    Default PICS: Damages around Union Buildings a safety hazard

    Pretoria People visiting the Union Buildings in Pretoria are in for a nasty surprise.

    They will be forced to contend with an unsightly street, with missing parts of a fence and street lights and dangling wires, unbecoming of the seat of national government and one of the most important tourist attractions in the capital.

    What used to be a beautiful garden on Government Avenue bordering the Union Buildings on the west can hardly be recognised with all the weeds that have taken over.

    And the two large gaping holes in the fence are not contributing to the attractiveness of the area.

    As if neglecting that was not bad enough, cyclists, joggers and residents in nearby areas alleged that vagrants have now invaded the spot, and established a permanent settlement among the rubble.

    Concerned residents and passers-by have been complaining to the Department of Public Works regarding the state of the gardens for months. Some of the issues have been attended to, but others have been left in a sorry state.

    Fear not dearest, the ANC is showing the white monopoly power that they will decolonise the gardens as they have deflowered all they can lay their hands on. With the subtlety of a raging bear with its ass on fire

    If we could just dial things back to zombie apocalypse at least there'd be more predictability.
