May you all be blessed

2015-12-16 06:00

AS the year 2015 fades into the past heralding in the new year, and we celebrate our success, it becomes necessary to also critically review our achievements and feats so that we constructively formulate resolutions for a brighter future.
Generally, significant events that impacted strongly on our lives determine the resolutions we make to face the challenges of the future with renewed vigor.
Our country has made considerable progress towards consolidating and implementing the principles enshrined in our constitution but I hope “corruption” fades away now.
Murders, rape, hijacking, with minority groups becoming soft targets for criminals, have persisted unabated, often at an untenable rate despite illustrious manifestos and promises made by politicians lobbying support from constituents.
We have noticed major changes in our education system to fast-track pupils from the disadvantaged sectors of our community and trust that all are afforded equal opportunities and resources to acquire education in a land that requires skills and human assets to positively transform the economy.
We look forward to positive change in the new year from all sectors and individuals that will add brilliance and luster to our rainbow nation in its commitment towards the promotion of goodwill, peaceful co-existence and economic prosperity.
We want to learn lessons from the past and to grow from the mistakes we have previously made. It is the dream of every citizen to feel a sense of belonging to a new democracy that is committed to bringing joy, peace and prosperity for all South Africans.
But crime is destroying the every core of human existence and needs urgent government intervention.
I believe, as a political and community activist, I will remain the eyes, ear and voice of the people.
I to echo positive vibes from all levels including those at grass-roots that reverberate the powerful message of being truly proud South Africans.
Our dreams and resolutions must be translated into positive outcomes and reality and “not illusions that fade with the winds of change”.
I wish you all a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. May all of you be blessed and your desires fulfilled.

“God Bless South Africa”
