Give me hope Kathrada (to the tune of give me hope Johanna)

I’ve changed the lyrics of the Eddy Grant anti apartheid protest song Give me Hope Johanna to fit with the mood of today #KathradaMemorial

GIVE ME HOPE KATHRADA

Well Zuma he runs a country

Runs in Nkandla and the treasury

He makes a few of his people happy, oh

He don’t care about the rest at all.

He’s got a system we call corruption

It keeps a brother in a subjection

But maybe pressure can make that Zuma see

How it be better if he were gone

Gimme hope Kathrada

Hope Kathrada

Gimme hope Kathrada

‘fore the morning come

Gimme hope Kathrada

Hope Kathrada

Gimme hope Kathrada

Hope before the morning come

I hear he make all the golden money

To buy new power

but he can’t do sums

While every mother in the rainbow nation

Fears the future of a million sons

Sneaking across all the moral borders

Now and again having a little fun

He doesn’t care if the fun and the games he play

Is dangerous to everyone

Gimme hope Kathrada

Hope Kathrada

Gimme hope Kathrada

‘fore the morning come

Gimme hope Kathrada

Hope Kathrada

Gimme hope Kathrada

Hope before the morning come
