Short message from EFF ordinary member about EFF in Parliament

20 June 2014, 14:25

“If the ANC could speak of the apartheid government’s massacres at Sharpeville and Boipatong, why was it any less correct to speak of the ANC government’s massacre at Marikana?” asked one prominent South African.  Many comments were made about the manner in which EFF leaders behaved in Parliament but that one caught my attention because is purely truthful.  Same as when Osama Bin Laden was killed by US troops; it was Obama’s administration that took credit. So the government that controls the army and SAPS in case of South Africa must do the honourable thing and takes responsibility.

The CIC gave us a very simple statement which even some analysts couldn’t take it on, which is sad. He said when crime statistics goes down the ANC takes credit but they don’t claim responsibility when miners are killed. Bheki Cele and Nathi Mthethwa presented to Parliament that SAPS IS DOING A GOOD JOB when criminals who bomb ATMs are killed. Why is the Marikana case different?

I told you before that don’t ever doubt the CIC’s abilities and political talent and don’t mix it with a carpenter’s woodwork. He told you four years ago that Lindiwe Mazibuko of DA is just a tea girl to the madam not a politician who went through the hardship politicians normally go through. Today Zille herself with Lindiwe confirmed what Malema once said and Zille garnished on top with the fact that Lindiwe is nothing without her. That simply means once your job as tea girl ends, then you are no longer a politician, but the Zapiros of this world will continue to see the opposite. Same as what he said about the Guptas while still in the ANC. We are in parliament whether haters such as Steven Friedman and Jacob Zuma like it or not. I now begin to see what Prof Jansen at UOFS once said about Malema.

If we need real politics we must just wake up and smell the coffee. The EFF is here to make that Parliament functional. EFF member who will vote for you guys at any given time is impressed. Keep it up, job well done.
