The EFF, our nation's future?

25 February 2014, 10:16
So here I sit, pondering life's finest and most shameful moments, and wondering about the political future of South Africa.

Julius Malema, along with his faithful sidekicks, has launched the Economic Freedom Fighters party.  And not a moment too soon it must be said.

No, not because I'm a fan or a member of this little upstart or his horde of followers, but rather because the EFF represent a picture, a picture of how this country could be, or rather what it should not become.

Reading through the disastrous policies of the EFF, it's clear that this new militant political party has not the foggiest idea of what the hell they're doing. 

The mere suggestion to nationalise all the mines and banks, and taking land without compensation, reeks of mass anarchy and civil unrest not seen since the 80s, or since the ANC's introduction of e-tolls.

If the EFF had stable policies that promoted business and employment creation, instead of taking from the have's to give to the have-not's, then I'd probably support them.

But as it stands, the EFF, in my mind, remains an organisation driven by racial revenge and as such, will never be a party that represents all South Africans.

One day, I could see myself donning a red beret with matching T-shirt covered in oil stains from a local fast food chicken outlet, but until then, I'll throw my lot in with those that actually care about South Africa.

Sorry Julius Malema, but you won't be getting my vote.  I hope that the SARS probe will end your dubious political ambitions before you have the opportunity to infect the vulnerable minds of South Africa's youth.  Lord knows that don't need more of your kind...
