THE comments made by some of the so-called cultural experts and opposition parties are unfortunate and opportunistic. to say the least.
A comment by DA leader Helen Zille, stating that South Africans should boycott President Jacob Zuma in the coming elections, is immoral and tantamount to cheap politicking.
Those who claim to be paragons of morality tend to forget that there is an innocent child who has been dragged into the entire media spat.
The very people who claim that Zuma should not be forgiven are hypocrites, considering the fact that they are victimising an innocent child before it is born.
The most most despicable thing is that they are using the child to fight her father for political gains.
How will this unborn child feel six years from now if she were to learn through the media that the opposition parties requested the electorate to boycott her father because of her existence?
I cannot even begin to imagine the guilt and the trauma that this child will go through.
Though Zuma is a public figure and holds the most powerful position on the land, the media needs to be sensitive when communicating information on a large scale.
I am of the view that Zuma should have been consulted on whether he wanted the information placed in the media or not. As a communication science scholar I feel that we as the media have become too hungry for sensationalising issues to the extent where we are losing our moral compass, In a nutshell: we have already lost our scruples.
To all South Africans I would like to say, let us stand up against Zille and her political henchmen by supporting and rallying round Msholozi during these difficult times.
