As it is published on the front page of the Cape Party’s website, it is true that Mahatma Ghandi said, “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.”

This instability, infighting in the ruling party, its youth league and the intensifying division of the country along racial lines is just one of the many concerns that are keeping international investors away from the region. In the end it is all about integrity and trust. This has a dire impact on the country in terms of employment and socio economics.

  • By becoming independent.

The United Nations will help the Non-Self-Governing Territory to implement the act of self-determination.”
