SA Government leadership and racism

14 April 2014, 18:44

One would expect that the government as custodians of the Constitution to act accordingly to that which they should protect.

True transformative and visionary leadership, albeit an individual or an entity, should be intent on ensuring that the there is a sense of synergy within the environment. A synergy in support of working together to achieve the best for the country (as is the case normally associated with governments) and using diversity to the benefit of all.

Considering the various statements made by the ANC, SACP and EFF ‘leaders’ over the past couple of months, and especially the last couple of days, it is noticeable that the use of rhetoric to ensure that the ‘white-black’ divide is broadened, has escalated. Race is used as a means to win/keep votes! What does this say about both the individual employing this technique, as well as those parties they represent? In reality one can conclude the following:

1)    *  The ANC, SACP, EFF and similar organisations are NOT  interested building a nation that is inclusive of all races and ethnic groups, and therefore the Constitution is not worth being used as toilet paper;

2)    *  The opposing parties’ policies are irrelevant and should not (or cannot ) be debated – a stance common for individuals that are egotistical, arrogant or scared of losing power, thereby acting completely undemocratic;

3)   *   ANC, SACP and EFF (amongst others) politicians prefer to incite emotions and forget about using intellect - a believe that arguments based on race fueled by a terrible history will keep a very large portion of the nation sufficiently angry and therefore blind to the truth of what is really happening in government including that attention should be diverted from their own failures;

4)   *   That the leadership do not respect the general person on the street as they are used as meal-tickets and considered too stupid to know better…

These traits are normally associated with those ‘leaders’ that are known to have committed extreme atrocities. These are not the traits of true leaders, leaders able to ensure economic and social stability and growth.

South Africa cannot afford that its current leadership use baseless rhetoric to fuel anger amidst high-levels of crime and unemployment. I can therefore only conclude that the ANC, SACP, EFF and alliance partners are NOT interested in building a better South Africa, but only in ensuring that they can manipulate voters into feeding their own greed.

One should expect that those guilty be removed from their respective offices as they are not worthy of leading anyone!
