South Africa/ Where is it going to end?

23 December 2013, 10:58


South Africa/ Where is it going to end???

I actually don’t know how to begin and I am sure I wont know how to end but at least I’m going to try,  maybe right or wrong.

As far as I’m concerned “we” and not “me” live in the most beautiful country in the world.  Every normal persons dream.  Reality check; beautiful from the outside but rather brittle from the inside.

Crime is our number 1 employment package. Our minister of police rightly said yesterday Gauteng in not gangsters paradise.  Oh so true he forgot to say South Africa is a gangsters paradise.  He prides himself in an arrest of a foreign national that has no impact on the life of an ordinary law abiding South African citizen.  That’s also about the only times I hear of the top brass when high flyers get arrested.  Sadly he forgot that there are in excess of 50 million normal citizens in this country who are all in need of a normal living and it is just not happening.  It seems as long as he can wear his designer clothes and sunglasses and earn a huge salary that’s far beyond normal people he is a happy chappy.  To top it all he might just be safeguarding the company that his wife owns as a director that received a major tender who knows?  As far as the commissioner of police goes there is nothing to say.  NO POLICE EXPERIENCE.  It’s like taking a normal person of the street and tell him from today on you will be a heart surgeon, shocking.  Is this what the people of the ANC voted for???


It is shocking to see how most of the people in South African homes have to”not want to live in shacks/no water/no electricity and no food.  I wonder and I doubt it whether any of our ministers endure any of above since 1994.  Answer is no luxury cars/ houses order of the day.  I am afraid to say the situation is not going to be any better. People our money is spent on a priceless few.  Any solutions???


Foreign nationals legal and illegal are all over and whatever the circumstances taking the jobs that our local people should be doing after all they also get grants for their kids from SASSA.

People we could carry on about the issues forever and ever.  I cannot see light at  the end of the tunnel, can you?
