Should the Western Cape break away?

2012-01-05 08:13

Is it time that the Cape Province rethinks its attachment to the Republic of South Africa?

With the ANC failing dismally to control it's own, and cadre deployment being the cause for the entire bankruptcy of more and more government departments, from the very top all the way down to the lowest levels.

And now the call by it's non-government alliance partners to nationalize and scrap the provinces.

Especially now with members of the ANC Alliance now calling for the total abolishment of South Africa's provinces is it not also the best opportunity for citezens of the provinces to rethink the union of the republic and call for self governance.

Can it legally be done?

In 2008, a political movement calling for the return to independence of the Cape resurged in the shape of the political organisation, the Cape Party. The Cape Party contested their first elections on 22 April 2009.

It makes sense to cut away the bonds that tie a life raft from a sinking ship. And it is clear even to the ANC alliance partners that the ANC is a sinking ship. 

While Vavi shouts to throw the useless overboard maybe it is time to cut the losses all together and let the whole shebang sink.
