Voting for the ANC, means that we suffer.

03 April 2014, 13:33
There is nothing new to what I am going to say.... but conscience demand that it must be said, written, read and heard!
ZUMA is a thief.
This must be said by all of us, to each other, and to the world. Loud and clear... again and again.
I firmly believe he is a thief for the simple reason that, as our PRESIDENT he is to be held responsible and accountable for the money spent to his benefit. This fundamental fact of politics, cannot be denied.

More than 250 million rands was unnecessarily spent on upgrading HIS homestead.
Not on healthcare for the sick and poor.
Not on houses for the homeless.
Not on protection for the cape flats.
Not on taking down the e-tolls.
Not on food relief for the hungry.
Not on the economy to promote growth.
No... He spent it on himself.
He says he didn't ask for it, but he doesn't give it back.
He says he didn't ask for it, but he doesn't tear it down.
He doesn't give apology, reimbursement, or repentance.

Mandela would have cried and turned his back in shame.
Not only turned on Zuma, but on the ANC for allowing it to happen. He would cry because they try to defend it and avoid blame, after the evidence has been laid bare.

I would assume Zuma wants to "get away with it" but I don't want him to. I could not stand for that.
I don't want him as my president because he stole from us.
I don't want him in government because he takes for himself, the money that I have given for those that are less fortunate than myself.
( For 2013 alone I had paid 66210.18 rands in taxes and will pay even more in the years to come, but whether that kindness would reach the intended I could not know. Not anymore. Not with Zuma.)

I want this country to be angry. I want all of you to be angry. I want you to realize how he has hurt you. I want all of us to open our eyes, and point at the man and scream "There! There is a bad man and he is sitting in power!"

Mandela's legacy is NOT the ANC. The ANC was merely a tool at the time, providing him the means to bring a new country to life.
Mandela's legacy is Democracy and it is Equal rights for all of man kind.
It is about JOY and PROSPERITY for everyone. The latter being where Zuma has deliberately failed.

If you want to build on that legacy, then do not let the corruption of the ANC continue. I beg of you. I beg all of you... I plead and pray and hope that you do not let it continue. Not for my sake... not even for your own, but for the sake of every hungry mouth; every homeless child; every beating heart that fears the evils of this world. It is for all of them that I dream, that corruption with the ANC be taken out of power.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
