Mr. Apartheid is armed and dangerous!

There is apparently a criminal on the loose in SA whom is causing huge devastation and tragedy in the community. Senior police officials have identified the man as Mr. Apartheid, whom is described as a bitter white male.

Government officials has blamed Mr. Apartheid as being responsible for the spate of hijackings, rapes, murders and thefts South Africa is experiencing over the past 14 years. He has been seen running around our streets, with a 9mm in his hand committing all these crimes all by himself. Just yesterday he was seen entering a house, raping a woman in front of her husband and children and then executing the whole family. Mr. Apartheid is considered armed and dangerous and shouldn’t be approached by the public.

Mr. Apartheid has reportedly also single handedly screwed up our judicial system from the cops to the courts. He somehow has the power to influence the appointment of total incompetent fools as senior police officers as well as crooked judges.

Further Mr. Apartheid is spreading his sickness called AIDS through the community because he seems to be unable to operate a condom.

Mr. Apartheid has also been blamed by senior black politicians for the lack of service delivery to the poor. It is apparently Mr. Apartheid who gives lucrative government contracts to his friends and family and then fails to deliver on them. It is also apparently Mr. Apartheids whom is stealing himself blind in the government.

Conspiracy theorist has brought up wildly controversial theory that Mr. Apartheid is in fact scapegoat for failure by the current government to do their job. Government officials have labeled these conspiracy theorists as Racist Paranoid Whites, who should shut up because anything they say is racist as holding a opinion that differs from the government is clearly racist.

Ag no, man.

I understand your anger and hurt.

But.

For God's sake understand what decades and generations of oppression DO to the generations who grow up with it and under it. You want a decent, civil society? You need education. You need employment. You need a police force. You need a culture of responsibility.

You want this to emerge from the new post apartheid egg shazam! with all these qualities that came from where?

This is a terribly simplistic and naive post. Ek hou regtig van die blog maar ek verwag 'n bietjie meer. Die verantwoordelikheid staan met die individu, ja, but you CANNOT discard the past as irrelevant to the current state of the country.

It is not irrelevant. It is the brutal cause...It was the effing inevitable outcome. This present was written decades ago.

You want change, you need exceptional individuals to lead it, and most people are not exceptional. To live exceptionally is to live uncomfortably. Most people just want to live with as little bother as possible. What were our parents - what were we - doing when apartheid was in full swing?

Most of them, most of us, nothing.

Marie - I agree with you on 99% what you are saying. Apartheid was a big mistake and South Africans are and will continue to suffer from it for a long time.

However, you can't keep blaming Apartheid for EVERYTHING! At some stage personal responsibility has to be taken. As I said no doubt Apartheid caused tremendous harm to South Africa, it is currently being used as an EXCUSE for underperformance and lack op personal responsibility.

Lack of education and / or equal opportunity etc. doesn't make you stupid. It also doesn’t make you unable to distinguish between right or wrong.

Most employees in government at least have a basic education. When they steal themselves blind, how is that Apartheid fault? How is bribery and corruption, Apartheids fault? A lack of education also doesn’t mean you will turn into a criminal. There are poor, uneducated people everywhere in the world and in very few places on earth things goes as badly as in SA.

It is a very complicated subject that I don't have time to address here. Maybe I'll dig up my Argus article on it. Out of curiosity, how old are you? Maybe you never actually saw apartheid in full swing. Maybe you never saw shacks being bulldozed in front of mothers and children, or boys being beaten. Maybe you never heard the 9pm siren that meant that black people had to be off the street.

The damage of apartheid, I
I say again, is our inheritance.

And we are expecting new officials to be better than old officials.

Of course the white South African was not corrupt. Oh no, perish the thought. My father's best friend was assassinated by that white government because he was about to expose such corruption, but that's just a teeny, personal snippet.

Soos ek gese het, dis 'n diep, seer, saak.

I am a product of apartheid. Excellently educated and equipped for life.

At great cost.

Hi Marie.

I was 15 when apartheid ended and completely ignorant to it. At that age I only had girls on the mind.

Again I agree with you it was aweful. No doubt. It still doesn't excuse the current corruption and blatant mismangement of current government officials.

I'm pretty sure there was LOADS of corruption during the apartheid regime. You are spot on Marie. It was a corrupt horrible system and I am happy it is gone.

Because the old regime was corrupt and horrible, it still shouldn't be an excuse for current failures. Two wrongs doesn't make a right.

Yes, I do expect new officials to be better than the old officials. I expect government to do their job and take responsibility for their own mismangement and / or corruption. I expect government to be honest and not misnmange taxpayers money. I expect government to provide safety and security.

I would love to read your article which was in the Argus.

I still maintain my stance that although Apartheid was horrendous, it should not be used as an excuse when the current government mismanage etc.

When someone puts his hand in the till and blame it on apartheid, it is rediculous. It is a shifting of responsibility.

Interesting to note that most countries that develop and make progress, are those countries where there is no time to blame today's ills on yesterday's foes. Blame there is, put to focus thereon, is most unconstructive and inhibiting for any form of positive development.
Forget - never!
Blame - never!

Mr A is apparently a member of the mysterious "THIRD FORCE" which has not been identified to date, but makes such a convenient scapegoat when things go horribly wrong in SA such as the xenophobic murders last year, fourteen years after Mr A was supposedly convicted and hanged, and the "THIRD FORCE" disbanded.
