Info Bill turned against ANC

24 November 2011, 15:10

Dear Sir/Madam

 

It is the very act that the majority of ANC, has imposed on the nation has actually backfired on them, as they condemn the acts done by Wikipedia on their page.


It is said “do unto others as you would unto yourself” because whatever you do unto others will come back to you. The party has forgotten that the Wikipedia is the platform for the people to express their views without any inhibitions or interference from the government of any political structure, hence our political party has verbally declared the act as sabotage, but few days back they have voted for the Info Bill against the “protesting nation”.


The ANC spokesperson, Keith Khoza should have raised this issue first with his party, that “Interfering with information undermines the very need of [Information Providers]. Maybe he should understand that Freedom of Expression means the publication and distribution of information freely without any interference, as long it is true and factual.
