Second Term Sholozi

19 December 2012, 08:44

Let’s face, the odds are stacked against Mothlante unseating The People’s song bird, and master dancer. Those that dislike Msholozi have to brace themselves for another seven years with him at the helm. God only knows what other scandals, and revelation will be revealed in the coming years.

It has been said before, you get the leaders you chose, and this is a classic case or example of that being true. Zuma alone cannot vote himself in power; other people will do so on his behalf.. Those people see the leadership in Mr. Zuma where others fail to do so, Other people will claim these people vote Zuma just for patronage.

They say he represent an investment vehicle to riches for those on his side. Be it through getting preferential treatments when it comes to the rewarding of tenders, or getting those plush positions in parastatals, or in government. Their spoils of war are guaranteed, by hook or crook.One does not need to be a rocket scientist to get the mood of the normal man on the ground that he has been disillusioned by the ruling party, and its leadership.The man on the ground knows that he better fends for himself, as the government officials are too busy focusing on self enrichment to care about their plightI think one can draw parallels between our current system, and the old apartheid system.We have people going to Mangaung to vote people in power.

These people don’t necessarily represent the will of the greater SA population. These people are mostly going there to represent themselves, and don’t take a second to think of the greater good for SA.What SA truly needs is decisive, brave, bold, and frank leadership. The trend seems to be we chose the leader that will enable us to sleep on the job without consequences, as in the case of Angie Motshekga Or let Nati Mtetwa set the police on the Miners when they strike for a living wage, Who cares, let the miners eat cake if they don’t have bread, that seems to be the thinking of the leadership. Some white people didn’t vote for the National Party, and detested everything it stood for, but today it’s hard to differentiate between who supported the NATS, and who didn’t.

The bottom line is, the system was in the hands of the whites. Most black people can be forgiven for mistaking all whites as guilty of all the atrocities committed against the blacks based on who was in power.The same judgment will befall all black people if the Rainbow Nation project fails. All blacks will be held accountable for this failure because people will say the government of the day happened to be in the hands of the blacks, even though there is plenty of evidence that shows that most black people have no say, or control towards the direction the country is taking.  We will be judged on sitting back while the country was rocked with one scandal, like the arms deal, to Nkandlagate.

They are stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea. They are fed up with the ANC, and they mistrust the DA. They can’t COPE, and the IFP is home only to certain kind of people. THE PAC seems to have faded with time, and UDM is not attractive as an alternative to these masses. It seems like South Africa didn’t learn much from the past. What’s one to do in all this madness? No one seems to be coming with a better alternative. I guess a man moet ne Zip, and still bly, less one be labeled counter revolutionary.

 Only time will tell where we going to end up as a country

The Greatest?

There are always debates about who the greatest batsman is, the greatest golfer, the greatest footballer and so on and I think, with one exception, that of Don Bradman, the jury will remain perpetually hung. Read more...

It seems that there are so many disgruntled members in the ANC, and some of them have resorted to negative stances, floor crossing and verbal insinuations are the order of the day.  Read more...
