Is it worth it South Africans?

09 April 2014, 21:00

IS it worth it South Africans

The amount spent by the South African government to get a criminal into the country raises a lot of questions. From a South African citizen point of view, it’s too much. The question is it worth the cause?

It took the state almost three years to get this criminal into the country. There was  a doctor, a nurse and an SAPS member on the chartered plane which costs me SA citizen close to R3million.Maybe it’s a norm that where there is criminal we need from outside the country, we hire a plane to get the criminal. There are people who go to bed with empty stomach, not that they must not help themselves get out of the situation but to spend such an amount of money to get this criminal, maybe it’s because he is from England am not a security expert, the guy did not kill, but was involved in planning the murder for reasons I don’t know. But to give a suspected criminal this VIP status is out of question, that means even if he can be found guilty, he will receive preferential treatment. To those who planned the whole thing, this is totally unacceptable; something must be done to prevent something like this happening again.

On a different topic ,but nearly the same as the above, is the municipal service delivery protests that always go with violence most of the time.I know we normally protest for the state to listen to our demands, we have to protest, these protests sometimes leads to some roads being closed, that is fine as long they are violence free.

The most disturbing part is to  see  my money being burnt into ashes.You ask yourself as to why people burn police stations,clinics,schools,municipal offices and community halls when toytoying,maybe it’s a cultural issue based on our historical background during apartheid.I apologise for saying it’s my money, to those who will feel vindicated, but the reality is ,I am a working SA,I pay 18% tax every month on my salary, again 38% on my bonus payment goes to the tax ,maybe I am being selfish. Again poor councillors are also caught in the act, some of  them got elected while they already have this property that is being burnt ,I hope I will never be a councillor. Poor foreign shop nationals are also victims to this vandalism.

Come on good SA, we can do better than this, let’s educate each other. The struggle for service delivery and fight against corruption is worth more than destroying what has already been built. South Africa sometimes turns to be dependent on the state to do everything for them, why? Most of the people who own small businesses on the streets, saloons are mostly foreigners; we turn to depend on being employed most of the time. Even a young child know that for your business to succeed you must get tenders, and to get a tender, you must be corrupt, what type of a generation are we building.
