Why only target Africans?

2011-11-15 09:29

I find it very strange and very ­annoying that every transaction of an African is put on the front pages of our white-controlled newspapers.

Take David Mabilu’s tenders – there they are, on the front page for everyone to see. Roux Shabangu’s leases with government – all there for every Tom, Dick and Harry to see.

Why don’t these honourable journalists and their editors list everyone in their newspapers who does business with government?

Is doing business with government only right for a section of South Africans and very wrong for “blacks”?

Wilson Bayly Holmes-Ovcon (WBHO) is doing billions of rands worth of government jobs, yet
nobody says a thing about that.

Whites and Indians are getting billions of rands on properties rented to government and again no one says anything.

Are so-called “blacks” not South African? Are they not supposed to benefit from the available government tenders?

Maybe the main fight is not about these tenders, but the true ownership of the country “South Africa” or the “cardinal point” name “South of Africa”. Maybe we should let them keep the name and we reclaim our country.

Each time a “black” has money, someone questions the manner in which he or she acquired it.

Why do they do it to us? Don’t we deserve good things even when we have worked hard for them?

A former president once said: “If you are black, you are considered as corrupt.” Why?

Let us so-called “blacks” find a way of exposing and shaming all white people doing business with government.

It is not the manner of how you do business with government that concerns these newspapers, it is the race of a person that is targeted.

Take Mabilu’s case: City Press says he is doing quality work. Why then is he splashed on the front page with all the tender moneys

exposed as if all that money went into his pocket? We all know he got a very small percentage of the
tender price, yet we are given the impression that all these millions went to him.

Africans should continue fighting for the emancipation of the so- called “black or non-white” population – both from mental and economic slavery.
