Misogynistic and homophobic

2017-08-31 06:01

MDUDUZI Manana’s assault of a woman for calling him gay is generating new threads every day. Between Manana and his defender in chief, Bathabile Dlamini, it’s no longer clear who opened the Pandora’s Box of ANC misogynistic and homophobic secrets.

The desperate attempts to defend Manana expose the ANCWL for the fakery that it is. Firstly, when President Jacob Zuma was facing trial for allegedly raping Kwezi, these women stood by the accused. Secondly, when they sent a delegation to the recent ANC policy conference, bizarrely, they included six men, claiming “emotional weakness”. Today they’re at it again. An MP confesses to assaulting a woman and they’re defending him. They do all these spineless unprincipled things while telling the world we’re ready for a woman president from among their ranks. Really? The ANCWL is a lobby group entrenching patriarchy while masquerading as one advancing women’s interests. It has now also exposed itself as deeply homophobic by defending a man who feels insulted by being called gay. As deputy minister of Education, how are gay and lesbian children in schools meant to feel secure and protected from abuse by both the Education Ministry and the ANCWL, both of which are clearly led by deeply misogynistic homophobic hypocrites preaching one thing while doing the opposite?

This is very confused leadership that places vulnerable people at increased risk.
