Just 1 000 pitch for Cape May Day rally

2011-05-01 22:14

Cape Town - Criticism of the Democratic Alliance and the media featured strongly in speeches at the Congress of South African Trade Unions May Day rally in the Athlone Stadium here on Sunday.

Present at the rally were African National Congress president Jacob Zuma, Cape Town’s ANC mayoral candidate Tony Ehrenreich, SA Communist Party (SACP) secretary general Blade Nzimande as well as several ministers.

A low turnout of just more than 1 000 people at the 40 000-seater stadium did not seem to worry the speakers who took to the stage and condemned the DA for not doing enough for the poor people living in Cape Town.

Ehrenreich said the DA failed to provide proper public transport, health and education facilities for the poor.

The DA had in fact built them open air toilets, while the party took care of the rich, he said.

As mayor if the ANC won the upcoming local government election, he said he would ensure better health, education and housing in places like Khayelitsha, Mitchells Plain and Gugulethu.

He also promised to build houses for the poor in Constantia should the ANC win.

Challenges

"The first thing to do is build homes for our people in Constantia where government owns land," he said to cheers from the crowd.

While the ANC was aware of the gap between the promises in the Freedom Charter and what was actually being done, the party had "done much for the people" and would continue to do so, he said.

He added that the ANC will win Cape Town and declare it a “decent work city”.

Nzimande agreed that the ANC would win Cape Town on May 18 and accused the opposition and the media of working together against the ANC.

He said the good that the ANC did was never written about instead the “bosses and their media” spread messages of “despair”.

“Yes there are many challenges… but the capitalist bosses and their media want us to lose trust in our vote and hope in our democracy.

“They want us lose confidence in the government we’ve voted for.”

Divide alliance

Nzimande said the “bosses and their media” also continually tried to get Cosatu or the SACP to fight elections on their own because “they” wanted to divide majority power.

“Everytime we have an election, there is a whole media industry that clicks into action, supporting anything that is anti-ANC, anti-alliance.”

He described the DA as “two stooges and a madam” and urged people not to take them seriously as Cape Town was “the most unequal city” in the country.

It’s a city where the “rich are very rich and the majority are poor”.

Nzimande went on to urge people to vote for the ANC to place the economy onto a new job-creating growth path.

He said the new national growth path and industrial policy action plan would ensure a focus on job creation, decent work and sustainable livelihoods.

New beginning

Zuma, who spoke to a much smaller audience as many people began to trickle out of the stadium by late afternoon, said that election provided an opportunity for the people of Cape Town and the province to make a new beginning.

“The elections provide an opportunity to make new choices that will take the province back to its proud non-racial and inclusive Congress tradition.

"This we can do by giving the ANC an overwhelming majority that would make it impossible for other parties to repeat what they did in the past, of ganging up against the ANC in Cape Town and the Western Cape.

“On the 18th of May, we must declare that the time has come to free Cape Town and the Western Cape.”

Zuma said the ANC had done much in terms of job creation, housing, education and of providing water and electricity to the poor, but he said the party was aware that much more needed to be done.

He said Cape Town was also a priority for the party and promised development in all sectors.

Alliance

Zuma also assured that the alliance was strong and unified.

He said Workers' Day was a celebration of the alliance between the national liberation movement the ANC, the trade union movement and the vanguard of the working class, the SACP.

“The three components of the alliance work together in a special relationship, aimed at liberating our people initially from apartheid and colonial oppression, and from poverty, deprivation and general underdevelopment.

“We reaffirm this alliance, and commit ourselves to continue working together… On this day we renew our call for the unity of the Alliance, which was forged in struggle.”

Zuma also introduced 13 new members to the ANC from other political parties.

One of whom was the leader of the Twelve Apostles Church in Cape Town and a former member of the United Democratic Movement, Dumisani Ximbi.

Zuma said Ximbi’s followers at church, which numbered one million, were sure to follow him to the ANC and vote for the party on May 18.

Zuma, who had been in Cape Town since Saturday campaigning ahead of the local government election, would return to the city before May 18, spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said.

      Creeky - 2011-05-01 23:51

      Wonder what happened to the other 39 000???? Think they have had enough BULLSH!T from the ANC...??? Certainly looks like it! Now Zuma is relying on one person from a church to bring in the voters... did he promise him a "JAWB" in the Provincial Govt, should the ANC win (haha)???? ANC are STUFFED... they have "COOKED THEIR GOOSE"... you can fool SOME of the people SOME of the time.... but you CANNOT FOOL ALL the people ALL the time!

      Can anyone help me get some of the stuff that Blade is smoking? Blade, you are not a prophet as can be seen from your comments and neither are you Zuma. Zuma does that church you visited believe in the Seventh Commandment (Thou shall not commit adultery) and the Eighth (Thou shall not steal) and the Third (Thou shall not take the Lord's name in vain). To the church, maybe you should go and read Micah where the Lord warned Israel that they must not pay the priests to say what they want to hear, but that the leaders of the church must tell the people what they MUST hear. (Blade, you are a Minister of Higher Education? I rest my case!)

      BigMoose - 2011-05-02 08:57

      May Day! May Day! This is the ANC Western Cape. We have an emergency! Our ship is sinking, our plane is crashing. Help! May Day! T-shirts, chiiiicken! ANC membership cards, two for the price of one. Free houses, free water, free electricity! Free toilets! T-shirts, chiiicken!

      I agree!!!!! Stupid with capital letters. I guess he forgot to mention the squalor the rest of the country under his watch is living in Now he concentrates on one issue in Cape Town while the rest don't even have toilets never mind zink enclosures.

      RealSouthAfrican - 2011-05-01 22:52

      They probably knew it would only get 1000 people to come. So, instead they say we are moving because the racists dont want us there. Typical ANC rhetoric. Throw insults, accuse people of racism. They have NOTHING else to go on.

      Achmed - 2011-05-01 23:09

      Still ROFLMAO. They could have fitted the 1000 on an open toilet area for free. That way could also get the sh1t they spoke flushed. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

      Francois - 2011-05-02 08:15

      Nio they baulked because their prophet Blade usually turns out with the wrong predictions. They knew that they were going to have only 1000 people then even at R 300k for the stadium, it would have turned the attendees into rich people (to pay R 300 to listen to this nonsense syas you are rich AND stupid). Thus I think Tony owe Helen an apology - he represents people that can pay R 300 to listen to kak, where Helen represent people who cannot pay R 300 to watch the Stormers play rugby or Ajax play soccer.

      If that would have helped to keep the ANC away from Western Cape, I'd say that was money well spent

      1 million followers, but he could not even get 1 000 to the stadium. The 1000 that were there, were probably Zuma's wives, girlfriends, mistresses, children, family security guards, and loss kinders flown into Cape Town with their free flights paid for by the tax-payers.......@$$holes........

      v3 - 2011-05-01 23:16

      " All you have on your little brain is an open toilet." That's because they talk cr@p all the time. The 39,000 empty seats belonged to voters who see through these lying frauds.

  • John - 2011-05-01 22:54

    Just 1 000 ? That's because the ANC and their showerhead leader is not welcome in Cape Town. Go DA!!

      Martin du Plessis - 2011-05-01 23:04

      And half of them left before zuma spoke, did you notice? Prob thought they were watching reruns of previous ANC speeches that never got delivered upon.

  • noble - 2011-05-01 23:00

    So why trying so hard to win the one province you do not have. It seems to go better there than in all other provinces, including mine Mpumalanga. Maybe if you start really concentrating on delivery of services and not constantly quibbling about noncence things might be better. Now let me see ..... another 20 years of rule by the ANC, or will it be less. Seems like the more educated the masses become the less they vote for the ANC, or am I wrong

      Dave Robbins - 2011-05-02 08:37

      I reside in the Eastern Cape BUT my car is still registered in Cape Town, and when I need to renew my drivers licence, I will ensure that I do the paperwork in the Western Cape. I recently had a problem with an account for my property in the Overstrand - sorted out with a phonecall. All these areas are DA run - here we have been battling for 4 months to get an electricity bill to reflect the correct info (ever seen VAT make up 88% of your bill?) Things get sorted out quicker, easier and more efficiently in the Western Cape - I would advise all voters to seriously think of service delivery before listening to hot-air sprouting politicians.

  • Jason - 2011-05-01 23:02

    LOL, the turn out speaks for itself.. if you not delivering in the other provinces how can you come and condemn the best run province of not doing enough. ANC need to up there game, the people of the Cape have a taste of what has been offered from the DA and don't want to regress to what they had before... Good on the people to show support for leaders who care.

  • braveinternetguy - 2011-05-01 23:31

    It would be super funny if all 1000 were actually bussed in! I'm not saying they were, it's just a funny thought.

      Steve - 2011-05-02 17:13

      I don't think it a "funny" thought at all. I agree with you 100%. The probably used SA Roadlink to bus them in but the other busses did not make the finishing line in time, or they broke down somewhere. 1000 are the only ones that made it. Then they had to leave early so that they could catch the bus home after recieving their KFC pack.

  • braveinternetguy - 2011-05-01 23:41

    The ANC's ENTIRE CAMPAIGN rests on the empty allegation that their opposition is going to BRING BACK APARTHEID. This is, of course, utterly silly. The ANC is SO DESPERATE that they would openly, plainly, blatantly LIE...of course knowing that there are a lot of people uneducated enough to believe it. The ANC knows that, under a CAPABLE GOVERNMENT, Sout Africa will skyrocket. South Africa will become THE country to be in business with. It will be THE place to visit. The ANC knows that under a strong, trustworthy, dynamic government, South Africa will blossom. The ANC is SHIT SCARED, because it's dawning on them that their time in the pound seats, is drawing to an end. SOUTH AFRICA WILL NOT ROT! CLEAN UP THE FILTH! VOTE THE ANC AWAY TO MAKE SOUTH AFRICA A BETTER PLACE!

      Creeky - 2011-05-01 23:57

      Lets hope that when the DA takes over the country, they WILL put the ANC ELITE on TRIAL.... find out what happened to the missing Trillions... Find those who "ENRICHED THEMSELVES" ILLEGALLY!!!! That is the ANC's BIGGEST FEAR!!!!!!!

      OuWitBooi - 2011-05-02 00:28

      @Creeky - Absolutely right! There are already some terrified concillors in Durban, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, Potchefstroom and others where there is a good chance that there will be a change of government. When the books are opened and properly audited the s#1t is going to fly.

      Ogre - 2011-05-02 00:31

      @Creeky. Not much chance of that happening. Can you imagine the rush to book flights and private charters to non extradition countries by the ANC top brass and their cronies when they no longer control SA. Get in on the action and buy shares in my no-questions-asked charter and export service that I will be starting up soon. Bidding on the flights will commence shortly thereafter.

      braveinternetguy - 2011-05-02 01:48

      @Creeky - You know what, I really think many SAns - myself included - don't really care what happens after they leave. They can keep their billions, they can keep their fancy cars and fancy houses, they must just piss off out of government. Their wealth will soon dwindle and fade once the power has been taken back from them, and I think the shame, humiliation and embarrassment they will suffer for the rest of their lives, will be punishment enough. The rest of us will be too busy to bother with them. We will have work to do. We have South Africa to rebuild.

      Hux - 2011-05-02 07:04

      Sutcliffe....You are going down.............far down.

      maseratifitt - 2011-05-02 18:36

      braveinternetguy : We need every cent to rebuild SA. What should happen, is that all properties, shares and cash abroad, of any politically connected person or previously connected person, should be liquidated and returned to the SA fiscus. Our people have suffered for too long. I am sure the amount will run into Trillions, and we can make a huge difference to the quality of life of our people within a few short years after the ANC has gone.

    Building houses for the poor in Constantia. Not in my lifetime it won't happen. The ANC will turn the whole of Cape Town into a squatter camp just like they have done in the rest of the country and then they can start service delivery rioting there too. What a bunch of 'palookers' and juvenile delinguents and all those that are brain dead enough to support them.

    Wow this lack of crowd attendance is a huge slap in the face for all these thieves! I mean really we have the president who together with his motley crew can only get in 1000. So much for the coloured vote they talking about. They have very little to talk about in the way of solutions. I suppose they don't have solutions as they have brought the country down with regards to education, housing and healthcare. The only way they know how to react is to "slag off" the DA and the media. The reason why there is so much bad media is they as government are stealing the taxpayer blind. They (deployed cadres) live in luxury while the rest live in squalor! The ANC are not concerned with coloureds. They made this clear when it was revealed that Trevor Manuel was not black enough to run our country. Racist scumbags!!!

      coloured boy - 2011-05-02 13:27

  • sainsaudi - 2011-05-02 05:55

    “bosses and their media” do not need to spread messages of “despair”. This was a process that started at Polokwane when a mere 2400 people voted in this gang of kakistocrats and kleptocrats. They have not only done a disservice to the ANC, but to the country as a whole. Zuma and his multiple wives, numerous children and lavish lifestyle, Nzimande, the Communist, who drives an expensive car and lives in luxury, Malema with his R35,000 Breitelin watch and owns four cars, a minister who use tax payers' money to visit his girlfreind in prison in Switzerland,the Arms Deal, Aurora mines, expensive and legthy hotel stays, the list goes on...and the ANC talks about inequality!The only developments going on these days is how to fleece the South African economy of more money so that these kleptocratic cronies can get richer while the rest of the country get poorer.The people of the Western Cape and Cape Town have been liberated. And they know it.The tide has turned. Now I wonder when the ANC will declare either a one party state, or marshal law!They are the biggest threat to democracy and freedom.

      maseratifitt - 2011-05-02 20:01

      "They are the biggest threat to democracy and freedom". This is so true, sainsaudi. The ANC, however, brainwashes people into believing that freedom and democracy were achieved with the abolition of apartheid,while in fact this was only the first step. The next step should be to get rid of Arrogance, Nepotism and Corruption. Then the electoral system should be upgraded. Then society and government should be depoliticised. In the meantime real education should be tackled with warlike vigour. Only then will South Africa be free and democratic. The ANC does not look ahead, but constantly looks back, stirring hatred and division, because it suits their Gravy Train mentality,costing our people dearly.

  • GinSA1 - 2011-05-02 06:32

    'The rich are very rich and the majority are poor'. So he intends to change that to a few more rich (buddies in Government) and the poor very very poor. Bunch of twits! CT is the only place working in this country. So they want to take it over, and ride on the back of the good done by the DA to now, then we watch it crumble as all else has, and they'll blame it on Apartheid. Wankers, from Zuma right down!

    ANC and SACP only demonstrating they are bitter opponents of the DA which beet them in 2009. It is unfortunate that Blade Nzimande refers to the DA canidates as “two stooges and a madam”. This is how low they will go. Don't forget, Nzimande uttering these words is a national Minister.

    All the Rubbish spewed out by the ANC, is not being listened to. They had enough time to fix the problems, but used it instead to Rape and Pillage the country for their own benefit. The People have had more than enough. Go DA, Go Zille, Go to Hell ANC.

  • Proffie - 2011-05-02 09:29

    Cheap round for the ANC. Only had to buy 1000 T shirts and 1000 food parcels. Go DA!!!

  • nyatiphotography - 2011-05-02 09:41

    What does that say !! - The crap that the ANC has said for the last 17 years is not going to be acceptable anymore. They have failed to deliver on all fronts, plus they are all the biggest theives and corrupt idiots I have ever come across.

    So Cape Town is a city where the “rich are very rich and the majority are poor”?? Sounds like Nkandla, ne?
