By Lindokuhle Dr Dream Mnisi
Rural Activists Organization (R.A.O) representation picture. Voices of the rural people.
AIM: To achieve a fair balance of living conditions among all South Africans.
MISSION: To express the views, grievances and sentiments of the rural people by giving them the pltform to directly speak to their Government.
VISSION: To see change, balance, fairness, and equality between the rural areas and other states in South Africa.
THIS IS YOUR TIME TO TELL THE GOVERNMENT HOW IT HURTS TO BE IGNORED AND LEFT TO SUFFER IN RURAL AREAS.
THE VOICES OF THE RURAL PEOPLE SHALL BE HEARD. THIS IS THE RIGHT TIME...
This is an organization formed to cater for all rural people and villagers. This is where rural people express their sentiments and grievances about how it affect them and hurts to be left behind and abandoned (by the Government). This organization also serves as a platform for all rural people to speak out publicly about the imbalances, unfairness and inequalities of law and poor living conditions within the rural areas.
This group serves as a new chapter for villagers to start stretching their minds and think innovatively about what is good for them. This will help every villagers to be informed about all the necessities of life they are suppose to receive form thier government. Therefore this initiative acts as an informatory tool that will ensure that people are well informed about their South Africa.
The Government have forgotten about the people living in rural areas, informal settlement and villages. Corruption replicate itself within the state government and in the higher offices. No one goes back to the rural parts of South Africa to provide information and clarity about whatever is happening, but people are affected by some sort of laws and policies taken by the state. People do not know about ANC, DA, PAC, COPE or IFP until comes the election times. When all the promises are being made, that is when and where our people know about these above political parties. When it's time to implement all those promises, we only hear of corruption.
That is where and when the Rural Activists Organization (R.A.O) comes in to begin to say, we want clarity and better life for all. You cannot keep us there and forget about how we make a living. That is when we begin to spread our views and act to meet up with our government. There is no age restriction in this organization because even teenagers are facing the problem of being abandoned. service delivery in rurals is the poorest of them all.Reporting.
In the rural areas you hardly find journalists and reporters who comes to monitor the situation. Journalists do not know what is happening in the rural areas because no body want to work in a filthy place like rural villages, therefore that is when R.A.O comes in to go direct to the officials and government and say "We want to see change in villages. You want to silence the media? for what? so that we can continue to be oppressed and neglected in the villages"? A group on facebook will ensure to mobilise a number of villagers around SA who will post updates about what is happening in their rural places, and we will tackle that issue until Government takes action.
