I AM a very angry young black South African.
When the first democratic elections were held, I understood the reasons behind the ANC’s overwhelming victory. Everyone was fighting against one common pandemic – apartheid.
Now everyone is confused, even the ruling party. They are so self-centred, it is disgusting.
How do you explain it, when you are running a department and you don’t even use those services yourself?
They keep on telling us about apartheid. What is apartheid? I don’t care about apartheid. We want teachers, books and jobs.
The president of the country gets a security upgrade of R200-million and someone says that it is justified.
What do these people take us for, fools?
Maybe that’s the reason they don’t want us to get quality education – to be ignorant and illiterate. This is oppression.
South Africans, it is no longer about WHO is wrong or right but WHAT is. Let us stop voting with our emotions, and vote with our brains.
We voted for people who would look after our needs and wants, not for their security and their families’.
What about us? Are we safe from whatever they are running from?
These guys tell us to vote for them again because of what they’ve built. It’s your job to build those things, I pay you (with my taxes) to do that. It does not mean you can take me for a ride.
The onus is on us young people, please.
