The ANC has betrayed South Africans
ONE word describes the fate of our nation and the state of our people: betrayal, and more betrayal, by the ruling party of the very people they once protected and fought for.
As ANC MP Makhosi Khoza, who fought together with her comrades for democracy and equality, says: “I’ve been betrayed by comrades.”
It is as if we are back in those dark days before Nelson Mandela, just in a different scenario.
The ANC is fighting for power and money, not for its people. They are only interested in enriching themselves at the expense of the people.
It is with great sadness that I see what has and is happening to millions of people who are trying to live an honest life, and trying to build a better future.
Injustices are rampant and millions, who do not have radio, newspapers or DStv, are being brainwashed and misled.
Sadly, organisations have turned against those who want what is best for our nation, threatening journalists and politicians – even Makhosi Khoza, with her life – so that they can protect the greedy inner circle. It is betrayal.
Even those, who with the tools of democracy have sought to investigate the corruption and greed – such as Thuli Madonsela – have been threatened. They are being betrayed, and we will see how the people exposing the Gupta leaks will be betrayed.
Amid the turmoil, which leaves us at a loss for words, there are good leaders and politicians out there who we are counting on to believe in themselves and come to the fore for us to support and build a better future, as the nation cannot absorb the losses and the corruption anymore.
Right now, our nation needs new leaders to rekindle the ideals that Nelson Mandela, Ahmed Kathrada and others stood for, to free us from the shackles of corruption, to uphold the constitution and to make possible the change we once dreamed of.
