LIVING in a true democracy where government leaders are held responsible by the public for their words and deeds, it is with sadness that I observe how people from developed countries view South Africa.
President Jacob Zuma, many senior government leaders, the ANCYL and so on do not do us as a country any good.
Some have the perception that Zuma is a comedian but don't want to be too critical since he is black. Clearly, and sadly, black leaders are held to a lower standard in the eyes of the world and are not disappointing it. Most observing the antics of Zuma question the logic, not the culture, of the man.
How in a time when overpopulation is a major problem in Africa can a man have more than 20 children? How can a man who could not manage his personal finances support his family financially without, apparently, turning to crime and corruption? How can a man have unprotected sex with multiple partners in the age of HIV and unplanned pregnancies?
The question most asked is: "What kind of role model is this leader to the people and youth of South Africa?"
Sadly, these questions are glossed over by those in the First World because they apply to black African leaders who, according to history, are irresponsible, self-centred poor leaders who cannot be expected to conform to the norms of modern, progressive democracies.
