Want to Save the Rhino? Don’t Listen to the “Save the Rhino” Organisations – Muzi Kuzwayo

How to Fix South AfricaMuzi Kuzwayo, one of the contributors to How to Fix South Africa: The country’s leading thinkers on what must be done to create jobs, edited by Ray Hartley, recently wrote an article for Fin24 about the rhino crisis in South Africa.

Kuzwayo begins the article by remembering anecdotes about animals that made an impression on him as a child. He thought that mistreating them was “cruelty of the worst kind”, until he witnessed unfairness against a person. He says: “That’s the problem animal rights activists will always face. Their cause will always be eclipsed by some bigger human cause”.

He suggest that in order to give animals such as rhinos proper care, humans need to be treated well, and vice versa.

Read the article:

South Africa would be best served if we didn’t get involved in this cultural warfare, which is hypocritical, unscientific and sentimental. Our country must quickly develop a viable and sustainable ­rhino horn industry that will help grow our ­economy and create employment.

Don’t listen to “Save the Rhino” organisations, because most are nothing but parasitic marketing groups that live in a symbiotic relationship with ignoble corporations prepared to pay a small fee to green-launder their questionable cash. They have the energy to fight, thanks to their full ­stomachs and Viagra.
