I have been thinking about writing this for some time now but I always seem to go against what I believe and stop writing. But after the latest statement from COSATU I had to write this.
It may not have much to do with the statement they made about the DA starting the violence the protest or maybe it has everything to do with it.
You see, I am sick and tired of hearing Black people in government blame white people for everything. No Jobs, No food, no land and its all white peoples fault!!!!!
NO!!!!!!! It isn't it is actually black peoples fault, well black people that are in power namely the ANC! The big reason that there are less black people in jobs is because the government has completely let the public down. Education in the majority of South Africa is a joke, and yet nothing is done about it. R210 000 000.00 spent on flight for 2 people in the ANC our so called president and vice president. this makes my blood boil!!!!!!!!!!! That money could be used to educate hundreds of people PROPERLY.
When I was in school, a very good government school. About 30% of my class mates where black and from townships and areas I hadn't even heard of. But that made no difference, we were all friends (and still are 12 years on), we all worked hard (well some of us) and we all played sport together. All of these black students with me that worked hard and passed are now in high powered jobs (and the deserve it) and making good money and trying to get further ahead in life. They don't ask for any hand outs and they understand the value of hard work. Yes, I agree, they had a good start in life because they had a good education but that is exactly what I am saying, get an education and you will find work.
The problem is, and I will say it again, is our greedy, useless government, unions and other money hungry people.
COSATU!!!!!!!! Instead of wasting money on court cases and lies why don't you take some of your millions that you basically steal from people who aren't educated and give money to you because you lie to them and say you have their best interests at heart and start schools and build education facilities for these people who pay your salaries??? Instead of strikes get companies to give staff time off to learn and better themselves.
ANC, stop wasting money on court cases, flights and fake tenders and actually build proper training facilities for teachers and for students.
Evreything that is wrong with this country is from the top. The real RACISTS because they actually don't care about anyone black or white all they care about is money and power.
I say down with COSATU stop asting money on these fools and give it someone that is going to actually help you. Better yet, keep the money and use it to send your children to school.
Bring back education and this country will never look back!
