Nhleko vs Madonsela' s Nkandla reports


I have spent the past two days analyzing Minister of police Nathi Nhleko's report on Nkandla project. As far as am concerned it is well written and is substantiated with facts and covers gaps found in the public protector's report published on 19 March 2014. in this regard, the two reports complement each other, they cannot be separated.

Minister, Nathi Nhleko's report is directive to four key areas that were identified by Madonsela's report as non security comforts. The report has established that there is a security purpose and function for all the identified areas and his findings are supported by facts from expects. Nonetheless, Nathi's report completes the public protector's half done work. Conversely, Madonsela's report mentioned no expertise used to gather her findings and the fact that herself was not a security expect raises questions on the report and methodology used in her investigation. Therefore, Madonsela was not in a position to passing proper judgement on Nkandla as she was ill-informed.
Furthermore, Madonsela's consistent emphasis that the President should “pay a reasonable percentage of the cost of the measures as determined with the assistance of the National Treasury” is violating the legislator's constitutional right to deal with matters independently without interference from other arms of government. I therefore, appeal to the pubic protector to review the constitution of South Africa because I believe her recommendations are not absolute more especially when the issue involves or has been delegated to another independent arm of government by her office. However if the matter is not delegated to a different arm of government then the public protector's recommendation is given highest priority but can still be challenged in the highest court of law. No one is infallible.
In essence, both reports on Nkandla do not conflict but complement each other. The second document completes work that was done on the first document. Hence it is clear that Mr President and his family did not unduly benefit from the Nkandla project. Therefore I believe time has come for all South Africans to put behind the Nkandla issue and focus on other important national issues.

Africa-Asia against Europe-USA.


The gospel of Europeans and Americans that the one with money control the universe is now hunting them. In the past Europeans and Americans were handling the Africans in a way that they would not like to see them grow and be something to contend with. In words of king Sobhuza II quoted in Hilda Kuper (1978) "the treatment the African receives is such that it aims at keeping him just at the level so he doesn't achieve complete independence."
Today that Asia is the current world economic super power there is light among African Countries. Asia is empowering Africans to stand on themselves and compete with the world ideologically, economically, politically, socially and environmentally. Latest development is manifested by the signature of His Majesty King Mswati III of the tiny Kingdom of Swaziland in the Bandung message: 'No single model of democracy'. This put his Majesty's Monarchiaral model of democracy legitimate and worth practice under the values of dialogue.
The world is under the mercy of the Asians after Europeans and Americans failed to bring equality among human species. Long Live Asia, Long Live

Whats next?

"there is always time to do what is right"
http://quotes-lover.com/picture-quote/there-is-always-time-to-do-what-is-right/
Today signify the end of my 2012 academic year. Finally, I am done and dusted with all school work and whats next?

Indeed its not an easy question to answer considering that Professor Narvan Bachan has already denied me an opportunity to further my education (pursue M-Tech) due to lack of two years full time work experience in the same field. Then whats next? I seriously have no idea. Its true I can never go back and change what has been said and done but I can always learn the lesson to make things better next time.  My plan was to stay in Cape Town for two or more years but this has ruined all my plans, I have to move on, probably its for the best. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. However, I haven't lost hope yet. I still believe that I will register with this institution next year. On the other hand, I have already contacted other institutions and they are willing to enrol me, but moving to another province will drain me financially and psychological.

Furthermore, I'm please with my stay in Cape Town, I have gained strength, courage and confidence thus am proud to say "I can handle the next thing that come along eloquently." Anyways, God is the greatest planner, I just implement his ideas. Consequently, I'm looking forward to the next challenge.

Apologizing


"Apology heals all wounds"
http://www.quotesbuddy.com/quotes/apology-quotes/
At times there may arise a situation when our actions may hurt the feelings of our beloved ones. But as fast as we realize our mistakes we take the initiative to correct the situation and win their heart back. Apologising is something we do because we care about the other person's feelings.

An apology is the super glue of life. It can repair just about anything. Sometimes we may say or do things that we don't intent to. Our behaviours sometimes may not find the consent of our loved ones. These can lead to rifts within relationships. If you feel that what you have done isn't right and unknowingly have the feelings of your closed one then swallow your pride and seek apology. However, never apologize for something you didn't do wrong. Never apologise just to make the second person happy. An apology must convey your heart felt remorse.

At times we are too proud to recognise our mistakes or too afraid to accept our faults. But not apologising can cause us lose the precious relation. Don’t hesitate to ask forgiveness when you are sorry. Say it with an apology messages. Just pour your heart out on it and if the person loves you he/she will understand your feelings and accept your apology.

There are some things in life that may come easy but most things worth having or achieving will only come with dedication and tenacity to get it. My educational achievement for year 2012 did not come easy I may say. It was a combined effort of myself, my family, lecturers, colleagues and friends.

Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to all who supported me through out the year more especially, His Majesty King Mswati III for his continued financial support. My beloved aunt Her Royal Highness Princess Kwatiwako, my mother Sbonisiwe Mngomezulu for making sure that I have all I need to pursue my education endeavour. I cannot forget my younger sister Nonkululeko for her continues support and checking on me during my first months in Cape Town. I cannot leave friends who  played a major role in rebuilding my inner personality and for advises and courage both academically and in general life. On the other hand my academic success wouldn't be possible without my beloved lecturers Professor Narvan Bechan, Dr Elsabe Pepler, Marian Pike, Deidre Porthen, Jourbet Stefan, Miss Thabisa Nonzube and Rudolf Van Jaarsveldt. I honestly thank you for your guidance, assistance with queries and positive encouragement throughout the year.

Lastly, I thank all my colleagues for their patience in me more especially the guys I worked with through out the year Sheppard Botya, Thembela Lubelo, Athenkosi Tofile. My sisters, Nontado Nkuna, Msizo Dlambulo, and umkhaya Zandile Mcinziba. It wouldnt be fair if I leave my Public Relations Open day group Hanley Catlin, Majiet Rikki, Wagbafor Precious and Medjo Obam Parly Juliette.

My last leacture



"Embrace the gift of life"
http://www.actsweb.org/wordsofinspiration/gift_life.php

My last lecture is simple. I guess looking back at my past articles you might already know what am going to talk about, 'Life'. love life, it is important, it is valuable, like diamond and gold.

I wish I had so much space and time to write about this but as a simple person I will rap it like this. Don't be afraid to be who you are. Don't keep yourself from expressing love, Kindness, and patience. Don't cut yourself from the things that nourish your soul. Live in the spirit of life. There are no wall to keep you captive. You are as beautiful as you choose to be. Never let anyone undermine your intelligence, we are all equally intelligent in different ways. Furthermore, make use of the resource that are at you disposal to create a better future  for yourself and the country as well. Remember no good life can be lead without some bad days too. However, an idle mind is a devil's playground and all that is reality was once but a dream. Thus think good and practise right.

My last words would be to encourage you to love the Lord with all your heart, soul and body. Make use of all you have to create a better relationship with your creator.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

 

"Year of direction"
If I did not know how old I am, then I will be the same age as I am now. What can change that? A number doesn't change anything but the years spent on earth determine how old I am, whether I have an idea or not, I will still be the same age. For Example, lets say I'm 26 years old but I don't know. I will still be the same age.

If I had never know my age, it wouldn't matter or be an important thing to me. I will be enjoying life and forgetting about the responsibility that the people would have expected from me. Sometime the community expect you to behave differently when you are old but they are not always consistent with their expectations. For example; when a rich old man behaves like a 7 year old kid, they assume he is right. On the other hand when a poor person act the same way, they persecute him. Consequently, I would behave in a way that I feel is right at that particular time. However, by this time I would assume I'm about to reach 35 years old. looking at things ,I have already completed my B-tech degree and soon to enrol for my M-tech, then straight to work. By 35 years I would have expected the best of my living days, like having a family, good job and very much independent.

After all if I did not know my age, I would look at other people of the same sex and of known age and compare myself with them.
