In the last month South Africa has sunk back to levels of violence not seen since before the 1994 elections where a fully functioning country was handed over the the ANC.
We have had the shooting of striking miners in what now seems to be a very carefully orchestrated show of force against the miners. Then the truck drivers went a very violent strike which also claimed the lives of a couple of people. The trade union bosses are now blaming a third force for the violence. It seems that when anything goes against the government or trade unions they need a scape goat. Sounds like the previous government doesnt it?
And this week we heard at the comission of enquiry that some big shot ANC members were threatenig some of the government ministers to sort out the strikers with any means they saw fit. No wonder we have the police shooting willy nilly.
So the rainbow nation is no longer the rainbow is was meant to be. And it is time the world took notice. We no longer have a Nelson Mandela leading the country, and he has been practically banished out to his modest rural home and no longer keeps everybody on track to a peaceful country.
