Let us learn to give credit where it is due

Let us learn to give credit where it is due and reprimand what is wrong. It is disturbing to hear some of the ANC leaders shifting responsibility of addressing itself and citing politicising tactics by Adv Thuli Madonsela on truthful Nkandla report.

The leadership should put their own house in order and avoid more public humiliation in making inappropriate statements about Nkandla’s damning report, patronage wouldn’t yield anything.

The findings of the said report will go down in history and unfortunately is nothing to be celebrated, it be said that the tainted nature of the report will compel history not to judge President Jacob Zuma pleasantly in future.

Not so long ago the ANC celebrated its centenary, with many notable things taking place in the years of its existence, it’s crucial for ANC to admit now that it has put the government in disarray state, the country’s president is engulfed in security upgrades spending spree.

The dent on the reputation of the movement is of great effect as it is now tarnished and that is likely to affect their support during elections.

ANC needs to understand that every party can be toppled; it should cease to inhabit a paradise of deceit. If the movement is serious about retaining its prominence it should dust itself off all corrupt activities. The late Nigerian renowned author Professor Chinua Achebe penned a book titled Things Fall Apart as if he prophesied that rich legacy of ANC will someday be diminished by shady conducts of its own leader.

ANC should work on moral leadership if they aim to restore integrity and excellence within the movement. Being in denial of its wrongs can’t make them right. Public intelligence shouldn’t be undermined; perpetuating white-collar corruption can’t be applauded.
