ANC 'dishonest' about nationalisation

2011-06-27 20:54
Cape Town - The Freedom Front Plus on Monday accused the ANC of being dishonest about nationalisation.

The ANC was silently supporting the policy of nationalisation and appropriation despite party leadership's views that nationalisation was not ANC policy, FF Plus spokesperson Conrad Beyers said in a statement.

"This follows after the ANC in the North West officially sided with the ANC Youth League and supported the nationalisation of mines, according to media reports," he said.

It was the first time that a body within the ANC had supported such a policy.

"The FF Plus has warned that the ANC's planned economic experiment to launch a sharpened economic attack on a portion of the South African population will be detrimental for the whole country, including the poorer part of the population," said Beyers.

He said the nationalisation of core industries was associated worldwide with countries that could not make it economically.

The current uncertainty about nationalisation was already damaging the economy due to disinvestment and "the frightening away of investors".

All South Africans, both black and white, had an interest in the debate.

"The ANC is not going to stop with the nationalisation of mines. After the mines the farms, banks and pensions will follow.

"It is extremely important that South Africans urgently and clearly demonstrate their opposition to the ANC's radicalism," Beyers said.

Unemployment and a massive increase in poverty were the inevitable consequence of the economic damage to the country due to nationalisation and appropriations - as was the case in Zimbabwe.

"When one shoots the white stripes of a Zebra, the animal dies - also the black stripes of the Zebra.

"The ANC is busy with a dangerous game which will be to the detriment of the whole of South Africa," Beyers said.
