We share with you our personal letters to our dear President:
What are we going to do with you?
I don’t know what you could say to make matters right.
Cajoling won’t suffice -
Your words no longer enchant us.
It just seems too late -
Your image has been tarnished,
And our interest has waned.
Shower roses and corruption trials,
Who knows what else?
Step down, we ask.
You’ve had your chance.
Dear Mr. President
Firstly I’d like to ask you to take the time to read some of the emails that are flooding your inbox at this moment. That would require humility and time on your part as you will have to put your own agenda aside for half an hour or so. Secondly I ask of you that you acknowledge and respect the earnestness with which every single letter was sent. This was not done to complicate your life. Safety is a basic human right and something the people of South Africa are desperate for.
Be humble enough to take the criticism and turn it around so that our country can reach her full potential. You are in the position to do so.
I leave you with two inspirational quotes on leadership:
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader” - John Quincy Adams
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Please deliver to the people what you have promised them:
A safe country.
It’s time now. Dammit.
Dear Mr President
I would like to know why you and the ANC have not improved on crime, how difficult is it to pump money and incentives into the police force to attract new genuine people that would be proud to serve this country and protect its people? Why can’t our police officers be better educated, so that they understand peoples constitutional rights, know how to eradicate crime syndicates and have the knowledge to arrest them within the law, so that the criminals remain in prison and are not let out two weeks later on a technicality because some person didn’t do his/her job properly?
Speaking of rights is it not unconstitutional for people to live in fear of being raped, or of having a gun held up to their heads because some useless parasite decides he want a cell phone or a car? They have no rights when they decide to rape and kill, we do, we deserve to be protected from these people and I would like to know why you are not doing your upmost to make sure this is happening?
Mr President, the time of a transitional government is over, you would think that 20 years is long enough to get your ‘stuff’ together. There are no more excuses, you have all the resources available to you and it is up to you to make a difference and make it happen. Now get on with it and sort out our beautiful country.
