Child Grants not a Solution for poverty alleviation

I would like to acknowledge the SA government effort in the fight against poverty but child grant to me is fruitless. According to my observation, I have seen parents who misuse children grants for their personal needs while children are suffering.

How would it be if the government set up the child trust fund instead of child grant by the very same money they are dishing out each and every month. Through this trust Fund the government can send every child a voucher for those families who qualifies.
The money can be put in trust for the future of the children with the stipulation that it can not be withdrawn by the child, parents or any other party until the child turns 18 instead of wasting tax payers’ money by child grants that are not rightly used for maintenance of children.

The rationale behind this would be to save for children so that they can have large enough fund to help with their education cost especially university. We have quiet large number of matriculants who pass their exams well but fail to access University and still have no solutions, we have large number of drop out and still no solution, students are fighting for free education at university level and still we do not have solution. Last time I check the child grant was R190.00 per month, surely this is a large amount of money that can help a great deal if saved for the right purpose. When making my calculations, if you start to save R190.00 form child’s birth, by the time he/she is 18 years of age the money would be plus minus R41040 and with this money a child can register and complete studies with the assistance of NSFAS. So it means that the child will not depend heavily on NSFAS which is just a lone.

The Mamba Bites

Swaziland Justice Minister Ndumiso Mamba love affair with one of king Mswati’s wives is par to the course. Queen Nothando Dube, the King’s 12th wife would dress in a military uniform to slip out of the palace and meet Mamba in a hotel. To me it is a sure sign of starvation because she had to sacrifices herself, I mean we do not expect that kind of act from a married women. But she dressed her self in a military uniform just for sex?

I’m also not surprised that the Queen slept with the childhood friend of her husband, these things happens more often. A women is like a female Animal when is on heat, she can do anything because she is desperate and vulnerable. If a woman does not get what she wants the history has always proven that she can go to another man for satisfaction, she can sleep with your best friend or even your gardener. It is evident that the queen was not satisfied with her husband because it is alleged that this act has been happening every time the king was not around.

It is also arguable that some of these 14 wives are doing the same. Some men can’t even satisfy one wife most especially at their forties. I don’t think Mswati has a magic, surely some of these women are likely to be neglected at night. Just imagine if she had to wait for her turn after 12 others. The other problem is because these queens are still young, most of them at their 20’s, so you can understand the sexual desire they find themselves in.

Muvhango must get their house on order

It is beyond me that Duma Ndlovu, who also owns Word of Mouth Production, could blame the SABC for his financial woes after Muvhango being on air for round about 10 years. I hate to say this but that is how we Africans are, greedy and stingy. When we seize opportunities, we only see a chance to leave large on the expense of others. We either rob our employees or not pay them at all. What happened to saving for the rainy days, a company like Word of Mouth must know better and stop treating actors like slaves.
