The ANC ‘acting in bad faith!’

03 July 2014, 08:56


Debates in parliament are hardly civil, and in most of the times, brings out the bad in people with the rudest comments made.

Comments such as the ones made by the late Helen Suzman, now quiet.

How vividly do we remember the time when Tony Leon was in parliament, and how the comments of the chief whip of the ANC at the time, Mbulelo Goniwe, drove Leon up the walls.

Leon asked and posed questions in parliament as to the promises of the ANC to deliver on the housing and to eradicate crime, to which Goniwe replied: ‘Something that the DA must not forget, is that they can be thankful that the ANC showed them compassion and did not follow the route of the Neurenberg trials, as all of them would have been in jail because of the injustices of apartheid, where you would have rotten.’

Goniwe insulted the DA members in parliamentary, and some of them even walked out at the time.

But when Minister Linidiwe Sisulu stopped to toilet politics with her comments of Mmusi Maimane’s rise in Parliament, she dragged the Sisulu name through the mud, and stooped so low that she was scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

Even Julius Malema sounds more intelligent.

In her reference to Maimane she sees him as the ‘hired black help’ to ‘madam’ Helen Zille and the ‘black trade mark article’ and as such transcends deeply into the ANC’s collective spine – and that is the inability of some of the ANC members to make peace with their ‘inner black heritage’ as well.

They are still prisoners of a colonial ‘boss-servant’ paradigm, as they can’t get rid of the chains of racial indoctrination and are not capable to reconcile with the context of freedom of association.

Stone Sizane even went further by labeling Maimane as the DA’s ‘poster boy’

The persona of the previous Lindiwe Mazibuko and now Maimane has become the political battlefield of the ANC with the DA.

Incidentally, if there were to be a ‘madam’ Sisulu fits the bill like a glove, wearing designer clothes and having people carrying her bags and luggage wherever she goes.

If Zille is not a ‘tea girl’ or ‘lesbian’ then she has to be a ‘madam’ that has to be portrayed as one or other creature that would fit in with the ANC’s pre-colonial mentality.

To insult black and white supporters of liberal tradition, are bad, and the ANC grasping the straws, that it only knows – that of division and govern which they learnt from the masters of apartheid – makes it so much more worse.

But most of South Africans have moved on, and now feel free to belong to any political party and to join it, we are now free to free ourselves of the harness of conformism, and we are also free to destruct ourselves.

And with its supremacy of race comments, the ANC is well on the way to destroy this once beautiful country of ours and that is a fact!

No other party has rallied its support so successfully around race and ethniticity as the ANC!

Representatives, the like of Jimmy Manyi, and others used, sowed and cultivated dividing policy statement of race and ethniticity in its election campaign, but this is a very dangerous tactic, as we saw what it could cause to happen in the xenophobia attacks of years ago.

It also shows a lack of the ability to negotiate a matter, to see and know the facts of the matter, and to accept people for whom and what they are.

The propaganda during the election campaign by the ANC that the DA would bring back apartheid, found substance in the townships.

And this is something that the DA would have to fight at all levels, not like the ANC using the race card so vehemently.
