So­lu­tions are not mu­tu­ally ex­clu­sive. We need to re­place the leader who holds our demo­cratic in­sti­tu­tions in con­tempt. But if we stop there, it will be a fu­tile ex­er­cise. We must then pro­ceed to close all the loop­holes that led to Thabo Mbeki and Ja­cob Zuma ma­nip­u­lat­ing chap­ter 9 in­sti­tu­tions. Our fu­ture can’t be left to the good­will of one per­son. Thank God for Arch Thabo Mak­goba – we still have voices of rea­son.

To build strong sys­tems, in­sti­tu­tions de­pend on the in­tegrity and com­mu­nity-mind­ed­ness of the peo­ple who are aware that with hu­man rights come re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. They are in­sep­a­ra­ble. God re­vealed all to us in the Bible, but tells us to choose. We reap what we sow.

Mphatse Nt­shong Lim­popo Yes. As long as the new leader is com­mit­ted to the peo­ple and is not greedy and cor­rupt.
