An open letter to Mrs Helen Zille

11 February 2013, 14:00

Mrs Zille, as leader of the opposition in the South African parliament it is one of your duties to actively pursue the interests of those citizens who are not currently either members of the ruling party or supporters thereof.

Accordingly we, the taxpaying – and law abiding - citizens of South Africa, demand the following:

An official inquiry into why there is still no free education for all children – something promised by the ANC on numerous occasions in the past – whereas the President has been able to build himself a fortress using this money;

An official inquiry into the state of the South African Police Service, specifically their manpower, their capabilities and their readiness to serve, and protect, the citizens of South Africa;

We would like to know why they have insufficient manpower, why they have insufficient vehicles for both patrolling and response and why they themselves need protection – as widely reported – from security services. We would also like to know what is being done to correct these deficiencies.

If the SAPS are unable, for whatever reason, to perform their duties - as laid out in the constitution of South Africa - then perhaps it is indeed time to mobilize the military and get them to assist where necessary with crime prevention and the implementation of law and order.

We further demand that priority crimes such as rape, murder and robbery with aggravated circumstances be deemed crimes against humanity - in the South African context - and that the SAPS, and justice department, be given orders that these crimes are to receive priority treatment.

Lastly, we demand that you as the official leader of the opposition report back to us, within 21 days, on what progress has been made and what findings you have so that we may analyse these and take further appropriate actions.

Yours sincerely,

Joe Citizen
