“The central question is whether the spending of taxpayer’s money requires oversight? It may seem to be the dumbest question of all time yet remains the most relevant.
In our beautiful, undeniably fucked up country, citizens complain in crescendos of whispers. About burst pipes, broken roads, electricity prices, preventable petrol increases, preventable fluctuations of our currency, and so many other things. Yet the overwhelming majority do nothing to stop the rotten element in our Government that’s making us bankrupt.
It’s like they’re yelling, “Don’t leave me out, come rob my house. I’ll give you a beer if you break into a sweat carrying my shit. Wow, check at those muscles. You must work out a lot.”
I’m not like that.
This may be an exposé but it’s also a conversation between you and me. I want you to understand why I felt compelled to become an activist, why the DA put me through hell. I know some of you, maybe most of you, are reading without accepting what I’ve got to say. But I’m stubborn so I’m trying anyway. Realise that the DA isn’t Jesus unless he’s got that blue tinge you get when you drown. That’s what will happen to us if we try walk on the watery promises of Western Cape politics…”
