Anene - Born Free, Died in Shackles

10 February 2013, 18:13

The new South Africa allowed Anene Booysen to be born free.

The new South Africa caused Anene Booysen to die in shackles.

This is a black day in the history of South Africa. Every rape, every battered woman, every abused woman and child in South Africa, even  the women raped today during the 4 minutes I am busy typing this, is a disgrace, a shame, a black mark on South Africa!

Is this the freedom the ANC claim they fought for nearly 100 years? Yes, freedom for the animals calling themselves human beings who raped Anene. Yes, freedom for the animals raping a woman every 4 minutes in South Africa.

No, it is not freedom for the woman and children in South Africa. Freedom is not to vote, not to receive a free house, receive free electricity,  receive free water, free jobs if you cannot walk the streets of South Africa freely, if you do not have the right to say no, to enjoy your free house without being attacked or abused in it.

Government, please stop playing games. Stop bragging about the so-called struggle for freedom you fought for nearly 100 years. You struggle was in vain because that freedom cannot guarantee the freedom and rights of the Anene Booysens of South Africa.

Government, stop talking, wake up please! How many people have still have to die in shackles before you do something about it??

A while ago there was a spate of articles about white privilege that I really wanted to respond to but business being what it is I simply didn't get the time.
