SOME quotes spring to mind when it comes to South Africa’s tar­nished No 1 and his il­lic­itly en­riched abom­inable friends.

Amer­i­can lin­guist and so­cial critic Noam Chom­sky said: “For the pow­er­ful, crimes are those that oth­ers com­mit.”

Amer­i­can lawyer and busi­ness­man Rudy Gi­u­liani was spot on when he said: “It’s about time law en­force­ment got as or­gan­ised as or­gan­ised crime.”

Mario Puzo, the au­thor of The God­fa­ther, prob­a­bly hit the nail on the head with: “Be­hind ev­ery suc­cess­ful for­tune there is a crime.”

Zupta In­cor­po­rated should be­come Zupta In­car­cer­ated, which would go a long way to­ward see­ing them out our lives for­ever. Rand­burg I SHARE the grief and fear of the res­i­dents of Faerie Glen in Tsh­wane.

The big­gest is­sue is that South Africa is too weak, and no con­struc­tive changes and re­views are be­ing made for the bet­ter­ment and safety of our lives.

For crim­i­nals, crime is a full-time busi­ness. Courts make it easy to get bail.

My sug­ges­tion it that there should be no bail for the big five. I re­it­er­ate: No bail. The big five are: rapists, mur­der­ers, hi­jack­ers, druglo­rds and cor­rupt peo­ple in the cabi­net.

If laws are not re­viewed and changes made im­me­di­ately then crime, the mon­ster, is go­ing to carry on and on. Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions and dock­ets will reach as high as the ceil­ing.

Crime is in­ter­rupt­ing our daily lives, de­stroy­ing our peace of mind and stress­ing us. As it is we have plenty of stress to deal with, po­lit­i­cally and eco­nom­i­cally.

Po­lice morale needs to be boosted. Min­is­ter Fik­ile Mbalula, an appeal from all South Africans to you is to please tackle this vam­pire, crime. Please. #CrimeLawsMustBeRe­viewed! Rusten­burg
