People have the power within
WHAT appears in the media is correct – people worry more about what party will win elections in 2019 rather that what party has the greatest likelihood to improve the condition of citizens.
The tendency is to go along with one that is likely to win the election rather than one that would make things better. South Africans are influenced to vote for a party on the basis of the likelihood of such a party winning elections rather than such a party doing the best for them.
In 23 years of democracy there is little sensitivity to corruption, state capture, constitution defiance, squatter living, education degradation and minimisation of access thereof among citizens in voting patterns. Citizens are either not aware or too engulfed by an inferiority complex to realise that power lies within them.
They should be demonstrating and writing petitions against a constitution that limits them to directly elect individuals they may have confidence in, as well as limiting their power to hold to account those they do not elect directly but get to hold office.
Discussions of problems of an organisation are not discussions of the problems of the country and solutions discussed are not solutions to the country’s problems. Houghton
