Durban - The quality of education in the country is poor, NFP president Zanele Magwaza-Msibi said on Sunday.

"Our education system is one of the worst in the world," she told hundreds of National Freedom Party supporters in KwaMashu, north of Durban, as the party celebrated its second anniversary.

"On paper, the ANC puts education as its number one priority, but it is failing to implement what it promises."

She said the African National Congress was failing to deliver text-books and stationery, to ensure proper infrastructure in schools, and to pay teachers adequate and decent salaries.

She also criticised the ANC for failing to resolve the problems of poverty and unemployment.

"Political freedom is meaningless to most of our people when they are still caught in economic slavery," Magwaza-Msibi said.

She said the party was opposed to Eskom's proposed 16% tariff increase in each of the next five years.

She also used the opportunity to announced that, for the first time next year, the NFP will contest the general election at national level and in all the provinces.

The party was launched on 25 January 2011, and obtained 2.4% of the national vote and 10.4% of the vote in KwaZulu-Natal in the municipal election that year. The previous general election was in 2009.

Magwaza-Msibi said the party had, since its inception, gained thousands of new members.
