From Zimbabwegate to proper governance and initiation schools whose graduates leave with nothing to show, this week’s Voices section is packed with the thought leaders you need to read.

An underrated scandal

Kay Sexwale says this Zimbabwegate is an underrated scandal. She feels that we are not outraged enough – as we rightfully were with the Guptas so many years ago. Let us always hold the ANC accountable, no matter who is at the helm.

End this humiliation

It is as if President Cyril Ramaphosa’s government wants to humiliate black people by telling us to our faces that the apartheid regime was right when it effectively told us that black people cannot govern. End this humiliation! We demand you take action. You are a disgrace. Govern properly, writes Ormy Makgoale

We can’t afford to be complacent

The danger of people letting their guard down is the new threat to the country’s defeat of the onslaught of the virus and the prevention of a deadly second wave. We cannot afford to become lax in the coming days, weeks and months, writes Anna Mokgokong.

An unwarranted attack on Zondo

Modidima Mannya writes that justices are not appointed to be nice to politicians who do not want to be held accountable.

Graduating with nothing to show

Phakamisa Mayaba says there is no certificate and no accreditation from initiation schools. “The only evidence you were there goes up in smoke as soon as the boma burns.”
