Remember Madiba’s words

2016-03-09 06:00

IF the overwhelming majority of ANC MPs voted to show their confidence in President Jacob Zuma, then obviously voters’ feelings don’t matter to them anymore.

If the ANC will not do anything about Zuma replacing finance ministers, costing South Africa R500 billion, then there is nothing we can do except oust the ANC as the ruling party.

Not voting by disappointed ANC supporters is only half as effective as making the effort to vote for another party.

The great Nelson Mandela once said: “If the ANC does to you what the apartheid government did to you, then you must do to the ANC what you did to the apartheid government.”

The apartheid regime never listened to the majority in SA and the Zuma-led ANC does not either. Let’s honour the memory of Madiba at the 2016 polls.
