Vote ANC to solve problems, says Zuma

2011-04-30 22:47

Cape Town - The only way to solve the problems of housing and poverty in Cape Town is to vote for the ANC, party president Jacob Zuma told the people of Gugulethu on Saturday.

This was the central message at each of the stops he made in Gugulethu during his campaign ahead of the May 18 local government election.

Addressing hundreds of people who had gathered to see him, Zuma said the Democratic Alliance (DA) was not doing a good job in the city or in the Western Cape.

"There is a myth that the municipalities of the Western Cape are the most excellent... that its performing... in fact its the worst run municipality.

"The DA is only looking after the rich people. There are lots of problems, but we can't solve them because you are under the wrong municipality. We can sort out the problems only if you vote for the ANC. Lets vote and after that sort out all the problems."

Zuma said that he had been around Cape Town and was very disappointed at what he saw.

He described the situation as "very bad".

He said the only way people living in Gugulethu, Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain could live better lives was if they voted for the ANC.

One little girl at the Kick Hostel Zuma visited on Saturday morning carried a poster saying "we want solutions, no more explanations".

Wrong leadership


But Zuma told the crowd gathered in the narrow, muddy street in front of a row of shacks, that while he was aware of their problems, the ANC could not do anything because the city was under the wrong leadership.

"The challenge in the Western Cape is that the Western Cape is not in our [ANC] hands. All other metros know very well they will win, but in the Western Cape its a challenge... so we must vote for the ANC."

He said while the policy of the ANC was to change the lives of the people, it could not be done in Cape Town unless the ANC was in power.

He called for the libertaion of the Western Cape describing it as an "extremely apartheid system" that encouraged "separate development".

He encouraged people to become volunteers and to spread the word for everyone to vote for the ANC in order to liberate the metro.

To loud cheers and applause from a hall at the Zolani centre packed with people wearing white "Vote ANC" t-shirts he said: "Its [the ANC] not like every other political party. We were formed by the nation for the nation, to liberate people, to change their lives... On the 18th of May, vote for the ANC."

He described the the election as "do or die" for the party in the Western Cape.

The media

Zuma also criticised the media, etv in particular, for campaigning against the party.

The hall erupted in applause when he said that opposition parties were supported by large in the media.

The party's mayoral candidate for Cape Town, Tony Ehrenreich, as well as its provincial chairperson, Marius Fransman, accompanied Zuma. There was also a strong police presence with caspers and police vans circling the streets and closing off roads around Gugulethu.

Fransman and Ehrenreich encouraged people to vote the ANC back into power.

"We [ANC] are coming back and taking Cape Town back to the ANC. We know what our forefathers had promised our people," said Ehrenreich.

Fransman said the ANC in the Western Cape had a plan and had given notice to the DA.

"We appeal to you, we are asking you to go and vote... We must get the maximum number of voters out to vote... We are asking you to make sure we reclaim on the 18th of May the City of Cape Town."

Zuma was expected to address the Congress of South African Trade Unions May Day rally in Athlone on Sunday.

    Hey all......the ANC election-poster-pics was taken in the WC btw.

      Archie Bunke - 2011-04-30 23:09

      @lilo69 - Have you studied the poster closely - "lets work together" - 6 people WATCHING whilst one is actually working - See the same poster picture in the ANC manifesto - page 06 - www.anc.org.za/docs/manifesto/2011/lge_manifeston.pdf.

      Lets work together is an ANC oxymoron, as is service delivery.

NOBODY WILL WANT TO INVEST IN RSA AS LONG AS HE AND HIS CRONIES ARE IN POWER. I WOULD RATHER HAVE SOMEONE LIKE LEKOTA IN CHARGE IF WE CAN'T HAVE HELEN ZILLE. LONG RULE DA!!!!

      Creeky - 2011-05-01 07:22

      Once again Zuma LIES openly and with a STRAIGHT FACE!!!! Zuma.... the reason the Squatter camps are like that is because THE ANC PUT THEM THERE!!!! Which part don't you get? Idiot! Go look at the Eastern Cape, Limpopo, Northern Cape, Free State and Mphumalanga.... and tell them the same...YOUR ANC f*ct up and now you want to blame the DA for it!!!!!! As the afrikaans saying goes.... "ARME DOOS"!!!!!

      Whistleblower - 2011-05-01 07:50

      Calm down Cheeky I thought it was the National Party government who put black folk in townships and the like. I will say it is ESSENTIAL for the ANC to keep townships and squatter camps in squalor and ruin, as it helps perpetuate the notion that apartheid is alive and well.

      Wonderboy - 2011-05-01 09:45

      @ whistleblower, Creeky was talking about squatter camps not townships.

      Rob - 2011-05-01 12:08

      ITS NOW TIME FOR ALL THOSE GENUINE SUPPORTERS OF THE ANC and supporters of what the ANC really stood for to vote for a stronger opposition. This is not about getting the ANC out of power, but about creating a strong opposition which is able to hold the party to account. Loyal ANC members owe it to the ANC to pull them back on track. Those who vote ANC now are not voting for the ANC, but for the sick and twisted shadow of its former self. IF you vote ANC today, you are voting for your brothers and sisters to remain in poverty. You are voting for a few elite to rape the country with corruption. You are voting for a failed state. Do the right thing and hold the ANC to account by creating a stronger opposition.

      Rob - 2011-05-01 12:24

      Voting for the ANC today is the same as voting for the NP pre '94. Loyal South Africans fought to get rid of one corrupt regime and to do that used the ANC as a vehicle. But the vehicle has been stolen by criminals who care only about themselves. Loyal South Africans owe to the memory of the morals of the struggle to take the country back from this new corrupt regime. You see, there is a new struggle now. Its the struggle to get rid of the corrupt ANC and its especially the duty of loyal members to vote more power to the opposition. The struggle is not over - spread the word.

      Exactly. Like a wizard - only the ANC will know the antidote to the poison they've made - that is what they want the electorate to believe.

      Pen Of Zorro - 2011-05-01 11:09

      GOODLUCK TO the ANC on their way down! Everyone including the international community have seen the true intentions of the blacks in this country who want to "own" the minority races in RSA and make them "work" for blacks as menial servants. A typical African-type mentaility of ruling over everything.

      croix - 2011-05-01 11:15

      Exactly! They will "solve" problems like they've solved them all over the rest of OUR country?? The only 'problem' they have managed to solve is their personal cashflow requirements.

  • DoublySalmon - 2011-04-30 23:06

    Every time the ANC won an election in South Africa the average life expectancy has fallen 2 years. The human development index has deteriorated. The gini-coefficient is worse. The ANC is worse than the NP. The only alternative is the DA. Vote ANC if you wish to see the masses suffer.

      DoublySalmon - 2011-04-30 23:12

      Provinces that recorded the highest HIV prevalence were KwaZulu-Natal (39.5%), Mpumalanga (34.7%), Free State (30.1%) and the North-west (30%). The Northern Cape and Western Cape recorded the lowest prevalence at 17.2% and 16.9% respectively. ANC slogan - where we govern people are dying, problem solved.

      ? - 2011-05-01 00:34

      @doublysalmon. Ahhh,,u are a true spin doctor arent u ? What u fail to mention is that coloured people who are the majority in the western and northern cape have historically had better access to education than blacks,hence the reason the HIV infection rates are lower there in those two provinces. Cmon man,who are u trying to fool here? It has nothing to do with Helen Zille and the DA,and by the way,the northern cape is governed by the ANC in case u forgot

      Gatvol - 2011-05-01 05:08

      You can't use HIV infection rates to measure a party's performance. How they deal with HIV infected people, well that's a different story. The reason why the Western & Northern Cape has much lower figures are because these provinces has a different cultural and ethnic make up from the rest of the country. I am not an ANC supporter, but this seems to be a poor yardstick to use to measure performance

      DoublySalmon - 2011-05-01 06:07

      Remember when the ANC government's official policy was that HIV doesn't exist? 5 million people are facing death because the ANC employs friends rather than qualified people. The other measures, HDI and gini - they measure the ANC's performance. So far the NP did a better job at uplifting the masses than the ANC has done. How screwed up is that?

      ? - 2011-05-01 10:50

      @Gatvol, Exactly

  • Mike_L - 2011-04-30 23:09

    For several years the ANC has been bussing people into the Western Cape in order to boost the numbers of voting cattle.... this despite the fact that there are insufficient employment opportunities for the newcomers. The ANC has aggravated poverty in the Western Cape and is now exploiting the misery for cheap political gain. I can only hope that people will be savvy enough to see how they are being cynically (ab)used by this most malignant party of self-serving pigs. Let them look beyond the Western Cape (to the Eastern Cape, for example) to see what ANC "governance" has wrought.

      Gatvol - 2011-05-01 05:24

      I live in Hout Bay which are quite a secluded suburb in Cape Town, and our local informal settlement Imizamu Yethu has seen explosive growth over the past 10 years with an influx of people from the Eastern Cape, Nigeria, Zimbabwe etc. These people can't find jobs as the tiny local economy can only provide a fraction of them with jobs. Crime in the local area has also became rife as a result of this. Can one blame the DA for this.. No! It is the economy that provides most of the jobs, and allows everybody, incl. the poor to sustain themselves. I suspect that the challenges Hout Bay faces can be true for the rest of the country as well

      Pen Of Zorro - 2011-05-01 11:17

      Yep, by the time blacks realize that nothing on this planet can bring 40mil of them out of poverty its going to be too f^*&ing late! Among themselves the plan is to take all businesses,power and land from rich whites thinking that this will make all the blacks rich. Little do they know that even if they succeded in this endeavor - each black will only get R66thousand for one year only. Come the next year and they years after that - NOTHING !!!

      Maddy-CT - 2011-05-01 13:14

      @ Gatvol. Agreed, and there is also no public transport available in Hout Bay apart from the taxis. Hout Bay is heavily dependent on the tourism industry, and if that is destroyed then there will be even greater unemployment in the area. A catch 22 situation.

    Zuma, we voted in the previous elections for the ANC and for 16 years nothing was done in the WC. Things are the same that it was in 1994. The only change came when the DA took control of the City of Cape Town from the ANC. At least there is good governance, clean administration, fit for purpose appointments, no jobs for cronnies, no tenders for buddies, no corruption. It is an insult to ask that we vote for the ANC. The over-concentrated Coloureds have already decided who to vote for.. that is to maintain good governance. Please check the AG's audit reports of all the municipalities which are not run by the DA.

      Gatvol - 2011-05-01 05:42

      I take offense to the over-concentration of coloreds in the Cape statement that has been made by the ANC. You might very well say that SA has an over concentration of blacks. But then one would be labeled a racist for saying that.

Stop lying to the people in South Africa Stop allowing your friends and family stealing from our hard earned tax money and stop giving tenders to people who do not have the experience or brains to do the job, and what makes you think that you can fix things after they voted if you cant even fix things during the time you have been in power. NOT EVERYBODY IS YOU FOOL. My advice to the people of South Africa vote for what a better life not empty promises

    It is obvious to me that the ANC is using the same recipe as pre-1994. Entice enough people from especially the Eastern Cape with false promises to migrate to the Western Cape. When that is not enough bus them in. This put an unmanageable burden to accommodate the influx on the previous government which led to false perceptions regarding so-called "service delivery". The ANC could then play good cop against bad cop and gather votes from their predominantly naive support base. Right now the ANC see the DA as a white government that must go. The IEC is run by the ANC and is just as incapable of keeping record of legitimate residents that qualify for votes in the Western Cape as the ANC is of eradicating nepotism and corruption.

Vote DA to help eradicate this highly problematic 'in-af-eish-ANC'!!

  • Utopian - 2011-05-01 08:27

    Things were worse in Cape Town when the ANC was in control. The poor people of Murumuru have been promised houses again - will they fall for that again? Is it legal to 'sort candidate lists out later'? That's not democracy and it's illegal. The Western Cape's performance is tops, even according to ANC stats, so he's lying. For example, the WC was the only province logically prepared for the 2 extra school holidays - for the rest of the country it's shambles. Teaching in Gauteng, I also know the matric results were cooked to get Gauteng above Western Cape schools for the first time ever. It is so dishonest.

      Shorts1 - 2011-05-01 09:36

      Is it legal to 'sort candidate lists out later'? Probably not. However, what the ANC are inadventently acknowledging is that they don't have any candidates with the genuine ability to effectively manage local municipality affairs. It is therefore very obvious that what they intend to do is to further implement their policy of cadre deployment & cronism by then appointing / rewarding those who are seen to have been loyal ANC members to whatever positions that they have available having secured victory at the polls. Let us deny them as many of these 'victories' as we can & help stamp out this 'in-af-eish-ANC' by voting for the DA.

  • simon - 2011-05-01 08:29

    Since ANC misrule commenced in 1994, only problems have ensued, nothing has ever been solved. It's time for change. The future of this country does not include the ANC.

    Liar Liar! No we can add pathological liar to list of colourful adjectives that describe thee leader of the South African people! Amoung those names are cirminal, rapist and poligamist. The ANC's legacy is failure and deceit. The economy is worse, the water works are terrible, the public health is a dissaster. The ANC is desperately scrambeling to keep votes by making empty threats and beating the appartheid-dog yet once again. Everytime before elections, we see the same propoganda! Vote ANC because all whites are evil and wanna bring appartheid back... Perhaps the people should evaluate the facts not the empty words.

    Why did he not come up with this MASTER PLAN when they ruled the WC?

      Spoofed - 2011-05-01 11:22

      Because there is no master plan. Not one that concerns the public anyway. The only Plan he has is to get more money to feed his fat wives.

    Of course the incompetent fool would never give voice to the fact that he recognizes the obvious: that the ANC is a veritable problem factory with its floor space growing exponentially. The tragedy is that the electorate knows it (witness the all-to-frequent labour strikes and protests), but lacks the gumption, intelligence and simple common sense to vote for a change.

    More election bullsh! The anc want TOTAL POWER as in North Korea. If they get it then there will be a reaction as in Tunisia/Egypt/Libia. The anc will generate a violent reaction! We do not want that. So Vote against the anc.

    "There is a myth that the municipalities of the Western Cape are the most excellent". Myth? Is it alsa a myth that national government gave full budgetary allocation only to the Western Cape - Is Pravin Gordhan a DA plant? Actually, I think marijuana must be an ANC plant - Zuma's clearly been smoking something if he thinks anyone with half a brain believes this crap - that he would say these things is an insult to all South Africans - he knows that this is no more than Orwellian doublespeak and yet has the barefaced audacity to say it anyway. Does he think we don't read, watch, observe through our own eyes - perhaps the question should be, "does he think?"
