OPEN LETTER TO THE MAYOR




Dear Mr Mayor
I know you are a busy man with lots of things to do, but we believe that we need a little of your attention here in Amanzimtoti, yes the little town here in the South where the majority of your tax money come from. You remember the little town where your Metro dropped off all your problems before the soccer world cup. The vagrants and prostitutes that you didn’t want the world to see, we are not sure if you dropped them here because you knew we have problem solving skills here in the South, or if you wanted to show us who’s boss, sir.

We are also not sure if the window dressing exercise worked, as I read that a few tourists were raped even after you dumped these people in Amanzimtoti.
Well I write this letter just to remind you that you have forgotten these people here, and they are still stuck on our side-walks, side-walks that you paved 3 times in two months because your engineers forgot that the water pipes that they planned to replace was under the new paving. Now that expensive paving is only home for the footprints of drug dealers and prostitutes, we are really running out of traffic lights and parking areas, Mr Mayor you know places where these vagrants can work and sleep. Now Mr Mayor I am not asking you to put more traffic lights in, as I know it is very expensive, we just asking you to come and fetch these people and take them back, back to the streets your Metro kidnapped them from.

I know it is election month, and the vagrants are not registered to vote, and you need to get good support, but it might be a good time to show that you can fix the things for the taxpayers here in Amanzimtoti.

I would like to thank you as a reasonable man in advance for your prompt response solving this matter

Kind Regards


Willie Beetge
