Malema Manifesto Disected

27 February 2014, 11:08

There were comments that were made on my previous post “Julius Malema’s Mickey Mouse Manifesto”.

I have taken into consideration everything people have said and some asked that I read the EFF Manifesto in full.

I have read through the entire manifesto and there are a few points I would like to make on some of the policies. Firstly, if you abolish the tender system because nothing will need to be outsourced that inevitably means that you are abolishing the entire skilled labour sector and there are a million obvious reasons as to why that is a bad idea and I’m sure all those reasons went unnoticed and even less likely were taken into consideration by the EFF.

The other points I would like to make are these:

Expropriation of land without compensation for equitable redistribution:

Here the EFF wants the state to transfer all land to the state and this should happen to all South Africans black and white and without compensation.

So anyone who has bought a house or a plot or any form of property ever in SA will have to just leave. Take their things and family and hamba! The state, Julius and his chommies, will then decide who the land goes to.

They say that the land will have to be developed but we also need to bear in mind that the same people who vote EFF aren’t inclined to investing in a shared future for all South Africans nor are they inclined to work for their possessions but would rather take from others with absolutely no reimbursement for their hard work. Land reform is crucial for this country HOWEVER the state must actively pursue partnerships and collaboration with stakeholders in the private sector to achieve shared goals. We must not take for granted that these stakeholders can make invaluable contributions to our economy. I find it hard to believe that the development of land under the EFF and its partisan policies will take priority over exploitation of land.

 Also I highly doubt people are going to just hand their land over without any form of compensation. The EFF has been very vocal about using any means necessary, so basically we are going to have a full scale national war when it is time for this to be implemented so start stocking up on ammunition people, the EFF have started gathering their spears which even appears in their logo. The EFF is looking less and less like a party motivated by Peace and the values of Ubuntu.

Nationalisation of mines, banks and other strategic sectors of the economy:

So basically the EFF want control of everything.

Julius will have control of everything which really just seems like an incredibly easy way for him to create a golden castle for himself with all the spoils of the land at his fingertips!

This is starting to sound more and more like a Zim scenario….Mogabe is of course at the end of the day Malema’s idol.

I wish these die hard EFF supporters will go live in Zim for a month (yes, that’s all the time they’ll need) and come back and tell us how it was and how well the agricultural and economic growth and job creation is going there. I have many friends who have fled here from Zim, black and white, and I can tell you exactly how things are going up there….but I will leave that for another post. If you’re an EFF supporter reading this I would like to say something to you: I have done my bit by reading the EFF manifesto so how about you go and find a Zimbabwean National and ask him or her how their country is doing and tell us? Because I will tell you right now your leader is following in those footsteps!
