A rain­bow dream

Home Paint It - - YOUR SPACE -

Char­lotte Pre­to­rius of Klerks­dorp writes My dream be­gins with a rain­bow. At the end of it there are tins and tins of paint; enough to paint ev­ery shack and RDP house in South Africa. Our town­ships should have colour­ful houses in green, yel­low, red, pur­ple, blue and or­ange.

If I could ex­tend my dream fur­ther, I'd pro­claim the day af­ter the elec­tion as Na­tional Paint Day, a public hol­i­day. While the IEC counts the votes, the peo­ple of our na­tion can paint houses so that they look beau­ti­ful for the next five years. In this way, a new sense of com­mu­nity will be cre­ated among our peo­ple while ev­ery­one strives to make their homes more at­trac­tive.

It’s a big dream, but maybe one day there will be a rain­bow big enough for our coun­try. And it’s so nice to dream…
