Nothing revolutionary about ANC - Shivambu

2014-04-25 20:27
Durban - Economic Freedom Fighters political commissar Floyd Shivambu accused the ANC on Friday of serving the interests of individuals.

Shivambu, speaking at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, said: "The ANC is an association of self-seeking individuals. It does not exist as an organisation."

He said the ANC could not claim to be heading up a national democratic revolution.

"There is nothing revolutionary about the ANC. Conditions of the working class have not been improved since 1994."

The ANC had failed to recognise what the former ANC Youth League leaders had been seeking to achieve, which was economic freedom.

He said the party's acceptance of free trade and the elimination of trade tariffs had cost the country.

"How are we going to create jobs, when we have such low tariffs."

Shivambu said the fact that South Africa had become a net food importer meant there were no jobs. It was time for civil society and parties to come together to transform the country.
