A racist open letter to EFF

02 June 2014, 05:00
Being a black person in South Africa or perhaps all over the world does not have many perks. Due to historical events, you will always start off as second best.

However, one of the few advantages of being Black is that you cannot be accused of being racist. Especially not black on black.

So let me write an open letter not only to the fat boy Malema but also to his partners in crime Floyd, Mngxitama, Mpofu as well as Every Fool Following (EFF) this joke of a party. 

We all know that the EFF was formed out of anger and spite of Dr. Zuma. Their mere existence and entire campaign was mocking the President. I would like to know how long you will use this anti-Zuma tactic to stay relevant?

Dr. Zuma is serving his last term in office,so the question lingers...who will be your next ANC scapegoat to help you mislead a million more South Africans? You better answer this question quickly before you are unable to "COPE" in this political game.

Now this letter wants answers from the self proclaimed son of the people, the racist Mngxitama as well as all the relevant leaders of the EFF. The questions that I ask have been developed after I looked at your hideous manifesto and promises to the people.

You claim that to want to double social grants.

I may be just a law student but logic dictates to me that this would not be economically viable. If you are telling me that I would get R400 for each baby I make, what would stop me from making 10 babies and getting a fat R4000 salary at the end of the month without breaking a sweat? This would substantially increase the amount of people on social grants and inevitably cause the social grant system to fail. However, I am open-minded and would allow EFF members to explain this to me.

Secondly, the free education at university level. This sounds very appealing. So what you are saying is that if I get admitted into university the state will pay all my fees, accommodation and allowance for free without ever giving a cent back? This will not be viable in the long run.

If we keep taking and taking from the state funds, what will be left for our younger brothers and sisters when they reach university level? As it is, there is a major shortage of funds as witnessed by the DUT strike. So once again I wait upon a response from the EFF.

There are plenty of questionable things that the EFF promised our people in their campaign, but I will not divulge in all of them.

However, the last one I would like to tackle is that of Nationalisation of land and mines. This is very good for Black South Africans. However I would like to know how will we benefit from this? How will the ordinary person in the townships of Soweto, Alex, Umlazi, Khayelitsha who have probably never farmed or have no knowledge in mining benefit from this? Who determines who gets land and what is the criteria?

The gradual approach taken by ANC is one of fairness because no ones fundamental rights are being infringed yet the rightful owners are getting land back. 

Do not misunderstand me. I am not against nationalization. I simply need an elucidation as to the procedures that will lead this ideal. According to my knowledge, it has never successfully worked anywhere in the world. So for the last time I would like the leaders and members of EFF to answer me as to how they will go about carrying out their promises.

All I see from the EFF now are promises made in order to get them to Parliament. As soon as the elections were over, a bit of anarchy broke out in Alex. The Malema's were no longer there to fight and die for their people. Instead he called a press briefing in a comfortable conference room to tell his people to stop. 

A wise man once said "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me". So with this said I say shame on all of you EFF voters. You have been fooled once again. Malema and company now have a guaranteed monthly salary of R40 000 as MP's while you continue to suffer in your shacks.

All the stunts of wearing overalls in Parliament are to give the illusion that they care about you. They will say ridiculous things in Parliament because they know they cannot be held accountable as they are not in government. 

So to Santa Clause Malema, Mngxitama, Mpofu, Floyd, Sentletse and all the other elf's, I am not hard to find in answering the above set of questions. You can find me @Adv_Makhanya on twitter. I will be awaiting your response. I will even remind you that I am waiting so I can write an article to congratulate you as I would have been satisfied that you are not Santa Clauses and clowns.
