Like many South Africans, I was shocked to hear about the murder of Eugene Terre’blanche. Not because the guys means anything to me, but because his violent end comes at a time when racial tensions are running high and the last thing we need is another farmer killed.
To add to that, I read the verbal garbage Julius Malema was spewing in Zimbabwe. This is not funny anymore. The big cheeses in the ANC don’t or can’t reign in Julius. The man is clearly a racist, crazed, uneducated lunatic! His behaviour is becoming more and more dangerous.
The ANC is not singing from the same hymn sheet anymore. Here’s another issue: while Zuma tries his hand at mediation in Zimbabwe, his youth leader lambasts Morgan Tsvangirai. Talk about embarrassing!
The question is, are we really going to sit back and let the likes of Julius Malema and ET’s followers (who are clearly intent on revenge) ruin everything that we’ve worked so hard for? Are we going to let morons define our future?
My only hope and prayer is that somehow, somewhere – from anywhere – there springs a moral, educated, leader who all South Africans deserve. A leader who we can be proud of – a person who will have the strength to stop all this nonsense, the courage to show South Africans that we need to find our morality again, and the tenacity to deal with the real issues that face our country.
Whoever you are, wherever you are – it’s time to get down to business.
