The big non event - Mangaung

19 December 2012, 08:44
Mangaung, the hot topic of the moment, but is this as big an event as everyone is led to believe it is? The events of Polokwane can never be repeated in our life time. That was the single worst moment of the ANC since the dawn of democracy so here is what I think.  

So everyone in the ANC knows Zuma has failed dismally as president and he does not deserve a second term.

But for the ANC to not put Zuma back in power would be admitting that they made a huge mistake by recalling Mbeki. So the ANC top brass needs to make a change with as little disruption as possible.

So a compromise is needed. Kgalema becomes the casualty making way for a candidate that represents the Zuma opposition. This is Cyril Ramaphosa. 

So like polokwane the outcome of mangaung is premeditated. Zuma for president and Cyril as deputy. This will pave the way for a new generation of leaders post 2014 thus changing the political spectrum. Cyril will position himself for the highest office in the country following Zuma's departure from office post his next term.

The next 10 years will represent a significant shift in the politics of the country. It is time for our middle class to reposition themselves and to cease being spectators shouting from the sanctity of their balconies and to either join the ANC or an opposition party. What is clear is that the young people of this country need to cease playing politics in bars and shisanyama hang out joints and actively play a part in shaping the future of generations to come.

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
