A letter to the president on the children of SA

07 September 2018, 16:29

The children of the nation are no longer the children of our Nation, they have fallen prey to child traffickers, rapists, murders, abusers and molesters. Our country is getting sicker by the day and there seems no hope in sight. Is our President blind to what is happening? Does the Government even care?? I think not.

I think, undoubtedly that the DEATH PENALTY be brought back. "We" are so quick to call people out on racist remarks that "we" vandalize shops and burn buildings... yet our children go missing everyday, raped, killed and abused... yet the guilty is set free with minimal bail amounts to go back into our society and repeat their behavior.

I am begging you, Mr President, to DO SOMETHING! Our country and our children are fading away... our education and our morals have filtered away to allow such injustices to occur. Yet, "we" do nothing. All we do is allow for the criminals to rule, looters to loot, rapists to rape and murderers to murder.... when will South Africa be safe again? This I ask you, Mr President of South Africa.

I wonder how you would feel if your child went missing and was found dead somewhere... would that change your views and warrant the death penalty?? This I ask you, Mr President of South Africa.

I wonder how  you would feel if you were hijacked or shot outside your home... would this make you change laws and instill harsher punishment or criminals?? This I ask you, Mr President of South Africa.

We suffer, our children suffer, our educations suffers, our women suffer... yet nothing has changed.
