Too many folks forget who won the liberation struggle and too often their misguided actions end in tragedy.
South Africa is now a democracy of all its people. Our government levies taxes on us, and we pay for infrastructure and services for all.
We won the liberation war. Those anachronists who still express their indignation against bureaucratic failures by using the tactics of armed struggle are guilty of treason.
This includes the thugs who set alight the Kruger Park block of flats in Pretoria to protest against evictions. Tragically, six innocent people died in the inferno.
In a democracy you vote out politicians you disapprove of - you don't destroy community property. Those who do must pay a hefty price.
