What if the poor was your responsibility ?

24 March 2014, 10:12
To be the president of any country must be a major responsibility.
We not talking about a couple of dozen people here. We referring to a near 250 000 matriculates each and every year. Their families, mostly poor and reliant on their children finding work and succeeding.
Apparently we have 2500 informal settlements, How accurate that is I do not know.
We must consider the im pact of 15 Million grants. And then we must know the reality that that money is not enough to sustain any family, even if you only eat pap.
One thing for certain. If I was president. I would have taken a different approach.
For starters, I would thank the existing tax payers for their contributions. I would notice the amount of giving that SA do.
I would befriend my citizens. I would protect them. I would make sure that they know, I am looking after them.
Instead, we have lost millions of wealthy, smart and good people. People that could not find it in them to Trust the current regime.
Each family that has left, could have easily have paid for another grant, or contributed to a bigger annual income for the country.
The engineers we lost, and then to calculate what the ANC has spent on international engineers to do their work ? That alone must be a ridiculously large figure .
Why chase brains away, why chase investment away, It surely does not sustain us all, There are no more than  to 4 million whites in SA. 
The coloured people in SA are to be admired. It is their vote for the DA that kept the western Cape out of the ANC thieving hands.
I do not believe we have less than 2 million Indian folk, They too are to be admired. They are working and contributing to our society. Their vote was mostly ANC previously but I am certain to believe many more would rather vote DA than ANC.
Of our black locals, There are astonishing amounts of purely good people. The working class has been lifted. But there has been a unrealistic push of people into places they do not belong. 
SA has a leader that cannot father his children as he should.
One must crawl before you walk, And walk before you run.
There is no quick fix in regaining the dignity lost over years of separation. Separation is what hurt the black man in SA. The lack of education made him vulnerable.
The black working class can only grow if we are to grow our economy.
Taking the white man's Job gives you 5 Million Jobs only, and then what? what about the other 45 Million ?
Let us grow SA people, That is only way to help the poor.
The time we spent promising houses, we could have spent creating a new industry or business in SA, Or at the very least worked on a new incentive.Working together, You get more to work with and more done.
We need to change our approach, Doing the same things and voicing the same speeches has not helped.
Come on SA, I wish to write about better things in the future, But we need remedy, 
We need to engage at a deeper level with opposition.
Tough Job, But we need change, 
Why don't we do our own Tahir square now, Why wait ?
Can we leave the ANC to carry on this way ?

Be careful what you wish for

In a country that was formed out of protest action, mobilised by great demonstrations and inspired by immense speeches, why are we so seemingly desperate to give it all up again? Read more...

Is Zuma really to blame?

President Jacob Zuma’s efforts to avoid his day in court and avoid a state capture commission of enquiry, suggests that the accusations made are not without foundation. Is the responsibility for the situation solely that of Jacob Zuma? Read more...

Throughout the decades, and even in South Africa, this reference to the commanding heights became almost synonymous with the socialist and populist project. I think I have even heard Malema on occasion referring to the need to get control of the “heights”. Read more...

Although it is human nature to remember the good someone did after their death, you would expect world leaders to say something about Castro killing an estimated 100 000 of his citizens during his 60 year reign of terror.  Read more...
