Have respect in land issues

2018-05-22 06:00

The violent land grabs are really alarming – because so many innocent people get hurt and properties damaged.

While I have sympathy with people who don’t have houses, I feel it’s wrong to attack innocent people and their property.

I feel that’s where politicians should play a bigger role. Don’t say what people want to hear when you know it’s not possible.

If you say “land will be taken without compensation” please explain what you mean by saying that. Whose land will be taken, and to whom will the land be given, to do what with?

Also teach people to respect others and their property that they worked hard for.

Nothing in life is free, and if you work for something, you appreciate it more.

We need more role models.
