The South African Black society is still trapped under the “system”
of confusion since the advent of free election, in 1994. The constant
“confusion” that exists within Parties is a reminder of the past
Apartheid regime propaganda that is embedded in the minds of our Leaders
and the entrusted Official/s in the Government Departments who are
intent on corruption and unscrupulous acts to self enrichment and
prestige. It’s a phenomenon similar to chaining an ass to a pole and
when it’s free it still remains chained, the effect of freedom is
enclosed by years of slavery. It is also the reason that we find so much
dissension and discord in our political arena prior to the 7th of May elections.
The minority of dissenters have quickly forgotten the torturous years
under the Tripartite Alliance that saw the magirnalisation of the
majority of people, living them with less than nothing of dignity and
deprived of all Human Rights.
The disgruntled citizens who have crossed to the other side and opted
to join the Opposition Parties, have never experienced true liberty,
hence they perceive Freedom as being incessantly tied to the pole. The
choice to choose not to vote or to canvass for the Party that is imbued
in self gratification and misrepresentation of the misguided populace is
not a choice but a mind in captivity.
It is that time we should reconsider our true identity as the African
Nation (iSizwe sethu) that is characterized by its unique culture of
Ubuntu, hence we should carefully cast our most decisive votes in 20yrs
of our Democratic Constitution of South Africa, and stand united for the
respect of all our Liberation Struggle Comrades.
It is the duty of the elected Party to adhere to their Mandates, with
a set of discreet principles that guide the implementation of
objectives, and with a policy of checks and balances and accountability
procedures in place.
The African People have been united in the fight against
Colonialism’s aftermath of Capitalism, that resulted to socio-economic
segregation of races and where ultimately subdued due to the rule of
divide and rule, it is the reason that now at this point in time we
should strategies and remember the heroes and heroines who stood their
ground against all opposing forces for the liberation of our people,
Tata Nelson Mandela; Raymond Mhlaba; Oliver Tambo; Govern Mbeki; Steve
Biko; and Walter Sisulu with others who diligently sacrificed their
lives. A moral code of conduct that governs the state of affairs should
be the standard that is set to measure the NDP Implementation Policies
meant to address Service Delivery and subsequently create Job
Opportunities and the Entrepreneurship spirit in our Young generation.
