27 November 2000Helicopters and Cholera
to Kwa-Zulu Natal :
our Premier of this province has lots to be accountable for. The beginning
of this month I reported on his extravagant
lifestyle flying to the office in a Learjet. Seems now some more has
surfaced regarding this ANC member and employee of the people.
helicopter pad is being built at his residence (so that he can fly to
the airport instead of driving). Over and above this, he has requested
a new office block for his legislature. Seems the old building (which
is half full at the best of times) is just not sufficient anymore. This
exercise will cost the taxpayer in the region of Ten Million Rand.
Being part of the minority in this here country gives me full license to criticize. The ANC has been in power for how long now. The people on the ground have seen what's happening and yet the ANC got into office again after the last elections. It is the poor that's been taken advantage of and they constitute the majority. Vote the suckers out!
I can only hope that with our local elections on the 5th of December, the ANC will loose a couple of prime seats. The general attitude amongst the black population is to not vote. How stupid can you get? But then again, this is Africa after all.
Cape Town has the honor of having the best hotel in the world. That's right. A score of Ninety Five Percent was given to a local hotel on the V&A Waterfront. The highest ever rewarded to any hotel in the world. And a game reserve has also walked off with top honors. Seems our tourism board must now jump in and actively promote these places. Tourism is big business anywhere in the world, but especially in South Africa. Pity about the crime and all the bombs in Cape Town, though that has subsided quite drastically with the arrest of certain PAGAD members a week or so ago. The citizens are also tired of all these bombs and have become more alert with anything suspicuous being reported immediately.
show and it's about bloody time!
