Our president's words

17 March 2014, 18:00


I woke up in the middle of the night to cheers, whistling and ululate and I peeped through the window and saw a big entourage behind a Presidential car with clear denotation; ‘Viva ANC, Viva’. I then later realised that in the same car, a limousine of about thirty metres long there were new ministers and like beauty contestants and queens, they had brand new written drapes hanging beautifully around their shoulders, (giving clarity who is who and for what, this and that).

It is good that our honourable President has decided on a new different type of a rule that will make him the greatest leader the whole Africa through, yes, he still has that chance, only if he realises it. A new government with a difference; a unique yet so important and that promises much opportunity and glory, with an aim to convert dreams of its people into reality and also promising relief to the suffering people, who in their totality emerged from an era full of hunger, poverty, hatred and unnecessary fights and now the strikes and protests .

This is what our President did for us:

1.       He decided that for heaven’s sake he wanted all the other parties to work together with him and he further explained that yes, all South Africans need one another more than fighting as squabbles between them guarantees the country nothing better, but only gives birth to more heaps of unwanted felony. If we as South Africans can tolerate living with our neighbours as we are doing right now, the Zims, Mozs , Malaws, Nigers and many more,  then what is it that can stop harmony between ourselves, nothing brothers and sisters, it is so simple. We really need a winning combination and is readily and abundantly available, it lies within our people of all colours completing a rainbow from different affiliations. You don’t have to be your brother’s enemy just because he chose a different political party, no.

2.       He said; “Even the manifestos of all the different parties have very little, smidgen difference, and basically, they all reflect on the same obvious needs of our people. Turning our eyes away from them will never make us a better people and deafening our ears deliberately to the resonant and raucous cries of our nation will not make us wiser either, as you know, a leader is like a parent we are supposed to be a buffer of unwanted pains to our people, not a cause of problems”. We have lost a lot of comrades in our war against Apartheid with their blood nourishing the tree of Freedom, so we cannot unnecessarily immolate our people further when they should be enjoying a hard earned, pyrrhic Freedom.

3.       He had decided that, cheatings of our own people in corruption and other evil acts, most of them we have not yet discovered and might not even hear of, must be replaced by something that will put back smiles on the faces of our beautiful people waiting for it patiently which they last tasted during the unbelievably fruitful leadership of Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela.

He proudly and loudly raised his right fist up in the air and said; ‘Amandla’, then announced the new Government officials as:

1.       FF+, Pieter Mulder                        - Minister of Agriculture and Mining

2.       DA , Hellen Zille                             - Minister of home Affairs

3.       AGANG, Mamphele Ramphele   - Minister of Higher Education

4.       ACDP, Kenneth Meshoe               - Minister of Finance and Tenders (Christians don’t steal)

5.       EFF, Julius Malema                        - Minister of Police and National Security

6.       UDM, Bantu Holomisa                  - Defense Minister

7.       Cope, Mosiua Lekota                    - Minister of Foreign Affairs

8.       Winnie Mandela                            - State Security Minister

9.       ANC, Jeff Radebe                           - Minister of Public Works

10.   ANC, Jackie Selebi                          - Health Services, including environment affairs

Then I suddenly woke up and said to myself; wow, what a wonderful world, what a balanced parliament, peace at last. Ever since there was peaceful peace though I’m not sure how long it will last but what matters is; we are relieved not only that there is ‘peace’ but working together above party politics is ideal and exemplary, just like in a family, I mean husband and wife carving a better life for their offsprings like our parents did for me and you!! Look, I’m your brother and you’re my sister in South Africa, we don’t need ideologies of names like AA’s, NN’s, CC’s, EE’s, FF’s or ACDPUDMCOPE or anything to sow divisions amongst us. We were born from the same world womb as ONE and why can’t we remain as ONE? I mean the world which God gave us and expects us to live together and respect one another as in the Holy Book. We still can embrace one another and extinguish the ravaging racial fire that takes us nowhere but only sends the Freedom wagon in retrogression!!

·         I only realised later than it was only a dream and tears started running down my cheeks. So our tears are a deliberate intention by our leaders.

If it was an attempt by 702 to boost his presidential campaign, it was a dismal failed attempt. If it was an attempt to sabbotage his campaign, and feed fire on the divide in the ANC, they just may have succeeded. Read more...
