From a giant to a thug: While Mandela’s greatest feat was saving South Africa from a bloodbath, President Zuma has plunged it into violence, corruption and poverty. ‘Junior thug in waiting, Julius Malema’ pictured belowThe political vultures are circling; something of interest perhaps on One time South African youth leader, Julius Malema A very dangerous man, once tipped to take over from President Jacob Zuma, certainly some one to watch over the next few months.

For my part, I love South Africa and its genuine people, I also have close ties with friends and business associates, who are born and bred South Africans. Sadly the stench of corruption within the top-tier of government fouls the country, and penalises its own people severely.

Desmond Tutu, the former archbishop is one of a series of senior South Africans who have warned of growing disenchantment with the ANC, which has struggled to make a dent in the country’s many social ills, and is frequently accused of corruption and cronyism. Earlier this year, Graça Machel the human rights activist and wife of Nelson Mandela, warned that South Africa was an “angry nation teetering on the brink of something very dangerous if extreme levels of violence in the country were not addressed.“ The ruling African National Congress has managed to do something that Apartheid could not; it is tearing itself in two through greed and corruption. It is hoped that this will end its power grabbing days, and allow true democracy to flourish. The newly formed political party headed by Graca machel may prove to be the new broom that sweeps clean… Yours Aye.
P.S. I note that the great ‘Barry O’ is flying over for the State funeral of Nelson Mandela, yet couldn’t be bothered to shift his arse into gear to show the same respect for Margaret Thatcher. Possibly because the Iron Lady acted as kryptonite towards socialism…
P.P.S. And then there’s this from the excellent Guido Fawkes blog When Maggie Told Botha to Free Nelson Mandela ‘kryptonite, pure kryptonite!’
