University of KwaZulu-Natal…Get an Education!

University of KwaZulu-Natal’s (#UKZN’s) Edgewood Campus and Howards Campus. You have a great task ahead of yourselves. Do you rebuild and educate the nation beyond the theory? So to show better academia and not merely a qualification factory so that your students respect you and honour our country? Or do us a favour and please shut your doors so that your students’ behaviour is not the school of destruction imitating throughout the country.

What sort of childish, immature and reckless behaviour are our universities and government nurturing? There is no reason justifying criminal behaviour which impedes on the rest of society. Where are the authorities? Anarchies of today want to destroy the future for us all.

South Africa is no longer under any oppressive government (it may feel that way) but we are free. This wannabe freedom fighters [*BS] has to stop for there are other constructive methods of getting one’s grievances heard in a civil manner.

The country already recognises that our leaders in Parliament are not the best of example so let’s look at those who positively contributed to the South Africa we live in today. In saying that some did conduct destructive methodologies – to which we are now paying for the fruits of their actions when we see delinquents burning and destroying our country today we’re similar of our country’s history.

Worth Knowing that the Government is not above the Law!

The real importance of the rule of law today lies in the basic idea underlying all three points (but especially the first) that the state should use its power according to agreed rules, and not arbitrarily.

The three elements for the Rule of Law.

  • First, that there should be no sanction without breach, meaning that nobody should be punished by the state unless they had broken a law.
  • Secondly, that one law should govern everyone, including both ordinary citizens and state officials.
  • Thirdly, that the rights of the individual were not secured by a written constitution, but by the decisions of judges in ordinary law.

Rule of Law Not Respected in South Africa

More than 50 million people throughout the world have been forced to flee their homes. There are more than 13 million refugees worldwide. The United Kingdom currently has 149,799 refugees, which is calculated to 0.24% of the total population.

Many, including myself have made the United Kingdom home. Despite cultural, race and creed – I am a British Citizen. Born and bred in South Africa but I’m still British and to those born within the United Kingdom has to also acknowledge that I’m British and a subject of the Queen. However this is not so in South Africa for I’m within a pecking order as a secondary citizen because being Black matters – it’s called, “Black Economic Empowerment”.

When an asylum seeker is granted status to remain and later is issued with a passport of citizenship. One is able to see this Great Britain welcome its subjects as British. Now, whether the locals like it or not, the Rule of Law dictates the attitude to which all citizens are to respect and tolerate.

We have seen in recent months of the Xenophobic attacks in South Africa as they burnt fellow Africans for being foreigners. If the Leaders of the country who rob, plunder its resources and make a mockery of its legal system – how do the authorities expect the citizens to conduct themselves?

Despite the United Kingdom’s failures and faults – I feel safe and protected (not by the government, the police nor securities) for it is the Rule of Law/ and clearly delineated within the Magna Carta which instructs that even the King is not higher than the Laws of the United Kingdom.

What is the Rule of Law?

The rule of law is the legal principle that law should govern a nation, as opposed to being governed by arbitrary decisions of individual government officials.
