Maybe we need a Showmax doccie about the decline of South Africa and then have the government try stop it in court.

Why can’t it be like that in any other sphere of our state? Why do we have to wait until Joburg has no water until we wake up and do something about it? Why must we ring up a R600 million legal bill to deal with medical malpractice before we absolutely decimate public health through NHI? Can’t we just skip past all the pain and get to the agony straight away?

It’s nice to think that we can fix the problems, but in a country where it takes Thabo Mbeki three electoral cycles to wake up and produce his voice, it’s not like there’s much hope. That’s before considering that the president actually lost his voice while in seat.

It can’t be that there’s comfort in the never realising hope of improvement. Something needs to be done even if it means breaking stuff before getting it right – but can we just do something? Have the balls to make some calls and if we get it wrong, we’ll still be in the same place we are now. We have to fix things now. We’d have to fix things then anyway.
