Crime is killing infrastructure projects in South Africa

Crime is already devastating South Africa’s economy and society, and is now preventing many important infrastructure projects from progressing.

The latest large construction project to be halted because of criminal activity is the Mtentu bridge in the Eastern Cape.

Times like this when you needed a police or army to change the mind of these people.

You cannot have a country held back by idiots.

No need for that, this is perfect example of expropriation without compensation.
It is in public interest (greater good) to build this bridge and if king has title deeds land should be expropriated.
Basically anyone obstructing this process should be arrested.

Funny enough our current law (unamended) actually cater for this. Land can be taken for roads and other infrastructure for the greater good. What is not covered is taking farm land from one farmer and given to another.

Absolutely there is no need for amendment, and there is plenty of land for those that want to farm.
It is just a way of buying votes and staying in power to milk tax payers as long as possible.

Ive said it before, if the ANC loses power, will they give it up willingly?
