Drugs

 Drugs

The sophisticated method used to peddle drugs is indeed mind-boggling. These unscrupulous people have even used school children to do their dirty work and worst of all, made drug addicts of innocent children. The public has to be vigilant and partner with the police in the fight against drug dealing otherwise our children could become write-off's and junkies in the future.

Power Shortages

Power Shortages

The problem of power shortages is far more serious than we actually think.Power shortages have become in the last year a genuine and serious problem; and in some areas a real crises with frequent interuptions. Is someone going to make a "killing" by selling generators like other countries? Maybe someone from the electricity dept. should explain the reasons to the public - to be verified by the experts.

Astrology

Astrology

It really came as a shock to us that so many people believe in the art of predictions through astrology, horoscopes, palm-reading, etc.Furthermore we are shocked to learn the considerable influence astrology plays in the life of people to the extent of being "married" to a banana tree. Let the people cast all superstitions, bad omens, etc. aside. God Almighty is fully in control of the universe & nothing happens besides His Will. If all the people believe this, we shall have nothing to fear about.

Agriculture

 Agriculture

It is commendable that the Dept. of Agriculture is offering and creating growth in the country.However it's always a stumbling block when misapporiation of funds and misallocation of systems dampens progress; and such allegations have commonly surfaced at various governmental departments. Many at national & provinctial level are sincere in their delivery services to the people albeit a few corrupt ones standing in the path of progress and empowerment. Government should be encouraged to offer more opportunities and create self-sustainable jobs for the jobless people. The obsticles of mismanagement and controls must be a priority given the effort and money outlayed in the various projects.

United States of Africa

United States of Africa

 

A United States of Africa after all may be a good idea.Some may argue that presently that the African Continent is not united among themselves on many issues then what is the purpose of a USA (Africa)? But with commitment and resolve this can be overcome.Imagine the long term benefits to the whole Continent if this happens. HIV/Aids, disease, poverty, starvation, corruption, violence, wars – all can be controlled, monitored and eliminated in a United Africa.God bless Africa!

Cremation

Cremation

Local authorities must be conversant with the laws and teachings of the various faiths. According to the Islamic faith, for example, cremation is a definite no.An alternative may be to provide vacant land further away from built-up areas. The authorities need to extensively consult with the respective role players and religious leaders before it becomes a major controversy, else it could become like the name-changing controversy.
