• ANC worse than apartheid govt: Tutu

    "Our government is worse than the apartheid government, because at least you were expecting it from the apartheid government," he said in a news conference on the government's failure to grant Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama a visa. "We were expecting we would have a government that was sensitive to sentiments of our Constitution," Tutu said. "The trouble is that the ANC on the whole reckons that the freedom that we enjoy is due to them. They reckon everyone else is just a sideline." Tutu, who shouted and shook his finger as he spoke, said President Jacob Zuma did not represent him. "Hey Mr Zuma, you and your government don't represent me. You represent your own interests.

    If this is the case, why did we see the fall of the Roman empire? The fall of all empires, for that matter ? Why is power shifting away from the US? It is true that the ANC is playing dirty and that as long as people are dependent on grants, they probably will have no other option but to support the hand that feeds them. The ANC will bring about its own downfall. We are already witnessing the start of this, with public service and other strikes. Even a poor man will be led by the nose for only so long. The same people who voted ANC in the local elections are burning down the houses of ANC councillors. We saw the crumbling of the first pillar of power of the ANC with the formation of the Congress

  • Blair’s 11th-hour bid to help Gaddafi - Africa | IOL News
