Limpopo

31 July 2012, 11:09

Well, good people, I thought it time for  a change in direction! Time for me to either bore or entertain you; it depends on your preference. We can never say we live in a boring country, that’s for sure! Although I’m sure many of the people of this fair country would settle for a bit of good, old-fashioned boredom.

In a time in our fair country

In the area Limpopo

Lay the textbooks scattered wildly

Making stink that looks like cocoa

Angie said that she knew nothing

Of the scandal of the textbooks

She would launch investigations

And would nail the nasty book crooks

Fingers pointing every which way

But the strangest thing to see

Was that Angie said, ‘Now look here,

Why you pointing back at me?’

It would seem that all the money

For delivery of textbooks

Was in fact spent on her parties

Where she entertained the book crooks

So then if you go to school there

And your classroom is all book-free

Then you know you can thank Angie

Cause you know she set the crook free

If you go down to the river

You can study and you’ll see

That the fishes swim in schools

And so their textbooks are for free.

Of course, it’s not really funny, but we can’t change it by crying about it, can we? Or to paraphrase Charles Dickens, ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was a waste of time.’

I believe that this country will improve, because the underlying principles of this country are still sound. Every time I see a court victory against the government, I breathe a sigh of relief. The government may not be great, but they still practise Constitutional Democracy.

And financially we’re sound, even if our international rating has fallen.

Speak to anyone who travels frequently, and you’ll see how much more the Rand buys in South Africa, than most currencies do in their respective countries. And because interest rates are still relatively high, we get good returns on our investments which, if you’re planning to live and eventually retire in South Africa, is hugely important.

The grass looks infinitely greener in many other places, and in some respects it is, but the greenery comes at a high price. Anyone who has just completed their tax return via e-filing can attest to how well the financial sector in our country works.

So all I can say is: Viva DA, Viva!
