A Bill to “impose high Taxes on Gov Officials

20 August 2012, 13:47

The government of South Africa should take a stand against poor service delivery by imposing high taxes on government and Public servants, thus includes Private sector that don’t want to conform to Labour Acts practices. The elected, especially those high ranking officials in the cabinet who receive stupendous salaries should be required by law to contribute 10% “tithe” of their salaries towards improving the quality of life in the poor and poverty stricken communities. A substantial contribution will inadvertently force public officials to adhere to checks and balances, knowing exactly where their “hard earned” money is going, rather than sleep in their offices and blame someone else for poor performance in their departments.

Accountability will be the order of the day in all government departments and institutions, with the result to proper management of funds.
Our country is inundated by continuous strikes that affect proper functionality of public service. We are almost two (2) decades in our democracy, but there are so many communities that still lack behind, when it comes to distribution of resources, especially in the Rural areas.

The poor quality of our schools and education system that needs a revamp; hospitals are lacking behind in administering their mandates; poor living standards and poverty stricken households is the order of the day which are the result of high rate of unemployment, Illiteracy and lack of Skills Development Programmes; Crime and Domestic Abuse are prevalent in our communities. Poor infrastructure deployment and service delivery result to discontentment from our society hence we occasionally experience cultural and racial clashes around the country.
Some Public officials are more interested on serving and fulfilling their own agendas instead of focusing on relevant issues that can “AID” to bring about changes in our socio-economic environment. Our government should priorities on strategies that promote the welfare of our people, rather than the other way round, that tend to encourage capitalists acts of greed and righteousness within the hierarchical structures of the government.

The “capitalists” acts should be admonished by all means necessary, this is the government the majority of people have put in power, therefore it is required that they serve the people that voted them into power and deliver on their promises before we experience a state of anarchy in this country, we don’t want a repetition of what happened in our neighbouring countries, concerning land grabbing issues.

Communitarianism (ubuntu) is the way forward, to ensure that our financial resources are well dispensed, instead of capitalists who take all for themselves rather than be intent on serving the needs of the greater populace. Our socio-economic is in dire straits, money that was Invested for good use end-up in the wrong hands. It is high time that South Africans should take a stand against any corrupt official/s that obliterate the welfare of all South African people irrespective of colour and race, we are a rainbow nation, intent on deriving equal and better opportunities for all the people in our society.

We as the nation can never habitate jackals who present themselves as mercenaries of democracy, whilst our socio-economic and financial sphere is volatile against our trading global partners. The vultures that use the political parties as vehicles to financial gain should be excommunicated to stand public humiliation and embarrassment. Our country should avoid any financial and political instability that could derail the future development and implementation plans focused to bring balance and change in and within the government departments that will ensure that efficient Service Delivery Policies and Upliftment Programmes targeted towards restructuring and reviving our socio-economic systems in this country are maintained and thus includes the SADC regions.One Nation, One Goal, and One United Democratic South Africa (Isizwe Sethu).
