An Open Letter To Patrice Motsepe

Dear Comrade Patrice,

My father always told me not to beg for anything. Today, he is a very proud man. Living in a cardboard box on the N3, but proud nevertheless. I would rather be rich and ashamed. This is why I am writing to you today.

I have swallowed my pride. It wasn’t easy. I had to wash it down with a dozen beers.

I am, after all, a white man and we are traditionally accustomed to rejecting the hoi polloi with a wave of the hand or a burst of automatic gunfire should a ragged urchin happen to ring the doorbell while the rugby is on.

There is no other way to say this, so here it is. Please, sir, may I have some of your money?

I am emailing you a photograph of me down on my knees kissing a photograph of your shoes. Very nice shoes they are, too. Is that gold plating or were they crafted from Krugerrands melted in furnaces fuelled by the bones of widows and orphans? Just kidding. They are a gift from the guys over at the Mint, right?

You should have the next pair studded with a bunch of Nicky Oppenheimer’s blood diamonds.

Listen to me, giving you fashion advice! You should see my wardrobe. I live inside it in someone else’s bedroom. It’s not too bad. The rent is reasonable and I have a candle for light, heat and cooking. Now who’s laughing, Eskom?

It is unlikely that I would be soliciting so brazenly had I not read a story in the lying, filth-mongering, foreign-controlled media about you donating half the family fortune to the Motsepe Foundation.

My friend Ted said donating money to your own foundation is nothing short of money laundering. I called him a paranoid racist pig and had the neighbourhood watch come around and administer a rectal examination with one of their high voltage cattle prods. He seemed to enjoy it.

Besides, if that’s money laundering, then Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet are also up to no good. White Anglo-Saxon prostitutes, I beg your pardon, Protestants would never dare do anything to besmirch the puritanical reputation of their pilgrim forefathers.

From what I can gather, your magnanimous gesture is aimed at improving the lives of the poor, disabled, women and the youth.

I don’t suppose it’s enough that I am merely poor. You should know, then, that I am prepared to become a woman if it means getting my snout into your largesse.

Would you insist that I have my giblets chopped off? If not, then I am quite happy to become a woman in other ways. I would wear skirts and panties, wash my hair three times a day, shave my nether regions, check my phone every thirty seconds and behave like a lunatic for five days out of every month.

If that’s not enough, I am prepared to become disabled as well. I don’t mind losing a leg if it means never having to work again. I mean, walk again. It doesn’t have to be a leg. An arm is fine. Just not my right one. I use that for drinking and, well, the other thing. You know. You’re married. Of course you know.

Patrice, if you … may I call you Patrice? It seems as if we already know each other. If you cashed in your chips tomorrow, you could walk away with R24-billion rand.

If I were you, I’d buy Zimbabwe first thing Monday morning. Imagine the fun you could have with your very own country. Come to think of it, you could buy Jacob Zuma for a lot less and still have your own country. This might already have happened.

Over the years, I have been watching you grow richer and richer and I often wondered when the bank would call you and tell you to start getting rid of some of it because they were running out of space.

What prompted this sudden act of generosity? Ted says you must have gone to South America on a business deal when you were kidnapped by shamans and taken to the Temple of the Way of Light deep in the Amazon jungle and made to drink ayahuasca which opened up channels to the spirit world where the Cosmic Serpent told you to share your wealth with those who needed it.

I know this guy in Cape Town who went to Peru and drank a ton of ayahuasca and when he came back he bought me breakfast after a surf at Muizenberg, something he never would have done before.

It’s definitely possible that you were in an altered state of consciousness when you decided to give away half your fortune, and I don’t particularly care whether you reached this state after taking a psychoactive drink or a call from your accountant.

The important thing is that you did it.

Let’s get back to me for a moment. Like John F Kennedy, I, too, have asked not what I can do for my country, but what my country can do for me. Not much, as it turns out.

Oh, sure. My country was very nice to me when it came to guaranteeing me an education, a job and plenty of room to spread out on North Beach in December. But that was then, before democracy came along and ruined everything. I have been outraged for a very long time.

You can’t love anyone unless you love yourself and you can’t help anyone unless you help yourself. And I want to help myself. To your money.

However, I am so far back in the queue that I might as well give you something instead. Advice.

Listen to me. I know what I’m talking about. Your charity will be wasted. A fish rots from the head down.

Rather use your money to stamp out corruption by bribing the government to do its job properly.

Be our Pied Piper leading these rats out of temptation, down the path of righteousness and into the promised land.

We want to fear no evil as we walk down the valley where Dr Death lives when he is not pretending to be a motivational speaker.

We want to lie down in green pastures and smoke them without fear of being arrested.

We want to be comforted by your rod and your staff, but we would rather you lost the rod. And make sure your staff are who they say they are. The Congolese are everywhere these days and they won’t hesitate to watch your car.

Call me. I am so looking forward to my cup running over.

  32. A GOOD WAY TO BUILD UP A NON- RACIAL BUSA AS SO ENVISIONED IS TO BUILD UP NEW ENTREPRENEURS FROM BOTH WHITE AND BLACKS BY MOLDING THEM IN A NON RACIAL ENVIRONMENT WITH A MUST POLICY “BE MY BROTHERS KEEPER” AND THEY MUST AT CERTAIN STAGE BE RESPONSIBLE TO UPLIFT AND TRAIN ANOTHER GENERATION FROM THE OPPOSITE RACE. FOR-INSTANCE IF YOU STARTED WITH 4(2 BLACKS AND 2 WHITES) THEY WILL INTEND UPLIFT 1 EACH WHICH MAKE 8, 16, 32 ETC ETC ETC AND IN ABOUT 10 YEARS YOU WILL HAVE ABOUT 100 MOTSEPE MILLINAIRES. A LEGACY THAT WILL NEVER END.

  34. Morning Mr Motsepe its Yonela Hlanganise here am a
    24 year old lady whose ruining an registerd NGO
    known as Kopanang maAfrica home base care at
    gauteng westrand in fochville we have been on this
    NGO since from 2012 our NGO its about a YOUTH
    centre and a child minders looking after abused childrens and the famirlys that has nothing for their
    livings am give childrens what they need we also
    doing sports soccer and netball with an assist of a
    fomer soccer player who used to be a soccer wits
    player and other teams he also did a coaching course
    level D… as we are the NGO members we are looking forward to help the community and those young
    innocent lives who needs our help but as we are the
    organisation we need your help so we can help
    those small childrens to get a better life so they can
    be somebody better 1 day..i strongly believe that true
    fulfillment in life happens when that little stomach is always full,sicknesses healed and opportunities that
    will improve the quality of our peoples lives created.I
    am happy when ordinary people ,who once relied on
    government grants,are creating their own destiny
    thus becoming the clients of the state.my target
    group are children living and working on the street ,the little angels (children) and the young
    people.Children living on the streets need our love
    and care,They are not on the street because of their
    own choices.According to my observation,the
    following are directly linked to this sad phenomenon:
    Povery,Abuse,Overcrowded families.Pertaining to my little angels,early childhood development should be
    strongly emphasize and supported by the state and
    relevent stakeholders.Young people are the future of
    every nation.the state with NGO’s must create
    training,jobs and bisiness opportunities thats what

You see sir I’m working at the moment for a franchise of coin in George and we all are about to lose our jobs because of the merging between Coin and Fidelity which leaves the franchises employees without jobs. The new owner a jong lady. which have took over from her father try het best to accommodate us but without enough resources and the right advise the company will be finished within the next two to three years if not less.This is where you sir come into the equation. You see me and one of my colleagues have seen the opportunity to help ourselves, other colleagues and the new young and optimistic owner as well as promoting BEE within the company which were never the case in the past with her father still incharged. So here is the story she still have a few clients left as well as the premises but still needed at least two armoured vehicles to provide a professional service to our clients. This was the main reason we’ve lost a lot of our loyal clients.She’s also optimistic that we can operate our own cashcentre but once again have the building and vault but what I believe still gonna need computers. Sir I want to close my letter to you by saying that I respect you as one of our country ‘s most vibrant and successful business man and truly hope that you don’t see this as someone looking for a handout I’m actually a very proud man who just trying to open another door where another have been shut closed for me and my colleagues.

  72. Dear Mr Motsepe

    Please allow me to implore you in assisting my son (who is also a Motsepe) in securing space in your club for the under 17 players. He is very talented but he is exposed to social problems affecting youth in South Africa. I have had to send him to a boarding school hoping to make him stay far away from the current environment until we as a family moves to a better place. He gives his all when he plays soccer and I am sure he will be an asset to your club. Please consider my request favourably and help me save this young Motsepe soul

  87. Hi sir

    My name is jochua valoi, a mozambican boy whom have been dreaming about studying in South Africa from 2007, in 2014 I made it a really vision. I came to south Africa from grade 10 then I continued here following a huge interview in grade 11, in 2015 I was doing grade 12, however back in 2014 I won a certificate of appreciation and a silver medal over rhino poaching debate held on 24 september 2014 in HLUVUKANI. I passed with a bachelor’s degree earlier this year and I registered in TSWANE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, MBOMBELA CAMPUS, with funding it was a problem since i had to travel to my country for scholarship but MOZAMBIQUE didn’t appreciate what I’ve done in South Africa, a south African sponsor decided to pay for my studies. The problem is the accommodation I am suffering, my parents are jobless in Mozambique, I’ve been pleading in people’s house to live there as long they give me food and I clean their yard.
    Now I don’t know what to do, would you help me, I don’t want to drop out the latest school. I know where I am going. My account number only have R1.40 left , I don’t know where to live, food is a problem. Please help me

  98. JOHANNESBURG – A group of students from the University of Johannesburg are expected to represent South Africa at the Enactus World Cup 2016 in Toronto Canada next month, in a bid to attract international sponsorship for two longstanding stakeholder engagement projects.

    A student team, comprising of 884 members, competed against 21 South African universities and impressed judges at the global NPO’s national competition last week.

    The group was lauded for an urban farming project and a project aimed to create entrepreneurial opportunities for refugees.

    The first project, Izindaba Zokudla (Conversations about Food), advocates specific approaches to urban agricultural development in Johannesburg. It draws on participatory research to build the capacity of farmers’ organisations; to facilitate engagement with food enterprises in the city; and to use design and technology development as a means to improve agricultural practices.

    The project not only markets urban farmers in Soweto but also increases the urban farmer’s opportunities for retail.

    Another focus is the refugee influx into economies.

    The team has designed a business model to secure a sustainable stream of income for foreign nationals in Johannesburg and Pretoria which they believe could curtail xenophobia and may be exploited in other global societies.

    Faculty advisor, Joyce Sibeko, who has been facilitating engagements since 2011, explains the objective behind the business development project.

    “Looting and xenophobia attacks on foreign nationals were some of the reasons for the Enactus UJ team to explore solutions to better the standard of living within our communities. Training on how to run small informal trading outlets were held in Gauteng. The team assisted foreign nationals with business plans that enabled them to generate start-up capital.”

    The group is in the process of raising funds for the trip. It is anticipated that at least 50 students will be part of the entourage.

    Sibeko adds, “Our students need transport money, food to go and do these projects. If they have to build prototypes to solve a problem, they need funding in order to do that. For instance, there were about 25 prototypes that were made and these can be manufactured and create even more jobs within the townships. So when we go to the competition we expose what the students are capable of.”

  99. Even if this would work but the way people keep asking really gives other impressions. Why don’t you work till you get somewhere?

  100. This is what happens when sarcasm flies over many heads…. The original post has a completely different tone from these comments.
