I have listened again and again to Julius Malema’s interview and nowhere did I hear him calling Nelson Mandela a sellout.
Could the assertion “Nelson Mandela is a Sellout” be the media construct to scare EFF from interrogating the Mandela Era?
Why are we so afraid to interrogate our best? Thabo Mbeki taught us to question ourselves every moment, question even our best ideas and believes.
If we are to plan ahead, we would have to be honest with ourselves, our history and our current circumstances.
We need to question whether in constructing democratic South Africa, did we succeed on one level and fail on the other level?
We definitely weren’t perfect. If that’s the case can we face the imperfections of the period.
