Worth Knowing that the Government is not above the Law!

The real importance of the rule of law today lies in the basic idea underlying all three points (but especially the first) that the state should use its power according to agreed rules, and not arbitrarily.

The three elements for the Rule of Law.

  • First, that there should be no sanction without breach, meaning that nobody should be punished by the state unless they had broken a law.
  • Secondly, that one law should govern everyone, including both ordinary citizens and state officials.
  • Thirdly, that the rights of the individual were not secured by a written constitution, but by the decisions of judges in ordinary law.

EEF is willing to ask the difficult questions whilst others sing silent night!

It appears that the EEF despite how how radical their views, they do have the courage to challenge the government. This video will show how the presiding chair lost control and requested a Minister of Parliament to withdraw a fact without reason.

The United States of Africa – A New Government is slowly merging

Many people see it as a toothless watchdog, however, consisting of a club of leaders who look out for one another rather than advancing democracy.

AUHave you heard of the African Union? It was established in 2002, the African Union (AU) replaced the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which had focused on liberation struggles from colonial rule and apartheid. President Zuma has stressed that incorporating the African Union anthem in SA schools and churches will help build African unity.

“Starting today every school, church or community, choirs and individuals must practice the African Union anthem, so that we can sing [it] at all our important gatherings and celebrations,” Zuma told the crowd at the Africa Day celebrations.

“If we start with our generation now that they sing it and understand it in schools, we have begun to plant a patriotism that will never go away to our citizens.”

Zuma urged South African institutions and companies to begin flying the African Union flag together with the South African flag. Africa Day falls on May 25th each year and marks the day the Organization of African Unity – known today as the African Union, was founded in 1963.

The AU began with the following objectives which include fostering unity and solidarity between African countries, accelerating political and socio-economic integration, and promoting peace, security, democracy and human rights in the continent.African-Union

The AU is based in Ethiopia and has a decision-making assembly, made up of heads of state and government, and a representative parliament, which sits in South Africa.

More a political union than an economic body, the AU has staged several military interventions, sending peacekeepers to Burundi, Sudan and Somalia.
