'What will happen to our country when X dies?'

26 July 2013, 14:10
Africa, please don't ask "What will happen to our country when X dies?" Tell us what your plan is to ensure peace and stability in your country and your continent. The future and prospects of an entire nation, people, continent cannot vest or lie in one person, one woman, one man. No one should ever have to carry such a burden. No one can manage such a burden.

One man or woman no matter how great does not make a country or continent. It is everyone pulling together, our leaders and the people they are leading, our heroes that make a great country and continent. Nobody is bigger than a country but every person can play a part in nation building.

The burden of peace and stability on the continent is to be carried by every daughter and son of Africa. That burden lies with us. We are responsible for a peaceful and prosperous Africa. This is our dream and it is up to us to make it a reality. This is your opportunity to play your unique part in nation and continent building. This is a responsibility that cannot be delegated. Join in the labour of love for Africa. 

The peace and stability that we are looking for in our countries depends on us. It starts with our thoughts, our words, our actions. How are we treating each other? Can we find peace and stability in the world outside when we are in continual turmoil and instability within? Find the peace and love within and it will be so much easier to live it in our lives. 

The time is coming and the time has come when Africa must stop coming up with excuses for lack of stability. Why are we fighting like this? People of different political parties, different beliefs, different orientations? Why are hating? Why do we insult like this?

Perhaps all these things have happened that we might learn from them and rise to be the Africa that we all long to see. We will do better. We will overcome. We will be victorious. Africa, it's time!

That sounds like a really wonderful idea. Even though the Xhosas were never traditionally in the Western Cape, the reality is that many of them are now and will forever be an integral part of it. Read more...
