This is a response to Mara Louw's comments at Shimmi Mofokeng's funeral on Tuesday. That was uncalled for. Please let's fight crime directly not our leaders indirectly.
Let's all try to help the police, our justice system with suggestions, ways and means to fight this violent crime that is crippling our country.
The song Umshini wami has got nothing to do with the ever increasing violent crime. So if she wanted to voice her concerns or indirectly support one of our leaders, she should not have done it at the funeral.
We are in desperate need of solutions to this problem that affects all of us, either directly or indirectly. People are being killed in our country every day, but because most of them are not famous and rich, they do not get TV coverage for their families and relatives to be able to voice their concerns regarding crime in the country.
We need solutions to this problem, not pointing fingers directly or indirectly at each other or our leaders.
I'm one of those who believe that the death penalty must be brought back, on the basis that if you kill you should be sentenced to death if found guilty. There is no use to keep them in jail for correctional purposes and being fed for free at the expense of taxpayers, while the families of the victims are starving to death at home and nobody seems to care.
