SA politi­cians are hyp­ocrites who thrive on tout­ing Madiba’s name

Sowetan - - Opinion -

I can­not fathom what our po­lit­i­cal lead­ers across all par­ties think. Ev­ery year they hold cer­e­monies in hon­our of this great son of the soil, Nel­son Man­dela.

Dur­ing these cer­e­monies they make long speeches, telling us about Madiba’s virtues. But af­ter­wards, all they do is the op­po­site of what Madiba stood for. They are all racists – both black and white – and do not care about the coun­try’s ci­ti­zens.

All they care about is their pock­ets and po­lit­i­cal ca­reers. They must stop men­tion­ing Madiba’s name in vain.
