Logic, according to the ANC

2015-08-13 06:00

The ANC government wants to implement a law, whereby women labourers acquire a minimum of one hectare per person. A farmer has four hectares of land, thus after observing the law he owns nothing.

Labourers have to be paid a minimal wage and as a result of adverse weather conditions and a weak economic climate a farmer maybe unable to fulfil this obligation. The farmer would be obliged to dismiss his workers but, according to labour law, one cannot dismiss a labourer.

The Trade Union leaders encouraged miners to strike, and in addition strikers are starving and bankrupt.

Meanwhile leaders are being paid high salaries. As a result the mines have been forced to close, but the ANC government wants the mines to retain the employees.

Even a five-year-old realises that no company can run at a loss.

Harmony Mines, the owners and members from our beloved Mandela family and our president’s family have either failed to pay the miners or offer the lowest mine wages. These prominent families’ members in their speeches promote employment and improvement of the conditions of the poor.

Our president attributed failure to improve the poor economic conditions to the apartheid regime. Other races which suffered discrimination - the Chinese, the coloured­ people and Indians (Muslims and Hindu) have made notable achievements. Instead of rioting, striking, protesting, looting and rampaging these groups, they should exercise self-discipline and focus on education and culture.

They should be studying, praying and performing charitable deeds. All owners of swimming pools can provide a security service to the municipality by offering to douse municipal fires.
