REAL RECOGNIZE REAL IN THIS MONKEY BUSINESS.

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi @756Writing

THE SPARK THAT RESULTED IN SO SAID RACIST TWEETS. They just cry freedom. Last year on the 31st December, Thursday reminded by Manchester United facebook page post about Sir Alex Ferguson’s birthday, that day on my facebook I posted “Irieness has costed my priorities and smart moves that I had no way to complain. Yoh crime doesn’t pay”. I started being a Manchester United Fan when he retired as a coach. By Monday, 4th of January 2016, starting the new week, which was the beginning of business for the year, places opening from holidays. Then still alive as Lucky Dube sang that “Crime doesn’t pay, education is the key”.

I guess then my posts became a spark because the Democratic Alliance leader Penny Sparrow likened KwaZulu Natal province beach goers to monkeys, that, that is how they are.Now you see the connection between Monday, key, monkey and man. Then the Standard Bank boss/ economist, Chris Hart also did his part on the whole circus on social media, also found to be about racism. How about those that work under him? Hart did well for resigning this week.

It took me to the end of 2015 #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall student protest, that here it goes again in 2016. And also that was the week for Angie Motshekga the Minister of Basic Education to announce the Matric 2015 results, the Western Cape had top pass rate and the Eastern Cape was the last in all provinces. Also with Independent Examination Board results already announced that weekend with 98.3% passrate. That was the week that set the standard and determines the future of South African young people, especially having to pass to further your studies to tertiary institutions. An issue that was still hard to solve in 2015 at our universities

This whole spark reminds me of the ganja struggle for success, how it has costed my priorities and smart moves, making me now broke.

I know I was suppose now to be painful but I am not complaining, they say inyembezi zam aziweli phantsi (my tears wont fall down), its nothing, things will workout. Jah will see me through.

As a spark I feel that something is being done about it, I see that from the things that are happening.

I talk expressing my self then something happens. Ayipheli into ndiyithetha( I make sense). For me I am loyal to our democracy here and else where. I call on all the people lets rise up to the occasion.

Ever since studying at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) I have been challenges by the monkey business or socialism making me to ask how social affiliation is measured, what is happening with that.Believe me I am humbled, I had studied at UWC, being around Bellville.

I think I know how Lucky Dube felt ever since 2007. With the national condition in 2005 to 2009. That also the years I lost my (grand) ma, may their soul Rest In Peace. On his song Lucky Dube said “you don’t have to know my political affiliation … or … my religious affiliation, give me Respect… I want to see respect”. That time I was still concerned for Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu as he was still UWC Chancellor to graduate me, on doctors order I dropped out. In that situation uLucky Dube ngumfeli wethu ( he is like our savior). That moment Bongi Dube came with an album that ” I don’t want to go around shaking hands with my enemies”, that “uyimbali”. Wyclif Jean also release a song that ‘Lucky Dube is a prophet’.

I wish we aligned with leaders like Helen Zille and Thabo Mbeki. They held themselves in positions with honour. Not what is happening now, the social networks going bananas in Mzansi or should I say that is RSA for you. Racist Econo- Political leadership indicating lack of moral. The Tutus to guide us are old, they have done their work universally, yet a lot still need to be done for us, more of by us to reach their levels and do more. A lot needs to be done.

Cliff was right when he said this monkey business was freedom of speech. He got fired for that as MNET Idols judge, and the court ruled on his favor and he got his job back. Focusing on racism waste everyones time with nothing to gain. Lets keep away from it. Lets set it out of our system.

The good leaders I mentioned in this writing their words and work still lives on, for those who still want to make a good progress to better life, that is still relevant.

South Africa is given respect internationally because of them. They have set the foundation, standard and conditioned us well.

We are free that means its up to each individual to do success for his life. Now its still the time lets not be distracted by negativity.

From the young age we need to take education seriously, its the process to success. It allows men and women to be independent. It is a key to true freedom, than succumbing to failures of racism.

Nobody thought me that, this written here is my own consciousness. Can I say I have a spiritual power

This nation was built on premises of goodness and peace. That’s the way we always prevail. For me I can say I see no racism in this but just working class foolishness. Clearly we want an open society, where everyone is free. And its true education that make us live a better life.Let us be beautiful like Mandela and Mbeki

On the first week of January 2016 I posted on my facebook personal account “Irieness has costed my priorities and smart moves that I had no way to complain. Yoh crime doesn’t pay”. I guess then it became a spark. Thinking further Lucky Dube says education is the key.

It reminds me of the ganja struggle for success, how it has costed my
priorities and smart moves, making me now broke.

THE AMBRUMPT TIME OF HELEN ZILLE

To AMBRUMPT— Its a new word I felt and thought I must introduce. I felt it from Helen Zille’s Sunday announcement.

Its a Xhosa word better well sounding when used or suitable for English. In Xhosa (kumthi wambu ogqiba utsale ubuncwane balento uyenzayo while the opponent iziva buthathaka). Your opponent sort of caught up in your moment but only for your own benefit than him or her. Its about timing. It keep the opponent attached to the event or situation. It keeps him thinking about it too.

eg on the 12th of April, which Jacob Zuma’s birthday, Helen Zille announced that she not availing herself for another term as the Democratic Alliance leadership position in the next coming Federal Congress, 9th of May, after she has held the position for 8 years.

8 is for the year 2008, which her other opponent in politics, former president Thabo Mbeki was recalled. Which against Thabo Mbeki’s leadership as state president and African National Congress president in the 2006 Local Elections Helen Zille for the first time won as the mayor of the City of Cape Town.

Then Helen Zille in 2009 the first year Jacob Zuma was elected as the state president, she then rouse to win the position as the premier of the Western Cape.

So 9 is for year 2009 his now opponent, Jacob Zuma was elected president for the first time. So they all interconnected to the 12 April event that Helen Zille made her announcement to not avail herself for Democratic Alliance leadership.

She is making meaningful sharing of her great moments or successes which at the time she was at the top pick of her political career working with young and sharp Lindiwe Mazibuko.

Also as Jacob Zuma is uneducated, as he did not even finish primary school it is interesting that she made her announcement on a Sunday as the following day, Monday the schools are opening. History tells us that in Africa formal education started at churches.

As the president name is Jacob, a biblical name so he is attached. Lindiwe Mazibuko a former Democratic Alliance parliamentary leader who went to study Public Administration at Harvard University to get an dept knowledge of her work, at the end of year 2012 she delivered a motion of no confidence against Jacob Zuma in parliament, so the 12th means a lot to all of them. Date 2012-12-12 was the year in Christian calender was believed to be the end of the world. It means a lot to those who believe in that religion. (UJacob Zuma yena uzoba buthathaka), meaning he wont feel good or nice because DA used all of that to oppose him or his rule.

And you can tell that on her announcement Helen Zille wanted to address the need to be educated when holding leadership position and/ or government or public office. You can remember in South Africa we have people cheating to take positions without having the needed qualifications. DA has fought court battle against that, eg SABC boss, etc. Nelson Mandela believed that only through education that a child of a domestic worker can become a president.

As Jacob Zuma is the current intense competition or political opponent to Helen Zille, its bad energies or discomfort to him. He is to stay disturbed for some time. He is to remember Helen Zille for some time. Even those who are aware are to stay thinking about the event.

Its about mind hook or attachment. It may make what Jacob Zuma, Thabo Mbeki and those who are aware of the situation what they do next to think, talk or address what they realise from whatever Helen Zille said or what ever happened at that event.

Ambrumpt may create response or reaction directly or indirectly making it to have discourses remembered for sometime.

That means she had done her research, because she is using what they know or aware of for her own doing. As it is politics and dealing with public figures many people’s awareness will be affected. it is to keep them or followers of the story thinking.

All these dates and events are attached together or interconnected by meaning or significance. they have important interpretation to the people who engage with them.

Trevor Manuel is the right candidate for President.

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi

The best way that Trevor Manuel can rise above the attempts to bring him into disrepute, of have failed the people, is for him to become president of the country. He is so suitable even before Jacob Zuma became president.

A friend on facebook posted “The 3 C’s of life: choices, chances and changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.” So I realized that how our life turns out its up to us including this country’s direction.

Manuel must stay open to the opportunities. Let’s admit it Mamphela Ramphele in Agang SA changed and opened the landscape of party politics. He must remain free for any good way that make this country move in the right direction for our best interests.

As Manuel is the Minister in the Presidency for National Planning, he created National Development Plan (NDP). He should prove the rightfulness of the NDP. Scholars and civil society are praising it. Labour Unions in alliance with the African National Congress (ANC) criticize it, making it a scapegoat for their lack of willingness to understand for that wanting to share the consequences. Society must take advantage of what it benefits them, because even if it was not made the way it is, people would still need to be open to it. It is helpful than some people showing negativity for it. People need freedom and all that comes with it now.

In these slow global economic times South Africa’s (SA) growth is lacking behind as emerging power when compared to others. Brazil, Russia, India, China in the Brics had handled it better. With us also its something we can do something about. Let’s better organize our resources and place the right people in the right positions then we will get the decent life we all deserve. Its proven.

Ramphela is competing too. We have more in our plate, the elections competition is high. Its not like we have less in our country. These are the times to really think and now people are really challenged to do so. SA elections are starting to become a platform to solve problems in my age and as we move forward with our freedom and democracy more people will do so.

Manuel is a dedicated worker, we are lucky that he remains strong for the country. If he becomes a president he will help us recover from the mess Zuma’s leadership has put us through. The opposition parties have been blaming him for undue influence in government. Democratic Alliance asked him in parliament to end his relationships with individuals who bring him bad reputation and damage the image of the president. This country still needs all the help it can get. Former President Thabo Mbeki was very careful of Zumas wrong tendencies and fired him as his deputy president. Mbeki’s government kept momentum, it became a success. For Manuel good work undermined by this country because of poor political decisions its what each and everyone of us can do something about and we don’t need another new political party, our country is still open to good chances.

Trevor Manuel is the right candidate that is prepared to fix this country from this mess, him and us can do something about it now.

South Africa needs more right leaders like Mandela.

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi

It’s hard enough uplifting another person along. Let’s be glad when a person improves her life and move up to reach for the stars.

The Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele and working in good organizations now she is pursuing political power. Is she late or on
time with her party to gain the support that needs her? The party that takes government may it acknowledges her willingness to help and competence, and allow her to provide services.

Nelson Mandela has just passed on and in South Africa (SA) we need more right leaders like him. The country has to keep on moving forward. One thing we can be sure of Ramphele has proved to be equipped for that. With Former President Thabo Mbeki who have proven quality track record than President Jacob Zuma but replaced him in the race for African National Congress (ANC) president in Polokwane. Zuma has not done well in his just finishing term this year, can Ramphele and Agang SA make people realize the importance of valuing quality from people? Ramphele got necessary knowledge, experience and vision that she wants to share for the benefit of ordinary people out of struggle. She got grasp of the people’s best interests. She is the role model for the kind of future young people should aspire to have in SA. In parliament she will be a credible voice.

She had been on leading feed up and think tank institutions. Her input will go a long way. Especially in the future of young people as in education that she holds dearly, is in crises more people like her working it will be a step to the right direction. They are good in making themselves be useful to improve other people’s lives. They know when it’s the right platform and time. They do all they can to make it work. We have seen this when Mbeki was a president how he closely driven the economy and the Department of Foreign Affairs now known as International Relations and Cooperation to condition, how he conditioned the country’s economy to attract foreign investment and grow. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka who he made his deputy president now she holds an office as the Executive Director of UN Women. And Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma who was minister of Health under President Mandela and minister of Foreign Affairs under president Mbeki is the Chairperson of the African Union Commission. Mbeki always preached selfless leadership. He spoke out against those who use ANC and government for self interest and self enrichment. For people like Zuma, Mbeki has been a humbling example and I wish the people may realize what’s best for them in time.

As 2014 is twenty years in democracy so it’s good that leaders like Ramphele are not discouraged but avail them. It shows that we have not run out of quality leaders to help lead the way.

For the country to move out of this slowly encroaching national crises from Zuma’s administration we need to be careful and cautious on our 2014 vote. Economy is slow, education is poor, poor service delivery, corruption, disruption of small local markets, etc, in all that it the poorest who suffer the most from that. All of us can find a way to work together to build and protect our country, we can’t say we don’t have the people.

We don’t need wars, shrinking economies, and other problems Africa is faced with. Even Helen Zille thinks that if Ramphele could join Democratic Alliance she would get a higher position because of her competence and experience. The Anglican Church of Cape Town Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu thinks that her voice would be very important in parliament. They had been there to help us, and they still avail themselves for what we need let’s make the right decisions.

Mbeki was in exile in a country with democracy and when he became president he proved to be the right person at the right time after Mandela who was the first president just after his 27 years in prison.

After Zuma we need the right people in government so that we can turn up the tide and create a country conducive for more people. We have the leaders and we might as well use them. The nation depends on it.

Basic education means a lot than provided.

Being passionate for the cause is what is happening between Democratic Alliance (DA) and Equal Education (EE). They are in reality in terms of our education than the department thought it would mean less hardwork. With them, especially EE find that government gets away with cheating the nation. From following their engagement and arguments about the state of out education you realize that with in their different approaches in trying to help it, what they bring to the table is real deal.

For government to call grade 12 and grades below as Department of Basic Education still that doesn’t mean or explain the poor quality of education they giving our children. Even though the DA leader Helen
Zille acknowledges that the Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga is being pressured for her department to account on what in terms of resources she can’t deliver on demanded deadlines, it’s clear “basic education” is still a big term compared to the condition and quality of service they provide.

When I was a member of Representative Council of Learners (RCL), School Governing Board(SGB), Khayelitsha Student Empowerment Forum (KSEF) and Khayelitsha Education Forum from year 2003 to 2005, to passover the new Outcome Based Education (OBE) to our community and schools the Western Cape Department of Education explained the programme especially Further Education and Training, FET’s  (grade 10 to 12) as an upgrade to education similar to that of colleges, for learners to come out equipped enough to sell their skills. In reality there seems to be shortfalls for quality standards or outcomes.

I guess in the next government they should change “Basic Education” to another term because they failing the currently used. Which I do not think even in African languages there is an acceptable term for.
Blaming it on using English as medium of instruction, as people who send their children to English and Afrikaans speaking schools would politically argue is not the real issue. Even Mamphela Ramphele believes that the state of current education is poorer than that of 1976.

You can tell that basic education is not just an empty term but a real life condition which many of our pupils is just an empty promise the live under. Especially Equal Education on its focus is very helpful in
pushing government in making sure that every child gets what he and she deserves.

It’s unfair for the children of the poor as government workers especially from the middle class, to be exact, the teachers because government pay them well to send their children to best schools but
still at our township schools they providing poor services. To commit to their job they need to be kept accountable.

Well done to the different approaches of DA and EE in sharing light for the people on the realities of our education there is still hope for the children of the poor. For government to realize that their department is for basic education, for Motshekga that still means a lot, for it there still more work needed than the current condition especially for the townships and rural areas. In clear and simple
terms that means delivering the necessary for our children to be able to live or get by.  Even if they don’t further their studies still have enough to provide for a decent life.
