Hey, I am writing again!
I have been struggling to write & post these past couple of months. I discovered that I hadn’t healed as much as I thought I had. Kept on getting triggered & I had to shift my focus inwards.
Ever found yourself questioning EVERYTHING? That’s where I was. So glad to be over that hump.
I want to register my disappointment with the powers that be in this country. The rioting, looting and senseless killing of black people is uncalled for. The lack of leadership is appalling & I am ashamed on behalf of the leaders, the media, and the rioters. Whoever planned this is heartless & I beg the lord to have mercy on his soul.
Let’s be clear, Zuma is no angel but the ego’s of Zondo for refusing to humor him and recuse himself, the sealed #CR17Bankstatements are not helping in this situation because we are left wondering why house arrest wasn’t an option for JZ and if the judiciary was bought by CR. A presidential pardon could have helped CR’s image & in quailing the violence. There are 171 people dead, unnecessarily.
Is this a pursuit of justice or something else? Will the efforts of the taxi drivers and owners be rewarded in any way, since they have stepped up and shown leadership (& killed noone in the process unlike the white civilians who have taken vigilantism to the next level)? Will ordinary South Africans recognize their Zuluness or is it just the looters & rioters who are AmaZulu?
The toxic streets of Twitter are littered with statements condoning the #RaceWar in Durban and to be honest CR’s ethnic mobilization comment is the cause of the #PhoenixMassacre.
Ramaphosa gave a go ahead & declared open season on us. Our skins are weaponized and it doesn’t matter whether we’re Zulu, Xhosa or Tsonga, the other races are shooting to kill with complete impunity. My Venda friend Takalani in Durban North is in as much danger as his friend Thami. It matters not that you are not umZulu to them.
A biased media is not helping the situation. Saint Ramaphosa has failed as a leader & has incited a race war, which he will never account for because he is exempted from any & all accountability & responsibility.
Both factions are wrong & unworthy to lead us! The ANC needs to reform from within. We deserve better.
