No feelings for those they disable

19 December 2011, 11:19
The family of Thomas Ferreira, left in a coma by the MEC for Housing in Gauteng, whose office promised the family that they would cover all financial costs, remain devastated by the bills they are left with, which remain unpaid by the MEC or his department. It is clear that they only way they are going to get the financial assistance promised is by suing the government through Legal Aid.
 
Two policeman from the Johannesburg Metro Police Department robbed a disabled man of a R1 500 tip that he was given by a kind stranger yet there are no reports of action taken again the policeman or whether or not the department has reimbursed Mr. Issa for the money they stole. Did the SAPS finally open a case against the perpetrators seeing as both Douglasdale and Diepkloof police stations refused to open cases at his request?
 
Whether the government are responsible for disabling someone or a disabled person has their belongings stolen by government workers is ierrelevant; the relevancy is that harm is being done to citizens who are either made vulnerable or are already vulnerable. Why on earth have a government department which incorporates the disabled when the Minister hasn't even spoken up on either cases? What has she done to ensure that these two people are treated fairly?
 
There is less and less reason to vote for the ANC as they gear up for their R100 million party leaving the vulnerable cast aside because it doesn't fit into their programme. The sooner people see the ruling party for what they really are the sooner we can get a party in who works for the people and not one who relies on the people for their tax money to use and abuse.
