The political landscape of South Africa has shifted since the inception of our democratic dispensation. The mindset of politicians is no more about the freedom of the nation but self-serving. Each and every politician or an activist is thinking of the shortest route to make quick money. This has resulted in the elite and the middle class being the only beneficiaries of our hard fought freedom whilst the majority of our people are living in squalor conditions and abject poverty. The citizens are used as cannon fodders, voting cows whose unsuspecting votes enrich the others by placing them in strategic government positions.
