Do You Agree That Anything That Has To Do With Political Parties Makes Sense More Than Anything

There was a time in South Africa where churches and many companies pleaded with the government to ease the lock down, or either increase the number of people who will visits their various places, but I remember the government refused. It is really a sad situation to realise that anything which got to do with politicians or political parties it makes more sense than any other in this time we are leaving in.

You may argue with me and say, no, is not like that, but when you look at what is happening it is hard to differ with my sentiments, because members of all political parties are on the street permitted to visits people’s houses and canvas for their political parties; and there is nowhere mentioning of Covid-19 spreading instead the opposite is reported on the news.

The main reason the lock down regulations were eased was to allow political parties to canvas for an upcoming elections on 1st of November 2021. Which means they were permitted to interact with members of community, and this does not make sense at all, is the government saying now we are all immune to the virus because its election time?

What has changed between when the churches and many requested for easing of lockdown regulations, and now during the time of elections? Who were going to benefit at the time when churches were requesting the easing of lockdown regulations? Who is benefiting now with the eased lockdown regulations? Are we as citizen immune from the virus because it is the season of elections?

Do you still remember the outcry of the South African Breweries, churches and some small businesses who were not active for quite some time during the time of hard lockdown? I did not see any picketing on the street when it was observed that we are nearing to elections. The ruling party did not write any letter to any one requesting easing of lockdown regulation. They just sent the president to come and announce to the country that from this date be aware we will be canvasing for upcoming elections.

What I love about the kingdom of God we are all equal and there is no one who will be treated special, and Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated this when he knelt down and washed his disciples feet, and he requested us to do the same as a reminder until he comes.

Do you feel I am being too harsh on politicians or everything I said is the truth?

For me politicians think they are the only people who should be listened to.
