Poverty Knows No Colour

HomelessMr. Jacob Zuma, the eccentric President of South Africa’s governing body, the ANC, expresses disbelief at the increasing rate of impoverished whites in the rainbow nation. The percentage of homeless white people have increased by 58% since 2002 and the number continues to increase everyday. The same low level economic profile runs through an overwhelming number of black South Africans; lack of portable water, electricity and a decent daily meal. Though Mr. Zuma believes the issue should not be politicized, his call for help for "these people" should actually read "I will do all in my power to ensure that the South African economy is run efficiently, through an open, transparent and just system of rules that empowers every citizen, black or white to realize his or her full potential through rewarding hard work, and not through hand outs!"
