Voters in this country are ignorant and forgetful, consistently voting into power incapable leaders and then suddenly turning against them when the mood says so. As things stand, South Africa has a president elected by the politicians, not the millions of voters.
Cyril Ramaphosa should as a result be known only as an acting or interim president, until he wins an election.
We have fully forgotten in such a short time that it was the same ANC who defended ferociously a destructive Jacob Zuma whose leadership plunged the then number one economy in Africa into junk status and chaos. Let us all please close our eyes and believe in our dreamland, that all land has been taken from white citizens without compensation.
In this fantasy, the corruption-free government of the ANC and the saintly EFF have all the land given to black people regardless of tribe, clan, political affiliation and gender. Let us imagine that there were no economic sanctions or long-standing legal disputes and everything is fine.
Now suddenly we wake up and the Khoikhoi and San are claiming all the land in southern Africa as its original inhabitants. Lesotho and Swaziland are also claiming the Free State and Mpumalanga respectively as their own possessions, and that they lost these lands to colonialism.
