In 2018 South Africa saw the pressure exerted by opposition parties, over the past three years, culminating in the resignation of a self-serving and negligent president. Our unwavering insistence led to commissions of inquiry being instituted to start rooting out the cancer of institutional corruption in government.
Notwithstanding the ruling party’s leadership moving in the right direction, there is an unwillingness to have the perpetrators of corruption arrested. Its so-called self-correcting nature has proven to be a castle in the air.
This coming year is therefore an opportunity for voters to consider whether they want to put their trust in a party that places unbridled looting of resources before the people of South Africa.
We wish all who live in this country a blessed New Year. Let’s declare 2019 a year of action to fix the problems that embarrassed South Africa and its people in recent years.
