SA Jagters Nuusbriewe

It is already February 2019 with January something of the past. Large parts of the country are affected by the drought. We are thinking of all those people in the western part of the country that have to deal with very difficult circumstances. We are grateful for the good rains that fell over certain areas over the weekend.

Hier is ons reeds aan die begin van Februarie 2019. Januarie is op sy rug en iets van die verlede. Groot dele van RSA gaan steeds gebuk onder ernstige droogte. Ons harte gaan uit na die inwoners aan die westelike deel van die land waar dit baie moeilik gaan. Gelukkig was daar in verlede week en oor die naweek klompie plekke waar daar redelike goeie reën geval het. Ons is dankbaar daarvoor.

So kom ons aan die einde van nog ʼn jaar; ʼn taamlike “deurmekaar jaar”. `n Jaar waarin die konstitusionele hof `n ietwat kontroversiële uitspraak teen SA Jagters gegee het, `n jaar vol hofaansoeke deur verskeie instansies teen die Minister van Polisie en kie, `n jaar waartydens brandstofpryse drasties gestyg het, `n jaar waarin die land verneem het dat grondonteiening sonder vergoeding in Suid Afrika `n moontlikheid is, `n jaar waarin die vuurwapenlisensies oor die laaste maand of so sommer lukraak afgekeur word. Genoeg om enige mens negatief te stem!

We are at the end of yet another year; it was quite a chaotic year. It was a year in which the Constitutional Court handed down a somewhat controversial judgement against SA Hunters; a year of court applications by various institutions against the Minister of Police and co; a year of escalating fuel prices; a year in which land restitution without remuneration in South Africa has become a probability; a year of turning down firearm licence applications randomly. Certainly, more than our fair share of negative news!
