Leave the minorities

2016-01-20 06:00

WE are all aware of the pressure our president is under, and of course, we all trust he gets good advice.

Most of us are horrified at the huge shortfall in our next budget, but well done to him for securing more funds for the restless students.

A word of caution as the ANC dredges for votes - we ask with respect that he please leave the minorities alone as they pay a huge amount of tax.

Of course, a sure way to win votes is by picking on these productive people, some of whom were arrested by the old security police, as I was many times.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
