Free to pee anywhere

05 May 2014, 20:00

In South Africa we have 30 demonstrations a day against poor service delivery, incompetence and corruption against elected officials but that’s unlikely to significantly decrease the ANC’s lead – in fact, it would be a major victory for anti-corruption forces if the ANC gets below 60% in this election, just to wake them up a bit - South Africans vote like they’re following their favourite soccer or rugby team – the kind of loyalty one would only find in one of our canine friends.

To remain loyal to a sports team is understandable, all you expect from them is pride when they win but you’d be twice fooled if you follow a political party like you follow Kaizer Chiefs, Blue Bulls or Orlando Pirates, these guys are supposed to be using our money in order for us to all live better.

Did anyone else also notice how quickly the ANC acted against that Indian guy who said Indians who are not supporting ANC must return to India?.. it goes to show that at least one person at Luthuli House is still awake, the rest seem to be paying more attention to the swelling bank balance of that scheme known as ‘Luthuli House Investment Company’- please take note dear reader: the word ‘investment’ is used very loosely here .. …….it begs the question, Why are they afraid to act against their Number One?

Anyway, Never before have politicians’ had so much time for us, bus companies are doing a roaring trade, t-shirt makers too and I have it on good authority that had you booed Zuma at FNB stadium, you would have needed some medical attention - if there’s any organization with more than its fair share of hooligans, well, you know…  how long will it take before ANC supporters finally realize that it’s Not the ANC’s money but Taxpayers money that pays their social grants, that pays their kids child support – with the E-toll scheme, fracking, high petrol prices, high rates and taxes, poor to non-existent services and a bunch of lazy public servants, you Have to ask yourself: how long will it take before the rich balk and refuse to be donkeys and forced donors to people unashamedly crooked to the bone? 

The thing keeping South Africa’s wheels turning are the millions of honest citizens who wake up each morning to put in an honest day’s work, these are the people keeping the engine running, most of our people are hard-working and professional and deserve much more than the DA and the ANC are capable of producing in their current form(neither party is talking about changing radically to meet our current demands)– look at Telkom, Eskom, SABC, SAA wherever our government has a peep in, problems are guaranteed, there’ll be standard-two dropouts in key positions, or people with nothing more than beauty therapy certificates, no accountability, no shame, not a care in the world…

God Bless the Egyptians who knew exactly how a shoddy Government ought to be handled.

The DA on the other hand, promises little or nothing, if that’s not equally pathetic I don’t know - with the DA its Always about what they Don’t want you to talk about - land and economic reform is their wooden stake.

It’s ironic that Malema is the only person (as he claims) who will force politicians to buy their own houses with the thick salaries we pay them – the Sankaran method for Malema says he, where all his MP’s will travel via public transport and make use of public hospitals like Baragwaneth, (or travel with their own cars, and pay for their own hotels and school fees),

No blue-light nonsense for lazy fools to get from one party to the other according to the Commander in Chief. Nkandla will be turned into an amusement park or a museum, a decision he will most likely make closer to the time (I’m rooting for the amusement park idea)..

I like this guy and we need more people like him but whether or not he is being honest and sincere is a totally different matter, that’s another story altogether (which needs several blog posts to analyse).

‘What are you doing?!”I shouted, quite alarmed that some random guy coming out of a tavern had whipped his thing out and had started peeing right there on the main road, “It’s a free country” came the reply, explains it all, we’re free to pee anywhere but we’re stuck with a non-performing, liability of a government, that’s the reality of the matter.
