Why ANC is afraid of Education

21 November 2012, 09:23

I can still see the images at the back of my head, the smiling Nelson Mandela with the words free education for all. 18 years into democracy and that has never materialized. I mean even Health get the nod before the 1994 resolution. NHI was tabled in Polokwane and the wheels are rolling already.

What is it that the ANC is Afraid of? I mean if Education was free until tertiary level it could have reduced unemployment level to 5 percent, with that come lot of benefits that country could have benefited like reducing crime rate by 90 percent. Saving on social grant and taxing more people. Oh ok there may be more cars and more roads to be build but that’s not a problem because SARS will be making a killing there. People will have more money to spend on economy and more people will be employed.

We should have become Germany after world War, I mean we had it all to become what we wanted, only if we invested in education. Investment in key strategically areas like farming, Information technology, Medicines, engineering and so forth could have made a lot of impact in this country. That does not need PHD to do that. I know it, you know it, and ANC knows it.

Oh wait, why something of so obvious was never been implemented? Is plain simple, When masses of people are educated they will start thinking straight. They will start thinking with facts. That’s not bad, but that’s bad for the movement that brought democracy in South Africa. It may not rule until Jesus comes back, because people will start reading party manifestos with understanding. People will laugh at you if you tell them they will lose old grants if you don’t vote for them.

All our problem lead to one solution, Investment in education and all the issues raised in National planning documents will be addressed. I know I’m going to be called all this sort of names like untie revolutionary, DA member and so forth, just like Reuel Khoza, Mamphele Ramphele and many more that are tried very hard to help this great movement (or once being great) to go back to the right path of helping and liberating millions of African.
