Sliding backwards


It is clear that denial is no longer just a river in Egypt and
that it has become the mainstream of African National Congress
policy. What every citizen knows is confirmed by both internal
and external reports and surveys. South Africa is sliding
backwards in every area that the government controls.


Crime, poverty, unemployment and lack of housing are perhaps
more noticeable but the shocking state of both health and
education holds little hope for the future. Citizens fortify
their homes and pray each day if they have to make a trip to
work, go shopping or pick up children from school that they will
not be the next victim.


Unconcerned ANC ministers are surrounded by armed bodyguards and
travel in bullet-proof vehicles with accompanying convoys for
protection. They live in mansions with every security device
invented and manned by more armed security guards, all paid for
out of public money. No wonder the ANC believes that crime is
under control, that 2010 World Cup visitors will be safe and
that those who point out problems are deranged or should leave
the country.


Without even the vague possibility of the ANC being voted out of
power, South Africa will remain in its backward slide to join
its worse-off brothers in Africa, at which point those who came
here to rape, rob and plunder the rich pickings will return home
to enjoy their new wealth. No doubt the ANC will then claim to
have solved the illegal immigration problem.
