Not yet UHURU

22 May 2014, 21:00

People have been complaining or had negative things to say about the movement of the people wearing RED in parliament.. Actually, they have been complaining since the establishment of the EFF. I don’t understand why people complains about the EFF chosen dress code for the day. What’s the use having people wearing expensive suits in parliament and end up sleeping the whole day there? There is nothing wrong for buying a big, house and flashy car but as EFF we say do it using your own money not tax payers money.,,,,, When Juju wears expensive suits, people complain, when he wears overall, people still complain...Hai suka.. Make up your minds

People are afraid to stand up for something, and rather chose to follow the masses. Sheep mentality, let the blind follow the blind. Needless to say. South Africa still vote according to colour lines. Most (Please note I say most, and not all) whites/Colourds and Indian people support and have voted DA, Most black people have voted ANC.  We don’t judge anyone who voted for their respective parties. But as one of the million or so people who voted EFF, I have had the pleasure of being labeled stupid, dumb, and backwards by all and sundry.

My mother, a domestic worker, believe and voted for the EFF, She is finally proud to see herself represented in Parliament by people who takes her pain and suffering serious. Who am I to question her pain, suffering and judgment. EFF is the home of the down trotted, and it’s an organization very close to my heart.

Black people (And all others who are lucid in their thinking and see the injustice suffered by the majority in the land of their ancestors) needs to realize that it’s not yet uhuru, and wake up from their slumber, and support the progressive movement. Let those who are willing to die for the struggle of the Emancipation of the black laborers do their work. They don’t need your house negro mentality or interference and judgment

You can continue living your life of ass kissing to the capitalist world till you die, and let your kids and grandkids suffer the same lot. For heaven sakes, you can’t even afford to take your kids to a decent schools, in order to break this vicious cycle of poverty, and you believe we living in a democracy. What future does your kids have with the degraded education system they are exposed too? Let those with some backbone fight for their kids futures. You claim to be for change, but what change will you achieve by keep doing the same thing over and over again. The ANC has been in power for 20 years, and people are still slaves. There is huge pay disparities, and there is no rainbow nation. That was, and it will always remain an illusion until you decide to do something about it. Stand your grounds, and say to change. Only when we all go to the same school, have the same opportunities, and have equal chances can there be a rainbow nation.

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
