Tony Yengeni has tweeted a tweet that appears to have managed to grab the attention of majority of South African who are well acquainted with South African Political landscape. And it appears, what Tony Yengeni has tweeted, has somewhat prompt many people to react with mixed reactions. And in his tweet, Tony Yengeni also mentioned a word "Imperialism" which has been used quite a lot by many political activists.
Those people who are familiar with political literature of the past generations will readily recall that during the struggle, many people used to say they are fighting against imperialism that was prevailing during the years goneby.
In layman's term, imperialism is state policy, practice, or advocacy of extending power and dominion, especially by direct territorial acquisition or by gaining political and economic control of other areas.
In his own words, Tony Yengeni said the following "We are told that the enemy is no longer the enemy. Imperialism no longer exists. And these things are being said by so-called comrades"
South Africa has been completely transformed; and the youth of Today are more likely not going to hear about words like imperialism and many more, simply because, the nature of South African Politics requires new words; and as well as new political theories.
