A ‘White – Free’ Africa?

Blade Nzimande - Higher Education Minister

Blade Nzimande – Higher Education Minister

Recently, in South Africa, our president was again in the spotlight having to explain himself. This time it was for the millions spent on his homestead in Nkandla.

An enquiry was carried out by the public prosecutor, Thuli Madonsela. Needless to say ‘inconsistencies’ were found.

One of the first reactions was for the Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzimande, to publicly announce the report to be ‘white lies!’

This is South Africa, where people wear ‘kill the boer’ t-shirts, design ‘killing banners’ declaring death to the whites and where high level public servants blame us for the theft of their own people.

On any ordinary day people of all colours work, play, live and love together with no sign of racism, hate or fear. In Cape town where I live, it was like that long before Mandela came to power.

In a country struggling to reform itself it seems to me that the biggest stumbling block to unity lies in the mouths and hearts of the countries’ rulers. They preach violence, encourage land grabs and spread lies and propoganda.

We are a country of many colours and white is one of them.

With all their raving speeches and empty promises, not one person of colour has received what they promised. Years after we became a democratically ruled country the poor are poorer and the beautiful dream of true and lasting unity is fast disintegrating.

I can only think that disunity is the only weapon evil men have to remain in power.

Imagine if for once we all joined together and said ‘NO’. Imagine if together we called for accountability and didn’t back down until the truth was revealed. Racism has become a tool to confuse the masses and to deflect attention from the crimes of those in power.

As the voice of the white man dissappears, rulers like Blade will rejoice, but beware – eventually the people will have eyes to see and ears to hear and their hunger and pain will not be pushed aside with lies and fantasy.

God help us all on that day…….

    Painful transition. And as usual, regardless of the country, its all about the carve up of greed under the surface. The actual position of being a politician seems to attract someone who starts out to want to change the world, but the blocking and frustration of trying to get everyone to agree on something slowly grinds down that eagerness until you just become one of the manipulated many, so they give up and go with the flow (nose in trough). The actual thing they call government (and that is anywhere in the world) is a cesspit of greed.
    Yes, stuff gets done, but when did anyone cheer from a decision that came out of those places. It is such a struggle to just get them to change the toilet roll in the bathroom that we (as citizens) just give up.
    I think it is time (with our technology) to begin letting ‘us’ (the people that it affects) vote on all changes. Take that manipulation from commercial lobbying or just plain greed out of the equation by letting us vote by computer every 6 months on all major issues. Get the politicians off their backsides to put together propositions to ‘us’ the voters for consideration.
    Those that it used to attract because of its greed will no longer be interested and gradually the position of politician will attract back a type of person who ‘wants’ to change the world and for all the right reasons.
    Have a great day my friend and remember, the world is slowly changing, but like any change in our lives we must go through the hard bit, and then be truly free.

      Can you imagine them handing over power like that? Aaah yes we can dream! in SA if the people were to outvote the parliamentarians they would just announce that it was a computer glitch! Corruption is so blatant here it’s embarrassing! The danger of course with SA is that when the people have had enough they are unstoppable in terms of violence…

        Yes, that’s what worries me as that is what they are used to, so they reply in kind, and as usual, it is obtaining that long term peace that suffers!

    How sad to watch such things happening among those who should be leading. Here in Ireland there has been hundreds of years of anger and hatred between Britain and Ireland. In the last twenty years there has been a form of peace. In that short time the Catholics and Protestants within the North of the country are at last beginning to mix.
    There are at last children being born into a world without bombings and shooting.
    I hope your amazing country will someday be governed by those who represent all colours.

      Thanks Tric and yes you have certainly see all this in action for decades. Our sadness is that with Mandela we got so close and now we are barrelling back further than before we started!!!

    Excellent post! Underneath the colour of our skin is the colour of our blood. We all cry, love and think. There are more things alike about us than there are differences.

      Thanks! I agree with your sentiments, but sadly the more anti-white sentiments expressed by our parliamentarians, the more negative we become towards each other. We became united with Mandela at the helm – nowadays that’s just a dream.
