Limpopo ANC backs nationalisation

2011-12-21 10:00

Polokwane - The ANC in Limpopo on Tuesday reiterated its call for nationalisation of mines and the taking of land without compensation.

Members were convinced that ending private ownership of economic resources would help realise "economic emancipation", the party's provincial elective conference declared on its last day.

"We reiterate our call for nationalisation of mines and other key strategic sectors like Sasol and ArcelorMittal," newly-elected provincial secretary Soviet Lekganyane said at the University of Limpopo's Turfloop Campus outside Polokwane.

Reading from the declaration which was later adopted by the conference, he said: "All productive land must be nationalised. Compensation must not be paid on the land itself, but on improvements. The price must be determined by the state through the state evaluator."

Economic emancipation

These were necessary steps towards "democratising" the economy, he said.

Delegates decided that "democratic" access to economic resources controlled by the state was one of the ingredients of "economic emancipation".

ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema had been spearheading the nationalisation debate, amidst criticism from the opposition and farming bodies who feared it would, among other things, deter foreign investment.

The government has maintained that nationalisation was not government policy.

Conference delegates committed themselves to the fight against corruption. Lekganyane said the party would be relentless in fighting opportunism within and outside the ANC-led alliance. This was "based on character assassination of fellow comrades and provincial leaders".

"We call on those with information on alleged corruption to refer to relevant institutions."

Accusation

The Congress of SA Trade Unions held a march against corruption two days before the ANC's conference started. This was seen as an effort at influencing the election outcome, an accusation which Cosatu denied.

The union federation had reportedly wanted Arts and Culture Deputy Minister Joe Phaahla elected provincial ANC chairperson. Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale was however voted into the post.

The conference said the national government's taking over the running of five Limpopo government departments should be used to improve "technical capacity", to restore delivery to the poor in Limpopo.

Delegates wanted the ANC's national policy conference to discuss the policy framework to guide the application of this intervention.

Discussion at the conference also centred around the autonomy of the ANC Youth League. Delegates said the league should be able to debate policy questions and leadership matters without fear or favour.

They also wanted a "political solution" to the suspensions of six ANCYL officials, including Malema, for ill discipline and bringing the party into disrepute. Such a solution would ease tensions between the ruling party and the league, they said.

ANC members in the province resolved to intensify "political education" to deal with ill discipline.

    Er, is this a surprise for anyone?

      Zuma is that guy that produces illegitimate children (out of wedlock). And now he wants to teach us about christianity?

      richard.hipkin - 2011-12-21 11:49

      @Squeegee and Gerhard - this is not about Christianity, go waffle about religion on the articles pertaining to them... The only reason the ANC Limpopo branch is calling for nationalisation is because they actually have no frigging clue what it is all about. They have NO plan on how to nationalise or how to "redistribute", there is no clear policy other than "want, want, want"..

      richard.hipkin - 2011-12-21 11:50

      @Gerhard, I didn't realise one HAD to be married to have children. What, does a magic cork pop out of your willy when you say "I do"?

      Bardy - 2011-12-21 12:11

      @ PointBlank - You never read the bible did you? It's against Christian believe to have children out of wedlock! This is why Gerhard is asking why Zuma want to teach us about Christianity when he himself does not live to it.

      Juan - 2011-12-21 13:17

      Well yes I thought nationalisation is not anc policy, well apparently it is now. @Gerhard no they use Christianity to brainwash their voters into voting for them. They have no respect for Christianity just like they have no respect for anything, period. These people make me sick. I am not a devought Christian follower but their lack of respect and abuse of the public I have nothing but contempt for

      Malema couldn't control his runny nose, he had to go to hospital for it. What makes him an expert on running the country?

      Rob - 2011-12-21 13:13

      The cynic in me advises you to reread the announcement. Only productive land is to be nationalised. The way things are going there won't be too much of that around.

    What about the land that the government already has? I think I would want to see how they use that before they start stealing it from elsewhere..

      Tc - 2011-12-21 11:01

      Sharmay, if you use somethning that you alrweady have it is NOT plundering and looting! The ANC is driven only by PLUNDERING and LOOTING! Do not fool yourself.

      Sharmay - 2011-12-21 12:45

      hahahahaha very true

      Dee - 2012-01-02 00:08

      That way they can prove how useless they are before they steal more from us. We should all stand together and get some justice somehow. Everytime I hit a pothole on the road or a taxi swerves in front of me I wish them dead and me out of the country.

  • Gary - 2011-12-21 10:18

    I love it how the ANC in each province seems to have their own agenda. There is ZERO consistancy in this circus that they call the ANC.

      Anything ANC related that comes out of Limpopo is a fat screw up. I'm still yet to hear one intellegent comment from that stupid province.

      Hans - 2011-12-21 10:47

      It's an insult to circus acts to call them a circus. They are beyond funny and stupid. At least a circus is something we all enjoy seeing.

      Juan - 2011-12-21 13:32

      It's all about one trying to outmanouvre the next for more power, prestige and gravy while the country and it's people are left to rot. That's why their finances is in such a mess, essencial services are not delivered and infrastructure is crumbling

      Prozzies are legal now. Limpopo imported them for the world cup. The disease and stench is still hanging around. I am from Zambia and have watched Zambia, then Zimbabwe (ex farmer), now South Africa go to zilch. Very sad. Let them have it. We'll come back when they have stuffed it all up.

      They are the laughing stock of the world at every dinner party. Now we have a president who mocks Christianity. Does he nor realize that there are thousands of orphans because the parents have vrekked from aids.He needs to know that there is only one religion and that is Cristianity.No shower head should comment about things so morally superior to him

      Peter - 2011-12-21 12:23

      @Saksak Motsepe...probably u are right but it could be a force of good as well depending on local demand for the resources. 1 }..In the case of South africa i would not favor land distribution because there is no local demand and the land is not as easy to use like across the border.But for mines yes i favor nationalisation because the West does it as well...so mines should be owned by local communities black or white it does not matter.They have a choice to twin with foreign investors if they wish.. 2}Lets not believe that nationalizing resources will lead to a falling economy.It can be the opposite.Zimbabwe did not fall because of land grab...No. It was through sabotage..not paying taxes and we engineered this to try to force Mugabe out. Had we not done that , Zimbabwe would not have fallen..not that easily.

      Hunter - 2011-12-21 13:10

      @ Peter the people of Zimbabwe do not pay taxes becuase they are not commercially producing agricultural produce to gain an income. No income = no tax.

      Peter - 2011-12-21 14:05

      @Hunter...{@ Peter the people of Zimbabwe do not pay taxes becuase they are not commercially producing agricultural produce to gain an income. No income = no tax...} I dont agree with you there...your point is right but i don't think you know Zimbabwe well. Let me educate u a bit: In the first 20yrs the economy was a mixture of agriculture , secondary as well as tertiary sector economy. The agricultural economy was dominated by 4000 white famers and the cash crop was tobacco circa 90% of their income. In the sector they employed about 180000 workers and these are mainly malawian and Mozambicans. I do not kno many Zimbabweans employed in farms except farm managers or specialised service providers like vet surgeons. To further correct your point , most Zimbabweans had Jobs in the secondary and tertiary sector like banks , insurance , manufacturing etc. This is were the bulk of the taxation was coming from...altho i admit , tobacco earned us pretty good foreign currency. Maybe you a judging us by the Zimbabweans working menial Jobs in South Africa to earn a living. I admit , rural Zimbabweans were affected most and they spilled across the border. If you want a better view of Zim talent just look away from Africa. Zimbabweans are the first Africans to open and manage a FTSE listed private African bank managing over £40Bn Funds, i know smart companies in nanotechnology , telecoms , software services operated by Zimbabweans overseas.This is what we have done in barely a decade.

    They spill out the word "democracy" without knowing the real meaning. They are best described as "ineptocratics", which also applies to their neighbour north of the border. Introduce nationalisation and land invasion at your peril, you brainless idiots! For God's sake, lets have a new party in power at the next elections.

      I just hope I am out of here by then. Fighting the Zim war on a farm with a 2 year old kid, being 8 months pregnant and having a PATU husband in the bush 2 weeks out of 5, my friend's babe would have been same age as my daughter... bayonetted to death.

  • Moloto Mabonchi - 2011-12-21 10:43

    Nationalisation is a good idea, but making it work is what difficult but simple. You simply need dedicated workers, which we do not have in the public sector. You also need good administration which at present is not according to talent but comradeship. You also need corrupt free state, but what with tenderpreneurship being the order of the day and provincial governments being a law unto themselves when it comes to administration of finances? I just hope to get a piece of lant if this succeeds, so that I can atleas manage to feed my family when our economy crumbles.

      Peter - 2011-12-21 11:53

      @Moloto Mabonchi...man thats impressive. I like the way u think . The wave is unavoidable and the problem is most people are not wise.Instead of trying to stop it just shape it into something which can benefit everyone and avoid derailing the economy. My fear is RSA could be heading for the worse times than Zimbabwe not because of the wave arising but its the resistance which is costly.

  • Dave - 2011-12-21 10:44

    Here we go again. Communism has failed and we are now only left with North Korea still practising this form of governance. Europe's flirtation with socialism, communism's little brother, is coming to an end. Intelligent leadership would be looking to a viable alternative to these two failed ideologies. Then again, intelligent leadership requires intelligent leaders.

    most of these people calling for nationalisation have not done the calculations, malema and company want to do this bcos they will benefit no the poor people. They have passed corruption course with A+ and they meet the minimun requirement for anc leadership position. Limpopo wake up or just luk at your nextdoors Zimbabwe ull c....

      Malema reminds me of that dictator pig in the book animal farm, ithink his name was napolean,if Malema and Co. get what they want then he will tyell his followers that poverty is just part of life,we cant all be rich and all people are equal but some people are more equal than others, I can see this coming

    The ANC in Limpoopoo has already nationalised all tenders, awarding them to Juju and his pals.

Black SA please, please, please stop swallowing the outpourings of these idiots. Get off your knees and rise up! Educate yourselves out of the deep pit of ignorance where this anc would imprison you. Nationalisation has only worked in very developed societies, under strict practise, with honest distribution and decisions made by minds sound in business. Nationalisation is not a space at the trough for every snout. The head pigs are too greedy for this. Do any of you that vote for this ineptocracy think that you are going to see one cent of the `riches' of nationalisation? You delude yourselves and this is what the criminal anc is relying upon: your stupidity.

It is not everyone who suffers in Zimas it is everyone who suffers in SA, those who are politically connected benefit in both countries.

Probably University of Limpopo and no wonder.

    "All productive land must be nationalized” It is interesting, only the productive land will be nationalized, not the thousands of unproductive black owned farms because only one percent of black owned farms are productive with the supervision of white managers. It just demonstrate that they do not want to build their own productive farms they just want to enter and start farming as if they have developed it. This tactic will only run the country into starvation quicker and fast track SA to another beggar’s states in Africa. I have witness a few farms bought by the government for black upcoming farmers and black land claimers, there are nothing left of that productive farm lands, not even the luxurious farm houses and workers accommodation was spared by the now owners. It is no longer a productive farm and that will happen to everything left into the hands of uneducated hooligans.

Anyway we will give the mines back once we have emptied them.We should ask the rest of the world to stop all aid and 50% of them would vrek in a year or two . You can only nationalize if you stay alive and most of them only stay alive because the kind heroes from overseas give aid money . If that stops more than nationalization will stop.

This ain't funny its sad because there is a agenda and reality to all this crap. Please open your eyes. As South Africans we have a small window open to us to try and save our beautiful country, a country I truly love, I love my fellow South Africans, no matter they're colour and religion.

    This Malema that is singing nationalism today applied for mining licence and it was not granted. Mathale already has a foot on mining industry, his wife is directly involved in the industry. All these fellows just want to expand their wealth bank throuth natinalisation. There is nothing called nationalisation in practice, the people are not going to benefit, the mines are going be sold to China and we will never see where the money is going. Let's simply call this Chinalisation!

      South Africa in 1994 had 300 000 farmers of which only 30 000 commercial farmer now remain. There are huge tracks of land available for 'new' farmers to come in and take over the farming, but nobody does. Many land claims have now being handed over and ninety percent of the fully functional farms have completely stagnated and are now producing nothing. Have you not seen the increase in food prices over the last two years. As you continue to rub your hands in anticipation of corrupt politicians making you promises they can't keep. Let me tell you now, so that you can know, by the end of next year there is going to be a major crises in South Africa with regards food supply. Prices of food necessities by March next year will be up over 40%. You will be slave, all of South Africa will be slaves because the ANC could not do the job of governance correctly. We will be slaves to other nations for their food. Freedom comes through work and production, not through political grand standing and false promises.

    This Limpopo province is sounding like a colony of Zimbabwe. It is time for the ANC to nip this talk in the bud. Best we make Zimbabwe slave to South Africa and not the other way round. This call for Nationalism sounds like old man Mugabe's utterances drifting across the borders. Wake up ANC!

    R260 BILLION!!!!! THIS IS WHY NATIONALISATION CANNOT BE ALLOWED- THEY WILL STEAL: R260bn missing in Angola’ 2011-12-21 14:54 Human Rights Watch says Angola’s government must account for $32 billion (about R260 billion) missing from State coffers. The New York-based organisation says that money should be benefiting the people of the oil-rich southern African state, who mostly live in poverty. The rights group said today the missing money was identified by the International Monetary Fund in a December report and is believed to be linked to the state oil company Sonangol. It includes $7.1 billion transferred into escrow accounts overseas and $24.9 billion that appear as “an unexplained discrepancy in government accounts”. The IMF said the money disappeared between 2007 and last year. The rights group previously identified more than $4 billion in oil revenue that went missing from Angolan government accounts between 1997 and 2002. - Sapa - AP

      The IMF can and should find this cash, put a block on all these accounts and return the money to the people of Angola with immediate affect. All companies and banks that are involved in aiding this pillage should also be held accountable. Maybe it is just easy business for them as well, it all falls in the same category as cash from blood diamonds.
