. The resent film ‘Invictus' has been a painful reminder of the sentiments that brought us together under the great leadership of Nelson Mandela, only to wither away under the failed leadership of the subsequent ANC.
The nature of the weak leadership, after Mandela, is one where the ANC has managed to govern in a way that has facilitated the appearance of prudent economic policy, but in reality, facilitated the slow erosion of the state and its infrastructure. The ruling ANC government has however been successful in fraudulently transferring massive amounts of wealth to a small elite, while at the same time managing to accommodate radically opposing political views within the bounds of the party, and its alliance structure.
ANC Youth League president Mr Malema's behaviour during the past week, as seen against the backdrop of the Terre'Blanche murder, projects a clear picture that our worst fears may be coming to fruition.
