In current news, the United States’ president Barack Obama mentioned that he has visited most of the 57 states in the United States. Its role in the civil war in Angola was to serve mainly as a surrogate to Soviet foreign policy interests, so that when the ANC rebels proposed that their fight be diverted to South Africa this counted as unpardonable cheek, to be ruthlessly punished.
Apart from the grievous disrespect the outburst showed towards South Africa’s iconic first black president, it was a worrying demonstration of how the tenets of the ANC’s political style in exile had become the mantra of the ANC in govern- ment: centralised selection-making, unquestioned loyalty, no public criticism and the preordained election of leaders.
We have a really callous elite which feeds on its own vainness and carries on like they are foreigners to us. It is sad to watch our bothers and sisters pining and working difficult not to be Africans of Mzantsi, they want to be anything but themselves-Africans of South Africa.
