Semi-retired, ex-construction man

I must take issue with Lauren Veckranges and her article about voting for the EFF, come the next national elections.

Since you came to power 20 years ago you have renamed so many things that I don’t even know my own country anymore.

Neither Jacob Zuma nor the ANC care about the country, or its future, and they care not one iota for any of us.

I think it has become clear these past few days that we are in dire straits, perilously close to being labelled another failed African state, and we need to take stock of what is happening to this country of ours.

Dear Madame the Speaker, Baleka Mbete, yesterday you stated that the cell phone problem at SONA 2015 was a “glitch”.

I cannot even remember why Thabo Mbeki was ousted, think it was a combination of his AIDS denials and a palace revolution by the ANC youth, led funnily enough by Julius Malema and Zuma himself. Isn’t life strange?

Dear Presidency, here are a couple of free pointers for you when thinking of making statements, especially to the public whom you believe all to be stupid ignoramuses.

Simply put, the Black birth rate is increasing fast – steadily - that of Coloureds is decreasing slowly, that of Asians decreased between 1990 and 2005 but is now increasing slightly again and the White birth rate is declining rapidly.

I have a couple of suggestions for President Zuma’s State of the Nation address...
