IT’S OVER - CRIME AND POVERTY HAVE LOST THE WAR.CHRIS JOHANNES
At the rate things are going, within the next six months the crime rate in South Africa will be zero and 99% of South African citizens will have jobs.
This is according to a survey conducted by the National Media Research Congress (NMRC AMPS) based on the phenomenal decline of the crime rate, especially serious violent crime, and the steady increase in the rate of employment all across the country since the phenomenon known as Project H was released five years ago.
The survey found that in the six months to December last year the rate of employment skyrocketed from 82% to 92% of the country’s population of 33 million adults. That means that 3,3 million people became employed within a period of six months, the fastest upsurge of employment numbers anywhere in the world.
Researches say that if this trend continues unabated it will mean the complete eradication of crime and unemployment as early as six months from now, give or take a few weeks.
This trend of economic prosperity began when the now legendary Jasper King released his pioneering creation called Project H which has left an indelible mark on South African prosperity ever since.
Gangs call it quits.
This groundbreaking product was first introduced to gang members on the Cape Flats in an initial case study.
The facilitators noticed an immediate overnight improvement in the attitude and emotional well being of the gangsters.
They displayed much reduced aggression and even showed remarkable sympathy and compassion not only to the victims of gang violence but also to the members of rival gangs they were in heated conflict with as recent as a week prior.
Their transformation remained constant for many months causing the news of their conversion to spread like wildfire.
Three weeks later Project H was released to the kind of feverish nationwide public anticipation that not even the most anticipated Hollywood blockbuster release could hold a candle to.
Scattering the seeds of hope
Due to the extraordinary success of Project H its creator Jasper King had numerous Project H Academies set up all across the country in disadvantaged areas run by highly specialised facilitators providing free assistance to the unemployed and the unskilled.
The results of the academies were more remarkable than anyone could have ever imagined, inspiring millions of people to improve their lives and develop their passions and life long dreams into tangible, self-empowering skills.
South Africa’s general well being significantly improved when crime levels dropped dramatically resulting in the increase in investment into the country which started the ball rolling to significant economic prosperity and job creation.
Other good news is that literacy and education levels have improved exponentially in the past five years. Five years ago NMRC AMPS found that 14, 3% of South Africans had no high school education.
This figure has dropped to 0.5%. The adult literacy rate had increased from 94% to 99, 9% in the latest survey.
On the downside, however, a survey of the number of adults purchasing lottery tickets has decreased dramatically, from 56% five years ago to 10% - or 3, 3 million people.
