On moral and ethical actions that President Ramaphosa needs to implement

Dear Editor,

Animal protection societies, which rescue abused animals, advocate that families, unable to afford the food costs for animals, should refrain from keeping pets. In accordance with my culture, one must feed pets prior to dining.

At dawn, enterprising, hungry cattle in Gamalakhe leave home to scrounge grazing grass on pavements, returning at dusk.

Locals are still conducting ritual killings, torturing the sacrificial animal to death, in a bid to appease their ancestors — illustrating abhorrent practices, inculcated in their culture.

A former South African President compelled minority groups to absorb others so as to experience violent and serious crimes prevalent in rural areas.

Who were/are the perpetrators?

Our esteemed first man, the president, categorically denies the murder of white farmers since the New Dispensation of 1994, claiming that all cultures have been equally subjected to violent and serious crimes.

Deliberately circumventing the truth, he failed to identify the perpetrators of all these dastardly crimes.

A Google site, Fact, which published crime/murder statistics, has been “conveniently” removed — another ploy to withhold damning information by censoring the media. Not all information can be erased.

These horrific murders of forcing parents to witness their babies cast into boiling water, prior to their brutal torturous death, have not only been published, but imprinted on one’s memory.

No doubt Ramaphosa will remove an access site, providing information of his personal wealth, indicated in two amounts of more than $500 million and $700 million respectively. The New Dispensation severely condemned the lack of opportunities for non-whites during the Apartheid era.

Consequently, deprived of opportunities, how could Ramaphosa and numerous ANC members have amassed such incredible wealth within less than a quarter century?

During the Marikane uprising, Ramaphosa allegedly supported the police by denouncing the miners’ violence.

When the police minister was obliged to resign, Ramaphosa, employing a tactical move to “save his skin” and to protect his mining shares, sympathised with the rioting miners.

Instead of being rewarded, farmers are being disadvantaged for their work ethic and economic contribution.

The government is focusing on “stealing” farms from rightful owners, although sufficient tracts of vacant, arable government land could be provided to aspiring black farmers.

The Constitution guarantees the right of safety. Everyone who has suffered the loss of a family member (owing to the government’s lack of unwillingness and inability to control violent and serious crime) should demand compensation from the state.

For South Africa to gain recognition, confidence and to secure aid/finance from the powers, the president should undertake moral and ethical actions.
