Today I want to touch on a sensitive matter about decision making.

In life we go through stages of decision making.

Some of these will make you popular and others not, especially if you are in a position of leadership.

As things stand, our country is waiting with bated breath to hear which decision our erstwhile beloved president will come up with.

Is he going or not, that is the question right now.

This stems from the highly anticipated suspense we have had to endure throughout the week; news of him being recalled by his own party, the African National Congress.

The funny thing about the decision he has to make, is that it is more like a catch 22 situation.

We are told if he does not resign, he will be forced to do so. That’s wherein lies the rub; he will be disgraced.

Should he do so on his own volition, he will avoid any unforeseen repercussions and stigma.

We wait in anticipation.

I speculate that, whatever course he takes, it will be from an informed decision.

Looking at the short history of our politicians in the current dispensation; they have a habit of putting their self-interests ahead of the people they are supposed to be leading. Men and women of honour have fallen into the trap of choosing loyalty to individuals over the multitudes.

Leaders are supposed to put the country first, but history in our beloved Mzansi has taught us otherwise.

Our leaders need to break away from this bad habit for Africa and Mzansi to blossom.

They need to out their self- interests second to those of the people they lead.

Looking at the decisions we make, which determine how our lives turn out to be.

Have you taken decisions that have turned your life for the better or worse lately?

Either way, fix those that have exposed your flank and work more on those that have set you on the right path, do not be distracted or be led astray.

It is never too late for mankind to mend their ways. Finally the decisions that each and everyone of us makes dictates or determine how we can either live in regret for the rest of our lives or live happily ever after. Either way, I don’t want to be in Zuma’s shoes.
