Fifteen years ago the NEW SOUTH AFRICA emerged from the CODESA negotiations with a new constitution drawn up by the chosen representatives of all the people of South Africa. At that moment, and for the short few years that followed, we were united as THE RAINBOW NATION.
The vision of Nelson Mandela and Francois Pienaar proudly holding aloft the 1995 Rugby World Cup is forever imprinted on the collective psyche of the nation
Tragically, by omission and by default, good people of every political persuasion have betrayed our beloved RAINBOW NATION.
We have failed to stand up and say ENOUGH, NO MORE!
The outcome of our failure to act? The Forces of Evil have grabbed control of the African National Congress, and are within a whisper of seizing our BELOVED COUNTRY.
Collectively we have not raised a hand to stop them.
As a result
and, after the Dalai Lama fiasco, we can no longer even claim to be a champion of Human Rights.
What we currently have in prospect is 5 years of Zuma rule - with his cronies, Julius Malema and Vavi in tow.
Are we DOOMED to become the NEW ZIMBABWE or is there a way to STOP ZUMA?
There is only one solution, we have to bury all of our petty differences for the sake of South Africa.
Small parties that can at best hope to attract 10% to 15% of the vote are not a viable alternative to Zuma's ANC. Collectively however these small parties can attract 40% of the vote.
With that kind of momentum going forward, WE CAN STOP ZUMA.
It is a sacrifice that every political party and every truly patriotic South African has to make. There may be no second chances.
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.
