Ruling party supporters seek to destabilise country

2016-03-17 06:00

LEADERS and members of the revolutionary ANC sought to destabilise the country in their bid to acquire the vote. Now ANC supporters, who enjoy the democratic right to vote, are seeking to destabilise the country, by preventing citizens to register to vote. Instead of using the democratic structures of the country to seek a good governance party, they prefer to embark upon a path of destruction.

Students clamour for free university education, which they have to acquire together with the destruction of university property - of buildings, books and equipment. It is evident that they have no desire to read for any degrees, as these centre of learning have to be forced to close. Police have been forced to fire rubber bullets in an endeavour to protect the universities. Now the students claim that the police are using excessive violence. It is apparent that the students are seeking to raze the universities to rubble - to what avail? Note also, that the schools lack basic discipline.

In accordance with the ANC goals, the ends justify the means, embracing a culture of violence, which is now prevalent in South Africa. According to the idiom “the apple never falls far from the tree”, the youth learn by example, being a reflection of their parents’ behaviour. One reads of the numerous murders by fellow pupils at schools. This is the imitating of the violence perpetrated by the older generation, of serious and violent crimes on law abiding citizens, in their homes and in their vehicles.

Stellenbosch University now has a culture of rape. Who are the perpetrators?

Why is there no universal judicial system throughout the country as regards the years sentencing of murderers? One serves seven months, another more than 20 years and a police woman, who murdered three family members, is sentenced to 15 years, may be paroled after seven years for good behaviour. Chris Hani’s murderer has served more than 21 years. Is the sentence heavier for a white murderer on a black? Are white farmers of no consequence? How can a suspect of an aggravating crime (of serious violent crimes) be granted bail? How will prisons cope with an influx of offenders, sentenced to two years, for urinating in public?

After using my internet for less than an hour, two gigs of data “disappeared”. MTN, my service provider, insisted that I used the gigs. (I browsed through a site for economic bed and breakfasts and read my eight short emails). How can I acknowledge that the internet is providing me with an advanced service? If I had documented my information and filed it, I would have access to it in my files.
