Minority front wants to end quotas

2014-03-14 00:00

IF the Minority Front becomes the next government, it will scrap affirmative action and other race-based quotas.

The party would push for a commission or a ministry to protect minority rights. It would make HIV/Aids a notifiable disease, and would give more bursaries to study TB and HIV/Aids. It also promised to increase pension grants to R2 000, extend the child support grant up to 18 years of age, and ensure widows and single mothers received social grants.

This is according to some of the promises contained in the party’s manifesto that was launched at a Durban hotel yesterday.

The choreographed launch was reminiscent of the antics of its late founding leader Amichad Rajbansi with his wife and incumbent, Shameen Thakur-Rajbansi, entering the venue to the sounds of Eye of the Tiger and ululation from party members.

Some of the posters that adorned the walls at the venue included “Do it for Raj” and “Keep the Tiger’s Legacy”.
