Shebeen Industry launches TRANSFORMATION: - Cedric - 11-28-2012 07:15 AM

For years I have read media reports on how the Shebeens were being forced out through the concept of removing alcohol abuse and in turn, woman and child abuse. All great content for the media.

The SALTA conference on the 27th November 2012 was motivating. At no stage was the typical license/raid threat the driving content of the conference.

No, the entire day was spend on Economic Transformation, removal of restrictions, inclusion, it was an hounour to participate.

Yes, the official thought process is that our country will have anarchy, this in only a capitalist view, but within the socialist economy, we have not experienced the perceived anarchy, granted, while the taxi industry, the shebeen industry, and informal traders are illegal, the capitalist still is able to press the button, should they wish to control.

There was one lone media journalist, having told me that the media does not support
the ideology of the Economic Freedom Charter, he left the gathering.

To that lone media journalist, why not cover the crazy concept, why not pull the ideology apart?
