Firstly, let me give you some background on me so you can put this in perspective. Yes, I am white. No, that does not automatically make me rich, own land, or be racist.
That being said, I would like to lodge an official grievance for my country. Yes I said my country, as I was born here and so were my parents and grandparents. Please do not tell me to "go back to Europe" as I only have a South African passport. If you could arrange my emigration, I would gladly accept. That wont happen, so my thoughts are as follows.
Why are you keeping the population (voting cattle as Tutu put it) uneducated? making a pass rate 30% is ridiculous by any standards in the world. Is it because uneducated people wont find a job (in five years Zanc has managed to destroy over a million jobs, but I digress) so they will stay dependent on a government grant that allows them to stay in a shack and eat mielie pap? Then threaten the poor people by saying publicly if you don't vote ANC, don't collect your paltry little grant?
Why have you allowed our public health system to collapse to a point where public hospitals are known as death traps? is it because you keep stealing R30 Billion rand from the taxpayers purse a year, so you cant afford to maintain them? I'm willing to bet my last dollar, not one of these crony fat cats would ever consider being treated in one.
Why are you unable to lift the poor people up from their economic hardships? Is it because you actually don't care, except to pillage the country to a point of no return just like our poor old neighbours to the north?
Why do you continue to encourage separation along racial lines? Is it because the old Apartheid government taught you this trick? Keep the electorate scared of something, in this case "die wit gevaar" so that they will keep you in power? That's another thing, why do you always say you will rule until Jesus comes? That's not only blasphemy, but you aren't supposed to rule cANCer, you are supposed to serve?
Why do you continue to allow a corrupt, lying, thief of a so called president to drag down the name of an organisation that used to enjoy great respect abroad, as well as at home? Now your once great ANC is nothing but a former shell of itself, and you guys should be very embarrassed. I'm very sure the likes of Luthuli and Mandela are rolling in their respective graves - may they rest in peace.
You are going to be punished in this election by the voters. Many have opened their eyes to your corrupt and incompetent ways. With challenges from EFF, a DA growing stronger, a no vote campaign by ex stalwarts, a disinterested youth and a criminal boss, you will lose at least 10% of what you had in 2009. Interestingly, you also lost about 9% from 2004 - 2009, so that makes it 19% gone in 10 years. Keep saying you will rule until Jesus comes cANCer...........I don't see it happening.
Please give us all our country back.
