The game of politics is not fair

2016-07-06 06:00

THIS is an open letter to Vusi Tshabalala, the executive mayor of the Maluti-a-Phofung Local Municipality.

I thought apartheid had ended in 1994.

Why do you play with our grandparents? Some of them are living alone. How do you expect them to run after the water trucks?

They voted for you because they trusted you with their health and safety in the community.

Not because they wanted you to have fun with the government money at the Durban July, or to give away important tenders to people that you know.

I am referring to those who do not even know you or their jobs.

I understand we have water problems, but what I know is that politics are playing a role in this.

The water trucks come once a week. How do you expect the community to survive?

They come during the week while some people are still at work.

Is this the democracy you are busy promoting in manifestos? Where is Ubuntu?

How can you be so selfish and only think about you and your family? Why must you be so greedy? How can you turn a blind eye to our community’s sufferings, while you are able to help?

Is this how you want to be treated when your are old or when you are no longer in power?

Wait, do not answer because I know it will not be easy for you. Not that we want the party to investigate you, we just want you to think like a human being and think about others.

For now, I will stop with my questions so that I can give you time to repent from your wrong-doings and to think about Ubuntu.
