Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

God’s Servant Also

Employment equity,79% black Africans in all organisations
an impractical socialist view; the ANC alliance with Cosatu
led to a Teachers' Union - SADTU - discouraging education
in a dysfunctional system without morals and values

Cadre deployment, political appointment, reward-for-loyalty
resulting in lack of capacity and continuity, also entitlement,
avarice, conflict and violence - the ANC no longer a freedom
movement with principles; the system staggering under

Corruption and incompetence, wrong ideologies, policies
and self-interest - faith believes God is in charge; Zuma’s
government is God's servant also - let us be light and salt,
pray for politician and state - and join the elections

Quietly working and waiting...

Has the governing party lost its moral compass?
THEUNS ELOFF, respected thinker and academic, gives his opinion..

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
