I am amazed at how unrealistic and pathetic all the political parties and individuals have been so far with their political and manipulative games.
Fact cops and innocents were killed while trying to resolve and contain the situation.
Fact there were 3000+ armed individuals charging at and attacking the police with intent to do grievous bodily harm and to kill. The police who retaliated with the necessary force to contain the situation before they themselves became another casualty.
Fact the police need better training because 300+ rounds only hit 34 attackers. ( AIM BOYS AIM take your time breath out and then pull the trigger)
Fact as long as S.A plays the blame game instead of being realistic and honest regardless of the situation and circumstances it does not matter who is in power S.A is in serious trouble.
Fact there are better ways to negotiate a better salary or working conditions if you are not happy with what you earn or how the company treats you.
Fact the POLICE did nothing wrong the 3000+ miners brought all this on themselves. It’s a sad fact but it’s the truth.
Fact not everyone get paid the same in a company some get more than other so don’t expect the same as someone else. But yes negotiate for a realistic fair wage for the work you do. Not everyone will live in a mansion and drive a BMW.
Fact only you are responsible for you own actions. You are not entitled to any thing in life you have to earn it. And you have to work for it you are responsible for bettering yourself. Many people who have had nothing have worked in the worst jobs in the world they have saved and they have gone on courses learnt a trade etc. so where there is a will there is a way.
Fact don’t believe any political party when they promise you something if you get it you are lucky! But 99% of the time you won’t.
Fact all political parties lie and make promises they cannot keep. But some are more accountable and realistic than others. And some will even steal less than our current government and when theft or maladministration occurs they will be open transparent and take the relevant and correct action no matter if it’s a popular decision or not.
Fact as long as S.A and the people of S.A keep lying to themselves and living in lala land nothing will change.
Hold corrupt politicians / police / business people etc. … accountable. If they steal take everything away from them and make them pay it back. Let those in power know that you want real things for you and your children. EG a safe environment real education so everyone has a future.
Catch a wake up S.A be realistic stop the BS and all the blame games it’s sickening! And sadly unless we start sorting ourselves out as a country we will only land up on the road to HELL!
S.A has so much to offer we have resources that are being squandered. We have minerals that the whole world wants we have some of the most fertile farmlands that are wrecked due to political games and the so called entitled. That’s why we import food from places like the USA and Europe and that why things that should be cheap cost more than they should.
Fact don’t lose sight of the real and important things while all the manipulative and inept politicians play the shiny game to distract you!
