On Free State Government

21 May 2014, 15:49

I'm not inspired by Free State. Full of cult and demagogue leadership. Something needs change with what has been happening in this province. If not leadership. Then the way leadership leads.

I have a problem with free state people. They always elevate people to demigods. And it's not about those people but the dedication and works for the people. Those are the things that should speak for people than be about the people themselves. You'll hear people say... AAAAACCCCCCEEEEEE.... Like Ace is a province or free state government. When he only leads the province. This thing is a serious problem of this province and there are deep puppets that are driving this tendency like it pays them. This thing has to stop and it creates a problem for the leadership of this province. It's not about few people that says.. AAAACCCCEEEE.. IT'S ABOUT EVERY INDIVIDUAL IN THIS PROVINCE. JUS WE HAVE A LOT OF NAAIKOPPE THAT ARE WORKING FOR THEMSELVES THROUGH AAACCCEEE...

There is a tendency of leadership through connections, a clique and fear in this province that has rendered this province a stale province. You have to be known by someone connected to someone to be anything related with the government. Irrespective of talent. Then there are several people who will be hand picked to benefit from projects, special houses, jobs etc. This tendency is killing the province and creating a sour feelings towards the leadership. The government of the Free State has to benefit all the people of the Free State. One dont have to know Ace or someone that is connected to him to benefit from the opportunities in the province. And Ace dont have to even like you for that. Its not about him. We all pay tax and should benefit from the opportunities in our province. A premier and all his offices are sworn to serve all people in the province. Not just anc people or people they feel good about. This has been happening over a long time and people threatened with missing opportunities or victimized int loosing them if they have them if they dont fall into the expectations of leadership and anything that suits them. Free State needs to change the way it does things to progress. It will be a serious disappointment for Ace to lead two terms and show very little progress in the province, where only his connections have major progress in their individual lives and the province only to a certain degree and that certain degree spoke about loud forever.

 It can't be right that when a person gets an opportunity in his or her province, questions has to be answered, 'who is that?' "where does he come from", "do you know him "" why must he get that? "what did he do" and all such. Talent in this province will go stale and we'll only dream of progress. By virtue that a person leads a province doesn't translate they own it and everything must revolve around them. You are unknown to them. You don't exist. That is rubbish. It's not about them. Our being is not based on them knowing you or affirming you. With or without that. You are a citizen of this province and qualify to benefit from its opportunities. The whole purpose should be to use the people of this province forward the province. If our province should progress this. AAAACCCCEEEE cult must come to an end. We must have a leader not a controller. A person that is driven in making the best with what the province offers in human abilities and resources. Not in what they like and don't like. Such rubbish will take us nowhere. It will breed enemies and disgruntled members of the community and can't blame people if they hate him... Let's take the province forward... Not friends and connections. We have a bigger mission to accomplish than such a shallow myopic and stupid drive.

 Ace can come back many times, but if that doesn't translate to meaningful progress of this province, but to fulfill his personal agenda. That can only mean a curse to his legacy. Progress in this province doesn't mean a stadium in Parys. Some roads,fashionable rdps, taking few students oversea or buying them laptops( and calling the media as he does that) , buying some elderly grocery, and such. All that amounts to nothing if he will fail to touch the majority of the people of this province in such a way that when he's finished. Their lives are changed forever. In exploiting their talents, human resources, and empowerment. Free state is rich in people and resources and needs a leader who is smart to notice and use that to the maximum to benefit the people and the province itself.
