When does wrong become right?

10 July 2013, 11:14

This recent spat between ZUMA and the AbaThembu King reminds me of the time in the medieval times when commoners needed permission from the King before they could take a bride for themselves. In order to ensure that community members did not go and marry outside the clan, and bring in foreign cultural practices into their native communities, Kings often passed a decree that ensured that  fornication could only happen under the consent of King, hence people only used the law’s acronym as time went along.     

The ANC (of Mandela) maintained a code of discipline which compelled leaders to abide by certain basic principles. These are principles of high morality, integrity and selfless service to society. This is the ANC that received massive support for their course, from grassroots through to international organizations. However the ANC (of Zuma) is now bringing in unfounded and foreign cultures into this once noble organization. We have seen the bar of morality dropped by its leader amongst others, who even proclaiming that “I should not be judged by the company of friends I keep, my private business is mine alone”. This goes against basic family values, where you and I are tirelessly trying to teach our children to guard against bad elements in their lives. Even the good book says “Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character” ( 1Cor.15:33). The truth is the ANC (of Zuma) has allowed too many such other unforgivable acts to corrupt and dissolve the good work the ANC (of Mandela) has worked so hard to build.

For these reasons, it comes as no surprise that even the likes of King Dalindyebo and Kenny Kunene have become experts in pointing fingers at the leader of the most powerful and once respected party in Africa. South African under the current ANC have been reduced to “a land of the one-eyed-men” were everyone with a scandal, a secret, is King. These foreign elements have tainted our society where everyone is using wrong people as role-models and exemplary for good living.

I think it is time that we as ordinary South African need to look towards our own ‘honorable’ community leaders starting with parents, teachers, preachers, nurses and some police officers as role models. I point these characters out deliberately because they are the ones who are set in the frontlines of interfacing with ordinary people. As for the rest they need to go Fornicate Under Consent of King before they bring in their foreign and unbecoming cultures into our society.  

After all WHEN DOES WRONG BECOME RIGHT? ... WHEN THE WRONG SAYS IT’S RIGHT!
