This is often used as an excuse to create a supposedly democratic government that then operates a business as usual with professional politicians.
Nowhere can I read in any of those statements that say “the people shall govern” anything of a government and the US Constitution where it, apparently states a government for the people by the people of the people also does not mean that the people govern. The people shall govern means simply that, namely that it is the people and not a government. People governing themselves. Period!
The ANC Freedom Charter states clearly “the people shall govern” but what is happening is that the people are being governed by corrupt politicians who change the laws to make their corruption legal even, whether in South Africa under the ANC as it has become after Madiba or in the USA or Britain.
