SANDF must now step up to safeguard trains, passengers due to criminals and protesters reeking havoc

The new trains launched by Ramaphosa must now be guarded on their routes by the SA Defense Force, according to Untu foreman Sonja Carstens.

She called for Ramaphosa to declare the condition at Prasa an “emergency” as criminals and protesters threaten the safety of trains and passengers.

The launch of the one new train is seen as an ANC election gimmick, and its own supporters believe it is just like the fuss made by the Nissan plant being expanded.

So this then is the picture the world sees of law and order in South Africa?

The president wants to emphasize the importance of tourism to a country, already well known, as an unsafe destination. And the government institution responsible for the safety and security of citizens and visitors alike carries an image such as this….

What concerns Front National most is the fact that this is the image of what “South Africans” accept and allow. The world does not pay attention to the statements of objection by individuals on the social media. They say: You have a democratic process and we don’t see evidence that you oppose these things. You keep on voting for impotent parties who does nothing to oppose the direction your country takes.

To that, we have no strong response. And we hear this when we speak to the outside world.

Therefore the white South African has to understand: as long as you carry on supporting the current Parliamentary parties, the world will understand that you tolerate and accept the S

Sly criminals pocketed money donations for Jacob Zuma’s legal costs in lawless stunt

Blacks who are sly criminals are collecting money to help pay the legal costs of Jacob Zuma, but are make sure that they put the donations into their own pockets.

The crooks are not only based in Natal where they cheat uninformed people with the stunt, because the same trick has also been observed in Central Transvaal.

The ANC spokesmen say they will not discourage anyone who wants to help Zuma to blame for the debt, but the party distances him from any involvement in the relationship.

Financial experts doubt whether Zuma has the assets to pay about R16m of legal costs, and may be declared bankrupt in order to get rid of the debt burden.

Meanwhile, the communist SACP has seriously blamed its partner, the ANC, that they have called for Zuma to help make donations for his debt.

Criminals target Johannesburg clinics, facilities without electricity after cable theft – Services at the clinic have been temporarily suspended

The Westbury clinic in Johannesburg was left without electricity after it was tampered with the facility’s main power cable said the health and social development department on Wednesday.

The clinic’s operating manager said in a statement he saw an unknown man running from the building on Tuesday afternoon after a loud blow noise was heard. He also noted smoke from the same direction as the bang.

“The fire brigade was called for precaution and the patients were evacuated. It was a relief to know that there was no fire and the smoke was of wires that burned when the cables were cut, “the department added.

Due to damage to the main power cable, the generator, which serves as backup, could not be switched on.

Services at the clinic have been temporarily suspended and all vaccines have been sent to a nearby clinic for storage.

City Power is working to restore power to the clinic.
