WE live in the so-called black township where strikes happen every month.
Some workers are sick and tired of not getting paid due to the principle of "no work, no pay". So they decide not to join the strikes, at the risk of their lives and the burning of their homes.
We appreciate what they are doing because they have a right not to strike, especially bus drivers or train drivers who are serving mostly the poor communities who don't own personal transport.
We've also got nothing against strikers because in South Africa, it seems to be the only thing that makes authorities listen to the cries of its people. Power to the people.
But my complaint is the naming of these non-strikers in the newspapers. To make it worse, the areas where they live are mentioned. Why?
Why risk about these unfortunate people's lives and homes? Please stop this.
