend for ourselves, what guarantees are they offering us that they won't use 'concomitant' force against us? The very tactics used by the ruling party to play mind games are only applicable to blacks. We are given plates of food, or streetwise2 and promised that should they win, cattle will be slaughtered for us. The only question I guess about being 'darkie' is that we never anticipate the future. This is often seen during festive season. 
I sometimes wonder and ask myself lots of questions, especially about the current events in my noble Mpumalanga. The people are jovial about the presence of the 'top six' and forgot about their pleas for jobs. The noble people whom by interpolation are nothing on the eyes of NEC member Mokonyane and No.1 himself just humble themselves and hope for a miracle. I could coat(sic) Slikour's song title and impose it on my people but I'd rather take a pill and 'lie' in state.
