Highly needed

Finweek English Edition - - Letters - SIPHO MASIGO

YOUR RE­CENT “To my mind” col­umn on “unity is strength” was pow­er­ful but I won­der how it will be achiev­able. We’ve seen how the world of pol­i­tics has turned out if we talk unity – and yet we have op­po­si­tion par­ties who con­tinue to crit­i­cise the ANC or Gov­ern­ment and they ob­vi­ously have their man­date or wishes to gov­ern, so how will we get the unity right?

All pub­lic reps get paid by Gov­ern­ment and ex­er­cise their role in over­sight com­mit­tees to en­sure of­fi­cials meet their tar­gets in terms of ser­vice de­liv­ery. My con­cern is how are we go­ing to get all par­ties to also take the blame for poor ser­vice de­liv­ery, as they’re also part of Gov­ern­ment?

I think leaders such as Mam­phela Ram­phele with such great ini­tia­tives to bring peo­ple to­gether are highly needed. I do hope that it’s

not an­other talk shop.
