Illegal ANC Protests

27 February 2014, 12:37

Another illegal protest… this time in the Cape Town CBD.

I do agree with certain protests in the actual area where the service delivery issues have become unbearable.

It seems highly unlikely to me that this protest in the Cape Town CBD is completely non-ANC motivated seeing as though Cape Town has the best level of service delivery in the country, a world class and affordable public transport system, the implementation of a total debt write-off on outstanding interest on property tax for all low-income households until certain basic service delivery installations are met, the highest delivery of sanitation services in the country of which over 97% of people have access to and the lowest rate of unemployment in the country just to name a few achievements.

The ANC will undoubtedly deny that they are behind this protest.

Just like the time when angry self-proclaimed ANC supporters threw faeces on the steps they denied any involvement and instigation.

I suppose those brick and petrol bomb yielding masses, that interrupted the DA’s legal and peaceful march two weeks ago, wearing ANC regalia were also not part of the ANC.

A completely illegal and violent protest by clearly marked ANC supporters went unpunished and without facing any recourse whatsoever on February 12th. What would stop them from doing it again and again and again.

Why even apply for the right to march or protest, what’s the point? If you protest illegally nobody cares. Unless you’re an opposition party of course.

This protest in the Cape Town CBD looks like a smear campaign against the DA in Cape Town in a desperate attempt to overthrow the DA rule.

The ANC think that stomping their feet and throwing their faeces around in Cape Town will make people vote for them instead of the DA except they are forgetting that to make the DA look bad they would actually have to undo all the improvements and economic and infrastructural growth that has taken place in the Cape that has led to the Mother City being termed the “best run city in South Africa”.

I wonder what is going to happen to the illegal protesters. I suspect if they are ANC supporters….nothing.
