ANC has no clue how to stop crime wave engulfing SA
Cry the beloved country. South Africa, a land full of promise, joy and opportunities, has now slowly been poisoned and allowed to die.
People are reconsidering their future here – can they raise their children in a society that harbours so much hate and violence?
Will we see an end to the crime waves that engulf us?
The problem is historic and present, yet the ANC has had 24 years to address fundamentals such as education, jobs and police. Instead, they have turned to gouging on the state, like parasites that have imbued SA with the venom of state capture.
The police force has lost its credibility, labelled as lazy, inept, under-resourced, demotivated, understaffed, archaic and corrupt.
The government needs to put more resources into policing, but the ANC does not have the will nor desire for this, as the shocking crime stats show.
