March to cover the balls

31 May 2012, 07:20
Liberation movements in our country have a proud dignified history of countless courageous marches over the years against the injustice and the tyranny of apartheid oppression.

The basic demand of these marches were that South Africa be transformed into a constitutional democracy that guarantees the basic freedoms, like freedom of speech and freedom of expression. The marches and other means of struggle managed to bring about the changes that promised to transform our country.

Today the ANC marched against the display of the Spear painting of Brett Murray in the Goodman Gallery, demanding that the painting be removed, because it is an insult to "all ANC members".

According to reports the Goodman Gallery has agreed to remove the painting from its walls. City Press has also agreed to remove the painting from its website.Maybe the ANC also plans to march to the offices of Facebook, Wikipedia and Twitter to demand that they remove the Spear Painting.

I hope future generations will try to make sense that the ANC marched to have a painting removed from a gallery wall, while serious issues of fraud and corruption, lack of service delivery, etc. were allowed to continue almost unabated, and with impunity, while the ANC is in government.

I think future generations will agree that under their rule the ANC definitely took their eyes off the ball to cover other balls.

This is laughable as on many occasions Zuma made a clear statement that is does not owe any money. Is this another matter that this government is sweeping under the carpet. Read more...

Into the Fire

The problem is that Zumas' stench of corruption has tainted all those who surround him. Their consistent support of him through scandal after scandal has cast them (and ultimately the ANC) in the same light. Read more...
