Too little too late from the ANC

10 October 2018, 08:38

It cannot go unnoticed that once again there were recently questionable election results in Zimbabwe but only an apparent condoning of this by the powers that be. I would think that in this light there would have been condolences expressed regarding the cholera deaths but yet there have not been any that I have heard of.

This kind of silence is reminiscent of the Mbeki era which raises big questions regarding land reform which has taken centre stage because clearly we don’t want to go the Zim route and indeed it has not in the Western Cape.

Whilst Bokaforia and political positioning have been understandably prevalent I think that the resignation of Mr. Nene was only the tip of the iceberg and the fallout from Zuptagate is far from over. But why has it taken so long? Because of cheap populism like the Jobs Summit. Would it not have been better to look at the symptoms and not the diagnosis?

Things like our high population growth rate exacerbated by the open borders and the joke is our land borders are only about 30% of our total borders. Should there not be some kind of policy in this regard because it is not tenable as it is when one considers the ongoing retrenchments in the mining sector, our second biggest source of employment?
