In his inauguration speech in 1994, Mandela heralded the country’s re-entry onto the world stage, saying it should become a rainbow nation that would never again be seen as the skunk of the world. Mandela’s biggest influence on the new South Africa was his personal determination that anger over the crimes of the past, including his 27 years as a political prisoner, should not motivate future laws and actions.
Ms Dlamini-Zuma’s fans often say that “South Africa is ready for a woman president.” Would she be any good? Her record in government is not exactly impressive. Susan Booysen, author of the book “Dominance and Decline: The ANC in theTime of Zuma”, predicts that she would be much like her ex-husband.
In support of black empowerment, South Africa reopened its land claim process in June 2014 after closing it at the end of 1998, giving land claimants another five years to lodge claims. Any person or community dispossessed of land rights after 19 June 1913 as a result of racially discriminatory practices are able to lodge a claim to restore such a right or receive compensation by 30 June 2019.
However I believe that the real reason for this response was due to Jacob Zuma, President of South Africa who recently changed his finance minister three times in less than a week. Such a move at a time when the country’s economy is under-performing has hit the confidence levels of investors in the country.
It concerns me that South Africa is building strong allies with those countries on the global naughty watch list amongst of nuclear enthusiast. When Zuma and his guys visit these places how accountable are they to the House of Parliament?
We are thinking that foreigners will save our economy – not true! They will exploit our lands and take our bounty… When would our Bantu people learn that they are short changing the sons and daughters of this land… Wise up! For this is the “State of the Nation”, and Zuma with all his gang from all parties today will give you a good show and trade you shiny objects in exchange of your land and soul – just like the Dutch had done when Jan Van Riebeck and his Investors came.
These are crucial times for South Africa despite President Zuma’s corruption cases. Mr Zuma has done his best in developing trade and industries in South Africa whereas Julius Malema may be too inclined with black supremacy to seek the overall economic benefit of South Africa!
Left, right and center – corrupt government officials are raping South Africa whilst we place our hand on heart – singing, Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika. If the price is right they too could arrange a meeting for you – We need to stop these Pimps in government before it’s too late!!
In the United Kingdom we go about our business freely with no apparent fear of crime even at night. There is an efficiency of the judicial system and the predictability and probability, as opposed to a remote possibility; of paying for one’s crime is the reason behind the peace and overall stability the people enjoy.
