Every day should be Mandela Day
AS WE have just commemorated the life of Mandela, the question is: Are we doing enough to see through his legacy?
Mandela spent 27 years in prison for everybody‘s democratic rights but we are dedicating only 67 minutes a year to honour the indefatigable Mandela, so pathetic.
Take a good look at the status quo, what is happening today is the opposite of what Mandela fought for.
Poverty, inequality, state capture, cronyism, kleptocracy and greed, just to name a few.
There is no better time for introspection than now.
Let us start treating every day as Mandela Day. This will at least glorify his sweat.
Let us preach altruism, let us fight corruption. Let us strive to eradicate poverty.
Mandela did not serve 27 years for the few elite to feather their nests while the majority was suffering.
It is nearly 23 years since we changed from the previous oppressive regime. The ruling party must spare us sob stories by blaming apartheid for its failures.
Long live Mandela’s legacy! Hillbrow, Joburg
