I have chosen a cloudy picture.
Because that is how I feel today.
When I first started blogging I talked a lot about politics.
Then I went the humorous route.
It made me happier.
But, today, I have to vent.
My overseas friends probably don’t know what is happening in this country.
Or maybe you do?
A few hundred students are protesting that they want free university education.
They want the universities closed until their demands are met.
To show their displeasure they have burnt down libraries, laboratories and residences.
They have caused MILLIONS of rands damage.
These few hundred “students” are holding thousands of genuine students to ransom.
They won’t let them attend lectures.
They won’t even let them protest peacefully.
I have no problem with free university.
Based on MERIT.
Not free education for people who have scraped through with 30%
Of course, if you are white, then you battle to get into varsity with five distinctions.
NOW you can all shout the racist card.
But, that is what is happening.
I know I shall get a lot of negative comments.
But, I no longer care.
This country is going to hell in a hand cart.
And, it starts from the top.
Our government is saying it is the mysterious third force, trying to unseat them.
This is always their cry when they don’t know what to do.
Get rid of our corrupt president.
Maybe, just maybe, we might have some confidence in you.
His silence, in the present circumstances, speaks volumes.
