When in Mamelodi East’s Mahube area a few weeks ago, I bought a Daily Sun newspaper that carried the picture of a burned body on its frontpage on 6 Nov 2013. Could this have been done differently?
Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa and State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele have reportedly said using images of President Jacob Zuma’s private residence renovated with over R200m of our taxes is illegal and has since asked us, South Africans citizens and anyone for that matter, to desist from using the images. Is this a bit extreme?
We are all in agreement that our current public service is in shambles and only needs us who use it and work there to fix it and get things right the way they should be run just as the Batho Pele Principles direct us. Additionally, our attitude towards the public health services is one of the major challenges that we have to sort out the soonest.
