I'm sure you'll explain what you mean; and why you consider my comment unwise/stupid/idiotic... As with your "bygone era" comment to Jack, you fail to explain yourself; and your 'one-liners' don't come across as particularly pertinent. Perhaps you'd care to share your insight which, without explanation, I find puzzling...

"we need some real leaders to come forward from the citizenry - BANKERS, FISCAL- and infrastructure EXPERTS . . . . . ." Really, Rob?! On what planet have you been spending the last 30 years ?

"These 60% are mostly kept unaware of the facts; and are fed only what the captured "independent" media provide." This does not explain why the majority of ANC members of Parliament or the 95% transformed civil service keep voting for the ANC. Surely they should know the facts and where we will all end up if keep following the pied piper. But they keep voting for the ANC. The mistake that whites make is to judge black behavior agianst white norms. It assumes that blacks see them as individuals with free choice like whites became after many many years of being exposed to democratic principles in a mostly homogeneous population. Whites brought this mindset with them from their motherlands. Blacks see themselves first as members of a tribe, then as members of the same nation and never as members of the mythical Seffrican nation. Black politicians have become masters at subverting western democratic principles for their own selfish benefit.

"...South Africa is an extreme case because of the small tax base..." Remember - a much smaller tax base supported the strongest military in Africa, enabled this country to build its own armaments, vehicles and aircraft; and paid the costs of a sustained war on three fronts for decades. Today's tax base is MUCH larger, yet we're fighting no wars, manufacturing no military infrastructure - indeed, we HAVE no military (army, navy or air force) to speak of... The question we should all be asking is: Where is all this revenue going, if we now have to (but can't) support what were once thriving organisations like ESKOM, SABC, SAA, SAR&H, ATLAS, etc...? What South Africa needs is a genuine citizens' tax revolution, including our refusal to pay ESKOM's ballooning rates, as Kenya's Nairobi population did some years back. Place all taxes in an unbreakable bank account, until the government provides what these rates and taxes are supposed to cover. Private, small organisations sprang up to repair- and maintain roads, drains and power lines; and private bowsers delivered water... OK - so we don't have real leaders in government - we need some real leaders to come forward from the citizenry - bankers, fiscal- and infrastructure experts to get this country on its feet despite the ANC's drive toward self-enrichment and destruction of the national spirit...

A serious flaw in the understanding of universal suffrage, is that most don't see it as "equal opportunity for all" - it's touted as "equal outcome for all"... This erroneous goal is excluded even as a possibility, due in part to the "unequal distribution of ability" (of course, Colonialism's fault); but due also to the unwillingness of many to do the necessary work to achieve a good outcome. If outcome is to be guaranteed whatever the effort, we end up with Marx's and Lenin's society - which, despite proof positive that it cannot work anywhere - is still the nirvana which the SACP hopes to achieve on the back of the ANC, without achieving a single vote in its own name...

"...My read on this is that 60% of the people in Seffrica, mainly blacks, are quite happy and content with the situation as present..." I don't believe this is entirely true. These 60% are mostly kept unaware of the facts; and are fed only what the captured "independent" media provide. They're told that the (white) DA is attacking the DearLeader because of jealousy at his high achievements, his many wives; and of his high standing, and the "respect he commands in the world community". It's these 60% to whom rational people and organisations need to deliver the real message; but attempting to do so is fraught with physical dangers to the 'messengers'. Therein lies the real problem - the debate is shut down before it can get off the ground. If the SABC, for instance, were not also a member of the captured clan, a sustained TV truth-fest would bring understanding and disillusionment to a huge number of important and influential people in communities where this message would have traction. So our DearLeader's strategy is exposed; and his shrewdness and cunning highlighted. Through carrot- and stick methods, he keeps those who could remove him in check; and those who could discuss- and thereby expose him gagged... Lessons well-learned from the Cold War days; and perfected during his shameful sojourn in Angola

They, and many others, are not in jail because of our National Prosecuting Authority. And the Hawks, and the leadership of the ruling party. And so much for having our Public Protector. See Zapiro's cartoon above.

Universal voting franchise is fast becoming discredited. As fair as it sounds, everybody is equal, the outcome is negative once politicians start using other people's money to buy votes. South Africa is an extreme case because of the small tax base but one sees similar developments in other countries. Maybe the right to vote needs to be earned and not come automatically.

Regardless of who wins at the ZANC's December conference (if it is indeed held), the ZANC will be led by a crook who has benefited from the ZANC's and Chancellor House's looting from the poor and has defended JZ783 and covered-up Corruptheid

Totally agree. Who will lead us to this promised Land? BTW, the answer I got when asking the question of "why do you people keep voting ANC?" was "because of Mandela". I kid you not.

What can one add to such a damning list of corruption? Words fail me. What I do know is that firstly, we can forget the ANC ever cleansing itself. At the last election the ANC received about 60% of the votes. The MPs who went to Parliament to represent these voters supported JZ783 en masse. My read on this is that 60% of the people in Seffrica, mainly blacks, are quite happy and content with the situation as present. Dishonesty, fraud, corruption, etc etc must be their normal default setting. Why else do they keep supporting the ANC? Secondly, why should honest hardworking citizens have to put up with this tyranny of the majority? The present shamocracy is the result of the pressure by the liberal deluded west who pushed for universal suffrage in order to feel good (assuage their guilt for colonialism) instead of doing good by supporting governments that were performing miracles against huge odds. My prediction is that the intra-ANC faction fighting for positions at the trough will intensify as the state's ability to provide services diminish and voters just stay away from the polls. With the Zumafia's desperate attempts to extend Zulu control over the levers of power we can even expect civil war. Separate development should again be looked at with a homeland for whites, self governance for every nation. Let the innate criminal look after themselves and leave honest people to govern themselves in accordance with their own value systems.

Luthuli, clearly you didn't stop and THINK for one minute about the situation regarding Molefe. The guy worked there for 16 months and was eligible for a R30 MILLION payout? Come ON!! It's all good and well to (after the fact) go and get legal counsel, but if you had been paying attention at the time, you would have realized there was something VERY WRONG with that scenario. If you HONESTLY didn't, then I suggest YOU resign because you are clearly incompetent. I suspect you were happy to let Molefe ride that SA Taxpayers gravy train! More to the point, WHEN did you get this Legal Advice, and WHAT have you done since then to recoup these funds which were incorrectly paid to Molefe?

This is a place to read news and make comments for other people to read. At a swimming pool, by contrast, you can go for a swim. The activity is appropriate to the situation in both cases.

The real problem here is that the President has too much power. This is supposed to be a Constitutional Democracy, not a dictatorship. The President should be compelled to give an explanation for his actions when requested to do so. Now that would be transparent.

The DA should apply to court for him to be declared a vexatious litigant - he loses every case he brings or withdraws or concedes after forcing everyone else, at our expense, to go to court. That way he would have to satisfy the court that he actually has a case before being allowed to waste the court's time and the public's money. In any case why is the state paying for his legal representation to fight personal cases that have nothing to do with his office or function as president? Like his criminal charges, actions against people like Zapiro etc? Does the legislation provide for these personal expenses to be paid out of state coffers? I doubt it, but if they are at the very least he should be subjected to fringe benefits tax on these million, because that is what they are. I bet they aren't declared or taxed, and it is a criminal offence not to declare these amounts in your tax return.
