US must empower people of SA

02 July 2013, 14:23
By: Sivuyile S. Sesi

United States President Barack Obama said he "wants young Africans to rise to the challenge of shoring up progress on the continent, summoning them to fulfill Nelson Mandela's legacy."

Obama has risen to the occasion in his second term in time of the confederations cup weekend for the world, and visited the country that Nelson Mandela led to the birth of democracy. The results of that in 2010 we also held soccer world cup, our rugby team has held and won world cups, and also cricket. Politics, sports, film, science, etc has done us proud and put South Africa (SA) on the map.

The US invested greatly in SA than when compared with other African countries. Its investment ranges specifically in security, business, education, development and infrastructure.

Now that everything most stand in our economy some people are ungrateful to such an extent that there are people who find it not fitting with who they are. That the environment created by investment is foreign to them so that to show that they place incompetent, corrupt, bad leadership style, always crime associated, careless of country image, very poor services delivery government.

An example is Kenya which Obama avoided because the their President Uhuru Kenyatta is being prosecuted for crimes against humanity, including murder, deportation, rape, persecution and inhumane acts allegedly committed by his supporters in the violent consequence of Kenya's 2007 elections.

Obama stated that it was not the right time for him as the president of the US to be visiting Kenya when those matters are still being worked on, and he hopes that at some point they will be resolved.

In SA we have government officials who associate with people like the Guptas who are involve in a scandal that compromised the security of our country. Which the opposition parties like the Democratic Alliance are doing a very good job in keeping them accountable so that such problems are controllable and not worsening as in Kenya.

Zuma is the reason for undue influence in government as a results resources are being wasted economy is not growing. One of the ways of solving such problems is that the US must focus on business and direct investment. With good monitoring people will become drivers in improving their own lives.

We have international players like Bennie McCarthy who announced while in Europe that he retires from professional football, and others young and old in different spheres like education, business, science, military, religion, entertainment, environment, etc, who excelled on those spheres.  Since previous investments  in our country they have been of great quality, showing the world what our democracy in capable of ,  to such an extent we create even more interest to the world we might as well take advantage of our achievement. Direct investment will ensure that our economy improve even more at the hands of the people than being wasted among elites.

We must not allow discouragement filtered ANC to make us lose control. Its been about 20 years in democracy people must take charge.
