Rekindling the South African dream - Mamphela Ramphele

Dear All, 

Firstly, thank you to Tando for sending us the speech. 

I also read the speech and I think it is a good start for Mamphele. The speech takes you, emotionally, through the journey of pre-1994 and how Mandela became the beacon of hope and the first democratically elected black President. However, the speech fails to acknowledge the hard work of the ANC pre and post 1994, particularly the work of Thabo Mbeki as the President of the country close to 15 years (I am of the view that Thabo Mbeki was the driver even under Mandela's Presidency). 

Reading the speech made me to ask the question, when did things go wrong? I remember, not long time ago, President Mbeki also admitted that he is not sure of the direction that the country is taking! It must have been late last year. 

Truth be told, our country became unsettled pre and post Polokwane! The reason that we are seeing the dawn of this "party political platform" is partly because many "have stood on the sidelines for lack of an appropriate political home" as Mamphele puts it! But above all, the leaders to blame of this current state of affairs in our country are Mbeki and Zuma. The power struggles between this two leaders has cost the ANC and the country as a whole a big damaging blow! Furthermore, President Zuma is unable to re-unite the ANC after these factions. 


All that needs to happen in this short space of time is not a party political platform, nor citizen charter as Mamphele advocates for in her speech, but a change of power within the ANC. President Zuma, for the good of this country, to step down and allow Ramaphosa to take over and drive the country forward as from 2014 elections! We can have another discussion on another day on how Ramaphosa should govern the country post 2014 and how he should re-unite the ANC. In fact believe it or not, he will have to dig deep and even approach leaders likes Mamphele! 


Dr. Ramphele's speech and her stance for a "party political platform" is a good start for this country to put pressure on the ANC to re-look at the face of the President for 2014 and the direction thereof of this country post-2014. It remains to be seen how the ANC re-acts on this party political platform  

Warm regards,

It is really interesting to read about the life of Mandela. The struggles he had faced and the path he chose to travel in order to achieve what he has dream of was so tough. It is quite inspirational to read about all those experiences.
