Is there anyone like Biko today?

Everything that Steve Biko did was for the benefit of all South Africans, not for personal reward. No one can mobilise people like he did. Since the dawn of our democracy, leadership has deteriorated. We have self-serving leaders. Let’s pray to God to give us honest leaders.

No one is able to unify us for a common cause. Biko cautioned against tribalism and ethnicity. The Zuma faction in KwaZulu-Natal is using woman empowerment to perpetuate tribalism.

As a white South African, I hang my head in shame. I remember 40 years ago, reading in an international newspaper while on holiday in Italy, of his death and saying: “Who’s Biko?”
Thabo Mbeki and Kgalema Motlanthe learnt to bring people together and can be a solution for us.
