Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
You know when a family member does something unbelievably stupendous and everyone shakes their heads in disgust?
There is usually a touch of confusion at the magnitude of destruction. One thinking soul, giving a hefty sigh, in that “Ja swaer” tone :
“Oupa would turn in his grave if he had to see this!”
That sums up how I feel about the “leaders” in the picture.
Sigh. Tata, turning in his grave. The legend who was able to unite many. All the personal sacrifices he had made for others to carry an Africa with a heartbeat I feel pulsating from my very core.
The struggle I supported, alive with men and woman who believed and fought against segregation and oppression, has been lost. I do not recognise the ANC of my youth.
Paying back the money falls incredibly short on paying us back our dignity and respect as a people, facing each other and foreigners when we are filled with disgust and confusion at the reality of our designated leaders.
Its going to take more than a village to raise this “child”!
God bless Africa.
I wish you enough…
