Build the country
Stay in South Africa and help build the country, they say.
What if they don’t want us to help build the country?
Tommie has a contract where he uses his machinery to rebuild roads, make soccer fields, clear up the dumping grounds or open up areas for the water department to fix water pipes…. Stuff like that. Stuff that makes our lives as citizens run more smoothly. He has a contract with our local government who often doesn’t pay on time.
As it may be when you operate big machinery, you can’t take them back to your yard at night. During the week they mostly stay wherever you are busy working. Normally this is on municipal grounds with security.
In the past week they have stolen every pipe they could see, the caps of diesel tanks….anything that could be stolen. Last night they tried to take the radiator off and then since they could not, they just broke it. They took screwdrivers and punched holes everywhere.
You cannot help build a country if the people of the country doesn’t want it to be.
