A plan to EFF up SA

Malema's proposals are ludicrous

Do followers of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) understand politics?

In Tembisa and Seshego, EFF leader Julius Malema said his party would:

»?Increase the salaries of civil servants by 50%;

»?Stop banks from repossessing houses;

»?Double social grants (representing a 100% increase);

»?Not allow leaders to send their children to private schools;

»?Disentitle leaders from accessing subsidies; and

»?Sentence corrupt leaders to 20 years in prison.

His statements are a positive indication that the EFF’s economic policies could tear the country apart in less than a year.

Malema’s statement that banks will be prohibited from repossessing houses from individuals who default on payments for unknown reasons can only excite some citizens who are completely clueless about the economic system.

Corruption charges differ with severity. Twenty years for any corruption charge is unresearched.

The ruling party does not interfere with court rulings in accordance with the country’s Constitution. It is up to the court to decide on the relevant sentence.

The EFF’s statement that MPs should use their salaries to buy cars, houses and for travelling can only be believed by people who trust anything that comes out of a politician’s mouth.

The education system in South Africa cannot be transformed simply by increasing teachers’ salaries.

A lot should be done in the area of education itself.

The EFF should make credible statements that will also attract academics and old citizens – not just the unemployed and those who have little knowledge of politics and economics.
