Work together to help SA thrive

2016-07-20 06:00

PROPAGANDA echoes endlessly as we are about to go to the elections, a serious­ crime to the dignity of poor people.

Political parties are squabbling with each other instead of working together to help our country thrive.

Instead of seeing ourselves as South Africans, we still categorise each other as blacks and whites.

Mandela said he fought against white domination and against black domination, but that vision is misplaced.

Court debacles of parties perpetuate hostility and hate among people who are brainwashed.

The blame game is a hinderance to prosperity and continuity.

Mandela did not point fingers at anyone after 27 years of imprisonment and with that his actions gave him a foot in the door to democracy.

The powers gained after the elections should reflect “Ubuntu” to everyone. With great power comes profound responsibility that is sincere and does not flout it on agenda and service­ delivery.
