Talking about what happened 20 years ago won’t help – ACDP

2014-03-22 09:08

South Africa needs to stop talking about a strong opposition and rather start talking about replacing government, the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) has said.

“If we want to have a better South Africa, talking about what happened 20 years ago is not going to provide jobs,” the party said yesterday.

People must not vote out of loyalty to a party, but must consider the best option to give them hope for a better future.

ACDP leader Kenneth Meshoe, speaking to supporters in KwaMakhutha in Amanzimtoti yesterday, Human Rights Day, accused the ANC of failing to fight corruption.

This impacted upon people’s human rights as it robbed them of vital services.

The government was also not dealing with issues like human and drug trafficking, and drug addiction with many officials on the pay roll of “gangsters”.

The ACDP said: “Gangs are targeting young children and robbing them of their safety, security and hope for a future.

“How can pupils concentrate when there are gun shots outside their class rooms, when they are being recruited by gangs?”

Meshoe said if there were ever allegations of ACDP public office bearers being on the pay roll of criminals, they would be investigated, and if found guilty, fired and handed over to the police.

South Africans needed to roll up their sleeves and work hard to start building the government South Africa so desperately needed and desired.
