State forfeits our trust and there is rage on the streets.

10 June 2014, 12:12


Trust is at the centre of almost everything that we do. We wake up every day trusting that we will return home safely. We trust that the government will not ensure our survival but will manage our affairs with integrity. We trust that we will be rewarded for our labour.

The young also trust, and hope that they will inherit a country that is viable, and that they too, will be able to make their mark.

When trust is lost we no longer have hope for tomorrow.

We begin to lose interest in the affairs of the state and stop participating on building a better tomorrow.

The toxic atmosphere circulating in our body politic, and the lack of trust in the state that seems to have gripped the nation, are a direct assault on our democracy.

President Jacob Zuma and the rest of the rest of the ANC leadership should always act in a way that foster trust in the governance of the country and its citizens.

As we prepare for elections in a few months, citizens will place their trust in political parties in the hope that they will govern the state affairs with integrity.

But when the word of senior government officials is so often doubted, and the state is seen to be incapable of rooting out corruption, trust is lost.

It is important that President Zuma and the cabinet ministers trust and hope in their management of the Republic.

The questions about the security upgrades at Zuma’s private residence in Nkandla should not be dismissed as merely the remtings of people who hate the president and the ANC!

It is the talk of trust in the state that is the main driver of the anger we see in the streets.

No government can rule effectively without the trust of the people.
