The shebeen next door

Most weekends – Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, all night until dawn – the long-suffering residents of Midrand’s President Park endure sleepless nights as high decibel music pounds non-stop at Lot Maceve’s Mbafi Lodge.

A suggestion to sort out this mess - collect about 1000 harmless snakes and release them on Mr. Maceve's property, and also let it be known that a sangoma ( sp ) has cast a spell on all who visit this property.

This might achieve more than the official channels can accommodate.

Best of luck

This is the type of situation that feeds vigilantes. When someone who is an ANC MP considers himself above the law and the police clearly are being paid not to do their duty in protecting the public being threatened it will sooner or later invite an attack from the ultra right wing, who no doubt will be painted to be old school apartheid activists etc. There is nothing more to be said about a weak and despondent police force dragging its heels and dragging the country at large down the drain into fear and anarchy.
