Bog House

24 January 2014, 08:27

It is with trepidation that I consider to write this story, but firstly I want to send my condolences to the family that lost their little boy in such a tragic manner.

Reading /hearing this tragic reality real time message, of this little boy who lost his life why???, struck me to day again the reality of the situation, of this little boy heading a call to nature which is natural, but having no choice but to use what was his only means to relieve himself and then, what must have been an absolute nightmare to fall into the Bog House pit with no one to rescue him or hear his calls for help is in it self and atrocity of humongous proportions of human rights dereliction of duty to provide a safe sanitary on public premises.

The audacity of the departments of all present government employed people who are accountable to not concern themselves with the responsibility to amend ALL situations concerning public health and safety in all spheres of public amenities, is an atrocious reflection of self gratification above service delivery. "or just plain "ineptitude" THE REMARKABLE flurry of rectification of the Bog House is indicative of what can and should be the standard at all times, and not only when tragedy strike with a loss of a life!

We all know the answers to all the problems, it has been rehashed so many times, the regular comment by people goading each other over news articles is not growing an inclusive citizenship, but more hatred because of frustration from our present governed situation,

United we shall stand, divided we shall fall do not play into frustrating tricks to divide ourselves.

 I would like to make a passionate call on all citizen of south Africa, educate all people you are in contact with around you because not everybody reads or has access to media, don't bad mouth the present government, just enlighten our fellow citizen in a educated way forward about our frustration that can and will be addressed by the ballot box, fellow citizens our chance to change our frustration is now in the fresh elections. as the saying goes one cant fight fire with fire but a swimming pool of water will put the fire out!

OUR VOTE IS OUR WEAPON TO STOP OUR COUNTRY SINKING INTO THIS BOG HOUSE!

vote any party you want to, just not for the current government that has sunk us in this Bog House! 

and finally, no body is above anybody, we all have to use the BOG HOUSE sooner or later!
