The DA in a Mission to cannibalise the women lead political parties, can Zanele ka-Magwaza-Msibi survive?
For how long will the National Freedom Party and its leader Zanele ka -Magwaza Msibi resist the charm of Democratic Alliance and its leader, Helen Zille?
I ask this question citing the strategy employed by the Democratic Alliance. They (DA) are on the mission to cannibalise all the parties that are lead by women. The question that desires some answers is that of, for how long will the NFP stay or contest elections without forming party collision as it seems to be the way to fight the giant ANC.
The politics of party collision does not serve the principles of democracy, or is it time for South Africa to move towards two party state where only two parties contest the elections? Maybe then if our democracy has matured to that level, perhaps the National President can also be voted by Citizens not by the parties he represent. I say this because many parties they feel it is important to join forces and fight with one voice against the ANC. We have seen Cope and Freedom Front Plus and other parties who have forge the similar strategy. Maybe the Inkatha Freedom Party also wants to do the same with Economic Freedom Fighters. For how long the romance will last in this marriages? I guess there is nothing wrong about that, but the big question is that where are we heading as country? What is the future defined by collisions?
As elections are getting closer by the day, I guess the people will define the future by making their choices on what seems to be party of collisions or the party is currently running the government. Maybe one last question is that of the current marriage, will Agang SA members be voting the DA and DA members voting Agang SA and ID members will be spoiled for choice of voting either ID, DA or Agang SA? I yet to see such interesting politics of our time.
