Gupta be Gone!

20 May

This country is in the toilet!

Front page news about the illegal landing of the aircraft…

As a working class South African I have to say ‘ who gives a damn!’

Not us, we’re working our fingers to the bone to survive in an economy that’s out of control.

Somewhere along the line one politician decided to whine about the Gupta’s wedding arrangements and now it’s a huge issue pursued rabidly from all sides including the President’s office.

The time and money spent on conferences, newsreels and meetings about this ‘horrendous’ situation could probably have provided school feeding or teachers salaries or transport to any of a thousand rural villages for more than a month of Sundays!

We are the people of this country and every day we work and struggle and wait in vain for the politicians to take responsibility for the offices they’ve sworn to serve – and this is what they’re busy with?

Wake up you tired and lazy fools!

We don’t care about the Gupta’s! Conduct an internal enquiry if you must, but get on with the job at hand.

You are a shameful representation of what this country is capable of.
Mandela would not have allowed you to
Behave this way – he taught you better! He taught us all better!
Shame on you ministers, shame on all you politicians – people are dying through lack of infrastructure and lack of care.

You know better – so DO better!

    Oh, absolutely, forestscribe!

    But if I may just add my meager unemployment tithe to your contribution which echo’s what most civilians with a modicum of common-sense and right-thining are angrily tweeting. You’ve put it far too mildly.

    This whole circus leads all the way to one greasy door. The door of the office of the so-called President of the Republic of South Africa. The idiot of a man actually thinks his devoted followers are all fools. He confuses ignorance with hunger, pain, poverty and desperation.

    The Gupta tentacles are scarily entrenched from Durban to Pretoria.

    But, forestscribe, you should look up one of my most admired writers, Arundhati Roy, who wrote a scathing, but very long essay on how the Gupta’s have infiltrated the rag-tag economy of India and its government corridors.

    But, as I’ve said in one of my own earlier blog posts, with gloves long discarded, Zuma must go! Not next week, not next year, not even today. Yesterday already. Go! Hamba!
