Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
I read in Sowetan last week that the government in Limpopo wants to get rid of mochaena.
Who do they think they are to try and stop people playing this great gambling game?
They forget that mochaena - or fah-fee - probably paid for most of their schooling when their parents were poor.
Now, because they are riding the gravy train, they say fah-fee should be illegal.
They forget that there are many poor people who still depend on it to get by.
The people of Limpopo must fight for their right to play this game because the government will never give them money to survive, especially not to the unemployed.
Why don't they rather get rid of the Lotto or gambling casinos where so many people lose their money?
But they won't do that because of the big money they get from these "legitimate" enterprises.
At the end of each month the government gets fat cheques from the profits they make from the Lotto and the casinos.
They should let the poor play fah-fee because it helps them to survive and to feed their children.
Playing fah-fee is a better option because each week you can at least win something - but with the Lotto it's only a chance in a million.
