It's run-up time for the elections. So we can expect some extra-nasty rhetoric from politicians like Julius Malema. As always, he is playing the race card more and more often.Obviously, this is to cover up his total lack of solutions for South Africa. Example: Malema was a huge supporter of Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela. So where's Venezuela now? Facing a ONE MILLION PERCENT INFLATION, according to the International Monetary Fund. Socialism works only until you run out of other people's money.Then there was Malema's enthusiastic support for Robert Mugabe. Before he came into power, Zimbabwe - then Rhodesia - was prosperous, exporting food to other nations. Now it's broke, with 95% unemployment, and having to buy food in for its people. Great role models for you, eh Julius?Not to mention your own very dodgy start in politics in Limpopo with tenders that have proven to be extremely flawed. Hardly a recommendation for a nation that right now is desperately trying to shake off the corruption of the Zuma-era that has directly contributed to the VAT increase, public hospitals that are a mess, SANRAL a dead dog, Denel mired in corruption, Eskom a ticking time bomb, etc., etc.So, Julius, just how do you think your 'nationalisation' proposals are going to save South Africa, when almost all our state-owned enterprises are in massive debt right now?No wonder you have to play the race card. It's all you have in your hand.
