Loyalty to the ANC masks wrongdoing

I acknowledge that the ANC has done a lot for South Africa.

I am proud of the way it has fought for our freedom and I have embraced the new leaders as heroes and heroines. But it seems that we are so blinded by and proud of the ANC name that we refuse to see our new leaders' corruption and bad manners. For instance, had Jacob Zuma formed a new party, would people have followed him? I don't think so.

We love and embrace the ANC name so much that we can't walk away, despite its leaders. I'd rather "kill" for the ANC than for Zuma. It is unfortunate that so much damage has been done to a party that so many died for.
