Real vision of South Africa

10 April 2014, 13:01

REAL VISION OF SOUTH AFRICA

Allow me to share my thoughts on  Cyril Ramaphosa & Kgalema Monthlante Statements ‘Mediocre ZANC politics’ of April 07 & 08  that portrays a state of confusion and lack of genuine leadership among South Africa’s ruling political party seen with their “blind” and unsolicited endorsement of a ANC presidential candidate, above others.
Call this the political gimmicks of our times or South African democracy at its worse, or are the ZANC ,ZANCYL and ZANCWL leaders trying to position themselves better?
May they want to share a piece of the pie, should ZANC win the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections?
The move by South Africa’s ruling party presidential hopefuls that have thrown their towels in the ring before the upcoming elections is a trend that undermines the very democratic principles our State should be enjoying.
Should all political parties follow EFF (ECONOMIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS), South Africa will very soon be a one-party State that will be shunned in many parts of the world.
Wholeheartedly, political parties must be free to decide on what they want to do for the country and how they perceive their role in cementing the very democratic structure that South Africa is privileged to have, but they should not exercise this not chickening-out strategy when faced with a political giant. It is David and Goliath syndrome.
The Economic Freedom Fighters(EFF) and Zuma Affilliates of  National Criminals’ (ZANC) stance in shelving their presidential ambitions to run the country is worrisome, especially when people don’t understand the rationale behind such decisions.
In fact, by trying to anoint Shower Man Jacob Rapist Zuma as the most likely presidential candidate suitable to run South Africa, without have had his positions cleared on a number of issues, is being irresponsible and naive.
Does it mean that the former ANC has no presidential material that can run for Namibia’s highest office and confidently challenge other presidential hopefuls by outlining their political vision for the country?
If Rhino or Montlhante cannot face Rapist for the presidential contest, why not find one amongst their pack to do so?
Indeed, if ZANCYL & ZANCWL are serious in backing the ZANC presidential candidate, why not foster some working alliance amongst the political parties – demonstrated by signed agreements, rather than the wolfing statements that are one-sided and not fully supported by the ZANC leadership?
As for EFF Manifesto  alluded about economy, is that really different from the corrupt and self-serving deals that have enriched ZANC’s most powerful politicians?
The ZANC-led government that has been eroded with acts of cronyism, corruption, embezzlement of public funds and misplaced priorities meant to benefit the rich, so there has been a widening of the gap between the have and have-nots.
This has culminated in the high unemployment rate, poverty, and poor service delivery to the masses.
ZANC’s presidential hopeful has being part of this government from day one after the undemocratic elections of 1994, initially as NEC member of the Mandela Affiliates of the National Criminals, responsible for running different sectors of the South African government that has not yielded much results, as seen with all the social ills that have infested the country.
Or did Rapist say or do something new that South Africans are not aware off?
In order to save face, the ZANC must dissolve, as they have become irrelevant to South Africa’s democratic process, with nothing to offer, let alone (ZUMA) one person out of their membership to be man enough to contest the presidency not by using the Image of Mandela to cheat to the masses.
If the ZANC cannot beat EFF, then they must join them! Mediocre political leaders are a distraction in any democratic State.
The blind endorsements from the ZANC and the ZDA does not do EFF any good, as people will be asking for the merits of such decisions, which can unfortunately be pinned down to the non- sentiment that has been floating around the country.
In conclusion, South Africans must endorses CIC Julius Malema, give him space to outline his personal vision for South Africa, because the current ZANC one has failed - resulting in many eating from dumpsites and having nowhere to sleep.
