When will they ever learn?

2018-01-25 06:00

FROM May 2017, an education department spokesman frequently reminded parents to register their children at schools for 2018. It is apparent that South Africans fail to heed any instructions. Hence the turmoil at the beginning of the 2018 school year, compelling schools to remain closed and to dispatch teachers from one school to another, to adequately cater for enrolment numbers.

Scheduled ANC meetings are delayed by many hours. Even the president lacks punctuality. For a government to succeed and its people to flourish economically self-discipline/ restraint, rules and laws must be acknowledged. A person must accept responsibility. When will the ANC and its supporters cease attributing blame to others and apply themselves conscientiously to working, by adopting a strong work ethic, rather than amassing “ill-gotten gains” through rampant corruption and nepotism.

When will the people learn that the ANC will always remain corrupt.

“Can the leopard change its spots or the Ethiopian his skin?” (Jeremiah 13:23).

South Africans should also practise restraint to reduce the unrealistic increase in population, in a bid to reduce poverty.

Our economy has dropped to “rock-bottom” with a non-functional, bankrupted infrastructure - banks, education, electricity, water, roads, etc., too numerous to enumerate. The ANC top brass attend lavish celebrations, to what avail? The only organisations, which are daily employed, are the law courts, focusing on the astronomically increasing law suits.
