"The Sunday Times is today the most hated newspaper in government circles because it dared tell the public that [Manto] is a convicted thief whose ineptitude has ruined our public health system. [SABC group CEO Dali] Mpofu tells us that such reporting in the public interest is inhumane and inimical to the values of ubuntu". Thabo Leshilo: COUNTERPOINT
I am beginning to wonder how many more times I can hear my government misuse the words:
before I start considering countries with immigration potential.
I am also starting to wonder what did some of the "Struggle comrades" really learn during their years of exiled education. (Well, we know one of them learnt the love of vodka!)
Is South Africa for the ex-Struggle exiles, by the ex-Struggle exiles, and only of the ex-Struggle exiles?
One would think so, what with witnessing how anyone, who is not an ex-Struggle exile, is torn to pieces by ex-Struggle exiles should s/he speak up on problems or potential changes in SA's governance and state of this state.
I am tired of loyalty to the ex-Struggle exiles.
Where is the loyalty to good governance, press freedom, critical analysis, monitoring & evaluation, accountability, true multi-partied democracy and care for The People (through the meeting of basic rights of education, health care, and safety)?
And lastly, I would appreciate if my President could better explain his constant use of words and terms such as "opponents", "hostile allegations" and "evil attempts".
Not until reading his letters on the ANC website did I realise that SA was so close to the verge of war and destruction. That "evil opponents" and enemies were so many and so present.
Surely, though, he is not attributing such wording to those people who have opposing or diverging views to him, president of all South African people?
But then, I do support such a woman who supported the improvement of South Africa's public health before her boss, and who says, "Speaking truth to power is not insubordination, disloyalty or lack of party discipline. It is an expression of constitutional freedom and protection".
