The loss of patriotism is running deep in our country?

02 April 2014, 14:09

The Patriarchs of our democracy are bombarded by cries of despondency and it seems the Opposition Parties are taking advantage of the present circumstances. The people are confused on which party they should vote for in these coming elections. It is not astonishing when you find people crying fowl play because of lack of Service Delivery something which is a Right to all who voted in faith, but now the majority of the populace have traded their positions in society in order to canvass for these newly formed “Parties” that soon crumbled down over misguided representation.

The ANC has stood for the people of S.A. for over 100 years, campaigning for the “freedom” of all the races. The Stalwarts of our Liberation Struggle, people like John Langalibalele Dube; Robert Sobukwe, Oliver Tambo; Chris Hani and others have fought diligently for our People and it is a shame that we recently are experiencing all these tribal and racial disputes taking place in the political arena of our country. And now you find dissension coming from all directions, and the African People are contesting against the same Political Party that has stood for our Nation (Isizwe sethu) under the apartheid regime.

We as the Democratic Rainbow Nation do condemn some acts perpetuated by unscrupulous members in some organization and institutions, but it does not discredit the ANC and its afflliates as the political party of the Rainbow nation.

Since the beginning of the campaigns for the upcoming elections in May there has been a growing trend of people joining or crossing floors to what they term as the “party” of the future, where were they when the past regime was killing and torturing our people inside and out of prison.

The only reason that we find so much comedy in the political arena is the reason that the same bodies that are judging the present ruling party, is that they crave to change the Constitution of this Country to suite their “agendas”. It is the reason now you find people you don’t usually meet in the township running around campaigning to get in as much of the constituency to turn this country back to the Apartheid era.

A good organizational structure with a subtle Mandate will not canvass on the pitfalls of the other unless it has nothing to offer, except empty promises.

We need to build this country on good solid ground with leaders who have good fundamental “moral and ethical” values, to inspire the Young growing generation of our country, especially now we are celebrating our 20th anniversary into our delicate democracy.
