Myself and no doubt thousands of others, including our local blacks and coloureds, must have some real concerns, over this latest stupid, politically motivated decision to build 1500 more plakkers houses, all so that this ANC bunch can stay in power. I just wonder how many people have realised the implications of possibly 6000 new inhabitants plus, filtering into the local environment and the increase in crime this is going to bring. I doubt if anyone will be interested in investing in Jeffreys Bay anymore if this is allowed to happen, and there will a corresponding drop in property prices. I very much doubt there will be a property market anymore because people would have to have rocks in their heads to move to a place where the ruling elite is just out to line their pockets and couldn't care a fig about the people.
I really think this has to be stopped dead in its tracks, otherwise we are all going to regret it. Do the locals, blacks I refer to, know how this is going to affect their jobs or lack of jobs situation, there are going to be even less jobs to go around, and I very much doubt if the building industry will ever get going again. So literally thousands of extra job seekers, walking the streets, with no hope of finding a job. This will definitely result in an increase in crime and we the white ratepayers are going to be the victims of all of this.Not to mention the xenophobia attacks that are going to take place.
My question is, how does one get this message out to the wider audience, so that they can be made aware of the implications of this foolish decision? How does one get the local blacks to vote against the ANC?
