“THE democratic genie has been let out of the bottle” pronounced Neil Coleman, of Cosatu in the heady days after the election of President Jacob Zuma and his government.
It was a government described as open, accessible, people friendly and pro-poor.
Coleman is not only a decent man. He is also a man of principle.
There was no rancour, populism or triumphalism in his words. His was a deep yearning to see our democracy maturing.
