Why Open Letters?                                                  

By Menzi Solomon Shange

An Open Letter is a tool used by brave individuals who are willing to take a risk and speak out on issues that they feel are important to them.

The concept of an open letter is intriguing. Writing one usually makes a person feels better. It puts their name to something they feel captures the sentiment of the day. The letter is released into the virtual world of the Internet, like holding a dandelion and watching the seeds float away in the breeze… landing in places you may never expect and growing root into something beautiful.

Somewhere, somehow we know that a record of it exists for someone to read or discover, like a hidden treasure. It would be nice if the intended recipient of an open letter would ever respond, but how often does that happen?

What is encouraging though is receiving responses from individuals you respect, confirmation that there are others who feel the way you do, or others who have made the same observations you have. It is also a way to validate facts. If there is a mistake in facts and figures – people will respond quickly to set you straight. This is good in today’s world since the truth can be elusive – we all need each other to keep our collective souls, priorities and facts on point.

Often time it takes courage to write an open letter. The type of individual who takes the time to write these usually cares strongly about issues. They are usually high achievers who have busy lives but are creative in finding the time to write down their thoughts. These special people might be considered Future Leaders because they take risks, speak honestly, they are capable of critical thinking and are willing to put their name on what they wrote.

The large increase in open letters might be seen as a Leading Indicator of an increasingly larger divide forming between the needs of the People and the ability of the ANC to recognize these needs. It could be a strong sign that those in power who should be representing the people, are not listening, and their constituents are using open letters as a “last throe” in their efforts to get heard…a sign that someone has exhausted other avenues for communicating their concern about an issue, and are releasing it to the virtual world in an act of desperation and despair.

What drives me to write?

The slow decay in Trust and Integrity at the highest levels of government. The disturbing and reckless abandon of sound decisions, decisions made thoughtfully and with proper perspective, and articulated to the People as such. The lack of a plan to support the Vision. The lack of Results. The increasingly hostile environment for minorities.

My worst fear:                                                                                 Economic collapse may be the catalyst to propel An even worse political party into power which will result in complete loss of the virtues we love and treasure as a proud African Nation…ultimately forcing those of us who speak out to be eliminated or squashed.

As long as we still care about our beautiful radiant South Africa, a country of character, wonder and still oh so many secrets to share… as long as we feel compelled to voice our thoughts, desires and fears, let’s continue to write our open letters and utilize them as “one of our tools” to let the people know how we truly feel.
