A couple of articles have appeared on this blog regarding the increasing desperation to get the funds together for the “Ideal Joburg North Org”, including the ED admitting to donating R2 Million by bonding his personal property.
One of our correspondents forwarded this bulk text message sent out by Brenda Petrie (Joburg org OT Committee Member and wife of ED Joburg FDN). The message was sent out before the fundraiser that was to be held this past Saturday.
A note should be made here, and that is that Brenda is normally an extremely mild-mannered, friendly and polite person. For her to send out such a message communicates just how desperate things are.
“…Did you know?.. Its always the SAME people at fund raisers? Is this RIGHT? This is YOUR group. YOUR future. Please support our Ideal Org strat. Have a nice dinner. Be entertained. And IF you can..Donate. This is for all three orgs DONE (to you, sir COB) in GAUTENG. And towards an AO on SA soil!!…You can’t not-is that!! Please join us in the Chapel on Sat night. Ml Brenda Jhb OTC..Please respond Yes/No”
This message speaks volumes. One major difference is that there are even fewer of the SAME faces around after the massacre of some 30 former big spenders and/or movers & shakers that were heavily relied upon in the past.
The rest of the public not attending these events are either staying away in quiet protest, or are just plain worn out.
This should send a message loud and clear to those in charge – but will it ever be heard?
