Channel Gandhi:P iLIVE
I enjoyed Professor Jonathan Jansen's column "2030 vision is blind", yesterday. I would like to add two comments.
I believe Trevor Manuel was given the task of developing the a 30-year plan only to keep him out of the way. I doubt the ANC aims to implement it.
What this country needs desperately is a leader of the calibre of Mohandas Gandhi. He overcame an empire without violence. He did not need luxury cars, designer clothes or blue-light brigades. He suffered with his people.
If it was compulsory for pupils and cabinet ministers to learn about him, perhaps South Africa would become a better place.
