Trust me

Recently our Minister of Sport & Recreation, Fikile Mbalula asked
"Do you believe your fellow countrymen or the Americans? #FIFAarrests"
Its funny, the fact that I even have to think about it before I answer does not do my fellow countrymen any justice. Now I know... I believe Americans are liars, look at 9/11 the war on Iraq, their police forever killing black men with no reprimand and that is only incidents I know off. And then you have our government. Our government as far as I can recall does not make it a habit to lie to us, but their constant coverups, blame shifting and holding no-one accountable for anything even the smallest thing screams "You are not trustworthy"
The reason I say they do not lie is because after they feign ignorance it has been proven that no-one can do a thing about it.

It is not that we are not patriotic we are but we yearning for some justice, we are yearning for someone to say "hey we made a mistake", the 1st corruption Scandal in the new South Africa was Sarafina II, then president Nelson Mandela came out and said hey... we made a mistake (all though I do not know how long after the scandal did he say that), and we moved on. An admission of wrong doing if there is any wrong doing is all we ask. not just about he FIFA thing (I actually could not care less about FIFA) but about Nkandla, about Andries Tatane, about Marikana, even the ousting of Mbeki.

All we ask is a democratic and free society... is that much to ask for?
