    Thabo Mbeki - Call for unity

    Thabo Mbeki seems to be hankering after the unity of days gone by.
    Mbeki asks how we can make a success of SA
    A movement similar to that of the anti-apartheid movement was needed to make a success of South Africa, President Thabo Mbeki said on Friday night.

    "This leadership of the people of South Africa, in all of its echelons, faces exactly the same challenge: To say what is it that we need to do together to make a success of the country," he said.

    He was referring to the anti-apartheid movement's ability to unite people in a common cause.

    "Why don't we come together again to address what is common and national challenges?" the president added.

    He recalled the years in the run-up to South Africa's 1990 multiparty talks, saying various South African leaders started talking with the African National Congress in exile.

    "In reality by the time formal negotiations started here in 1990, there was a common base as to what kind of South Africa we needed, what kind of South Africa shall we construct, a common view had developed amongst this broad leadership," Mbeki said.

    "What the leadership must do today is to repeat the process that happened from the mid-1980s which created the base for the agreement that was finally concluded."

    But who divided up the nation into priority and second class citizens? Who determined that some companies must receive preferential treatment over others? Who divided the Rainbow Nation anyway?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
