The African National Congress has today finally lost their way, the National Assembly and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa doesn’t’ matter to them. The ANC has decided to counter all of that as the No Confidence vote where happening today. 214 voted against it, 126 voted for it, 58 didn’t vote and one abstained.
This Vote of No Confidence came from the Democratic Alliance Member of Parliament Hon. John Steenhuisen, which we’re filed in on the 7th November 2016, so that today the National Assembly could vote in session on the 10th November 2016. Something at as suspected got silenced by the ANC.
So, today the ANC for the Second time has bailed out their President Jacob Zuma. Last time was after the revelation of the “Spy-tapes” and the 700 counts of Corruption on the current Executive of the Nation. Therefore the conducted result today wasn’t shocking; it was more the new-normal.
The ANC has forgotten its heritage, roots and why it exists. In June 25-26 in 1955 Kliptown, Johannesburg, the ANC made the Freedom Charter which stated:
“We, the People of South Africa, declare for all our country and the world to know; that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, black and white, and that no government can justly claim authority unless it based on the will of all people; that our people have been robbed of their birthright to land, liberty and peace by a form of government founded on injustice and inequality; that our country will never be prosperous or free until all of people live in brotherhood , enjoying equal rights and opportunities; that only a democratic state, based on the will of all people, can secure to all birthright without distinction of colour, race, sex or belief; And therefore we, the People of South Africa, black and white together – equals, countrymen and brothers – adopt this Freedom Charter. And we pledge ourselves to strive together sparing neither strength nor courage, until the democratic change here set out have been won”.
“All shall be Equal before the Law No one shall be imprisoned; deported or restricted without a fair trial; No one shall be condemned by the order of any Government official; The courts shall be representative of all the people; Imprisonment shall be only for serious crimes against the people, and shall aim at re-education, not vengeance; The police force and army shall be open to all on all equal basis and shall be helpers and protectors of the people; All laws which discriminate on grounds of race, colour or belief shall be replaced”.
This is the key aspects of the 1955 Freedom Charter, that is key document for the ANC, which is the liberation movement, spurred political party that been running the government since the end of Apartheid in April 1994 when Nelson Mandela became the first post-Apartheid President voted by the people and for the people with majority, not for the white minority.
So today, we’re the clock turned back and the majority, the people didn’t matter and again the Freedom Charter been stepped on by the current ANC leadership and the current President Zuma. The ANC doesn’t care about the value of their history or heritage as the one thing matters that are that Zuma stays in power and the ANC elite eats. President Zuma uses the ANC party as a tool to gain coins and riches… to get the wealth without caring about the laws and legislation that it effects. The People are paying the taxes and the ANC elites are eating of the plate delivered by them without care or consideration of the implication.
The ANC are now a skeleton of the historical party that regain the democratic state and prosperous nation that South Africa could be. It’s now a fallen relic of the past, it is still a viable party, but the heritage and the legacy of what it has done now has tarnished and is not the current party. The ANC isn’t the ANC of the past, by all means the same people are not there and that wouldn’t be possible. The ANC Veterans, ANC Stalwarts and the ones deceased will always be remembered for their work.
ANC’s Zuma are corrupted and only their power, not for the people or for the greater good. The Freedom Charter of 1955 is only pieces of paper towards the ones leading the party today. So with this knowledge at hand, the dreams of ANC and the ones while being prosecuted, detained, arrested and killed for their belief in just society on good governance values. Instead the ANC became cronies who let them eat together with investors instead of building the nation.
Each step of the way, they have now under the Second Term of President Zuma forgotten their history, their will to change and instead bought into the enigma of ruling party without consequence for their actions. They are showing now to the world that the proud liberation party is now a front for corruption, embezzlement and disregard for its own laws and constitution. This to save the face of the Third President since 1994; even President Thabo Mbeki entered and eaten, therefore left the gates open for Zuma and his fellow comrades to eat.
“As more evidence is revealed it has become clear that despite Mbeki and the ANC claims of no corruption in the arms deal, evidence has revealed corruption right through to the top of the ANC. Feinstein argues that in the end the Presidency was responsible for ending any investigation and pressuring the auditor-general to change the report critiquing the deal. The presidency was also involved in smothering all investigations by the national director of public prosecutions because of the ANC’s possible acceptance of bribes to fund its election campaign” (Chad Ellis Klippenstein – ‘LEADERSHIP AND THE ANC: THE THABO MBEKI ERA IN SOUTH AFRICA’ June 2009).
Just like the Presidency under Zuma undermined the Hlaudi Motsoeneng report ‘State of Capture’ No.6. of October 2016. That we’re telling of the evidence put forward and collected while being the Public Protector in South Africa under the Zuma Administration. Hence, therefore the Zuma suspended the release of the report. To silence the critics and evidence of the connection between the government of South Africa and one family who has invested heavy in different parts of industry; these being all from energy industry to the other businesses their currently involved in the great nation.
So the Republic is now is a shallow shell of what they old-ANC wanted, the ANC Veterans and ANC Stalwarts maybe wants it to be; what the ANC ones wanted to be, but is not now. They are a ruling regime who has forgotten the past; they have forgotten their values and gotten greedy. They are not in the spirit as they fought for liberation or governance for the People of South Africa. African National Congress, could been a nobleman and a proud party, but what they are under Zuma is disgraceful to the legacy and history of South Africa. Also the party itself; President Zuma has forgotten where he came and now eats of plates that isn’t his and expect to get away because he is who he is.
Zuma, the one that eats of the other people’s plates without any consideration of their hunger or needs; that’s what is left behind… that is what is the ANC elite and ANC Government of our day. Not the ones who created it or the ones who wrote the Freedom Charter in 1955. Over a 100 years and counting, the party of ANC!
Zuma, the ANC and the National Assembly has forgotten their role, their place and their status as representatives of the people, they have forgotten why they are Members of Parliament; most of all the President has forgotten his place and role in society. Peace.
