The ANC, ANCYL and ANCWL taking us back to Apartheid on the FNB ad

22 January 2013, 15:10

The Anc’s intolerance of criticism and negative reviews has again resurfaced, trampling anyone who dares say anything that might impact negatively against the Anc-led government. 

The Anc, AncYL and AncWL have come out blazing like in the days of apartheid where the apartheid officials would want to squash and destroy anything contrary to the government. The Anc came out to squash the FNB for its advert campaign on what the FNB calls “You Can Help” campaign. 

The Advert is of a girl giving a speech on the grounds of the historical Naledi High school. She brings forth the thoughts of Young people and their look at their prospects for the future but also their concerns for the present and the challenges they face. She gives a speech of hope but, yet touching on the very aspects that the young people are faced with on the daily basis. She talks of illiteracy, greed, corruption and hopelessness in young people and our communities. These are the aspects that the Anc ran government wants to hide and keep a secret from the people of South Africa. They want a clear cut perfect picture to be presented which hides the continuous looting of state coffers, lack of service delivery and the poor education system the Anc brands as a success. 

The advert captures the thoughts of young people surveyed across the country about how they see the country and how they see their future and the issues that impacts their lives on the daily lives. The youth voiced-out issues that are a reality to them and the FNB brought those thought to all South Africa that we can help one another and tackle them for the betterment of the future of the country. 

This is not what the ANC sees or wants. Instead the Anc has chosen the path that emulates that of their predecessors in the apartheid regime by labeling and name calling anyone who has opposing views to that they represent. The apartheid government called anyone who was opposed to their regime as ‘treasonous’ and the same way, the AncYL has stooped at the apartheid level and is calling everyone who is giving light to the government failures ‘treasonous’ and removing their right to freely express themselves. These are the same reason why the Archbishop Desmond Tutu came to the conclusion that the Anc is worse than apartheid. 

The FNB advert speaks on point. Young people in South Africa are currently living under calamitous circumstances; they are receiving the worst standard of education (from the AncWL president); they face a bleak future of unemployment and poverty: they get the worse service delivery if any is given at all; and the Anc cadres continue to loot government coffers at will to benefit themselves while the people of South Africa continue to starve. If the Anc care, why doesn’t it want the people of South Africa come together and help? What do they have to hide? 

The Congress of the People Youth Movement share the same sentiments with FNB and continues with its call that it is time that South Africans unite to fight for the better future of our country,. The Anc has shown that it does not share the same vision with its people. They do not want to listen, even when the youth of the country is speaking and voicing out their frustrations.  

South Africans need a government that will listen to every voice, critic and its young to build a collective better future. We need to Stand together and build a country where all can share its benefits, a country where its young are free to get the best government built education, a foundation to a bright future for our country.
