It is clear to TLU SA, along with all law-abiding citizens, that the South African government is either unable or unwilling to ensure the safety of its citizens. TLU SA will therefore support legislation which affords South Africans the basic right of ensuring their own safety and security.
“We experience the South African government’s inability to protect us in every aspect of society,” says Mr Henry Geldenhuys, TLU SA president. “South Africans aren’t safe at home, at work, on holiday, in cities, towns, rural areas or on farms.
“The majority of South Africans are living in fear, targeted and vulnerable groups like farmers bear the brunt of it. Farmers are on the proverbial front line in the war against crime in South Africa.”
TLU SA is working on proposed policy changes that will allow safety and security expenses to be totally tax-deductible. TLU SA demands that crime-fighting efforts be radically improved, to such an extent that all South Africans will be safe anywhere in the country. If it cannot handle this task efficiently, the government should outsource the management of this basic state responsibility.
“We urge all South Africans fed up with the government’s inability to guarantee our safety, to support this project,” says Mr Geldenhuys. “Fellow South Africans who do not understand our predicament should wake up. Those overseas blind to the facts due to the government’s false international propaganda should take note. It is now time for us to protect ourselves.”
