So some appreciation

18 July 2014, 09:31

It is the 67-minute Nelson Mandela day thing again and here is my suggestion for this Friday.  A minority of people pay most of the income tax and already sacrifice between three and four months of the year working for the government, supporting the poor and financing the country’s infrastructure.

Sixteen million people receive social grants and more than half the population don’t pay income tax which means they don’t contribute much to build South Africa. 

Let’s give the rich taxpayer a break from the Nelson Mandela 67-minute charity and show our appreciation for everything the rich have done for you and the country this year.  The highways they financed and the e-tolls they pay on your behalf, the schools and hospitals they built for you, the free housing, water and electricity, the text books which were dumped in the bush last year in Limpopo and the free Wi-Fi you will have in Cape Town and Pretoria in the near future, the presidents luxurious house and his annual income of R100 million cost-to-tax-payer.  They even let the miners take a five-month vacation and a huge salary increase the beginning of the year without expecting anything in return, not even improved productivity.

So to all the receivers of social grants, the poor and those South Africans that do not pay income tax, members of AMCU and COSATU, and members of parliament, get out there and show your appreciation for what the rich tax payers have done for you this year and spend only 67 minutes to help the ill, sweep the streets, pick up the rubbish in the parks, the veld and the streets, remove graffiti from the walls, bridges and buildings, weed the pavements and use a condom when you have sex.

Remember the rich works for you three to four months a year the least you can do is spend only 67 minutes once a year and do something for this country as well.
