As I was listening to the Minister of Finance, Enoch Godongwana delivering his maiden, MTBPS speech, one part of it caught my attention. It was the bailing out of the South African Special Risks Insurance Association, SASRIA he has allocated this institution an amount of R 10 billionThis is an SOE with a very special objective It covers very special risks, namely riots and/or civil unrests, associated risks. In my opinion, like any Insurance cover it cannot cover deliberately invented unrests formulated by squabbles within the ruling party. As we all know, the July failed insurrections as it has become known was a result of the squabbles within the ANC. But the country has to bear the brunt, sadly we have to pay for thatAs we, the citizens navigate through our economic failures, we should not and must not simply accept that we are paying for damages caused by civil discontent. The unrests were engineered by and within the ANC, the ruling party! We cannot therefore take collective responsibility with the ANC in matters we were never involved in, in the first place! As our fiscus is used to bail out SASRIA, we expect the ruling party to take full responsibility for the damage caused. It is the responsibility of any government to avert such problems and not to cause them. If our Constitution doesn't have any remedy for such indiscretions, we should amend it
The unrest was caused by ANC zealots, and not only that but Ramaphosa's own ministers failed to do enough to prevent them, and now we must all pay for it?
