Could the lack of governance in our country currently tip us over into a Civil War?
One would like to think not, however, unfortunately between reading comments from Citizens on various News websites, trolls excluded, it does seem that the hatred and bitterness is boiling up again. The blind belief in the ANC as the answer to all ills versus the very much still alive ‘Volkstad’ believers is enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Then there are the few of us who believe we should stand as one and put a stop to all this nonsense.
The fact that Malema and various ANC cohorts all have made some rather unveiled threats lately, and no efforts have been made by government to gag this ‘incitement to violence’ puts us all in a very precarious situation. Why any Leader should be allowed to shoot their mouths off without some repercussions, baffles me.
We currently sit with the ANC having no real opposition party, as let’s face it, the multitude of South Africa will never vote for the DA, as they seem too white and with that there will always be fears of our past Apartheid State. So what do we do?
We have cops acting as robbers and robbers acting as cops, reports of mismanagement of funds pouring out of the brickwork (government expenditure, tenders, Nkandla) in all sectors, Education in crisis (textbooks, condoms), Politically motivated murders/Faction fighting as well as the countries labour force striking causing South Africa to become a non attractive investment destination.
And what is our ruling party doing? Nothing.
It is time to throw their weight around and start the campaign for Mangaung, handing out a few T shirts in the belief that they are helping the masses.
There are us Optimists that believe that Zuma will finally be ousted and a Strong Leader (we do not need enigmatic) who actually understands Economics will replace him and start to run this country like a Business again, firing Maverick employees, ensuring funds actually reach their targets and cleaning up our International appeal to Foreign Investors – and not just the Chinese.
Who does that leave us with? Mothlante – surely not, Ramaphosa – all efforts are being made to smear him currently,Sexwale – another Tycoon? Our melting pot is becoming rather empty, all the while political unrest is stirring.
Where will it stop?
