Today is a sad day for South Africa. This country has reached the point of non-return and will finally tumble over into the precipice of no return. Our Jerusalem is in rack and ruin with no chance of a future. Rather a future like Mali and Zimbabwe.
What type of human beings could, in open view of a mob screaming for blood, actually tie another human being behind a police vehicle and allow that person to eventually die in the most agonising way.
These people are the police which have also thrown down the shackles of human rights to feed their own sense of power over the nation. These are the people who can only subsist on the dole which the taxpayer makes available and without that they will end up in the streets as criminals. These are the people trusted with the lives and safety of the citizenry of this nation but only look to their own pocket and to fill them as rapidly as possible.
We as South Africans have seen this criminality on a daily basis, we have become used to it and look the other way. Looking away lessens the pain and causes temporary blindness. We have to live too. The death sentence knelled at the taxi on the wrong side of the road. Where will it all end? Where will the wisdom come from?
Jesus wept when he entered Jerusalem, Now so do I and many other south Africans.
