So sad to see what Mandela's legacy is being turned into ....+Financial Mail
"I am so heartsore about what is happening to Pravin Gordhan (Finance Minister) that I can hardly bear to write about him. Here is the most decent and honourable of South Africans, a true servant of the people, being hounded and harassed and threatened by shadowy, slithering powers that he might once, years ago, have considered comrades. Jacob Zuma’s intellectual inability to protect his own economy from harm is one thing. Actually preparing, slowly, deliberately and consciously to do the damage himself surely has to border on treason, or sabotage. No? Okay, then he is in almost no danger himself. He simply poses one to his country and, big time, to his party.
It is when leaders become detached from normal life that they begin arresting colleagues who disagree with them. What we are seeing in our country now are all the floodgates of exile ANC politics being opened, the thieving and lying and betraying that crippled the organisation almost wherever it operated suddenly being laid bare before all the people so we can watch. Back in exile, where nobody was watching, you could get away with the most vile behaviour and all it has taken for it to happen before our eyes is for the Leader and his coterie to pretend there’s no-one else in the room."http://www.financialmail.co.za/opinion/bruceslist/2016/05/17/bruces-list-a-daily-guide-to-informed-reads-may-17-20
