Our government seems to be turning a blind eye on crucial issues in the country. These are not minor issues, but issues that will, in the long run, have harmful effects on the growth of our country.
Our big cities like Johannesburg and Pretoria are facing a huge problem of unregistered colleges that freely rob our dear brothers and sisters of their parents' hard-earned money.
It may be easy for the government to warn young people to check if the colleges are genuine before they register, but is the government itself doing enough to address this issue?
Every day, you see pamphlets and adverts on the street poles guaranteeing “safe and pain-free abortion” to our desperate sisters who would do anything to get rid of their unwanted pregnancy.
I don't want to sound xenophobic but truth is these illegal clinics are mainly run by bogus doctors from outside South Africa, who do not even have a medical qualification. How I wish the police could take those phone numbers on the pamphlets and call those 'clinics' to find their location.
On the other hand, the efforts of our musicians and other artists end up in vain because there are people who sell fake CDs and DVDs on the streets.
The government should come up with tough measures to address these issues. We've had enough of people robbing others of their hard-earned cash.
How are we going to develop as a country if nobody seems to care? Shouldn't we be having a special police unit that focuses on cracking down on these illegal practices and save our country from decay? The government must wake up and smell the coffee.
