Regret confirms a lack in leadership

13 June 2014, 09:11


The ANC is very concerned about its dwindling support amongst the black middle class in the country, which is very real, especially so in the metropolitan areas, which was reflected in the polls on the 07th May 2014.

If one looks at the voter tendency in Gauteng, the ANC in 2016 could be losing control over the Pretoria and Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipalities.

It is apparent though that healthy introspection on the side of the ANC would never be. The sentiment on their side is that the black middle class, owe their current and prevailing circumstances to the doing of the ANC. The ANC claims that this middle class only came about as a consequence of the progressive policy of the party. The rising of the black middle class is often though distorted from its context.

Only between 5% and 7% of black people form part of this class compared to the 70% white people.

The question is to what extent the ANC’s progressive policy attributes to it.

What is clear is that the ANC has failed to establish a reputable black middle class.

The handful of black people that are part of the middle class, have enough knowledge and insight to see that the ANC is as a matter of fact the real stumbling block to attain real and worthy economic growth.

These people expect, as all other South Africans to witness good and reliable service delivery for which taxpayer’s money is supposed to be used.

The ANC’s self introspection should rather focus on matters like economic growth and service delivery.

The fact that the ‘black middleclass’ is being blamed for the decline in the support for the ANC, shows without doubt that the political leadership in the ANC is conspicuously absent.
