SA needs change to make progress
AS A CITIZEN of this country, I would like to express my concerns regarding the senseless killings, rapes, robberies, hijackings, muggings, bullying and the many other forms of anti-social behaviour that has plagued this country for many years.
I may appear to be apathetic or a pessimist but, before anyone shoots me down, allow me to explain.
Our people will rant on social media platforms, hold vigils, mobilise to march and shout at the top of our voices. Unfortunately, all of the above fall on deaf ears.
Just remember, if the law of the country does not change to punish serious and violent criminals with harsher sentences, there is no deterrent.
Government is turning a blind eye to our concerns. Violence has become a way of life for some in South Africa.
Change is inevitable, the sooner the better.
