What really matters to the ANC

Watching a news item about Mark Thatcher’s trial I began to understand something about the ANC led government. The BBC cameras focussed on the court buiding where this short trial took place, and showed a hasty cleanup operation taking place. Grime was being removed from the brass letters on the buiding. Clearly, someone realised that the attention of the UK was going to be on that building – hence the cleanup.
And so it is again now with all the new stories we read about govenment – even Mbeki himself -suddenly taking an interest in SA’s violent crime problem. Yep, it is because the World Cup is coming our country.

World, and particularly British, approval matters more than the lives of those who have been maimed or tortured to death in their houses and on their farms.

  1. It’s sad to see the government only jump to action when there’s PR around their activities. It just doesnt feel right to have people at the top so uncommitted to real on-the-ground change for this country.
