Change in leadership is the solution

2016-04-06 06:00

PERHAPS change in leadership is the only solution to move forward.

Twenty two years ago a black president was a romantic idea, voting stations filled with passionate citizens who desired change.

Apartheid was an idea that oppressed human dignity, elevating others while discriminating against others.

Corruption, nepotism, fraud and unjust laws, these are also ideas oppressing human dignity same as a partheid. And we ask ourselves, what is the cause of high rate of unemployment, the falling of the economy and high crime rate. It all goes back to the culture and style of leadership.

The South African Constitution is only the best on paper, practically it is meaningless.

Philosophically speaking, ideas can never be destroyed by means of physical power. Bad ideas are destroyed by better ideas.

Our main problem is, we are no longer patriots of this country, we are afraid to speak the truth and we are sell-outs to ourselves.

When you have a problem, there is a right way and a wrong way to respond.

The right way sends you straight to the problem and the wrong way sends you around the problem. Which way do you choose?
