The ANC is too comfortable

29 January 2013, 12:10
I do want you to think I am not grateful for the good the ANC has done, but a job well done cannot blind us from the callousness the ruling party has displayed & continues to display.

A recent display of how unopposed the African National Congress feel to be has to be the re-election of, who I view, as the worst Black President to ever fill the seat, Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma.

JZ is the least educated President to ever fill the Presidency in any African country in a long time, if not ever. Perhaps that is how he will guarantee the ANC victory in the 2014 elections, he appeals to the majority of our nation which is uneducated. This man who has been chosen to lead the ANC won by majority vote at Mangaung despite having charges against him & having the R206m Inkandla scandal over him. Surely I cannot be the only one who feels his majority win to be suspicious.

The election of Cyril Ramaphosa as. Vice-President of the ANC, a wealthy businessman who recently announced, Sowetan Live reports, will not be in contention for re-election as a non-executive director at Lonmin in an effort to clean his image for the upcoming elections.

The go-ahead with the e-tolling system that the people, which the government should serve, do not want. Their blatant disrespect of the freedom of speech by coercing FNB to apologise for an ad that expresses a shared opinion under the guise that it is treasonous to COMMENT on the current government.

The African National Congress feels itself to be too powerful to even remove corrupt officials, too powerful to be spoken of in a bad light & too powerful to listen to the people. In the words of the ANC "Vote for change this coming elections", I ask you to shake them this coming elections. Show the ANC that the people are still in power, not the party!

A government not afraid of its' people will never serve them well.
