On the Buses

Here’s a fairly typical suburban scene.

Commuters waiting for a bus, a broken fence, a lamppost in the middle of my picture but what’s written on those pieces of paper stuck on the windows?

One in English and one in Xhosa

You see, when the locals decide to have a riot, (they call them service delivery protests in our new P C culture, go on click the link, see what happens on a regular basis not  10 km from my home) the buses are usually the first target.

Are the signs effective? I’ve no idea!

  1. If it looks like a riot and smells like a riot and sounds like a riot then it’s a riot. The powers that be ought to be spending more time dealing with, or better still preventing riots rather than thinking up stupid non-judgemental names for a riot.

    In case anyone is wondering, a ‘panga’ is better known in Europe as a machete.


  2. It’s the same with French protesters in the banlieues, Soutie. They set fire to buses, bus stops and other things that are actually of use to people. Then they complain there are no bus services to the town centre. and that their communities are being discriminated against.
