Eastern Languages


 All South Africans are entitled to retain their religious and cultural identities through respectable means, language is one powerful identity which is deeply embedded in the hearts of many many people.The axing of Eastern languages from our schools must be seen in the correct context. The department's argument, is the low number of pupils that make-up for classes which is understandable. As parents, let us then increase the numbers and encourage our children to participate in the respective languages according to the culture or religions they belong. In this manner the Dept. may be motivated to continue and sustain the classes.

It is strange that the media fails to mention all that is happening in Afghanistan (dominated by the US and its allies) who now carry the responsibility of all that happens there.The ongoing abuse of women, which is undoubtedly un-Islamic, is an indication that the occupation of Afganistan is failing miserably in terms of all the "grand" objectives that were pronounced for the country. Today, the US-occupied Afghanistan has become the number one drug producer in the world.

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.

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.

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.
