ANC has no clue how to stop crime wave en­gulf­ing SA

Sunday World - - Viewpoint -

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.
