The past week has been interesting, to say the least. Rivonia trialist and anti-apartheid freedom fighter Ahmed Kathrada passed away, the President decided to reshuffle his cabinet like a deck of cards, and weed is kind of legal, sort of, but not really, according to the Western Cape High Court.
Ahmed Kathrada, an exemplary politician who embodied the values of responsible leadership passed away, leaving a legacy of respectable leadership that hopefully will be recognised by, and will influence future leaders.The President decided to reshuffle his cabinet, and it remains to be seen to what extent this will influence the country, economically and politically. This isn’t the first time that the President has made a radical decision which has led to opposition parties, as well as ordinary South Africans vehemently opposing his leadership. Interestingly, even some of the highest ranking members of the ruling party have taken to social media to denounce the President, and support those who were axed in the cabinet reshuffle. These are interesting times for South Africa, and hopefully the President’s reshuffle will have left ordinary South African’s with at least a trump in hand.
