Senekal last week had nothing to do with solutions. It was all about politicians’ testosterone. It was all about politicians’ egos. What useful idea came out of all that heat and noise generated by all those politicians in Senekal last week? There is nothing. Nothing that makes SA a better place. Nothing that leads us to a better understanding of race relations in SA after 1994. Nothing that is a solution to farm murders – many of whose victims are poorly paid, desperate black people – or a solution to the incredibly horrendous murder and crime problem in this country.
To all Christian readers (and those who celebrate Christmas for other reasons) hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks to all the contributors who made this Blog lively, at times challenging but (I hope) seldom boring. I leave you with the most camp and cheesy Christmas song I could find. Enjoy!BACK TO TOP
