Our task is bigger than all of us as individuals as we are about building a South Africa that is Non Racial, Non Sexist and Prosperous. As part of a Progressive Movement in Afrika and World Wide, we have a mission of building a better world.
Since the 1994 democratic breakthrough, what we need to understand is that, Apartheid Colonialism legacy remains with us in all manner of ways. Our Movement was born informed of a need to Unite in order to achieve all what we want to achieve. The old expression remains relevant as was in 1912 that United we Stand and Divided we Fall. When we are united, we have NOTHING to lose, BUT everything to gain.
A call to ALL those that carried us in difficult times, in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s must be made, firstly, to say SORRY for having forgotten about you – the shopkeepers who would earn as little as R500.00 a day, our Poets, our progressive teachers, our Priests, our Doctors and Nurses, our Witch Doctors, our Non Racial Sports People etc.
To all those that got disgruntled for whatever reasons and left our Glorious Movement led by the ANC, the time to come back home is now.
Remember, Leaders come, Leaders go, BUT your ANC, MY ANC REMAINS, with a simple agenda of bettering the lives of our ordinary People and building a Non Racial, Non Sexist and Prosperous SA.
