When wolves don't even bother to wear sheep's clothes

06 April 2014, 20:47

Right from the start (1994) there was a large number of comrades in the ANC-Alliance who were not happy with a constitutional democracy.

What they really wanted was a socialist government where they could control all centres of power. Many of them were disciples of Marx and Lenin.

Nelson Mandela was also a member of the SA-Communist Party until he saw the light.

They accepted a democratic form of government because they knew the Apartheid government  (who had the battle tanks ) would never agree to a communist take over and they would also have lost the support of the western world.

They probably argued that when things had settled down and they were running the country they could continue with the National Democratic Revolution .

Their ultimate  aim was and still is state control and state ownership of the whole country. They don't want an independent judiciary. They don't want a Public Protector who can expose their corrupt practices like Thuli Madonsela is doing.

That is why they interfered with and hampered her investigations and attacked her character.

They also don't want the South African Human Rights Commission and the Independent Electoral Commission. (Is it still independent ?)  They managed however to get their own people into some of the instruments of democracy like the National Prosecuting Agency.

That is why Jacob Zuma never had his day in court to answer to the 730 criminal charges against him.

Thabo Mbeki was  recalled in 2008 and replaced with Jacob Zuma because Mbeki and his supporters were not prepared to undermine the constitution and its watchdogs. They were merely inept but had integrity and an ethical code.

Zuma they knew had no such scruples so they could abuse the constitution and plunder at will. Since his appointment corruption has shot through the roof.

Fortunately the Protection of Information bill is not in operation yet or else the massive abuse of state funds at Nkandla would have remained a secret.

It is now clear why Siyabonga Cwele , Thulas Nxesi , Nathi Mthethwa, Jeff Radebe and others are so desperate to discredit the public protector's finding.

What is really soul-destroying is that millions of ordinary ANC-supporters believe Zuma and his accomplices have done nothing wrong. Zuma is their "king' and "father" and can do as he wish.

Have they no ethical values and principles ?

They are wallowing in abject poverty while the fat cats prosper in opulence and luxury.

Is there perhaps a chance that these people will see the light and notice that their "King"  is naked and has feet of clay ?

I believe not !
