Twenty-eight female guards were unfairly dismissed by a security company because the client‚ Metrora.
I HAVE always wanted to hold national symbols like the national anthem in high regard, the same way the Americans do with their anthem and flag.
South African and black as I am, I am beginning to just ignore the brutality with which Ras Dumisani, pictured, butchered our national anthem before the Springboks 20-13 loss to France in Toulouse last Friday.
Our masses are slowly feeling ashamed of being South African because of the politicking in our powerful nation.
I have since 1994 wanted to see things in this country done in a proper manner, parallel to election promises.
Our struggle heroes always chant promises before elections, only to recoil and micro-manage all aspects of our lives, with utter carelessness and arrogance.
Unless those promises are aggressively and meticulously attended to, and politicians smoke up their arrogance, I do not see why I should condemn Dumisani.
Unless of course you want to justify the fact that our people still have to seek the bush for a loo and a murky crocodile-infested river for a shower - years after 1994.
Just speaking my mind. Period.
