By Rilwan Mustapha I think we should do away with what I'd call ' cheap Black and White politics ';let's talk about real issues surrounding parties.I certainly do not anticipate what happened in countries like Zimbabwe happening in SouthAfrica.What some country bought with green-card lotteries to have a Rainbow of people,we,in SouthAfrica,got it on a platter of gold,free-of-charge and we can't see it : we do not know how to use this rainbow we've got!
The scenario surrounding President Jacob Zuma in becoming president shows he was destined to become one.I sincerely think that president Zuma's loyalty to the ANC tilted the scale to his favour and not the possession any document of arms deal.We need to know that,in SouthAfrica,people vote for parties more than the presidential candidates.
The history behind the ANC is the MOMENTUM that is always winning the political race.The question is,after the next two terms,what's going to happen.The Presidency is a serious podium that follows presidents to their graves.
The question is: ' when you are now the country's president,and not your party's president,WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY ?
