Lambasting the black middle class.

10 June 2014, 12:12

It is indeed a sad state of affairs to see and hear how the government of the day, is now lambasting the black middle class in South Africa, and basically blaming them that they have forgotten the role that the ANC has played in their better prevailing position that they find themselves in the South African society.

This being as a consequence to the loss of support that the ANC had in the metropolitan areas in the elections 2014 for which it now blames the black middle class.

The ANC in its statement where it is blaming their loss in support due to the black middle class, categorically states that their prevailing position that they find themselves in is all because of the ANC and nothing else.

They therefore through innuendo want all the credit to everything that has happened in the country, whereas the ruling government is really only administering the role of caretaker of the constitution and administering the fiscus in terms of the available resources.

Currently as is known, the unem0ployment amongst youths in the country stands at 33% which is indicative of the black middle class. Instead of creating work opportunities for the people that you are governing you elect to blame them rather than accept responsibility for your own shortcomings that you as government has.

Do the black middle class have to continue to be gullible to your empty promises, or are they educated to reason that the government does not hold the answer to solve the worsening situation that we find ourselves in!

Freedom of choice, freedom of belonging to a political party of your own choice being guaranteed in the constitution, so no one can be forced to vote for something that doesn’t work.

And that is the facts of the matter
