The ANC: Compromised voters
ANC was not the only party in existence but it was the quickest to go to the table to negotiation. I wonder why. If you are also wondering why then look at when Motsepe, Ramaphosa began their road to riches; continue on to look for the Steyn and Nelson Mandela relations and lastly look up who is Sol Kerzner.
Moving on, all that the ANC has done is basic service per any incumbent governing body. but what makes them outstanding or be one of a kind regarding their governance and improving the lives of the impoverished. THEY speak of Job creation; What is job creation when the standard of living outweighs the income of the worker? the job opportunity amounts to nothing. THEY speak of Free education; Per their definition that is a Loan from tax payer's money of which you ought to pay back with one of the highest interest rates. THEY speak of Housing and shelter; Take any 4 room house that was built in townships such as Soweto (Gauteng), Mdantsane (Eastern Cape) etc and compare them with any RDP house. Which is of high quality? you tell me. THEY speak of land belonging to all who live in it then I would ask how much land do you people on this status own and how beneficiary is that land to you, your family, your community and your future household?
I will not be ignorant nor arrogant and say ANC led Government did nothing but one thing I will tell, nothing they did was cutting edge or made South Africa a state to be reckoned with. As a matter of effect they just rode on the wave of the stable economy of the Apartheid regime and now as the years go by the state's economy is deteriorating. In my concluding statement, the ANC has led the country for 20 odd year but they have been 10% close to what Thomas Sankara's government did for Bukina Faso in only 4 years.?#?Look_Him_Up? and see for yourselves how Pan Africanist governance is like and not big church politics. I rest my case.
