The nature of our political "leaders"

03 May 2013, 12:56
I thought I was going to leave this one pass me by, but the spirit of cognisance compels me to voice-out the corruption that is slowly eating-up through the fibers of the once powerful political party in this land, the ANC.

It seems that our promising political party is losing grips on its governance and this subsequently brings doubt to a lot of people, whether this is the party that should continue to lead the country.

The security of the country was compromised, due to financial and political cravings of certain individuals involved in the Guptas Saga. The Guptas saga deserves no less but the scrutiny of the people of this democratic constituency.

It has become a norm within the government from National to Local Departments when a case involving corruption it is always a game of cat and mouse, finger pointing attitude where the blame is always shifted from one person to the other never actually ever getting to the bottom of the truth.

You can rest assured that another Commission will be set up to investigate the true nature of events, that led the Gupta family having the utilise the government facilities as their playground. The problem is the taxpayer’s money that always has to fund these inquisitions. It is time that our government should place at its epicenter the mandate to rule and govern through accountability of its resources to ensure that checks and balances are adhered too.

The money that is lost through ignorant government departments by Officials who are intent to plunder the country resources, is a shame since the majority of the elect claim to be the custodians of this land and its people. The country they accentuates that they eagerly and earnestly fought for, to uproot the "will" of the past National government. South Africa is experiencing a new kind of political evasion not from the foreign colonialism but from within its borders.

A country that has trusted its hopes on the dreams of their forefathers, like Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe; John Langalibalele Dube; Steve Biko; Solomon Tshekisho Plaatje; Oliver Tambo; and Chris Hani, comrades who had bravely and diligently fought and wished for a "truly liberated" and democratic country for the people of South Africa (eMzantsi) only to be disappointed by their fellow patriots, who are egoistically ever opposing the rule of law and neglect the plight of the poor suffering citizens, in order to enrich themselves through unscrupulous acts, by sacrificing the security of the country.
