When you have made corruption and cronyism the norm, do not expect citizens to remain good. Do not expect them to remain moral and law abiding to augment your iniquitous schemes to enrich your chosen elite.
Do not expect men to work and live with integrity and honesty, when you reward corruption and ridicule decency.
When you spend millions on YOUR security and throw open the gates of our country for a party of foreigners, do not expect us to believe that we are respected and that OUR security matters.
When you encourage disorder and riotousness to further your ambitions, do not ask why others do the same to realize their hopes.
And don’t ask who is responsible for the jeering at Madiba’s memorial service, Mr President.
