Cyril Ramaphosa: " There is a gap between what we profess and what we do"

Today, President Cyril Ramaphosa and his cabinet were exposed. Ramaphosa informed the public that the ANC, specifically Thumamina, is doing nothing for the people.

In his inaugural State of the Nation Address, President Cyril Ramaphosa cited the late renowned artist Hugh Masekela's song "Send Me." In doing so, he inspired South Africans with the concepts of self-sacrifice, individual responsibility, and the significance of a mind-set transformation. However, the President has acknowledged that these were merely words and that they were not accompanied by adequate deeds. "We use the words send me in our policy documents and on our official flags and use them to conclude our speeches to our people, but there is a gap between what we profess and what we do..." - President Cyril Ramaphosa's eulogy at the funeral of Mpho Moerane.

The legacy of professionals like as Mpho Moerane, who worked quietly, conscientiously, and with integrity, will never be reduced, nor will their light ever be extinguished. A biblical verse came to mind as I listened to tributes to Cde Mpho and recalled my own encounter with him. Isiah 6:8 states, "And I heard the Lord's voice saying, Whom should I send, and who will go for us? And I said, here I am, send me. In addition, Ramaphosa pledged to introduce the ethos of servant leadership to politics and administration. "We require it today more than ever."

The local government elections held last year, according to Ramaphosa, were a wake-up call that the party must heed. South Africans desire and deserve leaders who put their needs and interests first. Essentially, Ramaphosa publicly exposed his incompetence. The party has not been attracting many guests. No surprise they did not find anything wrong with authorizing a worthless R22 million flag while people starve. Government struggles to pay R350 relief grants to recipients, but has no issue spending enormous sums on things that do not assist average citizens. Will Ramaphosa return and say "Thuma Mina" after demonstrating to the public that he cannot be trusted?
