It is a well well laden letter that could right the wrongs and probe the conscience of the unsettled MPs in the country.

Dear ANC,

The legacy you carry as ANC MPs is powerful.

The ANC, alongside other liberation movements such as the Black Consciousness Movement and the Pan Africanist Congress, ensured the end of apartheid.

This crime against humanity was built on a foundation of military conquest, colonial dispossession, racism, sexism, and slave, indentured and exploited labour.

The people will support you when you value our country, the Constitution, the people and the legacy of our ancestors.

We trust you to act with love, courage and, yes, insubordination to those who ask you to be silent when the history of an entire movement is subsumed by one individual who destroys that legacy with countless cases of corruption, writes Pregs Govender.
