Copesville unrest reflects on ANC

26 April 2016, 07:09  - Karishma.Rampersadh

THE unrest in Copesville and the torching of a much-needed clinic which was struggled for, has exposed the ANC’s intransigence to the valid concerns of an impoverished community. The internal factionalism and power struggles resulted in our people being the casualty.

Simply, the ANC has no time for the public in need of long overdue service delivery and this unacceptable attitude is, to put it mildly, an insult, 21 years into our democracy. Casualties also echo the vacuum in the ruling party for there is a lack of strong leadership — Zuma’s weak leadership aggravates the sufferings in Copesville; the local cadres under the president’s umbrella merely prioritise party ahead of people and worsen poverty, resulting in anger.

Despite the unrest sounding the dissatisfaction of the people, it is business as usual in the ivory towers of the City Hall. Nothing has changed for the struggling people in Copesville since the 2014 uprising. The identical response is exploited by the ANC, where officials are dispatched to placate the irate community.

Under the DA, Msunduzi will benefit from strong interactive leadership where communities will not be neglected; a sense of belonging, empathy and trust will always be prioritised ahead of corruption and general malfeasance witnessed in the city. The Copesville tragedy now gives the electorate another good reason to punish the ANC at the ballot box. It’s only our residents that can Save Our City of Choice from falling apart.
