ANC's white gevaar

12 June 2014, 19:45


Gwede Mantashe, the Secretary General of the African National Congress, owe South Africans an explanation over the ‘white gevaar and foreigners’ whom has a political agenda to drive the platinum strike, and in so doing destabilizing the economy of South Africa, as he remarked in an earlier statement.

Mantashe can’t leave his statement ‘hanging in the air’ without explaining on it. If such a ‘gevaar and foreigners’ do exist, it is a serious matter which had to be investigated.

Surely it can’t be Live Shange, the Swedish socialist of the Wasp-party. That would be ludicrous to say the least.

If Mantashe doesn’t elaborate on his statement one can safely say that he is falling back on the tactics which the ANC learnt from the Nats in the past.

That is to blame the ‘red gevaar’ – in this instance the white gevaar and foreigners’ when you don’t have any answers in a situation.

The country is on the brink of a recession after the AMCU strike that started on the 23rd January 2014 at the platinum mines in the North West Province.

Ngoako Ramatlhodi, the new Minister of Mineral Resources, jumped into the situation, very eagerly to end it, but then on Saturday announced that he and his department was going to withdraw from the negotiations and that AMCU and the mine bosses must find a solution to the problem.

This ironically co-incided with Mantashe’s remark at an ANC meeting that warned Ramatlhodi to be very cautious in his role within the ambit of the strike and the wage dispute that is prevalent.

Mantashe stated two reasons for it: the involvement of Julius Malema’s EFF and the ‘white gevaar and foreigners’.  The ANC government is in no position to just ‘wash their hands’ in this instance.

The strike has become something of national interest and affects everybody in the country. There are only two conclusions in the strike. Either the mineworkers return to work or the mines would start closing down its shafts which it has already stated as an option being currently considered.

In this situation the ANC government has no alternative but to be involved. Pressure must be applied on the strikers and the mines to find a solution forthwith.
