Mangaung's agenda should prioritize on the people...

21 November 2012, 15:14

The ANC Leadership is gearing up for the elective conference in Mangaung next month. There are two camps; one for Montlathe and the other still prefers Zuma’s presidency. The elect should remember that they owe great responsibility to their constituency, not the other way round. What is important in the political arena is its constituency, and to deliver upon such promises, the country is not interested on internal affairs, that are intent on disrupting service delivery to the people.

The nation needs a candidate that is obliged by its mandate to adhere on its manifesto, rather than self-serving egoistic attitudes that we seem to be accustomed too, these days. This country does not need people who want to build castles for themselves and those loyal friends, that seem to have forgotten the poor and the destitute. This country is inundated by cries of help, our people are starving and need houses, but for the past two decades no drastic change has taken effect, only empty promises. The Eastern Cape Province is one of the poorest provinces, whilst it has so many resources(natural and historical) that could be explored for the benefit of our people.

The Makana Municipality (Grahamstown) is one of the towns in the Eastern Cape that has seen little progress, since the advent of our democracy. There is a clear dividing line between the town (CBD) and the township, nothing much has been done to improve the quality of black communities. All the projects that have been undertaken in the Black townships have poor rate of success. There is no proper infrastructure, and the ANC led government has done little to Uplift the standard of the poor people. All Development projects undertaken have failed to materialize. Those community and business leaders who have good intention to work with the Makana Municipality have been constantly pushed aside, hence there is lack of proper development strategies.

The King Lobengula Foundation has proposed a Community Development Strategy for the Fingo village, Kwa-Ndancama, a historical site that can be explored and developed to bring much needed infrastructure in the community, and it has received no obligation from Mr. Myalato, Director of Technical and Infrastructure Services, who is constantly unavailable.

The ANC led government should priorities on serving the needs of the people who put them in power or this country will soon be in a state of anarchy, the people have waited so long, empty promises are “outdated”.

Xenophobia, or racism?

Xenophobia is described as ‘a fear, dislike, or prejudice against people from other countries.’ If you substitute ‘countries’ with ‘race’ then you have the description of racism. In my view the two are simply the same thing. Read more...
