Health officials from the City of Cape Town and Western Cape Government are trying to gain entry into the Central Methodist Church in the CBD where foreign nationals are being accommodated following reports of an outbreak of chicken pox.
In Paris, in front of the SA embassy, there are members of the LDNA (Ligue de défense noire africaine) calling on blacks in South Africa to kill whites, Chinese and Indians rather than their “black brothers”. Members of the organization or black bystanders clap hands.
It is disturbing to realise that recently another enormous lifeline was quietly given to SA Express while all the attention was on Eskom, the SAA and the SABC. According to the Free Market Foundation, SA Express received a lifeline of R1,24 billion from the government in November last year and was now given government guaranteed financing amounting to R300 million.
It seems that the Free Market Foundation forced SA Express by means of the Promotion of Access to Information Act to disclose its financial statements and managerial account data.
SA Express has become a large hole draining tax money from the fiscus dam and if it continues in this way, it will drain everything until there is nothing left. The ANC will have to realise at some point that the country does not have an inexhaustible source of money and that public enterprises cannot be saved from financial ruin indefinitely.
There were 39 farm attacks, 4 farm murders and 4 farm attacks were averted in South Africa during July 2019. During June 2019, there were 34 arm attacks and 6 farm murders and for the period 1 January to 31 May 2019 there were 184 farm attacks and 20 farm murders in the country.
On 4 June 2019, Ian cameron said “There is a double standard when coming to the handling of this sort of cases. We encourage everybody to get involved in a safety structure. Statistics show farm murders not socioeconomically motivated, AfriForum’s data indicates that the farm attackers do not always loot money, but people were badly hurt.
With 4500 civil claims against the police in Gauteng, 139 lost service weapons and only 38% of police officials who passed their shooting competency tests, the people of Gauteng cannot trust or take the Department for Community Safety seriously.
South Africa and Gauteng are on fire. The reasons for this are infinite and call for a debate on its own. The budget allocated to the Gauteng Department for Community Safety means nothing if the officials are incompetent and if the structures are riddled with corruption.
Illegal land grabs and farm attacks are on the rise in Gauteng and the ANC government cannot offer any solutions. In Lenasia and Hekpoort, innocent people have landed in the crossfire because the ANC made opportunist yet empty promises.
