Pastor's plea to Zille and Zuma

By Sabelo Mpana | Apr 20, 2011 | COMMENTS [ 62 ]

CAPE Town's townships "are a living hell". This is the view of Pastor Xola Skosana, who met Western Cape Premier Helen Zille yesterday.

Skosana earlier wrote to President Jacob Zuma and Zille inviting them to join him this Saturday on a 13km march from Gugulethu to Khayelitsha.

"Considering the immense political influence you both have, if you have any empathy in you, you can change the material condition of 300 families at QQ section, informal settlement in Khayelitsha, who do not have toilets as we speak," wrote Skosana.

He said on his last visit to QQ section, he "made the mistake of blinking" and his left foot landed on the "human faeces that decorate most of the area because of lack of toilets".

Although Zuma has not responded to his letter yet, Zille had asked Skosana for a meeting.

"It was a constructive meeting and we plan to continue cooperation into the future to remove blockages to service delivery," Zille's chief of staff Geordin Hill-Lewis said.

"I am as black as they come. Move on Muntu omnyama. Stop hiding behind your big words, the enemy is your ignorance or arrogance."

Thank you for your compliment. I am arrogant because I will never allow anyone to hero worship white people at my expense. I am going to be told how to think, what to say and what to do.

Apartheid is dead, but his children: racism, tribalism, indoctrination, unequal opportunities, urbanisation are still alive and kicking.

If I am a racist then my masters taught me well as I am now beating them at their own game.

Call me arrogant, I do not own anyone an apology for being black and my thinking.

Blacks were made to be racist by their masters, who entrenched in their heart to be colour conscious of the supreme race.

Apartheid created homelands, which were are way of keeping Zulus in KZN, Xhosas in Transkei and Ciskei, and other homelands, enforcing the divide and rule system of apartheid.

Urbanisation, once upon a time, our parents were not allowed to be in the city. They were expected to carry dompasses. Remember that most of our people worked in the mines, which gave birth to the building of hostels. We were expected to live in the rural area.

Unfortunately, some of the people, who were the chosen race suffer a lot from this sickness or shall we call it amnesia. They still have narrow minded and skewed views about the masses and terms like you people are still the order of the day.

On the education part, I agree with you and I think Mabiba's quote on the matter was the best.

All my folks from the corrupt Eastern Cape,are moving to Cape Town,so I guess funds have to be found by the DA, to built another 30 thousand toilets next year.If only the EC can utilise the rates & tax money properly,then we can make this problem go away.But no, they steal the money they receive,and refuse to listen to the pleas of the poor.May God have mercy on them,because hell awaits these corrupt comrades.

I am so glad the pastor came forward. I am also NOT surprised that Helen Zille responed,because that is how we know her in the Western Cape.She acts fast,when she hears about a problem.Our citizens are becoming proactive by contacting the authorities,and not allowing the garbage to heap up,and silently moaning.My experience is that when we contact and complain the DA authorities reacts.Of course we have problems,and its no use making service delivery a "RACE" issue.I am not white,and are very happy with the response from the council when I complain.These guys do something when the problem are raised.Hundreds of thousands of our people arrive here every year,and the DA can be a bit more pro-active to plan services for the influx from other corrupt provinces.

Racism - blacks are racists as well even people who never experienced apartheid first hand, what is the current government doing? what i see they are fueling the fire!!
Tribalism - Tribalism is when one group of people start to think people from another group are “wrong by default” - Naturally we can not blame apartheid here, still happening all over the continent, what is the current government doing?
Urbanization- is movement of people from rural to urban areas with population growth equating to urban migration - Naturally we can not blame apartheid here, still happening all over the continent, people are still moving from rural to urban, what is the current government doing?
Indoctrination - Indoctrination is the process of inculcating ideas, attitudes, cognitive strategies. Naturally we can not blame apartheid here, The current government is guilty of doing the same we are a welfare state now.

The only catalyst to all the ills is education, education and education.

Profound words of wisdom indeed? May I ask, are the playing fields level yet?

I see you prophesying about apartheid i bet almost all of you were not there...you just being fed rubbish by your masters something which the great president of the movement was against we must all live in harmony - black, white, yellow, coloured and green. And if you really put your mind to work you will realise we are more divided especially among blacks we down upon each other, your neighbours child is no longer yours, we no longer celebrate when one is making progress and the list goes on..then we look for the scapegoat which is white people and/or apartheid. Apartheid was defeated i see no reason how it now can block us going forward. We have a very stable constitution and no one will ever reverse that instead your masters are driving that fear into your minds--change is constant!!!
