Comparing great Karl Marx, Fidel Castro and Chris Hani.

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi with Internative Digital @756Writing
#I find comparison between Chris Hani and Fidel Castro interesting that the current Cuban president, Fidel Castros brother attendent the funeral of greal people liberators Nelson Mandela. I think for this the freaky week to end on a Sunday 27th November (from a Monday the 21st) 2016 make a highly significance on the struggle sacrifices made by these two leaders. For me as a community leader and entrepreneurship activist with the Black Friday this means a free weekend, thats a true special thing.

#I dont know what killed the Gurrilla spirit in South Africa that happened in our slums, especially with the township development. It was brewing, trouble was happening. Radical Rallies, toy toys, were taking place. people and communities attacking each other with big guns, too much teargas and police opposition, etc. Mbeki said on radio news that some of South Africans were trained in Cuba.

Even the death of Chris Hani, he was a great guy. Babylon felt intimidated, they feared him and what he might do on the movement to the emenating of this country freedom. He had a lot of potential oozing. With him alive South Africa might have taken a much different and harsher direction, thats what Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki leadership better differently gave us rather.

For Fidel Castrol brother to attend Nelson Mandelas  memorial service and shaking Barrack Obamas hand, and Obama shaking Graca Machels hand shops that Cuba and America understand the ways South Africa turnedout to be.

#Yet how its found communism to be turning out great worldwide, eg Fidel Castro leadership in the Cuban revolution, also South African doctors get free education from Cuba, (Quote my face book post). Also China with its communism state has become a world economic power, leading in business, innovation, production, etc. Africa and other parts of the world look up to them for investment. In Africa for where the west cant do china investment is over taking America and Europe.

#Even as early as the African National Congress (ANC) after the struggle became an unbanned political party in South Africa it made a trypatite alliance with the leftists organisations like the Congress of South African Trade Union (COSATU), SACP, (SANCO, etc) against the centrists. In South Africa such leadership has risen to the top and taken over the ANC and government. Yet it seems with their policies they are struggling to grow the economy, its falling, there is high unemployment.

For that in highly world class developed provinces that need a good investment to its people to survive , like the Western Cape and Gauteng the ANC is falling than the time of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki. Such provinces as these, give highly recognised countries for investment like China, Cuba, United Kingdom, France, the United States, etc a good competition. There is so much development in these areas. It does not get better that these places.

#This much rise of communism economies has come to the attention of Donald Trump and America. And making him in the 2016 election becoming the USA president over a good candidate as Hilary Clinton. In Donald Trump election campaign he has vowed to make the capitalist America great again and the man’s promises convinced majority American. They made him their president after Barrack Obama the first black president as also we long for a women president for fair change. We are observing how he is take over the world from communism rise as in China, etc we know the reputation of the country. He is like them he lacks politeness and customer service. I think we are about to see things come out of the wild for a long time.

The sky is the limit when Lindiwe Mazibuko come back from Harvard University. She lead well in the Nelson Mandela Democracy. She was heavy in the Jacob Zuma presidency first term. After the 2014 elections she went to do honors in the USA, I guess she cant be wasting more time while there are sure ways to success. Is South Africa ready for the atomic energy?

#With Fidel Castro taking the gurilla solution, all things happening he still did not crumble. Nelson taking peaceful negotiations and he formed a very strong foundation with internationally praised economics.

#Communism is evident in Khayelitsha especially on Rastas. In their own way in spirit they great guys like Karl Marx. They very critical on the conditions of working for another boss. That is how such community was established and got built. Even by what the first communities in this community are called it shows that. The main community Khayelitsha ( also name of the whole township) is called Village 3. Site B is called Village 2, Site C is called Village 1. I feel such a relevant vibe with man Donald Trump. With communism he competes like there. People are longing for economic opportunity developments extending.
#Lomfo its amazing how he had ifuthe for decades with his Island nation worldwide without American relations and still not crumbling. #FidelCastro

#I will never be critical, Chris Hani

#The comparison of Karl Marx, Fidel Castro, Chris Hani, eish Trump.

#Here is to be broken hearts still I am happy to say Iam optimistic about the future falling into place.

#Even Queen Elizabeth II is so old, to take over is a male William. There is lots of gender or sex struggles.

#These hard times I miss Lindiwe Mazibuko, her and Phumzile Mlambo Ngcuka, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, Patricia de Lille, and Nomvula Nonkonyane are so for the promise of what we hope for, still standing they are the best in my list.

#The African working class demonstarte strike here in South Africa, burning others resources, littering, etc.

#As Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama said, I have fought against black and white domination. Obama on his passing for that saying Nelson Mandela belong to the ages. It would have been ideal for women if it was the lady Hilary Clinton than the wild fire Donald Trump. It shows for a long time it will still be hard to have another American black president. After Benedict 16 retirement we have seen things change in the international order, a pope selected from South America (Latin) than Europe. Where is the goodness and love in this. Iam not happy about it. Its good to have people like Ngcuka on the United Nations, I been on their United Nations Online Volunteer Programme to help and be open on my business entrepreneurship programmes to such an extent the United Nations invited me to apply for the 2016 UN Secretary General position. I have project for 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, the 4th Industrialisation, etc. As Haile Selassie I said “it has been the inactionnnnnnnnnnnnnn, their indifference that has made it for the evil to triamp over good. I stood a chance to be on the right position. Anyway even the Great Britain broken its ties with the European Union. I can be busy on my own with what I have. I see people that putup with each other too much.

REAL RECOGNIZE REAL IN THIS MONKEY BUSINESS.

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

PERFECT DAY TO WRITE ABOUT TUTU

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi with Internative Digital @756Writing

While I was still at high school doing matric at Thembelihle Senior Secondary School in 2005, our school took us to the University of the Western Cape (UWC) open day  to learn about different careers we can follow at UWC. I got lucky to receive a free registration fee prize to study at UWC the following year and it was the start of great spiritual growth.

When I was born in 1984  Father Desmond Tutu received a Nobel Peace Prize. Eish I took too long to graduate, as I started at UWC in 2006, at age 22. If did not dropout 2008, the year President Thabo Mbeki was recalled and of global depression could had been my final year. I could have been graduated by him in March 2009, in time as he was retiring in 2011 as UWC chancellor.

As I dropped out I came back in 2010 the year UWC celebrating 50 anniverssary since its establishment and year of the Fifa World Cup, to finish my Bachelor of Arts degree, that year was so great as even a lecturer Dr Joeleen Pretorius at her final lecture in front of the class called me saying “Mr Sesi man of peace and love What do you think of the International Relations” that she was lecturing as I was seriously listening to understand I replied with “no comment” I did not expect for her to select me.
But now like the Tutus she opened me. On my own I had really written a lot about politics and International relations, I am doing projects with United Nations, etc. I want to be great international icon like Tutu, Mandela, Graca, Anan, etc. And 2011 happened to be my final and even if it gave me a hard time, with that challenge I missed about 3 marks to pass English Functional Grammar and graduate in 2012 as the first group of students under the new Chancellor Archbishop of the Cape Town Anglican Church Dr Thabo Cecil Mokgoba.
I am still thankful for every experience I had at UWC I enjoyed myself.
Eish even for Father Tutu in 2011 was a hard year as the government couldn’t allow His Holiness Dalai Lama to attend to his invite to address the first annual Desmond  Tutu International Peace Lecture at UWC to mark Tutus 80th birthday. For that he had to deliver it online through Google hangout.
On the 12 March 2013 the day of selecting a new pope as Pope Benedict XVI retired end 2012, on the 12th I became the second group to graduate under the new Chancellor Thabo Mokgoba. He is great I am still happy.
I remember that I became graduate on the year former president Nelson Mandela passed away. He said that education is the weapon that you can use to change the world, and he believed that education is how a child of a farm worker can become a president of a country…. That directly talks to me. Individually it signifies a new happy era, and I believe I have a brighter future.
I have become a good writer, not even the sky is the limit. With that happening I have been watching my spiritual consciousness change and grow.
As we celebrate 22 years of democracy and peace in South Africa lets take note.

Social Networks getting bananas in Mzansi, thats RSA for you.

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.

South Africa nation was set for the better

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi @756Writing
We are a one nation for the better. In the 1990s Nelson Mandela was building the nation further with the way Shaka Zulu did. The only difference is that the Shaka Zulu’s (and also with the National Party’s), the Nelson Mandela’s with his leadership on the African National Congress was through peace and negotiations with the oppressors of our people. If you remember Shaka Zulu’s nationalism was through conquering of other tribes and merge them to the Zulus. Also the National Party’s was through divide and conqueror or racial and ethnic apartheid.

Unlike what is happening just recently whereby other people in our townships are mistaking the nationalism with xenophobia mostly against other African foreign nationals, who are in our communities doing business for their own survival. Other people seem to not know the similarities and differences between nationalism and xenophobia. All people living in this country deserves a better life and happiness. That was our foundation and its good for them to find opportunity in it. It is for our good that our communities are becoming inclusive and diverse.

Its been about subjection not objection with Nelson Mandela from the start. He wanted us all to enjoy what we have. Even with Thabo Mbeki’s Pan Africanism ideology/ African Renaissance ideas we became well. We became respected, the world wanted to work with us. Its been an honoured for us and we need to always appreciate that as South Africa. Both Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki had done enough to serve the nation.

When you follow South African story since the early 1990s for the transition to democracy you find that our leaders tried by all means to keep the situation as normal as possible. That was to make more people feel included. It was about creating a nation that everybody can easily relate. Through negotiations glory was ours for all South Africans not wars and destruction but through peaceful means. That is what even other troubled nation long for that is why they all here for refuge.

Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki gave us glory through peace and negotiations. For what we managed to gain in our nation building, for us to be on the same page or same understanding we need to engage each other so that together we know how we can move forward for better and better.

With Mandela and Mbeki they improved our condition. With them South African nation made the right choices. it was truly a better life for all. All of us should be building on that.

What made the leadership and presidency of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki successful is that they respected the nation. They didn’t make excuses. They set or conditioned us for the glory that we have made and received. the people allowed it because its who they are. Its what we want about ourselves, as people we have ubuntu. The likes of Desmond Tutu stood for us well in that matter. Worldwide we are respected. Through negotiations we found a better democratic nation, lets take it forward.

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.
