The ‘ANC are sell-outs’

2013-03-22 08:32

Johannesburg-based Zanu-PF youth have accused the ANC of being sell-outs and of complicity in the murder of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Chairman Gift Mtete attacked the African National Congress while addressing Pan Africanist Congress of Azania supporters at a Human Rights Day event yesterday.

“You cannot separate political freedom from economic freedom. They [the ANC] proclaim that South Africa is a democracy, but they agreed with the Western powers to attack Libya,” Mtete was quoted as saying in today’s The Star.

“They gave a mandate to the Western powers to attack and kill the Libyan leader. There they are. They must be told that they are sell-outs.”

Mtete criticised the Gauteng government for organising music festivals as part of Human Rights Day celebrations.

According to the report, Mtete said South Africa was not a fully liberated country and those who had gathered at the cricket oval next to the George Thabe Stadium, where the Gauteng government was hosting its event, were enjoying crumbs left for them by the “colonialist regime”.
