ANC meets Afrikaners

The majority of people are marginalised by the party they have voted for and put into power.

Civilians protest and burn tyres, libraries and houses of wards councillors because they are frustrated by the lack of service delivery, but the ANC fails to address the problems.

Yet the party decides to have a cosy meeting with apartheid’s beneficiaries, Afrikaners.

The reasons for the ANC to meet them are baseless. It knows where it is failing.

People protest on a daily basis about unemployment, lack of service delivery, nepotism, corruption, crime and tenderpreneurs who do sloppy work and do not even finish the work they have.

People live in abject poverty and miserable, squalid conditions in townships, villages and squatter camps, depending on inadequate handouts from government.

Black people in this country are still waiting for a better life, but our leaders are busy parading for a photo shoot with the remnants of PW Botha, Hendrik Verwoerd, Barry Hertzog and DF Malan.

If this is a pure act of electioneering, maybe ZumaNtashe should ask themselves who put them in power and who continues to vote for them even if they are doing nothing?

Yet just 18 years into our democratic dispensation, people who marginalised and treated black people as baboons and pigs pretend to be victims.

Afrikaners are not sufferers but conquerors and any attempt by this minority group to play the victim should be dismissed.

I wonder why the ANC feels indebted to Afrikaners.

White people, especially Afrikaners, never bought into the dream of a Rainbow Nation that was fed to us after 1994 because they are scared that we will take the land they stole from blacks.

The minority capitalists who benefited during apartheid are now a priority for the ANC.

So now, the Afrikaners are autonomous and are treated as a separate race. The group that met the ANC included all the usual suspects, the very institutions that developed, implemented and supported apartheid.

No wonder the ANC decided to meet with this tribal group – the party endorses everything they do.

When rich Afrikaners complain, the ANC sends an influential delegation to speak to them, but when blacks in squatter camps complain, their grievances fall on deaf ears.

It really shows that if you are economically powerless, you are treated like a doormat. Soon they will be meeting millions of illegal foreigners who feel alienated in a foreign land.
