ANC today: the 'angels and devils' political party

11 February 2019, 13:35

Looking at the current ANC, amid the latest revelations by the Zondo Commission, it's clear that the current ANC is a party of of two very clear halves.

On the one side, the 'angels' - although that is maybe stretching things just a tiny bit far...

It's comprised of the 'good guys' - headed by Cyril Ramaphosa, along with Tito Mboweni, Pravin Gordhan and Reserve Bank governor Lesetja Kganyago. Guys with a good track record and the ability to do the job. A pity that Nhlanha Nene has opted out of his position - anyone who can refuse a R600 000 bribe, with R6m to come - deserves to be considered an angel. 

Maybe, maybe on the side of the angels is also Police Chief Bheki Cele, although the stink of a certain lease agreement in Pretoria with Roux Shabangu does still hang around him. New Public Prosecutor Shamila Batohi seems to be a good selection, though she still has to prove herself when she starts in February with a massive case load, taking over from the limp and terminally paralysed Sheep.

On the 'devil' side - a large crop of ANC leaders, as is becoming very clear from the 'Gupta Leaks' and the testimonies at the Zondo Commission, especially with Agrizzi currently singing like a canary. Names that are still in the ANC top leadership certainly come to mind, from its  former head honcho all the way down.

The big question is: will the angel side of the ANC win in the coming election? Or will the devils pull off a coup, working furiously as they are behind the scenes?

South Africa's future depends totally on the outcome. Are we still going to be governed by the people who have been - and still are - raping the public money pot without a shred of conscience - and thereby massively robbing the poor of our country?

If many billions had not been so selfishly stolen by the dark side of the ANC (no skin colour reference whatsoever intended here), SA's poor would today have far better education, greatly improved sanitation, more healthcare, more housing, greater job skills and better quality of life.

The election this year is the classic confrontation. There's no doubt that the ANC will win - but will the angels or the devils in the party retain future power? (And hopefully without the help of the proven corrupt EFF - utter hypocrites who wear overalls over their Guccis and have no workable policies whatsoever, only stoking racism to deflect criticism of themselves.)

Already the political parties are bringing their best PR guns to bear. 

But ultimately, South Africa can only rise out of its current dreadful slump if governed in future by the capable and  honest 'angel' side of the terminally divided ANC. With the devils then confined to the abyss of our prisons.
Let the heavenly clash begin.
