Young people showing ambition?

30 May 2014, 15:24
By: Sivuyile S. Sesi- (t) @756Writing

Young ambition between the pro Lindiwe Mazibuko with the Democratic Alliance (DA) and "the son of the people", Julius Malema from the African National Congress (ANC) to the Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF). Do you learn from the party on serving the people on a professional, high demanding, people involved political position? Do you understand the logistics of people and systems relation to ensure quality service delivery? Holding a position with high accuracy and no corruption in your work, which one prepares you better?

Mazibuko quited a position as DA parliamentary leader, that she held so well to study Masters degree in Public Administration at Harvard University. Now the position has been just taken by another young person, Mmusi Maimane unopposed in DA. During 2014 elections Maimane was DA candidate for Gauteng premier.

Young Malema with different ambitions, as young as he is, leading EFF for president and taking just over a million support of votes in the recent elections. Now representing his party in parliament. What can we expect from these young leaders, especially between Mazibuko and Malema? Is it right to depend on a political position that is determined by the people than securing education to refine your skill? People seem to be losing confidence on what you can achieve with education compared to uneducated person. But education can ensure a better success for your future, along that helping others especially government.

Malema when he got expelled from the ANC, with his supporters from the ANC he started a new party. Where can we expect to get better from the approach of these two leaders? In SA from what our leaders can offer people seem to support leaders like Malema and Jacob Zuma more which are less educated. These leaders attracted more support for their parties than compared to Mazibuko and DA that prides for proven and awarded over other provinces for best service delivery. ANC chosen the uneducated leader like Zuma over quality results proven leader like Thabo Mbeki in Polokwane and Zuma became state president. As a results under Zuma's leadership our economy is sluggish. And while he is not being effective he is getting his full salary and benefits. Zuma built an expensive house in Nkandla on tax payers money. A public office has become more beneficial to the person holding the position than the public it suppose to benefit. It seems like looting while they can than helping people who are in need while they can.

From the approach of these two young leaders Mazibuko and Malema which one that will lead this country to prosperity? Comparing the educated from the uneducated, the lives of the educated improves greatly.

Africa is poor because there are less educated people.
