EFF, IFP agreement. Classic clowning

22 January 2014, 09:25

One cannot help but notice and air views on the agreement that has been reached between the Inkatha Freedom Party and the economic freedom fighters, dubbed the expelled frustrated fools by the majority of South African.

Apparently the agreement which has supposedly been reached between these two parties is not formed on the basis of any ideological agreements or at the very least, ideological similarities or even any shared vision of the future of this country and its people.

This thus renders this new so called agreement or an alliance if you like, a clownish alliance. It shows that the Inkatha Freedom Party and their new found friends, the economic freedom fighters (expelled frustrated fools) are politically and ideologically confused groups of individuals, who organized themselves into political parties, not with the interest of serving south Africans in general and the poor in particular but with the sole intention of self-accumulation, and the protection of their own interests.

It is indeed very strange that political parties which differ so much in terms of the visions each possess for the country as well as the founding values, as it is the case between the Inkatha Freedom Party and the Economic Freedom Fighters, would suddenly come out in public and pronounce that regardless of all these fundamental political and ideological differences, they will in the process of each party’s electioneering, ensure that they do not de-campaign each other but protect each other.

This thus proves to be correct, the assertion that the IFP&EFF alliance is definitely not an alliance of purpose, an alliance formed in the best interest for all of us South Africans, moving forward. Rather it is an alliance of convenience, formed in the best interest of those who head these political organisations.

Be that as it may, one must also state that such a useless alliance between the Economic Freedom Fighters and the Inkatha Freedom Party is formed out of serious desperation to try and topple the ANC government during these up-coming elections, for, they see the African National Congress as a hindrance to the looting and plundering of resources that would take place as soon as they take over the governing responsibility that the ANC is charged with by the masses, if ever they are given the responsibility of governing this country by south Africans.

The people of the republic of South Africa in general and particularly the constituencies of these political parties now must be aware that these two political parties do not have their collective interests as citizens.

But rather have at hears the interest of their founding leaders, their cronies and stooges.

These two political parties do not take South Africans serious and I doubt they will in the near future.

We as South Africans now have a collective responsibility of isolating these two political parties and ensuring that we vote correctly come the upcoming national general elections and not vote for anyone who thinks south Africans are politically and ideologically inept and ought not be taken seriously.

We have got a responsibility to isolate such tendencies moving forwad.

Dear Vanessa: who is African?

Sorry to rain on your parade. I won’t take much of your time. I’m sure you have more important things to muse over than some silly drivel from a black man. Now I’m going to ask a few questions that might just sound plain silly – or unwise. That shouldn’t surprise you, seeing that you think my type is reckless anyway. Read more...
