Freedom taken for granted
IT IS HIGH time that the people of South Africa opened their eyes and also realised that our freedom did not come free. What is currently happening in KwaZulu-Natal, the Free State, North West and the Eastern Cape is a sign that this democracy is taken for granted.
The worst part is that these people sometimes invoke the names of our late leaders who made sacrifices to achieve their ends.
Why must our country burn to fight their proxy wars? Any sober person can see that factional politics are not progressive but rather that they destroy and continue to do so.
Supra Mahumapelo has plunged the province of North West into crisis and unfortunately there are people who are busy supporting him. He must be isolated if he doesn’t want to do the right thing.
The president has done a great thing by invoking Section 100 of the constitution and put the entire province into administration, and other provinces must learn from this. Tom Mhlanga Braamfontein, Joburg
