Egypt should be taken back to democracy

08 July 2013, 15:20

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi

Over simplifying and intolerance of the democratic processes puzzled their inexperienced minds. Democracy is a way of choosing the decision-makers, but it does not replace the choice for taking a decision. For them they couldn't think matters through and be able to debate issues with intentions to nurture democracy. They got lost in thoughts leading to taking cut through, violating, peace disturbing
decisions.

Because of still unchanged attitudes, being unable to let go and adapt to suit for their new democracy situation, its making them the in system military rebels who overthrown the Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi.

They ignored their constitution and undermined African Union which is there to protect and support conducive decision making. They jepatised making Egypt another Syria and Central Africa Republic. The mix of religion in politics has made a lot of inconsideration in taking decisions. As a political democracy can give a sense that would sound to allow contradictions with the local values then in choice would need discarding what would be within the culture or religious context, that's how it would leave people feeling undermined. That is not the purpose of democracy. But open society for people to decide for themselves in decision making. In South Africa its good we have knowledgeable, effective opposition to ensure healthy democratic political system.

M&G states that South Africa was opposed to any kind of unconstitutional change of government, in line with the AU Constitutive Act.

Monyela said for South Africa "We strongly encourage all Egyptians to resolve the present crisis through inclusive dialogue without undermining the relevant national legal framework that seeks to consolidate the democratic achievements made by the Egyptian people in January 2011."

Our interests needs that people of Egypt are engaged. They must make decisions for the long term as short term there are no simple solutions. It should be someone's job to help sort it out before it gets out of hand further.

The Brotherhood has said it does not want to be involved with the military's plans for a new interim government." It believes Morsi should be reinstated, and has pledged to keep protesting until he is."

With all the crises that is still taking place in Egypt AU must implement the usual response to any breaking of constitutional rule by a member state.  In March, AU also suspended the Central African Republic after rebels overthrew the country’s government.

What is happening in Egypt will send a wrong message to Barrack Obama who just visited Africa recently for not just security but also investment and trade. If there are within system armed military that are formed to strengthen and protect constitution and democracy but instead are used to serve
interest of those who are dedicated in undermining and misunderstanding it then we should be concerned of the voices that need help and support. They can't be caught up in the frustrating consequences of unconstitutional decision making.

The hopes and dreams of African people for a better country and continent have been dashed down. For that our continent will keep depending on visits from leaders like George W. Bush, Barrack Obama and other western leaders because of being unable to take decisions that support democracy.

What we should focus on is the good news that there are millions of modern and open-minded people out there. They must know that South Africa and Africa will help them. We are on their side.
