Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Kobedi Boikanyo's letter "Weed out the dark forces in Khutsong" refers.
Boikanyo must realise that there is a breach of democracy in Khutsong. The people were not consulted about being moved. This is a clear case of forced removal. People have the right to fight undemocratic practices and forced removals. The government is responsible for the lack of schooling in Khutsong and must be blamed.
When we struggled to end apartheid, they called us disgusting names - same as the ones used for Khutsong residents today.
The issue is service delivery. People believe that by being forcibly removed from Gauteng to North West, services will be worse.
Service delivery is uneven in South Africa. One cannot compare Cape Town and Mthatha when it comes to service delivery and no one can deny it. This government must go, then we can solve our problems democratically. Instead of getting better, conditions are getting worse.
The people of Khutsong deserve to be treated fairly. We live in a democracy and the people of that township deserve serious attention.
Everything is clear. We don't need an investigation because it is just a waste of money, like investigations into the struggles for better service delivery.
