Campaigns have begun,
All of a sudden they care a
Great deal about us...
Who's fooling who?
Just yesterday they were lambasting us,
Just because we questioned
The deployment of our soldiers to
Central African Republic.
We thought this is a
Democratically ruled country,
Where freedom of expression is allowed.
It is a mickey mouse freedom.
Then the Gupta family aircraft
Landed at Waterkloof Airforce base
I shake my head in disbelief....
Tears run down my face....
Because this democracy they are toying with,
Millions died for it....
Nelson Mandela was imprisoned more than
Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe died saying...
'Yizwe lethu i-Africa' (Africa is our country) .
He must be turning in his grave.
For he shed his blood for nothing.
Opportunists are enriching themselves only and
The poor getting even poorer.
Great leader fought for this democracy,
Bantubonke Biko, Charlotte Maxeke, Griffiths Mxenge, Margaret Mcambi,
Prixley kaSeme, Lillian Ngoyi, Albert Luthuli,
John Dube, Mangosuthu Buthelezi, Clarence Makwetu,
Govan Mbeki, Oliver Thambo and many more.
Politic is a dirty game.
For dirty people.
