Our dying Democracy is it a "prerogative or...

28 March 2012, 07:11

Our dying “democracy” is it a “prerogative or a necessity” to constantly be harassed and continue to experience the struggles between political parties. The problem with our democracy is the need to transform and realise that the world is continuously revolving and we cannot escape the hands of evolution. Hence therefore, the “New Order” has to come and replace the old regimes, and the past historical era has to let go and give-in to the younger aspirant generation. It is the reason that our Learning Institutions have to be equipped with the educational infrastructure for the purpose of achieving such goals, so that our future leaders have all the capacity to take the country and prepare for future prospects. The prosperity of an individual or a country is reflected upon its relics, a lineage of impeccable characteristics just like our previous president, Nelson Mandela; Rev Desmond Tutu; Mr. F.W de Klerk who have managed to lead and set the country on solid grounds.

It is the young generation now that has the obligation to take this prospective land of ours to the next level, Unification of African People. This is land which has diverse cultures should strive for the unification of the African continent, and continue to move in the direction of building a solid and stable continent Socially; Economically; and curb the Racial indifference which affects the civil society. The time has come now that the people of this “democratic country” should in their lives reflect change and adapt to the New Order. The most fundamental resource to change is to let go of the past and adapt to new philosophy. We as Black Africans we have an experience of such a change, when the Colonialists arrived and disputed the land of our Ancestors. The issue now is not about Racial indifference, but the conceptualisation of a New Africa, based on young ideologies. Most of the chaos and upheavals around in and around our continent is the result of persistence righteousness will to power, hence our newly found democracy is taking so long to penetrate through the fibres of our society and initiate change that is evidently the result of generation interchange where “Power” is deemed as absolute solution. The battle between the stables of Malema siding with Mbalula in campaigning for the removal of the current presidency and re-elect Montlanthe as the new president is such a phenomenon. These kind of animosity between the young and the old generation will continue, unless we let go of the past and realise that power sharing is crucial for any democracy to be a success, hence therefore we are embarked by a state of unproductive waste of time and useful resources, that can be beneficial for the betterment and upliftment of our society.

It seems we are in staged where we need to live in constant fear from one anxiety to another, from political instability; weather and environmental changes; or a nuclear and biological war, I think we have acquired some new phobias with some new names.
