The putrid of the Zuma presidency

19 March 2014, 15:21

How do we even begin to elaborate on the foul most putrid of leaders the new South Africa has ever had.  Granted he had big shoes to fill after having ousted Mbeki, yet nowhere has this so-called president even come close. His is a soul devoid on the most basic humanity to care for those in need. He has not only failed at being president, but he has also succeeded at making the poor realise just how insignificant their plight, hungry bodies and cold and sick children are to him.

Thulas Nxesi is as inexcusable as they come, how do we really try and explain away the criminality which has taken part in the building of one mans pompous compound at the expense of inner city youth and other social programs developed to assist those in need. Having decided I will never work for government I write as candid as I can: for Nathi Mthethwa to knowingly steal from the mouths of the poor to please his boss is no different than the apartheid government funding white schools better than they did black schools. Is this not the same thing, where we take from those in need and divert to who we feel and like a little better?

How has SA not stood up and marched as a nation to every publics works department, every government head office to demand the resignations of all those who made a very conscious decision to take from the poor and divert to themselves? How as a nation who supposedly cares for one another have we not gone insanely rioting to oust such blatant criminality? How on earth can any of his children offer him respect when they know just how much harm he has done to our country? I thought I’d be cheering at the PP findings, yet I find myself teary eyed as I fully understand just how far this government has moved from the once inspirational new South African era. It seems SA is at a crossroads now, with our options being to try vote out this master thief who has always begged for his day in court over numerous crimes but fights tooth and nail to ensure the spy tapes never come out.

How the hell did the ANC lose focus so badly, when did this one man, this imbecile from the middle of here and nowhere get to run the most powerful economy in Africa, when did our standards fall so low below par that we can actually accept that the ANC can still be some sort of honest. Without a doubt this fools actions shall reverberate for many a year to come across our nation as a mistake we never should have made. Those who defend zuma must know that their loyalty is utterly cruel, for they are condoning the hurting of our children for one mans mansion, they must know that by diverting from the Inner city programs they have left a mark on those children living in the streets that this SA is not for them, but rather an SA for one thief and his friends.

Our children deserve more, they deserve better... this is just cruel and despicable, I find the whole saga completely disgusting that one man could be so much more important than so many inner city youths living in the streets.

Strategic Disruption

There is, for some reason, an attraction to falling in line, following the rules, and playing this business game by the books. If you want to be an agent for change within the company, and let them know that you are not just a minion, be disruptive. Read more...

I have been hearing a lot about "Cognitive Dissonance" lately and I had experienced it talking to certain individuals within a certain party. I had to read more about it. I came across a quotation that says, "Any fool can despise what he cannot understand or comprehend." Read more...
