The fall of our leaders

08 March 2014, 10:57

Our leadership is falling apart; circumstances have proven that wherever the president of South Africa goes there are negative remarks that accompany him, some booing from an adamant opposition partisan or anti-unity individual/s.

It is becoming a trend that certain individual/s or parties use pathetic strategies to voice-out their political mandates where it is not necessary, even during times of National Unity and Pride, whilst the whole world is watching football.

It is quite true when it said “do unto others as you would like to be done unto you”. It was a shameful scene after such a magnificent game of soccer between the awesome Brazilian team and Bafana Bafana, when Mr. Jacob Zuma was booed by spectators, whilst he was trying to sympathies with the Nation (iSizwe) desperate for change in our soccer team.

It seems that our country is inundated with cries from the populace for change, in Sport, Politics and our Economy.

With so much that needs to be undertaken to make the lives of the people of South Africa more bearable, is there one Organization or Party that could stand alone and promise its electorate to bring change without the collaboration of other interested parties or even individual/s who are aspirant to make life better for all in this country.

Mr. Mbeki was disgraced by his comrades he sat with in the same table, at the Polokwane Conference and during the years of struggle, he was ousted without sympathy. It seems now the tables have been turned around, our President is going to walk out of his decade of presidency with his tail between the legs after the elections.

A lot of other leaders have suffered the same fate as Mr. Mbeki, who had a lot of influence in the political arena only to be deceived by the same compatriots who chanted the same slogans of anti-Capitalism.

Our country has a lot of talent and young minds who through collaborative methods can make a difference in the Socio-Economic state of our country irrespective of political affiliation.

We don’t want to see a trend of Political leaders being booed out, whilst we can embrace collective methods to get our country out of cumulative state of failure, we have experienced in the last 20 years of “our democracy”. We need aggressive methods to curb the plight of suffering citizens, irrespective of “political association” and be eager to fight for the balance and upliftment of all the Rainbow people.

A stranger once saw a person in great difficulty, he lend a hand to save him from his plight that is a kind of attitude we need in this country irrespective of Race; Colour; Creed; and Religion, that we shall ALL transcend the boundaries of inequality and lack of respect for Human Rights.

Although appearing to embrace conservatism, today’s Russia seems to be a mass of contradictions especially with the emergence of a so-called Bolshevik party and its admiration of both Stalin and Tsarist Russia. Read more...
