Who have bewitched South Africans?

2016-04-06 06:00

PAUL once said: “You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you. Are you now trying to attain your goals by human effort?”

Despite the fact that I am very annoyed, I will never call my fellow citizens foolish South Africans.

Suffice it to ask: South Africans, who have bewitched you? Are you really committed to try to attain your aspirations if you listen to ill-advised liars and to the corrupt so-called ANC government?

They have been lying to you. They have denied the fact that other parties also have a right to be in parliament – being put there by the mandate of voters X in the same way as the ANC members. They have misled us, promising “A better life for all” and saying they, as the majority party, is the only party that can achieve this.

Twenty years down the line, when they are questioned as to why there is still no better life for all, SABC radio personalities on the payroll of the government will respond by asking: “Do you not see the changes around you since the ANC took over?”

I do not intend to carry the conversation further, because the expected response will be: “Only the ANC can change your lives.”

But to repeat the question: “South Africans, who have bewitched you?”

Since the dawn of creation there have been laws of progression and regression. Nature is not stagnant. Right-thinking people whose minds have not been enslaved by constant deceit, will clearly see this. But 20 years is a long time and people can easily fall victim to lies, deceit and counterfeit claims which in the end make them submissive and dependent on handouts.

Through their arrogance the ANC have become oblivious to the fact that they have overstepped the mark, thus believing their own lies.

What is also disturbing is the endemic corruption in their midst. They tell the world they are committed to fight corruption, in which their president and the Guptas are so shamelessly involved.

Fellow South Africans, irrespective of political affiliation and racial groups, the ANC is hell-bent to keep dividing.

As you all know, to cover his and the ANC’s failures and mistakes, the president will always blame the previous regime by repeating his stupid insinuation that we should be reminded where we come from in order to know where we are going.

I do not want to be taught history by a teacher with zero qualifications and no accreditation. And finally, allow me to propose a name for this rude party. The name for consideration and your approval is “Anti No-Corruption (ANC).”
