The ANC are not rulers - top judge

By Mpho Sibanyoni - Business Reporter | 2014-08-29 09:36:18.0 | COMMENTS [ 38 ]

THE ANC should not be referred to as the ruling party, Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke told a gathering of black managers on Thursday evening.

Moseneke, speaking at the Black Management Forum’s inaugural Lot Ndlovu lecture in Bryanston, Johannesburg, said politicians must view themselves as servants rather than rulers.

The lecture honoured Ndlovu, a former BMF president who died last year.

“We should stop referring to our leaders as rulers but [call them] servants.

“We cannot have a ruling party but [should have] a serving party,” Moseneke said.

Moseneke said opposition parties should also seek to be the servants of the people.

He bemoaned that the economy was not growing and creating many jobs that will liberate people from poverty. He said children should be taught to work diligently and create long-term wealth instead of making a living from government tenders.

He added that all chapter nine institutions, such as the Public Protector and Auditor General,  should be supported.

hawu madlabantu wangiphoxa, it is not Zuma who calls his party a "ruling party." it is the media. wadlala ngo Msholozi nje. Me thinks Judge Moseneke is still bitter for not getting that Mogoeng job.

I wish our fellow countrymen would understand this basic difference between democracy and monarchy. That one simple change in perception would take our country forward in leaps and bounds.

You coming to the real point. GOVT doesn't allow Public Servants to make business with it but the so called Politicians are making business with GOVT. You serve a Govt,you are Public servants. The Politicians are serving the Govt but are making business with GOVT. Meaning their business are illegal. Come on Ausi Thuli.

Dr Miles Monroe said yesterday that Mandela was a great leader that he realised that he had nothing to offer on a second term due to his age had to step aside for the country's sake! he said good leaders serve their people not themselves. guess we have Zuma who is just wrong in all levels of humanity.

Moseneke is a decent guy and has never shied away from speaking his truth. That is why he was not considered as Chief Justice, despite everyone wanting him to get the job

Mr Moseneke, do you want to keep your job? If you do, then dont be "clever". Remain as stupid as the ones that gave the man a second term.
