You say ANC or EFF, I say 6 of the one, half a dozen of the other

10 March 2014, 09:15

Young man/woman – disillusioned with the ANC – when you vote for the EFF, you are voting for the ANC – it’s all the same! Your vote will go into the ANC kitty – please educate yourself! I can explain it – but I want you to think for yourself!

I wish – like you – that we had a goddamn proper leader in this country to steer us through – what was always going to be – a massive challenge!! I have so much respect for the ANC as a liberation movement – as a political party under that z oke – eish - big, big fat FAIL. Even Desmond Tutu condemned the current government in no uncertain terms.

“During the struggle I think we were rather special. There was hardly anyone who would have said that they were in the struggle for self-aggrandisement; that they were looking for a reward. People were amazing in being so altruistic, so idealistic; committing themselves to freedom and saying that they were ready to lay down their lives. We imagined that this idealism and altruism would automatically carry over into the post-apartheid period.

But now one can point to so many instances of corruption, of unaccountability. Seeing how standards have dropped is so galling because it seems to give ammunition to those who would say: "We warned you that once you had a black majority government you would see a steady decline in standards."

Eyes open dudes!!! Don’t be fooled!
