I am yet to meet a People who are more than ready to destroy their own environment in an effort to “make a statement” about their need for adequate service delivery.
For this “statement”, Black South Africans are always ready to burn down their own neighbourhoods, reside in ashes and wait for the same useless ANC government (which heavily relies on White people’s taxes) to rebuild the same neighbourhoods they had burned to the ground.
Therefore, whenever a Black community makes a “statement” towards a local government, what they really want to say is, “we don’t really care about our lives. Which is why we are ready to destroy ourselves just to get your attention.”
For no people who have a real understanding and appreciate their value would do what Black South Africans do whenever their illusions turn around and bite them. And what are these illusions?
[You will never see Indians or White people burn buses, parks and roads just to get the attention of a failing local government.
All they do is vote for whomever serves them best. Blacks vote and keep those who fail them the most (ANC) and then turn around and blame Whites for being extraordinarily smart about their vote.
A quality South African Blacks are yet to exhibit in our failed Democracy.]
Do they not involve voting and supporting a racist Black party that gains billions just for failing and exploiting Black people? And Black people still do not see anything wrong with keeping the ANC in power for doing nothing but keep them hungry.
Take the current #AlexandraTotalShutDown protest for example. The impression we are given is that since the City of Johannesburg is governed by the Democratic Alliance (Herman Mashaba); it therefore follows that the villain is the DA.
Yet when you look closely, you will notice that the wards that are protesting and burning Alexandra are governed by the ANC, and have their full support in destroying their community.
Not only are they governed by the ANC, these very same communities were complaining in 2017 that their councillor, Tefo Raphadu, has been ducking and diving them. Thus failing to meet with them when they needed him most.
This came after a violent ANC/EFF-inspired land grab which ultimately had violent implications, and this councillor was no where to be found.
Now, what is the role of a councillor in our communities? Is it not to liaise with the municipality (mayor), advance the interests of his/her ward and deliver them?
Obviously with ANC councillors, mayors, premiers and presidents, their single most objective is to keep Black people hungry, stupid and always ready to burn everything in order to keep the ANC in power.
Thus one cannot expect anything else from these vile devils.
The same is true in the Western Cape. The province in its totality is governed by the DA, yet Black communities (where Blacks do not mind being hungry as long as the ANC is in power), are governed by ANC councillors who obviously fail them on every turn.
Thus when they burn their surroundings, seeking more police stations, cleaner roads and safer streets; the impression is that the DA is failing them. And this impression is very fitting because it is a White woman who is the Premier of the most prosperous and best governed province in South Africa.
Yet they will never arise against a Black ANC government that has been withering their value for the past 24 years.
The same way Alexandra residents were easily manipulated by ANC looters to burn down their neighbourhoods and send the impression that it is a DA local government that is failing them. When it is their own ANC councillors, who live right there with them, whom they should mad at.
Yet again, when have black people ever risen agains those who fail them?
Their most prized apetite is to destroy themselves and wait for an ANC looter to save the day.
I mean, is it not clear by now that main source of every single problem that is plaguing South Africa is the ANC?
It is just very sad the Black South Africans are still very far from realising this obvious fact.
