Tolerance towards all should be our aim
MOST of my letters are always written with great enthusiasm but this one I write with disdain and disappointment.
The hatred and unfair illtreatment of people living with albinism and disability, of homosexuals, gays and lesbians – must be eradicated at all costs.
Why do we make these people’s lives a misery and a living hell as if they had committed some serious crime?
Who are we to judge them? Don’t we eat the same food that they eat?
Don’t they breathe the same air that we breathe?
What is it that make us think we are special, unique or better than them?
Is this the democracy for which we vigorously fought when we ill-treat and reduce other people to second class citizens?
The only mention you will hear of these people is towards election time. as their votes are only what matters.
They have to double if not triple their efforts to get a job.
The government must lead by example by employing these people.
Stigmatising these people as being associated with witchcraft is pure nonsense and must be discouraged.
These people voted just like us for our democracy so let’s show them the respect and dignity they deserve.
Why not cut them a slice of the cake? They are people just like us, or aren’t they? Matthew 7:12 – Do unto others as you would have it done unto you.
