“Over the ages, many have misunderstood the fundamentals of politics. Statesmanship/Stateswoman ship, just like priesthood, in some little way, TO SERVE HUMANKIND and NOT for personal interest. Tough. Think!,” he said.
According to Mboweni Statesmanship ought to strive to accomplish objective, to serve the humankind not for the personal interest.
However, the ANC leadership has received highly slams because of corruption they committed during this pandemic. This has exposed the party’s recklessness in serving the people of South Africa.
The failure of State Owned Enterprises (SEO’s) point back to the failure of ANC administration.
The People’s Dialogue founder, Herman Mashaba is pushing for South African to have general election next year 2021. He is of the view that 2024, is little but too late as the ANC is finishing of the country.
