Changing forensics is SA...

13 March 2014, 11:59
It is common knowledge that we are way under equipped when it comes to any kind of DNA testing in SA.
I am told we have a lab at Wits and we have maybe 1 more lab somewhere else in SA,
Could we not be sourcing second equipment form the USA ? 
They have over 50 states and possibly forensic laboratories in most states .
We have 50 Million people , a crooked and broken police force and messed up justice system that is completely back logged.
Surely over the last 20 years of ANC rule they could have improved the force and increased the states forensic departments,
We should have 100's of  forensic students already qualified and 10 laboratories opened , DNA testing should take 2 weeks , not 2 years!
10 more jails should have been built,
Lawyers and Judges should  not be wasting time on  ministers, We need separate courts for them, because they back log our courts.
It is just amazing to recognize how backwards we have gone..
SA needs change and we need to dig our heels in now or never.
I can only pray that any cheating at the polls get revealed quickly,
I pray ANC drops by at least 15 % , 
I pray more that among the challenges ahead, The media wakes up,
That journalists wake up, 
their powers of existence is to give stage to the right conversations,
The media and their useless run of Journalists ( Most of them) are unable to create news, they rather run after blabbering Malema that is causing hate and discontent among people .
Why do the media not take more initiative, 
Stage meetings inviting all parties together, where we can start working together,
If the Pedi illiterate is  in the very same meeting then so be it,
It is time the grand standing stopped, It is fueled only by the media and individuals that lack understanding, I insist on my view point.

Media doesn't have to wait for a trigger happy fool to make news!
we do not live on bad news as their theories tell them,
The new age is purely an ANC propagated arm and it disgusts me how the SABC pretends that it is an objective stage,
Which Journalist has managed a 1 on 1 with Zuma and Zille ?
Or Zuma and Malema ?
We need the right kind of interaction in SA,
We not getting it and we not getting each other,
I call in Journalists to wake up,
Real news is good news and good news comes from the right conversations,
We need dialogue in SA, 
If I hear somebody blaming apartheid again I will strangle him,
