Trump continued, “I asked Paula [White] to invite some of her friends here that she believes are in contact with God, so that you guys can pray for me that God gives me the wisdom to make the right decision as to whether I run [for President] or not.
As a nation we seem to have lowered the bar on ethics, our moral high ground and values. Politicians and state officials are awarded government tenders directly or via proxies. The ruling party – which gets a lion’s share of funding for political parties – quibbles with its alliance partners over its involvement with a company that does business with a state enterprise, notwithstanding an adverse finding by the Public Protector. South Africa is suffering serious reputational damage and the mood in the country is pessimistic. Our government must seriously attend to the country’s brand and reputation. This must entail the governing party and its subsidiaries saying and doing the right things and holding on to its values that have made our country great. – Makhosini Nkosi in SowetanBACK TO TOP
