The hashtag #DearMrPresident continues to trend as South African citizens have their say on the topic sparked by a letter I penned to the President on Wednesday. I can confirm that I have not yet received a response to my letter and many of you feel that I won’t. However, your response has sparked a fire, which I hope the Presidency will eventually not be able to ignore. I continue to hope that President Zuma will realise that the power that the people have vested in him can make a massive difference if it is channeled towards positive change.
This morning Redi Thlabi asked on 702 and CapeTalk what ideas listeners would direct towards #DearMrPresident. You can find the podcast here.
Thank you for carrying this conversation forward. I end off with some of the many tweets on the subject:

#DearMrPresident when you and your cabinet disobey court orders you set the tone which criminals read as a sign that its "a free for all"
