Daily Prompt: Infect

via Daily Prompt: Infect

I am crying for my country, South Africa. The Rainbow dream died with Madiba. The New Dawn of Prez Cyril R is super-infected with a malignancy of the cancerous kind. We are dying here.The name of the disease is zumastatcapturiscorruptis. It is endemic to South Africa.

Symptoms of the disease: People are fed racist rhethoric. Land is grabbed, cash in transit heists is a thing. Wife-killing too. Corruption is rife. Policemen and farmers and political opponents are killed, schools are burnt down. There are no services to speak of. At the municipality, at the post office, at the hospital, in rural areas there is such a lack of any standards of service, people are numbed by nothingness. The list of symptoms goes on, and on, and on…

Our minister of police Bheki Cele got it it wrong yesterday: “The Theme “Safety of Women, Children and vulnerable group is the brighter future of South Africa”This inhuman scourge is fiercely eating the moral fibre in our society and is belittling the dignity of Inzalabantu yezwe kanye nabantwana bethu. The time to say never again is Now! Mr President the police are taking the Thuma Mina call to the streets of South Africa to Bring down the scourge of crimes against women and children and vulnerable group of our society! Sonke Sithi Ngeke! Sobe! Phinde!”

What rubbish. Just words. Don’t placate us. Do something. Protect us. Arrest the thieving and corrupt in our parliament, your police force, our municipalities. Severe action is required.

Today as I write here, a cash in transit heist took place. A gang of guntoting bastards stopped traffic, blew up two cash vans, carried the loot to luxury SUV’s and all witnesses could do is video it on their cellphones. Shots ringing, cars scattering away from the scene, witnesses shouting: “Holy shit. Motherf…..”

Well yes, holy shit, cry. The beloved country is on life support and there is no antidote for zumastatcapturiscorruptis. Serious life-saving surgery is needed. The true antidote for the infection coursing through every fibre of our society is a government that delivers, and love for this country, respect for all people and above all empathy.

  1. Rhoodie my prof v jare gelede, het gewaarsku dat ons land n periode van verhoogde geweld gaan hê agv kinders wat in d tyd vd struggle grootgeword het. Maar agv swak regering het hierdie tyd net erger en erger geword ipv beter. Hoe ou Cyril dit gaan omswaai, weet ek nie. Dit gaan jare en jare en jare vat.

      • Gelukkig was ons nie by die huis nie. Ons bly naby die snelweg en was heeltyd teikens van motorkapings…eendag sommer reg voor ons huis! Ons gemeenskapleier is ook vermoor op sy verjaarsdag. Oppad gewees vir ete, toe hulle hom skiet en sy motor vat. Vandaar af is ons buurt toegemaak en dit gaan beter.
