Moral classes

I SALUTE SIZWEKAZI JEKWA on the well­writ­ten ar­ti­cle, “States­men wanted – ac­tivists need not ap­ply” in the 25 Jan­uary 2007 is­sue. You are ab­so­lutely spot on by say­ing that our lead­ers should be sup­ported in their ef­forts for the “greater good” and not sim­ply be­cause they have been po­lit­i­cal ac­tivists in the past. Toni Yen­geni’s ex­cuse for not de­serv­ing a jail sen­tence is be­yond rea­son. What’s of more con­cern is the pub­lic who have sup­ported him (and many other lead­ers) sim­ply be­cause he’s an old comrade. The men­tal­ity of sup­port­ers who don’t judge wrong ver­sus right could jeop­ar­dise South Africa’s fu­ture. Per­haps our Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion should con­sider moral classes for all learn­ers in South Africa.
