Letter to Mr President

08 February 2013, 15:04

Attention: Mr President

May I take the liberty of inquiring at what stage people should apply for political asylum elsewhere?

Should they wait till the exchange rate is utterly untenable to contemplate emigration?

Or possibly when their burglar bars, remote controls, razor wire, watch dogs and other security options have been stolen, which they can’t afford to replace?

Should they wait until their jobs have been taken and they are too old to beg ?

Should they wait till there is no more pension money in the kitty ?

Or what about till the exam pass rate is dropped to 25% leading to the standard of education being the laughing stock  of global education, rendering their children a Mickey mouse qualification and no credibility to pursue tertiary opportunities out of the country?

What about waiting until the government officials have acquired so many BMWs from the tax man’s almost empty coffers, so that more public hospitals have to be closed down as the money that grows on trees has amazingly become depleted?

Or maybe when International Antiretroviral funding stops, so that if one is ill one simply can’t get medical support, as the system is groaning and under tremendous threat ?

Or maybe when the potholes are so enormous that one’s car gets swallowed in a ‘gat’ and one can’t get out and about by public transport as its non existent?

Or possibly when one simply can’t afford a body guard?

 Just asking.

 I await your response.

 Evita
